Barbie Does It Again

Have you heard of Abby Wambach? Well if you haven’t, maybe you will recognize her from some of her awesome work on the soccer field.

Here she is scoring a goal for the Team USA-

Abby Wambach is the number one goal scorer for the U.S. Women’s Soccer team. In fact she isn’t just the number one scorer overall for women, she is the number one scorer for women AND men. She recently retired, but not after helping lead Team USA to win the World Cup.

Basically, she rocks. And did I mention she is openly gay? Because she is. While this shouldn’t really matter in 2016, it does when I tell you this: Abby Wambach is now a Barbie.

Just weeks after the announcement that Mattel would be offering Barbie in a variety of shapes, sizes, and skin tones, they announced the release of an Abby Wambach doll.

Who would have thought that after years of being chastised for promoting unrealistic body image and ideals to children, that Barbie would now be the company to lead the way in embracing diversity in females.

Good Job Mattel. But now I think it’s time to move on to Ken.
