Mattel Releases Waxing/Shaving Doll, Causes Controversy

mattel releases waxing and shaving doll

Really, Mattel? You thought this was a good idea?

Mattel has released a new Monster High doll named Clawdeen Wolf, who is VERY focused on her looks, and spends the majority of her time “waxing, plucking and shaving.”

Here's how the "teen werewolf doll's" character description reads:

“My hair is worthy of a shampoo commercial, and that’s just what grows on my legs. Plucking and shaving is definitely a full-time job but that’s a small price to pay for being scarily fabulous."

Wow. Here's what human behavior and body image expert Patrick Wanis had to say about the doll:

“These dolls are training girls to feel ashamed of their bodies, to focus on being sexually appealing and sexually attractive from a pre-pubescent age. By sexualizing these young girls, corporations also create another avenue to market and sell more products to a younger demographic. These dolls also promote skimpiness of clothing, encouraging a young girl to dress like a stripper and believe that they must be sexually enticing to everyone around them.”

More from clinical psychologist Sari Shepphird:

“Young girls especially do not need a doll to point out physical flaws or encourage body image preoccupation in teens and young girls. Dolls are for play and escape and pleasure, and they should not be another source of criticism for young girls these days. It used to be that dolls were part of childhood and represented and offered an extension of innocence, but now some dolls are encouraging the opposite of innocence.”

And more from body image expert/Love Your Body, Love Your Life author Sarah Maria:

“Mattel is essentially promoting and encouraging the belief in young girls that they need to sculpt, tweeze, wax, and otherwise change their bodies in order to be considered attractive to men. Please, drop the hypocrisy. A Mattel spokesperson has the audacity to claim the Monster High dolls are celebrating imperfections and accepting imperfections in others. Excuse me? If these dolls are about self-acceptance and acceptance of others, how about leaving some hair on the body?”

Here's what a Mattel spokesperson had to say about the Monster High dolls:

“Monster High was the number one best selling new fashion doll of 2010 according to NPD and is resonating with teen and tween girls. Grounded in a clever and humorous storytelling, Monster High characters deliver a positive message of celebrating ones imperfections and embracing those of others.”

Sorry Mattel, but we're NOT gonna be able to side with you on this one. You've come up with a cute concept, but your approach to it is SERIOUSLY twisted and NOT child-appropriate.

Who do U side with? Team Mattel or Team Everyone Else?

Filed under: Silly!James Franco

There's nothing that can really be said about this that will do it justice, so we'll just reaffirm that we're completely obsessed with him.

Check out this video of James Franco sharing with the world the only true way to have a proper shave (above)!

We don't know which we prefer more: his vocal stylingz or his inspired, avant garde camera work!

Don't you ever stop being you, bb! LOLz!

Don't Drink Shave Your Vag And Drive!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

She's a charmer!

One day after being convicted of a DUI with a prior, Megan Barnes caused a car crash as she proceeded to shave her vagina behind the wheel on Tuesday.

LOLz!

Not only had her driver’s license been revoked for five years, but she is required to have a Breathalyzer ignition on any vehicle she drives as part of her nine months probation.

Despite the legal matters, she just wanted to “be ready” to meet her boyfriend on the way to Key West so she had a passenger hold the wheel while she went "downtown."

Barnes could face up to a year in prison and luckily, the people she struck were only treated for minor injuries.

We can't figure out which part is worse: the passenger who decided to hold the wheel or taking a razor to your genitals in a moving vehicle?!

Both are equally HIGHlarious!
