Have you heard?
There’s an Ashley Graham Barbie doll!
I just wanted to find some proof that it’s okay to have hips. And a rounded tummy. And thick thighs. And four chins.
I only have one and a half chins!
Seeing as how the average size of an American woman is 16, it seems only logical to make products designed to glorify shapes and sizes other than size 0-8.
As a child, I would have LOVED to have an Ashley Graham Barbie doll.
Validation that I’m not a freak.
But, you know, as nice as it is to find external validation, real acceptance comes from within.
Marketing will only get you so far.
