Valeria Lukyanova, ‘the Human Barbie,’ doesn’t believe in ‘race-mixing’ of course

0414-GQ-MOBB01.01
Back in November 2012, CB covered “the Human Barbie,” this Ukrainian girl named Valeria Lukyanova who has had so much plastic surgery she looks like a blow up doll. Well, I thought it sounded familiar when GQ sent us this story. GQ basically sent a reporter to the Ukraine to meet and interview Valeria because… I guess there wasn’t anything else going on in Ukraine, amirite? Anyway, I couldn’t even get through the entire story because this whole thing is so… what’s the word? The whole thing makes me feel queasy and gross, like by giving this poor crazy woman attention, we’re feeding her need to exploit her own bad decisions. Here are some excerpts from the article:

The writer’s take on Valeria Lukyanova, the human Barbie: “I realize that just like everyone reading about Human Barbie, I had had a simple narrative prepared in my head: A small-town girl grows up obsessed with dolls, etc. Instead, I get a racist space alien….Her brand-new hair extensions, the color of Chardonnay, hang straight down, reaching her nonexistent hips. Her mouth is frozen in a vacant half-smile; the teeth are small and almost translucent…It could be that the world and I have misjudged the Human Barbie in a fundamental way. Her steady drift from reality and into the twenty-first dimension is not about submissiveness, fame, or snagging a husband. It could be about finding a way out, however random, bizarre, and costly the route appears from the outside. It could be about gaining some measure of freedom.”

Lukyanova on beauty: “Everyone wants a slim figure. Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it’s not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean. It’s global now.”

Lukyanova on why ‘race-mixing’ is responsible for the increase in plastic surgery: “For example, a Russian marries an Armenian, they have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad’s nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it’s all good. Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration, and it didn’t used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this. I love the Nordic image myself. I have white skin; I am a Nordic type—perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic.”

Lukyanova on having a family: “It’s unacceptable to me. The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me… I’d rather die from torture because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle.”

On feminism: “I’m against feminism. But what would you keep the children for? So they can get you a glass of water when you’re on your deathbed?”

[From GQ]

Wow, who would have thought that The Human Barbie would be racist? Good lord. I have to say this – I’m mixed race, so her comments hit me below the belt. But my dad always claimed (seriously) that mixed race children were the prettiest, so is that racism too? Eh, what does it even matter? Why even try to apply logic in this situation? This woman has issues.

      I nearly screamed, that was so funny

      • kri says:

        I want to scream, because she is so very terrifying. My god, I don’t think I will sleep tonight. I don’t know what is worse about this creature-her outside or her inside? I guess it’s a draw. So much hatred-for herself and others. Sad.

    • Colu says:

      I also think that ”mixed race” children (and women) are the prettiest. Is that racist? I’ve never considered that before.

      ETA: I’m Caucasian. I’m not sure if that matters.

      • FingerBinger says:

        @Colu You’re entitled to your opinion,but I’ve seen beautiful children of all races. I suppose a mixed/biracial person would find your comment delightful and a compliment,but I don’t.

      • V4Real says:

        @Colu I also think that most mixed race people are beautiful and I’m Black. It’s not to say that people who are not obviously mixed are not just as beautiful. ( I say obviously mixed because hardly anyone can say they are 100% any race anymore; I know I’m not. ) But I don’t think it’s racist or offensive to say that two different races can make beautiful children. Just like I don’t believe it’s offensive to say that overall Brazil have the most beautiful women. I’m not saying that all the other countries don’t have good looking people but I have heard a lot of people say that the country with the largest population of gorgeous women is Brazil, I agree, it’s just an opinion.

        Not that long ago some Lupita fans on C/B were saying how beautiful her children would be if she was with Fassy or Cumberbatch. Indirectly they were saying because of the mixed race their children together would be beautiful. There’s no harm in that.

      • Omega says:

        Please, beauty has nothing to do with race or mixing thereof. Maybe what people mean is that since mixed race kids arent super common they are now the definition of exotic.

