A Typical Barbie Body vs. A Typical Real Woman Body [Infographic]

A Typical Barbie Body vs. A Typical Real Woman Body [Infographic] | Brainfriendly, motivating stuff for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it

This infographic does a comparison between a typical Barbie body and a typical real woman body. As it turns out, the Barbie body is impossible to attain.

 

.....On Barbie’s body, the neck is twice as long and six inches thinner. If you had this, you wouldn’t be able to lift your own head.

 

Barbie has a sixteen-inch waist. If your waist was only sixteen inches, you would only be able to fit half a liver and a few inches of intestines in there

Women in Refrigerators is a trope identified by comic book fan (and now comic book writer) Gail Simone because she was sick of seeing "superheroines who have been either depowered, raped, or cut up and stuck in the refrigerator." This is the second of a six part series created for Bitch Magazine - http://bitchmagazine.org

"A trope is a common pattern in a story or a recognizable attribute in a character that conveys information to the audience. A trope becomes a cliche when it's overused. Sadly, some of these tropes often perpetuate offensive stereotypes"
