Atheist Barbie

I’ve never been a fan of Barbie (shocker, I know). My family always tried to buy them for me, but I wanted nothing more than to play with Legoes all day. But it looks like Barbie has a interesting new profession:
She’s been a princess, a firefighter, a Marine and a ballerina. After years of soul-searching, Barbie has finally found her true vocation. Meet Rev. Barbie, a plastic Episcopal Priest.

Rev. Barbie, the creation of Rev. Julie Blake Fisher, an Episcopal priest in Kent, Ohio, has her own Facebook page and comes dressed in the latest trends in clergy-wear.

Fisher created Rev. Barbie for use in her own youth ministry: “I thought the children would like to practice playing with the vestments and learning what they are,” she told Religion News Service. Over the years, Barbie’s many vocations have served as inspiration for young girls. And although Mattel has not endorsed Fisher’s improvised Reverend Barbie, the plastic priestess has emerged at a critical moment in Christian history, especially for women.

Man, why should religious people get to have all the fun? I want an atheist Barbie! (click for slightly larger image)Finally, a Barbie doll that represents my every day life…

    Many of the Episcopalians I know (including myself) wear geeky science t-shirts, Flying Spaghetti Monster paraphernalia, and nerd glasses.

    I rather like Catholic Barbie. Very droll.

    Though of course it's likely just stupidity by the creator.

    Reminds me of very stupid scene in Seventh Heaven (shut up), where the mrs reverend substituted butter for schmaltz in a recipe when having Jews visiting. Just how stupid is it possible to be? And by supposedly religious person even.

    This is totally funny. Also, why not? Barbie's been basically every other career under the sun, hasn't she?I once wanted to make a mad-science barbie, which would come with a labcoat, a tiny plastic beaker, strange goggles, and gloves (probably painted on). They said she was mad, but she'll show them all!!!!

    Also realistic in that atheists are all well known for being statuesque and gorgeous (hence the regular orgies). As opposed to the dumpy sheep that make up the religious flock. I guess the only benefit to religious Barbie is she has morals so wouldn't randomly murder someone just for giggles.

    Typo – corrected.

    Having presented at an Atheist convention on research regarding the intersection of belief and skepticism – my first thought was that the implication that all atheists are 'pro-science' (the little shirt) is actually pretty misleading? I guess that's the same-old 'atheists are skeptics' assumption, which may be worthy of a discussion in itself? :)

    Of course, the likes of Leslie Cannold, Dr Rachael Dunlop, Jane Caro, Swoopy, myself and many, many other hard-working women in atheism are hardly attending orgies and my second response was to balk at the implication that atheist women cater to atheist men with exhibitionist behavior rather than make genuine contributions like men do – but clearly that's just your parody.

    I look forward to seeing Dora the Explorer as Skeptic investigator. :) Maybe Crispian Jago could do something about that one?

    Atheist Barbie? Try Skepchick Barbie.

    It is not exactly a typical atheist woman or even a typical female skeptic.

    Congratulations on what I am sure is a blazing success. You've been linked by several very high-traffic sites written by men who obviously thought this was cute.

    I think it's offensive.

    But my opinion doesn't really matter. I'm just a woman.

    @Not Laughing: It's not *supposed* to be a typical atheist or skeptic woman, but a mocking of the stereotypes about atheists. Atheists are often told, for example, that we eat babies for lunch, or people assume that we are all promiscuous. Which is not to say, "It's just a joke, get over it," because obviously that's a flippant answer that is often used to excuse offensive things. But I do think you're missing the point a bit. Jen is attempting to make ridiculous assumptions made about atheist women look silly, not canonize them.

    Humor is often used to marginalize people, so I can understand your concern, but it can also be a powerful tool to fight oppression, which was part of the intent (and I would say, fairly successful) here.

    You know, I was more irritated by "Computer Engineer Barbie" making a mockery of my field than I am by this religious one for some reason.

    That said, turning religious vestments into a goofy doll costume seems to me to make clearer that that's all they really are… something tells me that the priest Barbie says more sensible things than actual priests do, if for no other reason than the fact that she can't talk :)

    As for Jen's parody, I think it speaks for itself.

    As a female atheist skeptic, I have to disagree with Not Laughing here. Several people have already pointed out that this is ironic. Barbie has, historically, been all about the stereotypes, and this Barbie is both poking fun at Barbie and at the stereotypes we atheists encounter about ourselves (hint: the baby in the lunchbag gives it away).