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        Of course, a parent of a mixed race child would tell him or her that bi-racial children are the prettiest. Sometimes they are and sometimes they aren’t. Just like other kids. I am half Mexican with the other half German with a touch of Cherokee & Scot. I didn’t know I was Hispanic until a couple years ago. Now the fact that I look nothing like my sister makes sense. She was the pretty one my whole life according to the outside world. At my dad’s funeral (the wonderful hero who raised me as his own), someone came up to my mom – while I stood there – and said, “Oh, you have such a beautiful daughter with Pat!” My mom’s eyes narrowed, she hugged me close and hissed, “I will have you know that I have TWO beautiful daughters!” and she turned away from that person. She’s been gone a long time but I’ll never forget how she protected me from ugly comments about her darker skinned & more ethnic looking child. I wish she had trusted my love enough to tell me that I was the product of an affair. My dad forgave her. I certainly would have. To her, mixed race children were gorgeous and I love for it! And anybody who has hatred for bi-racial ANYTHING can kiss my olive skinned butt!!!

      • V4Real says:

        “Maybe what people mean is that since mixed race kids arent super common they are now the definition of exotic. ”

        Aren’t super common, yet it dates back to slavery and beyond. Why do you think Black people come in various skin tones.

      • FLORC says:

        You can be mixed race and not look it. That argument is terrible on all sides.
        Mixed race children are not all prettier or generally prettier than non-mixed and vice versa.

        Mixed race might be healthier with greater immunities overall, but from a physical appearance, that argument falls on personal preferences and a bit of racism.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        @V4Real I don’t think you intended to say something bone-headed, but you kinda did.

        Black people come in a variety of skin tones naturally, and it has nothing to do with slavery or racial mixing. You can travel around Africa and see that. How dark your skin is has to do with how sunny an environment your ancestors lived in, and Africa is a massive continent — there’s plenty of variety.

      • V4Real says:

        @Bread and Circuses. It amazes me how people can accuse someone of saying something boneheaded and then turn around and do the exact same thing. Read your History and you will know that a lot of Black skin tones came from the mixing of the races, not just White that’s why I said and beyond. It was a general statement.

        Listen, please don’t go twisting my words because that is exactly what you are doing. I didn’t say that there were not any Black People with natural skin tones. I made a general statement about Blacks having various skin tones due to race mixing. Did I say all Blacks, no I didn’t, you just assumed I did to start a debate. I know that it is enviromental and it depends on where you live. I know that The Greeks believed that Ethiopians were darker becasue they lived closer to the sun. I know that some biologists believes that the difference in pigmentation are due to natural selection so spare me the history lesson.

        This still doesn’t change my original comment when I said Blacks (not all Blacks) have various skin tones due to race mixing. Now tell me again how is that boneheaded darling.

      • Irishserra says:

        @V4Real

        You’re dead on. The majority of us are mixed race. “Black” and “white” included. Any other view is just narrow and perhaps a bit naive. And just like you pointed out in the end of your comment, beauty is based on opinion anyway, and if you want to voice it, feel free. I’m an American with Irish, Italian and German ancestry, I’ve got pale freckled skin, green/brown eyes and bright red/blonde hair and to me, olive and dark-skinned, brown-eyed people with dark curls are my ideals when it comes to beauty. That doesn’t mean I don’t find other people beautiful, because I do. But I tend to be drawn to my ideals. We’re all different and we all appreciate different things.

        As for this Barbie girl, I really wish I could have heard and understood her tone when making her statements. The term degeneration… is that what makes this sound so bad? I think she is very ignorant. Come to the U.S. and you will see women of all colors carving up their faces and bodies, not just overtly mixed women.

      • janeFR says:

        @Bread and Circuses

        ” yet it dates back to slavery and beyond. Why do you think Black people come in various skin tones.”

        You may know that there are a lot skin colors (not all due to mixing) but still, it sound that you do not know that not all blacks people descend from slavery and/or are from the states.

      • T.C. says:

        I think saying mixed race children are prettier is kind of racist. Especially in ethnic cultures like Black or Hispanic or Indian they consider mixed race children prettier because they have more non-ethnic features like lighter skin, nicer hair, smaller nose, smaller lips, lighter colored eyes, etc.

        It’s comes from a place of worshipping White as better. And of course these mixed race kids are more rare and seen as exotic. Some of these biracial kids can even look unattractive but as long as they have the light skin and “good hair ” or light colored eyes they are automatically consider better looking than an average Black, Hispanic or Imdian girl.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        @janeFR I think you’re talking to v4real, not me (but you’re making the same point I was. :) )

        @v4real Your original comment was “Why do you think Black people come in various skin tones.” (sic) You did not put any modifiers on “Black people”, so yes, you did imply that you meant all black people. There’s nothing in your words for me to twist — that’s what you said.

        If you phrased it badly, or should have said more to promote clarity, well, then my comment about it being a bone-headed thing to say holds, just for different reasons.

