The New Ken Doll: Out of the Closet?

If you want to know how Mattel is attempting to mold your daughter's prepubescent attitudes, check out the new effeminate Ken doll that's just out in time for Valentine's Day.

Here's CNN's report (don't miss the video story on that page). Over here is a more comic approach from author and one of David Letterman's key creative people, Merrill Markoe. And finally, the most telling perspective of all comes from conservative columnist/reporter, Debbie Schlussel.

I have a strong feeling that this glitzy "toy-boy" is not the one to win back Barbie's heart. So, G.I. Joe, please report for duty.
