    The Truth

    It's trendy to have cancer: Barbie to roll out 'cancer doll'

    It's trendy to have cancer: Barbie to roll out 'cancer doll' with bald head, chemo side effects


    Wednesday, April 11, 2012 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer(NaturalNews) A Facebook petition signed by more than 157,000 people has prompted the Mattel company to create a new Barbie doll in the likeness of a cancer victim. According to News.com.au, the bald-headed doll, which will be dubbed "a friend of Barbie," is set to be released in 2013, and will come with an assortment of head dressings and clothing commonly worn by real-life female cancer victims.

    Cancer rates are apparently skyrocketing so much in the U.S. today -- even among children -- that certain individuals feel Mattel should release a cancer-stricken Barbie doll for children in order to keep up with this disastrous trend. These individuals, in other words, appear to fully endorse the bizarre materialization of one of America's most deadly conditions into a children's toy.

    "We would like to see a Beautiful and Bald Barbie made to help young girls who suffer from hair loss due to cancer treatments, alopecia or trichotillomania," says a petition written to Mattel by Beautiful and Bald Barbie, the Facebook group that first promoted the idea. "Also, for young girls who are having trouble coping with their mother's hair loss from chemo. Many children have some difficulty accepting their mother, sister, aunt, grandparent or friend going from long-haired to bald."

    Mattel says it will not actually sell the "Beautiful and Bald Barbie" in retail stores, but rather it will distribute it to children with cancer in hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. Some of the cancer dolls will also reportedly be offered to charity partners on other continents as well, as an act of goodwill towards those suffering from cancer globally.

    You can see a rendering of cancer Barbie at:

    As generous and well-meaning as this initiative is, one cannot help but notice the disturbing symbolic implications of a Barbie doll with cancer. Since Barbies were originally created as a fashion doll for young girls to relate to, the concept of a Barbie doll with cancer not only shows just how prevalent this horrible disease has become, but also how cancer is becoming typecasted as commonplace and fashionable.

    In the same way that creating an obese Barbie or a Barbie with leprosy, for instance, would be a morbid venture, creating a Barbie with cancer only helps to normalize a devastating condition that is largely avoidable and treatable outside the conventional medical paradigm. Rather than attempt to turn cancer into a type of cultural paragon, perhaps the "Beautiful and Bald Barbie" group, as well as Mattel, could funnel their well-intentioned efforts into promoting cancer prevention and alternative cancer treatments.

    This article is disturbing because it is basically turning something charitable into some sort of conspiracy...

    The title of the article is extremely misleading. The author of this article is saying "it is trendy to have cancer". but that statement has literally nothing to do with the facts of the story itself. It also says "Barbie to roll out 'cancer doll'" which is also misleading as the article goes on to state that the dolls will not be sold "in retail stores, but rather it will distribute it to children with cancer in hospitals". So this is not a retail venture, but a continuation of an existing charitable endeavor.

    Im not even going to comment on the last 2 paragraphs of this article as it basically says that cancer is a big conspiracy. I dont subscribe to junk science or conspiracy theories.

    Pretty horrible hey JB? How monstrous of the Mattel Corporation.

    Nothing nice about cancer, but apparently something ugly is being made about giving a little comfort.

    The Truth
    There is nothing wrong with Mattel trying to give kids some self esteem.

    No but theres something wrong with giving a kid a toy that constantly reminds them of their own condition,isnt that nice for their self esteem.

    I think, I have a pretty good sense of humor & I do believe most odd barbies would be bought by men.
    & Not for children.

    I have never heard of any child objecting to the dolls on top of which they never forget their condition.

    This post is actually nothing new, IMO it's just to stir the pot- we are all being baited for some personal entertainment.

    This is actually OLD news.
