A full 92% of American girls own a Barbie doll. The originator copied Barbie off of a German prostitute doll used as a gag gift at stag parties. Now the feminists are upset that Barbie objectifies the female body and created the standard look for girls in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. Do Christians agree with feminists? Not exactly. On this edition of the program, we take a look at a biblical perspective of Barbie, body image, and objectification.
