Fans Think This Photo Of Barbie Is Proof She’s An Out And Proud Lesbian
The fact that the early days of Barbie were not quite so inclusive to all of us comes as no surprise. The blonde, impossibly figured doll with a penchant for similar-looking friends is a far cry away from the Barbie of today who has friends of all shapes, races, sizes, sexual identities, and abilities. Even better, today’s Barbie crew includes dolls who give queer children a broader playgound for their imagination.
Recently, Barbie has added a new addition to her friend group whose bringing more power to her LGTBQ fans.
Social media has dubbed the LGBTQ positive Aimee Song doll Barbie‘s girlfriend.
Twitter’s latest excitement is about a theory that Barbie and Aimee Song are dating. Photos of Mattel’s doll Aimee Song doll show her wearing a “Love Wins” T-shirt that supports LGBTQ+ rights. The Mattel doll was inspired by fashion blogger Aimee Song and recently caught renewed attention in a viral post shared to Twitter.
The “Love Wins” photos are only now going viral but were actually released in November 2017.
The photos of Barbie and the Aimee doll were shared to Twitter last Monday by user @kissevermore and now has Twitter debating whether the two are dating.
The pictures of Barbie and Aimee show the two dolls eating avocado toast. petting a dog, and smiling at each other. The images have fans questioning when Barbie came out and how she managed to nail a hot girlfriend before they did.
Even REAL Aimee Song weighed in on the images to confirm the relationship.
“I am the girlfriend,” she tweeted with a photo of herself and the Aimee Song doll.
While Mattel has yet to officially identify Barbie as a lesbian, the original Instagram posts related to the Love Wins Barbies are proof that she is at least an ally.
Confirmed or not, true or not, one of the best parts of Barbie is that she is meant to be whoever her fans want her to be.
