If the morbidly obese are harassed and stared at, what would people do to a living Barbie

It wasn’t normal and it wasn’t something that should be happening. If it wasn’t for the pictures and the baby boom of mass media, we wouldn’t even know who Valeria Lukyanova is. By pushing the boundaries of what is normal, she has attained immense popularity. Barbie is a doll not a multidimensional human woman. When you imagine Valeria you see a single image.

She's got the 'the look'

Social groups criticize Lukyanova’s homage. Privately she is deeply hurt.
