A judge in a California federal court recently ruled that Bratz doll maker MGA cease producing the dolls after the holiday shopping season and pull all dolls off the shelves. This ruling didn't come about because the dolls were too damn slutty; rather, this is a result of a lawsuit that Barbie maker Mattel brought against Bratz designer Carter Bryant because he had developed the doll's concept while working for Mattel. The jury awarded Mattel $10 million for copyright infringement and up to $90 million for breach of contract.
Well, it looks like mothers will have one less option for giving their preteen daughters a doll that can serve as a model for how to dress like a total slut whorebag hooker. Yeah, somehow fishnet stockings, halfshirts, miniskirts and bright red lipstick just don't seem like the kinds of things that prepubescent girls should be donning---that is unless they're in a "beauty pageant"...um...but that's a whole other ridiculous story.
Now that Barbie has won the catfight, mothers can rest assured that young girls everywhere will now have a much more positive role model. That is, if the image of an impossibly-thin, totally superficial and materialistic queen-bee type is what you want your daughter to aspire to.