    I think it's a brilliant commentary. And, apparently, it's not just men that think it's cute, since there seem to be an awful lot of women here cheering and asking for one. I have never liked Barbie, even as a kid, but I want one of these too!

    And, just for the record, women enjoying sex and being exhibitionist is not always because they're catering "to atheist men with exhibitionist behavior rather than make genuine contributions like men do".

    Women who are strong enough to stand up to an entire society that thinks women shouldn't worry their pretty little heads about science, math, and social issues, and that has a significantly high portion of women engaged in woo and religious beliefs, those women are also more likely to be women who are strong enough to embrace their own sexuality and be sex-positive or exhibitionist simply because they like doing so.

    Also, for the comment about overage fat guys crashing the orgy – we found that if you do a thorough job of planning the orgy the first time, taking care with the guest list and the safety requirements, it leads to more "surprise" orgies later since the groundwork has been taken care of … without the party crashers … even when that party is at Dragoncon.

    And totally unrelated, but pantless comes up as being misspelled but fantabulous is perfectly fine?

    As an atheist I have been sadly misinformed. I shouldn’t be a vegetarian I should be eating babies for lunch. Also, pants are apparently a hinderence to my many orgies throughout the day. I guess I better change my way of thinking. By the way sorta humorous making jokes out of common religious propaganda but putting extreme stereotypes with mild ones probably made people miss the humor.

    There’s really nothing that’s more self-important than to think that you and your subsect actually know exactly what the ineffable creator of the entire universe wants people to do. Atheists come a distant, distant second to theists there.

    Hugh

    You’re confusing me. Atheists believe that there is no creator of the universe, and therefore have not a single iota of interest in what this non-existent being might want us to do.Since theists seem to be in complete disagreement on this subject also, the atheist point of view makes considerably more sense.

    In all seriousness, folks, can we stop with the fat-hating here? Believe it or not, fat people have sex, people do find them attractive, and they can even participate in orgies. So quit it.

    Barbie doesn’t know everything, she just has a sense of whats probable and what is not. I suppose it would be much better for her to carry a leather bound Confusicon every where she goes. The baby would be real and there would be more than one and she would be busy either nursing or changing its diapers on a coffee house table.I think not.

    Barbie has always been sort of the mascot for a materialistic world view. If you get enough stuff you will be happy. She has her boy toy (literally), dream house, beach house, dream car, dream dog, etc. Everything in Barbie’s world is egocentric; claiming to be an atheist is a logical next step.

  133. 133
    Hugo Grinebiter

    Why? You’re conflating the two senses of “materialism” here; believing that only matter exists, and lusting after swag. There’s no reason why one cannot be both a philosophical materialist and an ascetic philanthropist.

    Also, if it were a “surprise” orgy as you yourself wrote it, Atheist Barbie would not be expecting it. To be ready for surprise orgies sells itself exquisitely, but it does stretch our credulity a tad bit.The humor does not work very well, you can feedback and please do so.

    I see you’ve got a Russian and a Swedish referral. Here’s what the Swede has to say, below the picture: (These days we may wonder what gear most leads the thoughts to sex, priestly vestments or going without pants? The difference is probably that in the vestments case it is about abuse, and in the pantsless case it is about free will. But of course the Church has always had problems with free will).

    I don’t see how one could consider it stupidity by the creator. The woman had very clear aims in designing the clothes for Barbie, to try and foster an interest in religion and the sacraments by kids in her parish. Pretty inventive thinking really. It’s not like she was trying to market the doll, or claim that Barbie is a fundamental Christian… Just a tool for Sunday school, it seems to me. And knowing kids, they probably went home after and dressed Barbie back in her ball gown…

    Go against Church is Going Against GOD.GOD does not like people speak against OUR HOME, THE CHURCH.At the end (after this life), GOD will show like JUDGE all the worlds to the atheist as always and in general, he/sheanswer I did not know. Later, GOD ask whether he/she repents or not. The devil answer “no” instead of the soul, since he/she is wrapped up by the evil…The soul must face the hell.Possible Questions:How is the hell? Does the hell exist? Does the purgatory exist? How’s it?From the vision of Hell Said by OUR MOTHER AND OUR LADY OF FATIMA:”She opened Her hands once more, as She had done the two previous months. The rays [of light] appeared to penetrate the earth, and we saw, as it were, a vast sea of fire. Plunged in this fire, we saw the demons and the souls [of the damned]. The latter were like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, having human forms. They were floating about in that conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames which issued from within themselves, together with great clouds of smoke. Now they fell back on every side like sparks in huge fires, without weight or equilibrium, amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fright (it must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me). The demons were distinguished [from the souls of the damned] by their terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black and transparent like burning coals. That vision only lasted for a moment, thanks to our good Heavenly Mother, Who at the first apparition had promised to take us to Heaven. Without that, I think that we would have died of terror and fear.” Source: http://bibleprobe.com/fatimavi…If you are interested to know about what GOD Is Saying Now,Read the Vassula’s Messages at:http://www.tlig.org/