      • V4real says:

        @Circuceses
        You don’t have to put modifiers on a general statement. If I meant all I would have said all Blacks. It’s like saying Black people know how to dance which is a general statement because we know that not all Black people can dance . So yes Im right and you need to quit while you’re not ahead. Who needs clarity on such a general statement, please.

      • V4real says:

        @TC Your comment is not meant for me because I never said mixed race children are prettier, I said most are beautiful. I don’t think anyone on this thread said they are prettier, you said that. People need to stop accusing others of saying something they didn’t. Read carefully.

        @JanFr if that comment was meant for me I know that not all Blacks came from slavery, who said they did.

      • Kerrboom says:

        Well, my husband is Colombian and Italian and I think he’s pretty damn good lookin!

      • Eleanor Zissou says:

        Could someone once and for all explain to me which races there are in The States? Because I’ve heard here Mexicans, Colombians, Cubans ( which I kind of get because they have Native American blood, don’t they?) Armenians, Turks (?!?) being refeered to as different race. Someone even said people from The Balkans are mixed raced ( WTF?!? ).

      • Ahot says:

        @ Colu. Yup, it´s kind of racist. Blanket statements usually are. Say they´re (most of the time) beautiful, but prettiest? They´re not superior because they´re mixed or something. & Being mixed doesn´t make them prettier or better than the other kids.

      • GreenTurtle says:

        Beauty actually has a quite a bit to do with the mixing of races. More mixing has resulted in more symmetry of features, which is considered more attractive…objectively, and also more healthy individuals. It’s called hybrid vigor.

      • GByeGirl says:

        There’s a comedian who does a bit about mixed race kids. He is in a mixed race marriage and he says that people always go on about how beautiful his children will be. His response is that he hopes his kids are ugly, just to prove them wrong!

    • Esmom says:

      Lol! Thank you for my first big laugh of the day. Still wiping tears.

    • QQ says:

      Goddammit I guffawed so loud!

    • db says:

      LOL your comment made my morning, thanks!

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Crikey TOO darn funny! But seriously this woman has issues.

    • Decloo says:

      Is it any wonder that this chick acts like a space alien? Why didn’t the reporter ask her about her lifestyle as a “Breatharian?” I kid you not, she has stated before that she does not eat but instead relies on subsistence through breathing. Obviously she’s eating something or she would be dead. Judging from the looks of her she hasn’t got long.

  2. Dani2 says:

    I guess that air diet makes you pretty damn stupid huh?

  3. blue marie says:

    Yeah, this lady’s so smart she modeled herself after a fictional toy, that pretty much negates anything that comes out of her mouth for me.

  4. Kathrin says:

    Everyone thinks you’re an idiot… everyone! It’s global now!

  5. Clever hand says:

    I love this site so much because there is intelligent discussion of topics like Hollywood, PR and marketing tricks. That’s why I’m so sad when you report on obvious trolls like this one and fit mom.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      I don’t think she’s a troll, I think she’s genuinely mentally ill as a result of sexual abuse or mental problems. If you read up on her, you’ll see how insane she’s become. There’s a mini documentary about her on YouTube. In it, you will see her naturally gorgeous and unassuming sister. Maybe that’s what drove her over the edge.

  6. eliza says:

    That thing is human?

    Barbie is NOT amused (The real Barbie).

    The only thing that looks real on her is her feet.

    • V4Real says:

      I think all little girls have now thrown down thier Barbie Dolls in disgust and picked up their brothers GI Joe Action Figures in protest.

      • Ms_TShady says:

        @VReal I have to say- you DO need to put qualifiers on a generalised statement; otherwise, you are, you know, generalising!

        Your previous comment makes sense only in the context of African Americans, not in the the wider picture of all/most people of African descent.

        There is incredible genetic variance across the continent of Africa: more so between two tribes of the same land than there is between two entire countries in Europe.

        It is frustrating when people make comments like “typical African nose- wide and flat with big nostrils”. This is such a blinkered view of a african genotypes.

        TL:DR Africans don’t need European blood to have lighter shades of skin. Look at any family, of African descent or not; we are never all exactly the same colour as our parents and siblings. Genes are crazy that way.

  7. Belle Epoch says:

    Holy Cr*p! Degeneration? Seriously? Children are revolting? What is WRONG with her? She’s got problems a sammich won’t solve.

