    Gotta love how closely the WT and Iran feel about things!

    Kind of ironic, isn't it?

    Barbie is sold wearing swimsuits and miniskirts in a society where women must wear head scarves in public and men and women are not allowed to swim together.
    In 1996, the head of a government-backed children's agency called Barbie a "Trojan horse" sneaking in Western influences such as makeup and revealing clothes.

    This from a socieity & govt. that allows men to beat the shite out of their wives and children. They hang any gay people they find, that way their President can 'truthfully' declare, "We have no homosexuals in Iran."

    They don't sweat that 'small' stuff. But, kids dolls...? Just like the GB, they fear that 'worldly' influence.

    Also in 2002, Iran introduced its own competing dolls -- the twins Dara and Sara -- who were designed to promote traditional values with their modest clothing and pro-family stories. But the dolls proved unable to stem the Barbie tide

    Yeah...I'll bet those were big sellers ! $$$$

    Hmm. Seems the witlesses have much in common with totalitarian Islamic countries. So much for Christian freedom.

    Fundies are fundies--and frightening--whatever their ideology...
