Barbie Goes Transgender – Opinion


One Hollywood star now owns their Barbie.


On NBC’s TODAYOn Wednesday morning, LaverneCox, transgender superstar of, was welcomed to the show. Orange is the New Black

The Emmy-winning actor, LGBTQ+ activist and Emmy award winner is celebrating her 50th Birthday with Tribute Collection Barbie. She is wearing a red ball dress, a bodysuit in silver and accessories such as high-heeled boots or silver earrings.



TODAY: Parents joined the fun



“It’s been a dream for years to work with Barbie to create my own doll,” Cox said in a statement shared with TODAY Parents. “I can’t wait for fans to find my doll on shelves and have the opportunity to add a Barbie doll modeled after a transgender person to their collection.”



Laverne discussed politics on the live broadcast



[Mattel has]This incredible tribute to Barbie series features incredible people such as (filmmaker) Ava DuVernay and (singer] Brandy. And I’m the latest person to be so honored. … I love [the doll], and I had so much fun with everyone at Mattel designing her, but I think, this year particularly, when over 250 pieces of anti-transgender legislation have been introduced in state legislatures all over the country, targeting transgender children, LGBTQ youth, that I hope that all the kids who are feeling stigmatized when their healthcare’s being jeopardized, their ability to play in sports, I hope they can see this Barbie and have a sense of hope and possibility. … Because representation matters.”

It seems there’s plenty of representation goin’ ’round. Transgenderism appears present in every arena of life — for adults, on down.




As RedState Editor-at-Large Kira Davis so aptly put it Monday, individuals identifying as the opposite of their sex is a “new social reality.”


As for the toy world specifically, there’s certainly been a shift:

It’s stunning how quickly culture has changed. Just a few years ago, “transgender” occupied no space in the American lexicon. A mere decade back, surely the majority of Americans wouldn’t have dreamed our present cultural occurrences were in the cards. And if I had to guess, I’d say the transformation is nowhere near done.


The Babylon Bee, a satirical website published an article on the subject earlier in this month. This could be a prophetic article:
