oh my god
when someone calls a white person “cracker”
In July, a photo of a 3-D print by artist Nickolay Lamm of a Barbie doll designed with the proportions of the average 19-year-old American woman went viral, with several people calling for the doll to actually be made. Now, it looks like millions of little girls might finally be able to get their hands on this “Lammily” doll, thanks to crowdsourcing efforts by the artist. Lamm has started a campaign with the help of CrowdItOpen, which he hopes will raise enough money to make Lammily a reality.
“Currently, there is no doll like this on the market,” he told the Huffington Post, divulging a few details on what he’s got planned for the new doll, including her wardrobe: ”Most fashion dolls on the market are dressed like princesses or wear funky outfits,” he said. “I wanted Lammily to wear clothes that Gap or J. Crew might design. There’s no reason why simple everyday clothes design can’t be transferred to doll clothes.”
While I think a doll with realistic body proportions is a great idea, I’m not too keen on the notion of dressing her in “normal” clothes. Part of what was fun for me as a little girl was dressing and undressing my dolls in fantasy, fashionable outfits. It’s a doll, after all, a play thing–not real life.
I think dolls are dolls I don’t think they should look like average people because they’re just dolls not a model of what people should look like.

You are such a wonderful muse. I love m.i.a. And I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t.
"I have often have wondered what kind of a person I would be today if I did not have these enormous guilts — if everything had gone easily and I had not made such horrific mistakes. I think I would have been the most awful, pontifical goody two shoes. I was really so smug, so sweet, so good, so spoiled — so intolerant of anybody else’s downfall. But tragedy, mistakes, and shame for your mistakes cannot leave you untouched. All the superficial things that one gave so much value to before — money, luxury, indulging in whims — calamity makes them seem so incidental. I swear to God I’d be just as happy living with Richard and the kids in a shack. And I treat the happiness I have now with great respect, great appreciation, because I know how fragile and precarious it is — how easily it can go."
