The next movement in the skankification of the American girl-child is Barbie-administered temporary tattoos, which will prepare our girls for the body modification they will need to attract those big Hooters tips. I was expecting the tattoos. I wasn’t expecting the gun:

“Be who you wanna be: a miniature skank!” But really, this is sad. (Via Fey Friends.)

    So girls with tattoos=skanks now? It would have been one thing if it was tribal tats and tramp stamps but, eh, you just kind of come off as an out-of-touch suburban mom in this post, Lindsay.

      Not all girls with tattoos — seven-year-old girls with tattoos. Come on.

        “which will prepare our girls for the body modification they will need to attract those big Hooters tips.” That doesn’t sound like “girls with temporary tattoos=sluts” that sounds like “women with tattoos/body modifications=sluts.” Even funnier because Hooters doesn’t employ women with visable tattoos. But who cares right? Slut shame!

        And seriously, you are getting mad about CHILDREN USING TEMPORARY TATTOOS? Did you sleep through your childhood or were your raised Amish? A lot of kids use temporary tattoos. They even give them away in Cracker Jacks for eff’s sake.

      Do you know anyone that has a tattoo who ISN’T a skank?

    • I’m going to have to agree. Kids love temporary tattoos for the same reason they love stickers. You can put em on, take em off, it’s fun. It’s not the skanking of America’s children for goodness sake.

    What age do girls play with Barbies?? I think I put mine away when I turned 7.

  3. Jeez, I hope these girls don’t grow up thinking regular guns shoot tattoos too, that will be one messy situation…

    wow, Barbie has facial tattoos, that’s pretty hardcore

  5. This means tattoos are over, right? Once seven-year-olds have to be convinced something is “totally stylin’”, it’s no longer cool.

    • I think tattoos have been over for a long, long time. Tattoos and meth are the two most defining aspects of white trash.
