Before you say that Barbie is a horrible role model for young girls, and that those legs are no kind of real, know that Barbie doesn’t give a shit about your opinion of her.  Mattel says, “as a legend herself, and under criticism about her body and how she looks, posing in ‘Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’ gives Barbie and her fellow legends an opportunity to own who they are, celebrate what they have done, and be unapologetic.”   I think she doesn’t care about your opinion because she is a molded piece of plastic that has no brain or emotions.  The honey badger, on the other hand, doesn’t give a shit because he’s pretty bad-ass
