Is The ‘Human Barbie’ Majorly Creepy? [Candy Dish]
I don’t like judging people on their appearance or how they choose to look, though there is something a bit off about this human barbie doll Valeria Lukyanova. Dolls have a lot of symbolism in modern society especially for women, as they often represent “human perfection” and are notably sexless. Moreover, they are intended to be toys and therefore lack autonomy unlike, you know, real, imperfect human women. V Magazine interviewed Lukyanova who said, “Many people say bad things about people who want to perfect themselves. It’s hard work, but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computer artists. Some people even spread rumors about me and retouch my pictures to hurt me. But I don’t take them seriously. I’m even flattered! It’s what success is like. I’m happy I seem unreal to them, it means I’m doing a good job.”
I’m not going to poo on this girl for doing what she wants. Nevertheless I would be weary of anyone who sees perfecting themselves as a solely physical pursuit or who thinks perfection is at all possible. Although if she is happy, fulfilled, satisfied, guess I cannot be one to judge. What do you think?
