Barbie And Ken 101


Sometimes I feel like I’m sittin’ in the back row of Barbie and Ken 101. A class we are all in, but never seem to learn from. Some general ed requirement for students of American culture. A genral eduacation that convinces even the brightest of young women that sex is survival of the thinnest. And I’m sick of this education that doesn’t serve our best interests. M y teacher has no face. She is every Revelon model women have ever chased. Her lectures come through magazines in beauty shops & add campaigns. Sh** just turn on your tv this just in, a skewed perspective for todays youth. Y’al ladies aint thin enough, fellas aint trim enough, wanna be sexy? Y’al don’t go to the gym enough, cut to commercial. Common just come tune into our maintenance team, convince you’re ugly then tell you how to fix it with Maybeline. Perpetually started by these dolls marketed in the late 50’s named Barbie and Ken. Hence the class I’m in. Are you following? This sh** doesnt end. They keep moldin’ Barbie to fit new trends. Next maybe they’ll have club hoppin’ Barbie with thongs as accessories. Video hoe Barbie abusive boyfriend sold separately. Underaged Barbie, R.Kellys included. Or 9/11 victim Barbie and Ken is proud to get recruited. Problem is all these teachings are womans decay. And I’m startin’ to worry cuz my girl is up front and she’s getting an A. This is where I start getting pissed off ok. When the f**k did it become all about tuckin’ in the gutt I gotta get the bigger breast shit I wanna fit a little better in a dress, so let me get a little skinny gotta fit into an itty bitty size slimmer so I livin up the chest. Please teacher teacher I wanna give my oral presentation cuz I have a problem with the class, and matter of fact, I have, a fat a** grudge with the whole sadministration. You’re the reason my girl won’t eat in front of me in restaurants. The reason that she thinks she’s overweight in over ten spots. Less gut, less pudge, less lunch, less real, more looks more love more Barbieappeal. F**k Barbie and Ken my future daughter will never play with them. You’re the reason bleedin’ 15 year old girls arms are slit. You made 12 year olds think skinny was a compliment. And now it’s too late. I can’t write my way through this bathroom door. So I raise my hand in class cuz I can’t stand it any more. Teacher teacher your lectures all backwards. You got mothers and daughters forgetting what matters. Cuz above t*ts, a**, lips, legs, and ugs. The most attractive women are the ones who don’t give a f**k. So screw all your teachings, your lessons and plans. You skewed sick distant relative of the man.Your plan for brainwashin’ my baby I reject I’m walkin’ out of this class, and I will proudly take, my F.