    • Amelia says:

      Poor girl needs HELP. Who the hell in her family let her get like this?!
      From the International Business Times;
      ‘It was recently revealed how Valeria Lukyanova intends to train herself to be able to live on just air and light alone. “In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I’m hoping it’s the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone,” Valeria said.’
      She has a BA in Architecture, so clearly she has a couple of brain cells to spare. I’m almost convinced she’s mentally ill somehow. I can’t believe her family or her spouse (she’s married to her childhood friend) can watch her do this to herself.

  8. HK9 says:

    FrankenBarbie needs to hit up her surgeon for a brain.

  9. Anaya says:

    What has she done to her eyes? I don’t have much to say about her comments except that she’s a total idiot.

  10. Sam says:

    I for one am glad that she addressed this issue. I was having a hard time sleeping trying to imagine what her thoughts were on race mixing and now I can rest easy. I wish she would have addressed some other issues, like the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict or perhaps what’s going on in Syria as I don’t really know how I should feel about that yet. Maybe in the next interview.

  11. MrsBPitt says:

    An ACTUAL Barbie doll has more brains than this freak!

  12. BW says:

    I can’t wait until she starts aging. There’s only so much skin you can stretch.

    By the way, I love old people. At parties, I like to hang out with the old people, because they are cute and tell all the best stories. I think wrinkles are adorable.

    • SolitaryAngel says:

      Yeah, and they’re a handy excuse for when you need to fart in public…by the time you’ve cleared the area and the stench is curling their nose hairs, you’ll see the women angrily elbowing their husbands while totally believing ‘their’ guy did it!!! LMAO

    • Erinn says:

      I love old people, too. I always thought it was so cool that my 90 year old gramp was wearing Ray Bans up until he passed. He had cooler glasses than I do.

      Somehow, I don’t think she’ll live long enough to age toooo much. I can’t imagine anything about her lifestyle is healthy.

    • Abby_J says:

      She will end up as Lady Cassandra from Doctor Who!

      I wonder if she ever gets actual men interested in her. You know, ones that aren’t cray cray like she is?

    • Mel says:

      I know you mean well, but “old people” are not a race or a homogeneous segment of population, no more than “young people” are (and probably much less, because of a lesser tendency to conform and imitate others), so how can they be “cute” (or anything) en bloc?
      I find that really condescending.

      “Old people” are simply people, INDIVIDUALS, who have lived more years than other people. One would expect – certainly hope – they would retain their individuality in other people’s eyes.

      • Meggie says:

        I love this comment so much. This^

        We are all aging. Being old doesn’t make one a different species.

      • Snowpea says:

        You know, Mel, I know you ‘mean well’ but as an aged care worker of many years standing, I would like to respectfully disagree.

        I look after people in their homes and my clients are all 90 and up, some of them 100 and older.

        Something very interesting happens after about the age of 85. You have lots of time to reflect back on your life and you finally understand the stupidity of all the social etiquette and artifice that we feel we are forced to adhere to when we are young, thus wasting precious time on earth.

        Old people tell stories about how they lost their virginity, their greatest regrets, their sadnesses, their joys, their losses, their embarrassments and their shames and they do so with a desire to share the human experience, knowing how finite our time is here.

        Old people drink tea out of a beautiful china cup, knowing if they don’t do that now, then when?

        Old people know that you must save for a rainy day, because one day that rainy day will arrive and you will end up in a pickle.

        Old people know that you don’t waste things; that you recycle bits of string, re-use wrapping paper, save the vegetable scraps for the compost and turn lights off whe you leave the room.

        Old people know that a good bed rest and a cup of tea will solve most problems.

        Old people know that an evening stroll helps your dinner digest and keeps you fit and slim.

        Now do you understand? “Old people” ARE a special sector of our society purely because the getting of wisdom has made them so.

        It breaks my heart the way old people are hidden away. They deserve our reverence and respect and love and time because they have so much to contribute, share and pass on.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Snowpea, that’s sweet, but I’ve known plenty of old people who were nothing like what you’re describing. Old people aren’t all alike. As Mel said, they are individuals. Some of them are the wise, drinking out of china cups and going for strolls type. Some of them are sarcastic or funny or like to gamble or drink too much or are total jerks. They’re just people. They should be treated with dignity and respect, and by lumping them together like they’re one person, you’re not doing that. They need to be SEEN. For who they actually are, not stereotyped and romanticized. Just like everyone else does.

  13. ~Z~ says:

    So……
    I am extremely curious…….Do ANY guys find this chick attractive?
    I mean geez, there are so many people walking around with plastic boobs and faces, but this is so many levels beyond.
    If I were a guy, I would RUN. It’s freaky as hell, and so incredibly obvious she has some serious SERIOUS issues going on in her head. And I’m not even talking about the racism!

