Well, they're saving on retooling (so to speak) -- the dolls already didn't have any parts down below.

Remember years back when Mattel took major heat over beloved Barbie's "unnatural" curves and proportions? They were attacked over how dangerous it was to psychologically program girls to achieve that impossible level of body perfection. They should never have given in. Now, with this latest mutilation of Barbie and her body parts (or lack thereof), we should probably look for Morbidly Obese Barbie to be hitting store shelves to show our acceptance and love.

There really are things in the world that should not be included and accepted. This is one. I truly don’t understand why this perversion is being pushed so fast and hard upon us. Something is in the works. Groan.

If it is marked with the scars that such radical surgery inevitably leaves behind, showing the non glamorous side of transsexual reality, yes it's brave. But we know it doesn't, does it? It's just a regular Barbie doll with a head mold that somewhat resembles LaVerne Cox. So the usual Mattel fantasy with a name attached.

Mattel recently launched a new transgender Barbie doll to honor trans celebrity Laverne Cox on the occasion of Pride month. But reading the fine print on the box reveals the doll is manufactured in Indonesia, where gay and transgender people still experience widespread discrimination and same-sex marriage is illegal. The “Laverne Cox Barbie Tribute Collection” doll, which is intended for ages six and up, features a posable likeness of the Orange Is the New Black star wearing a red ball gown with a translucent skirt that reveals Cox’s legs. The collector’s item retails for $40.

It’s believed the strike targeted Iran’s drone research and development complex and not its missile or nuclear research facilities. No nation has claimed responsibility for the attack, but both Iran and the U.S. say that it fits the pattern of past attacks by Israel. The attack follows an assassination of a colonel in the Revolutionary Guards last week. Analysts believe the Israelis intended it as a warning to Iran to stop targeting Israeli citizens abroad.

Nancy Pelosi is in serious trouble. And not the kind of trouble associated with such petty, earthly concerns like her party losing its majority in a humiliating and historic fashion this coming November. And with that loss, her loss of the speakership for the second time in a dozen years. No, Nancy Pelosi has some serious trouble with the disposition of her soul. And she needs our prayers, even if she doesn't believe it herself. Last week, her Archbishop, the aptly named Salvatore Cordileone, notified Pelosi that she should no longer present herself for the Holy Eucharist when attending Mass.

Another blonde woman wearing a beige pencil skirt and an off-the-shoulder top gave a mischievous grin as she lifted up her shirt to reveal a black gun tucked tightly into a white lacey undergarment. Other women wore their concealed weapons in less provocative places, such as under their armpits and stashed in fashionable purses.

Back in 1988, scientists in London almost seem to have had a crystal ball. Writing in the International Journal of Epidemiology, they made a bold – and surprisingly prescient – prediction about monkeypox: Over time, "the average magnitude and duration of monkeypox epidemics will increase," they wrote. At the time, monkeypox was an extremely rare disease. Health-care workers detected only a few cases a year in West and Central Africa. People caught the disease almost exclusively from rodents or primates and then spread the virus to only a few people. Transmission between people was limited. But the foresighted scientists warned that, over
