Did you grow up with Barbie? Did you ever want to look like Barbie?
There’s always been controversy surrounding the doll. Little girls love her, but critics feel Barbie creates unrealistic standards for the female body. Her eyes are unnaturally big and her feet and waist are way too small to physically support the rest of her body, they said. No one could ever look like Barbie. It’s impossible, right? But is it?
Take a look at the following clip of Valeria Lukyanova, the real life human Barbie doll.
So does this prove that looking like Barbie is not an unrealistic standard? That women can look like the doll if they really want it?
Well, let’s put it this way. In order to look like Barbie, Lukyanova wears a ton of makeup, had surgery on her chest and has to pretty much starve herself to maintain such a small waist. In fact, she had to redesign the body that God created. So, I guess it’s still impossible to look like Barbie naturally.
Hollywood has proven that even the most beautiful women have to be Photoshopped to meet unrealistic standards of perfection. And Lukyanova has proven that she needs makeup, surgery and an extreme diet to look like Barbie. She also has to risk her health.
No woman should go to extreme levels to maintain an unnatural level of perfection. God has already designed each and every one of us, and He makes no mistakes. If you want to improve yourself, work on your heart, beautiful girls. God’s already taken care of the body.
Ladies, do you feel it’s okay to adopt extreme measures to attain the perfect body, or is it just messing with God’s creation? Share your thoughts, we love hearing from you!