  14. Nicolette says:

    This human blow up doll is one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. She doesn’t look real, it’s creepy. Her thighs are incredibly long, her torso looks like it’s made out of plastic, her almost non-existant waist, and her enormous Disney character-like eyes. Seriously, how did they get her eyes to look like that? It’s sick.

    “It’s unacceptable to me. The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me… I’d rather die from torture because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle.” Wow! Not everyone wants kids, but to say you’d rather be tortured. I just can’t.

    • Macey says:

      She actually said a little more than that and I hate to say it but she actually made sense about why some ppl have kids.

      here is the full quote..
      “The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me. Most people have children to fulfill their own ambitions, not to give anything. They don’t think about what they can give this child, what they can teach her. They just try to shape her according to some weird script—whatever they couldn’t do in life, like becoming a writer or a doctor. Or some woman who’s almost 30 and thinks no one needs her, she says, ‘Oh, I’ll have a kid. He will love me and become my reason to live.’ And then this kid becomes a soccer ball she and her boyfriend will kick back and forth. I’d rather die from torture, because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle.”

      the chick has issues and should not be allowed to speak but I actually agree with her on some of this only b/c I see so many have kids for the wrong reasons and then what happens later to both the mom and child.

      that said, is her face heavily photoshopped in these pics or does she actually look like that?

  15. Liberty says:

    A plastic Barbie who wants no children. How is Clooney not dating her? He can have her disgusting racism bone surgically removed like her ribs. Hurry, George, before Putin buys her!

    PS — I think her eyes are the creepiest part.

  16. Trillian says:

    We really needed to hear HER opinion on beauty? BTW I am not mixed race and I have my dad’s nose. And I wouldn’t dream of “filing it down”. Some of us are ok with our looks ;-)

  17. Ag says:

    i am scared and confused after reading this story and looking at her pics. she’s a run-of-the-mill racist, so that’s sad and pathetic. but is this her “real” face? i mean, is she wearing a mask? or is this her face-face? if this is what she looks like, holy sh*t. holy sh*t. i didn’t know that plastic surgery can achieve such horrifying results.

  18. Kiddo says:

    “Her steady drift from reality and into the twenty-first dimension…” Sounds like the lead in for a cautionary tale in the Twilight zone.

  19. Tippy says:

    Did they use real plastic?

  20. minime says:

    I can’t even care about what she said, she has clearly severe psychological issues. Who the hell perform this kind of extreme surgery in someone so young and with clear mental problems??!

  21. allons-y alonso says:

    whatever she/it is, I’ll be seeing it in my nightmares

  22. Ellie66 says:

    Have u guys seen her before all the plastic surgery? She looks like a Russian hooker from the 90s not a Barbie. Ridiculous air-sucking idiot!

  23. Heyitsmerc says:

    The only thing that’s clearly “degenerating” is her brain! She’s a hypocrite talking about people of mixed races wanting plastic surgery when she’s done what she’s done to herself! Chill out with the “air & light” diet and eat some protein & vitamins Barbie-wannabe your brain’s turning to plastic!

  24. Samigirl says:

    She’s not a feminist? Well you could have knocked me over with a feather.

  25. mena says:

    First there’s the doc that says the Sun revolves around the Earth. Now, this one says races shouldn’t mix. What’ll the next WTF story be? I know there’s some kinda trifecta gonna happen here.

  26. Camilla says:

    Well, at least she would rather “die of torture” than have children, so I guess we won’t have to worry about her reproducing.

    • Lou says:

      Word. I am so grateful she isn’t spreading her morals to any future children. What a messed-up role model!

      And hot damn, that surgery is terrifying. I don’t see how anybody could ever take her seriously. Mind you, that’s probably not her goal.

      And mixed race babies ARE gorgeous. I don’t think that’s racist, really. I could be wrong though. But most babies are gorgeous.

  27. Kaye says:

    This woman seriously eeks me out.

  28. Jen says:

    My parents say that about mixed-race kids too!

    I am personally a fan of all babies of any ethnicity, particularly massively fat ones, grumpy ones and ones that giggle a lot. And ones with dimples.

  29. Poppy Q says:

    Wow.This might be the most messed up looking individual I`ve ever seen.What the hell happened to this woman to make her this way?.

  30. Evi says:

    I’m amazed that she can rub two brain cells together.