    I’m all for Atheist Barbie! But for the sake of diversity, I’d also like to see more religiously inspired Barbies. Such as Catholic Bishop Barbie! Or perhaps female Pope Barbie… or would the correct title be Mome? Barbie as the holy mother of the Roman Catholic church anyway. I bet that would stir up some controvery too.

    Double kudos for Barbie and Boobquake. It’s always good to advance empirical science, but you really should point out that if the hypothesis were correct, the French Riviera would have experienced 9 on the Richter scale decades ago, as the mild and widely distributed display of cleavage in no significant way rivals the routine display of the entire female breast there and many other places throughout Europe. Also, the temple in Kajuraho, India that is covered from top to bottom not only in female lascivious nudity but in actual portrayals of humans in every conceivable combination of the sexual act would surely have been destroyed by earthquakes at some point during the 1000 years they have been standing.A more reasonable hypothesis is that wearing a burka causes earthquakes, as Tehran is for some completely inexplicable (in religious terms) reason the center of an inordinate amount of earthquake activity while the Playboy Mansion in Chicago is not. Perhaps God LIKES boobs and thinks that they should all be naked, all the time!Or maybe, just maybe, the earthquakes there are caused by the utterly impersonal mechanisms that drive the movement of tectonic plates:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…One million people could die? Not because of immodesty, but because the Iranian government is utterly corrupt and hasn’t enforced safe building standards? Tectonic plates?Naaaaahhh. God Loves Boobs, and the Irani women perversely cover theirs…rgb

    Wow! Can I have some? Y’know, it is really hard to find a reputable seller of LSD around here, and clearly you’re on some pure quill.I am SO interested in knowing what GOD is saying right now that I’ve just prayed that GOD will manifest directly in my den and share a couple of cold beers with me and let me know, in person. But alas, our good Heavenly Mother must have enforced a curfew or something, because GOD is once again a no-show.Y’know, you’d think an eternal omnipotent omniscient omnipresent transcendent being that created a trillion trillion stars on day four of creation (and that’s just the ones we can SEE) could spare the time to stop in and knock back a few, but I suspect that I need a hit or two of your clearly excellent drugs for that to happen…rgb

First, it’s hilarious; second I totally identify to the revendication of separation of religion and science (which is how it all began) and of the separation of church and state. Only thing missing is sex orgies. When it comes to sex, I find three to be a crowd.

    That is effin hilarious!! I wish I had pictures of my darling daughter’s Dismembered Barbie collection. At the ripe old age of 4 she was…. creative in a very off-beat way. At the age of 11 she was rearranging parts of dolls. Like my little pony had a barbie face…. and her unicorn had drips of red nail polish on the point of it’s horn. My creative little “Wednesday”. At 13 she was planning on participating in boobquake, but thought better of exposing that much of her overdeveloped self to horny teenage boys (thank goodness for her common sense!!!!)

    …yet if we bound her breasts and stuck a penis on her I’m guessing it’d piss you offI found it to be totally unrelated to gender so I’m guessing your issue is with Barbie herself. so can you not look at any woman without judging how she’s representing the entire female population, thus worsening the imbalance in equality between genders, or is it just the plastic ones?

    My eyes popped when I saw you had Atheist Barbie pegged as reading non godly material, wearing a science Tshirt, and nerdy glasses,carrying laptop to look up snopes, that far you had described me exactly ( not an atheist ) but then, you go and say an Atheist would  eat a baby, not wear pants, in case of instant sex opportunity and decorating herself with a gaudy  ‘flying spaghetti monster’ necklace– Well, i can’t quite understand where you get off characterizing an Atheist woman like this? Most Atheist women i met are kind, conservative, intelligent, deep, thoughtful and eat healthy foods, wear beautiful jewelry and aren’t trying to hump men at any opportunity. Tell me, how does the Atheist Ken look?
