Every once in a while, I see an article on Facebook titled something like "If Barbie Was Real."

The article gives a very detailed description of what Barbie would look like if she was a real girl with the same proportions as the doll. Reading through it, you are given the image of a very disfigured woman: a waist so thin you could fit your hand around it and breasts so large that her tiny frame could not support them. She would have to walk on all fours, like an animal.