  31. erindipity says:

    I desperately want to see what she looks like without makeup. Would she be freakier, or less freaky? I’m really not sure which it would be.

  32. lower-case deb says:

    with all these surgery things, what will happen when she hits the age when surgery just can’t help her anymore. where she looks more grinchy than barbie, more zuckuss than c3po, one slave leia short of a jabba the hut?

  33. FingerBinger says:

    This woman is so odd looking, I just want to see the guy who would date and/or marry her.

  34. mimi says:

    When I first saw these pictures, I thought it was a mannequin. The eyes are really freaking me out but her quotes are freaking me out even more. This is deeply disturbing on every level.

  35. yennefer says:

    Because mixed race children ARE the prettiest, the most fertile, the healthiest. If this doll had any basic biology knowledge, she would have known about term “the gene pool” and how it is important for any species to spread theirs. it’s funny, because Ukrainian women are among the prettiest in Europe because of various ethnicities (i. e. Turkish) invading their lands and the rapes that went along it.

    It’s so stupid I ran out of the words. Maybe she should go to some Barbie highschool or something.

    • LadySlippers says:

      And not only that, ethnicities have been ‘mixing’ from the start (migration, wars, politics, etc.). There is NO such thing as a pure ethnicities anything.

        The Japanese as a race are apparently one of the “purest”, simply because we never really got invaded, or had much in the way of migration. But yes, we’re not “pure” either. Spreading the gene pool also helps eliminate certain racial problems (eg. bad eyesight), so I reckon we did the right thing here with our child. I mean look at all the problems pure bred dogs are facing these days – from hip problems to epileptic fits!

      • LadySlippers says:

        Lemon,

        I lived in Japan, and the ‘pure’ thing is just a myth. The Japanese DO have more variance than even they will admit (a Japanese person from the Northern part of the country looks very different from the people from the Southern part of the country. Heck Okinawans didn’t want to even call themselves Japanese after they were conquered before WWII) .

        They love this myth and tout it to proclaim their natural superiority over other cultures but it’s BS. Granted, they isolated themselves for centuries but that’s all it was — isolation.

      • Lemonsorbet says:

        I agree with you. Compared to most of my countrymen, my ancestry sees me as more mongrel than most. Although I don’t have Ryukyu in me, apparently I have Ainu, which would already make me less “pure” in the eyes of nationalistic idiots. I just meant the Japanese as a whole have had less invasions etc, and less of migrations from the continent, much less so than the British (also a nation of islands), which is apparently a rarity in terms of gene pools. In that sense, and genetically-speaking (from genetic make up tests like the one from National Geographic), not many other races come up relatively isolated/pure.

        Again, ultra right wingers (Uyoku) will undoubtedly carp on about purity, but not all of us are like that. And Japan only had an isolation period (Sakoku) in the Edo era which was only 264 years. Even during that time the Dutch merchant ships were regular visitors, and some even stayed on!

        Thank you. This thread needs a dose of Homi Bhabha. :)

    • NayeinVA says:

      I believe that, as it goes along with the whole “we are all mutts” thing, because that’s true. What I have a problem with are people who believe that having a bi-racial child automatically means they get the beauty end of the stick, and the rest of us “less-exotic” children, aren’t quite as beautiful. The same with those Black women who want to marry a white or Hispanic person so that their child has “good” hair. I’m glad to see the widespread acceptance of mixed-race children, especially as all of my nieces and nephews are mixed race, however, we should see the value in all races equally, not create yet ANOTHER divide by calling mixed race children “the prettiest.” Some babies are cute some aren’t and that is entirely independent of which race they are.

      • FingerBinger says:

        There are quite a few people on here who’ve made these blanket statements about mixed race children being the prettiest. There are beautiful people in all races. These are the same people that fawn over Lupita Nyong’o and her dark skin,but now ‘mixed race people are the most beautiful’. Right.

      • BendyWindy says:

        I was coming to say something similar. Saying mixed race kids are prettier/more beautiful just exoticizes them and paints them as “other.” As the black mother of biracial kids, it makes me uncomfortable when people, even in my own family, tell me how beautiful they are because their skin is light, their hair wavy and one of them has gray eyes. They are beautiful because they’re mine, not because they have good hair.

