New thinner Barbie doll may fuel rising eating disorders in young women

Designer Christian Louboutin thinks the already unrealistically thin Barbie doll's legs are too heavy and is redesigning a newer, thinner version due out in the states next year. This move may help to fuel the already rising incidence of eating disorders among women in the U.S. who strive to obtain impossibly thin figures.

The new Barbie will have even thinner legs because Louboutin found the doll’s “…ankles too fat,” according to the New York Daily News.

I honeslty think that is disgusting. As if the image that barbie conveys isnt unrealistic enough they want to make her smaller and slimmer? No wonder more and more girls are suffering from ED's. I know images like this in the media are what triggered me. I hope they dont change her.
