I’ve seen people giving critique to the Barbie Quick Look for there being eating disorder jokes. That’s fair but I feel like the duders were making those jokes less to make fun of eating disorders and more to make fun of the unhealthy standards Barbie sets. Jeff ends the QL by saying that if he had a daughter he’d never let her play that game. They may have been crass in their wording but I’m sure the guys didn’t mean anything by what they said.
BUT AT THE SAME TIME everyone makes mistakes sometimes. The jokes were in poor taste and structured poorly at times. I hope the duders are a bit better in their wording from then on. Barbie is something to make fun of, but real mental disorders are not.
All I’m sayin is that I think the guys meant well but kinda flubbed. And as long as they’re aware, it’s all good.
Okay, I finally saw the Quick Look and, yeah, they were not Eating Disorder Jokes; they were Barbie’s Unhealthy Standards for Womanhood Jokes. No question about it. Totally fine.
Because it’s the triumph of science over nature, of course.