      • NayeinVA says:

        @FingerBinger it’s a really dumb statement. I mean I can see where it originated, and why people would feel the need to uplift their mixed race children in the face of being called mutts, oreos, and half breeds, but it’s still very socially irresponsible. My daughter has two Black parents. What if I had another child by someone who wasn’t Black and that was the opinion floating around, that her brother/sister is automatically prettier because they are mixed. How inferior would she feel, especially in a society already set up to make her feel inferior? The purpose is now inverted because a child feels superior to another solely because of their race. Secondly, it can create a damaging fixation on looks. Whenever someone has asked me if I was mixed I have enjoyed stating that both of my parents were Black, and both of their parents were considered Black, and nobody was mixed until my great-grandparents, and seeing the surprise, as though beauty doesn’t stand on its own outside of geneaology. Its insulting.

      • LadySlippers says:

        And these comments also ignore mixed race children that *aren’t* blessed with amazing looks — and some are even ugly (sorry it’s true). Can you imagine the poor kids that everyone wants to ooh and aah over and find out that they disappoint because they don’t fit our ‘cute mixed child’ stereotype? Stereotypes aren’t fair to anyone.

        Human beings, regardless of their genetic heritage, run the gamut of drop dead gorgeous to butt ugly. Period/Full Stop.

      • NayeinVA says:

        @Ladyslippers

        That’s what I meant about the fixation on looks as well. All that ever does is create problems, and we have enough trouble comparing ourselves to each other without throwing a racial beauty standard into the mix.

      • I Choose Me says:

        I’m in total agreement. When it comes to genetics nothing is automatic. You’re basically rolling the dice. Two pretty people don’t automatically have good looking children. And two not so good looking people can have a gorgeous child. Etcetera.

      • Jessiebes says:

        Wow. Before this threat I was of the opinion that mixed race people are the prettiest too. Never really thought it through.

        So thank you all for the education and I will now delete that opinion (ie for the better).

    I wondered why you posted a pic of a real Barbie doll, and then I opened the article. Now, I am scared.

  38. Helvetica says:

    How old is she?

    She looks like a freak show. I can only imagine how scary it is inside her head. Psychologists would have a field day with her.

  39. cody says:

    I can’t believe GQ is giving this barbie doll any attention at all. Is this suppose to turn men on or off?. I guess subscriptions are really down.

  40. Snazzy says:

    Just looking at her pic scares the crap out of me …

  41. dd says:

    Yep. She’s a scary looking weirdo, but, damn, she has an excellent boob job. No space between them and they’re so firm. LeAnn Rimes should get her plastic surgeon’s number.

  45. and you just gave her more publicity…sigh.

  46. Kiki says:

    So, why does she have so much plastic surgery? Is she mixed too? Is she “degenerated” (her own words)? Does she dislike herself? Cause I do! Ugly ignorant woman.

    • wonderwoman21 says:

      That’s what i was thinking; if her beauty is so raciallt pure then why is she so drastically altered by plastic surgery? And plastic surgery is less about race mixing and more about narrow mainstream beauty ideals. Also, pretty sure lots of white women have gotten nose jobs. This girl is kidding herself and grasping for reasons to be “superior”; b*tch is kidding herself if she thinks she’s Nordic!

  47. teehee says:

    I dont remember Barbie having such over inflated breasts…?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I read something once about the ratio of Barbie’s breast size to her waist size, and it translated in human statistics to her being very large, like DD. I can’t remember all of the details, or why on earth I was reading about it, but do remember the result being that Barbie had a very unrealistic body shape and very large breasts. This, like many of my stories, would be a lot more interesting if I could remember wtf I’m talking about.

  48. Adrien says:

    I’m mixed but I cannot be bothered by human Barbie’s opinion. I mean, she’s clearly touched in the head. Why did GQ give her a platform? That woman obviously has mental and body image issues and GQ went ahead to feature her and feed into her delusions.

  49. Talie says:

    I wonder how she got her eyes like that — so crazy!

  50. Suzy from Ontario says:

    I’m pretty sure Barbie has a more normal/believeable shape than she does in that top picture, which is really saying something since Barbie is not exactly shaped like a normal woman! She’s bizarre and clearly has mental issues. Makes you wonder what the heck happened in her early years for her to have the beliefs she has about women and children.

    As for mixed races not being beautiful and that’s why there’s more plastic surgery? Ridiculous! Some of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen are mixed race…not just black/white but other cultural mixes as well. I think mixing often brings some really fascinating and interesting features together and that can often end up being strikingly beautiful. Not to say non-mixed kids/women can’t be gorgeous as well. It’s a spin of the gene wheels really and what I think is beautiful might not be what you think is beautiful, but regardless, her comments are ignorant. And her views on having children are just really weird. Like I said, it makes me wonder what her own childhood was like.

