Decathlon, 10k and wet knickers

I’m one of those people who seem to get into trouble without trying. This tends to happen because I don’t think things through.

Barbie is my Role Model

If there is one thing that is certain is this world, it is the fact that myself and Rayn will argue about anything. So when he starting bad-mouthing Barbie during a meeting as promotional tool for encouraging women to be dumb and pretty, I nearly reached through my laptop to punch him. He must have sensed it so he set me a challenge. I had to find five reasons why Barbie is awesome and “pink” wasn’t to be one of them. Prepare to have your mind blown as I delve into the reasons why I think Barbie is a positive role model for young girls.
