Look out, FemiNazis are getting moodier.  They’ve found a new way to take out their aggression over the fact they were born without penises—murder Barbie!  Those radical male-bashers who try to convince young girls that pretty dolls psychologically damage them into believing it’s okay to be pretty have been unsuccessful in aborting Barbie off the planet. So now, they have taken to dismembering her body, chopping off her long hair, and in the latest attempt to kill Barbie, holding art exhibits displaying paintings of Barbie drowning.

Fear not Sarah Palin and Sharron Angle, your crosshairs and metaphors are less threatening to humanity than Barbie’s looks.

Ms. Magazine is part of the entourage that considers Barbie threatening to girls. Ms. believes it’s liberating for women to take out their aggression on Barbie by giving her the Jeffrey Dahmer and Susan Smith treatment.  Pretending to commit murder will help young girls develop psychologically healthy minds.

The latest attempt to murder Barbie is by artist Daena Title, who paints Barbie drowning. Title is praised by Ms. Magazine’s Stephanie Hallett, who says of the exhibition:

Whatever your relationship to the 52-year-old doll, ‘Drown the Dolls’ will hold some meaning…seeing the show up close (in the flesh, so to speak) gave the work real power.  Title’s skill alone bears admiration, as her renditions of Barbie’s distorted face reflected on the pool’s surface are familiar and eerily accurate…It is truly Barbie’s contorted reflection on the watery surface of the backyard pool that drives home…the grotesque abnormality of Barbie’s body. In her wobbling reflection, the suffocating ideals of feminine beauty that Barbie represents are revealed for what they truly are–silly, unimportant, impeachable. The subversive power inherent in that act of purposeful distortion resonated in the real-life presence of the work.

Pretending to murder Barbie is admirable?  That makes psychologically sound sense.
