Barbie Banned?

Yes, some people would like to see Barbie dolls banished from store shelves:
    Her measurements are still 36-18-38 as Barbie turns 50 this week.

    But if one West Virginia lawmaker has his way, Barbie could be banned in the Mountain State.

    "I just hate the image that we give to our kids that if you're beautiful, you're beautiful and you don't have to be smart," said Del. Jeff Eldridge of Lincoln County, W. Va.

    Eldridge proposed a bill to ban sales of Mattel's blond bombshell and others like her because it puts to much emphasis on physical beauty but he's finding it hard to get people to sign on.

    "I knew a lot of people were going to joke about it and make fun of me," said Eldridge. "I couldn't get anybody to sign on the bill with me and I said I'm still going to introduce it."

Sounds like someone really need to get a hobby.

I would like to see who this guy is married to. This has feminism written all over it.
