Barbie, ¿Que?

The Mattel Corporation, makers of Barbie, have produced an online poll asking people to vote on the next occupation of "teenage-fashion model doll" Barbie. Choices are "Environmentalist," (although a doll made entirely out of plastic might be a poor spokesperson for this career), Surgeon, Architect, News Anchor, or, drumroll please: "Computer Engineer."

Seriously. Go vote for "Computer Engineer." Whether you believe Barbie’s influence on young girls to be positive or negative, you cannot deny that there is an influence. And Computer Engineer will go a long way towards correcting the "Math class is tough" version of Barbie.
