Hasbro Sluts-for-Tots Means Full Employment For Christian Mullahs

pussycat_dolls_dolls.jpgI expect the Christian lobbyist/talking headed wingnuts of Concerned Women of America will find little comfort in the fact that, when it comes to decrying the decadence of the West, they're reading off the same script as the Taliban.

Because if there's anything to learn from Hasbro's introduction of these Pussycat Doll dolls, it's that what the fundamentalist Islamo-fascists hate us for is our freedom. Our freedom to buy our preschool-age daughters trampy little sexpot showgirl dolls. And the freedom to face the wrath of an angry God at the Last Judgment for doing so.

[update: I've gotten several emails from people who took offense at my portrayal of Christians generally and people with religious/moral objections to these kinds of toys in particular. As someone whose own Christian sensibilities are offended by these pieces of crap, I should apologize for not being clearer.

I think that NOW and feminists and atheists and all kinds of people can be--and should be--deeply annoyed at oversexualized, age-inappropriate toys like this being targeted at 6-year-olds--which means being played with by 3- and 4-year-olds. But TMZ made a lazy-ass journalistic decision to get an off-the-shelf condemnation from a politically loaded Christian punditry/lobbying group that claims to speak for my--and millions of other peoples'--faiths.

Ultimately, the only thing I find more annoying and objectionable and depressing than these trampy dolls is being told what to do by a self-appointed morality police. I don't need a Biblical literalism-based government to tell me that these toys aren't right for my kid; I can figure that out for myself.]

[update2: looks like Charlie Sheen is doing an accompanying clothing line for kids. Classy.]

Ugh. Groovy Girls keep looking better and better.

They're positively Puritanical compared to the Crack-Ho Bratz girls.

Finally we have something that the mullahs and the Xian fundamentalists and I can agree on.

I told my in-laws I didn't want them to give my 3 year old a Barbie for her birthday. So instead she got a Bratz doll with interchangeable heads. I guess I got my wish.

I imagine this whore of a doll will end up at my house around Christmas time.

Its so strange how some toys in our house just up and dissapear.
