Fantastic creation/comparison, showing what we've known for decades (especially in the Society of Women Engineers, though this comment is my own) but hadn't been able to see so clearly. Bring it on.

cool use of 3d printing, however barbie as the "standard of beauty" is about as ridiculous as young boys thinking they should model their looks after Gi-Joe or heaven forbid He-Man action figures with the extra ripply side muscles. I think the media is at fault for pushing this "concept" that barbie is the "standard of beauty" and not barbie or barbies owners.

I mean if I modeled myself after Gi-Joe I'm pretty pissed since I don't have that classic "kung-fu grip"!

I’m impressed, I must say. Really almost never do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have reach the claw on the mind. Your notion is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. We are very happy that I stumbled across this particular in my look for something concerning this.
