Diversity and Inclusivity are two words that are starting to piss me off.
As an aside, I see my smell chucker doesn’t even recognise the word “inclusivity” which shows it’s just a woke makey uppy word.
I’m not even sure what “inclusivity” is supposed to mean. Does it mean we all gather in a big huddle and whisper phrases like “we love you” and “you are one of us” in each other’s ears?
I notice that Mattel have produced a Down’s Syndrome Barbie. [*sigh*]. Fair enough but how for are they going to run with this “inclusiveness”? Are they going to produce a transsexual Barbie with tits and willies that can be added or removed at will? How about a Barbie with multiple personalities so you never know what’s going to come out of the box? let’s include an alcoholic Barbies that chucks up diced carrots everywhere? I’d like to see a Protest Barbie that glues itself to the table every time you put it down. You can imagine for yourselves what happens with the ISIS suicide Barbie. What about a mass-shooting Barbie laced with automatic weapons the goes off and slaughters all the other dolls in the cupboard? They really need to think this through.
As another side, they are producing Barbies in a range of colours. That brings up another hatred of mine – “people of colour”. It’s a horrible awkward phrase that is grammatically meaningless. Why can’t they just say “coloured”? What the fuck is wrong with black or brown?
They haven’t produced a Barbie yet with a beard.
I feel excluded.