  51. Zen16 says:

    Could imagine the nightmares that some of us will be having tonight, ughhh. She doesn’t even look human so I wouldn’t even acknowledge her comments. Either she wasn’t born with a brain or it was removed to make room for those humongous eyes.

  52. idk says:

    She’s all about keeping races “pure” and not mixing but she has no problem wearing an Indian tikka and a bindi on her head? So she’s only racist when it comes to certain things lol?

    How much money is she making off of this? I do have to say what she said about why some people have kids is very true. I’m actually glad she’s not having kids though, she would mentally ruin that child.

    Lastly, she does that “blank stare” way better than Kim Kardashian.

  53. Vanderhootchie says:

    Body dysmorphic disorder and mental instability at its most severe. Period.

  54. About race mixing–I think that, today, that’s a huge deal because of slavery, and also back when the conquerors (Spanish, French, English, etc) were taking over huge parts of America, and other countries. You know–back then, it was nothing to have a child i.e. rape a woman whose country you were destroying, and then use that child the same way you would use a slave. Absolutely nothing.

    There is a ton of racism tied into mixed race kids, and also into the people who don’t go outside their boxes. I know that my uncle had a child when he was really young, back in the seventies, with a woman who was black and Mexican. The two families lived across the street from each other, in the same neighborhood–but my uncle’s girlfriend’s family thought that they were better than my family, because they were lighter skinned and had ‘good’ hair. I mean seriously–the mother would SWEEP the dirt off, into the street, from the sidewalk in from of their house every day.

    I think that there’s an overload of ‘mixed raced babies are the most gorgeous!!!’, because up until a few decades ago, you could argue (but basically starting in the seventies) that mixed race children (especially white/any other race) were the dirty little secrets for the most part–didn’t belong anywhere–black or white.

    I think about my grandmother, and her sisters. She’s black, white, and Native American. She looks white. She used to have LONG, gorgeous dark hair. She grew up during the Depression in the South. A few of her sisters have blonde hair and blue eyes. I’m wondering how much harder her life was, being that she was a light skinned biracial woman during the Jim Crow era. I wonder if that is why she married my grandfather–who is so dark that he looks like he was caught in a house fire (as my MOM says)–so that her kids wouldn’t have to go through what she did.

    And I am kinda noticing a sublte racism among my cousins–the female ones anyway. Like they don’t say racist things, and a lot of them are kind of idiots when it comes to guys–but I honestly think a lot of them would choose to date a black man who has six kids with six different mothers, no job (and if they do, then it’s somewhere at Burger King), and who’ll lay around their house and eat all their shit, and talk shit about them while they’re doing it–than date someone who has a ‘real’ job (not working as a cashier at McDonalds at 28, and not going to school or anything like that, or trying to better theirself) who would happen to be white or Asian or something like that.

    I don’t know if it’s because they like useless men in general, or if it’s a thing about them not stepping outside their race. Which is SO stupid. My mom is most attracted to black men. But the black men that she was around made it clear to her, that she ranked lower than the hooker on the corner–so gasp! she got tired of that, and started dating men who were interested in HER. Which is how I think it should be–it’s fine to have your physical preferences, but when it comes down to it….get a person that will treat you right.

    Like my mom told me she would LOVE some chocolate skinned grandchildren (she said I have to adopt a few)–but she said ultimitely, she doesn’t give a f-ck if the dude is Chinese, Eskimo, Mexican, Iranian–whatever…..just pick someone with a damn job and who treats you good (her words).

    *I’m in fine form today, this is really long..;…..

    • homegrrrl says:

      Race is actually a cultural construct and does not exist biologically. Even with a tan skinned person and a lighter skinned person, they are generally more alike than different physiologically; the noticeable difference is skin which represents a small portion of overall qualities. FrankenBarbie is as superficial as her looks when it comes to science; a “degeneration” would occur if a small population only bred with their small community. Genetic resilience comes from procreating outside a band or tribe.

      Now can I get my gossip rag on? This girl is freaky and tacky, like a horror movie- can she blink? Does she sleep like a dead person?

    • Jane says:

    I am feeling grateful that this racist, plastic fool has no intention of reproducing. Imagine what harm her opinions could do to a child! Heaven forbid if she had a child that she didn’t think was beautiful enough for her insane standard of beauty. She makes me feel that we need a new category of Darwin Award; for those we are grateful that they chose to not contribute to the gene pool.

  59. I Choose Me says:

    Oh Geez looking at her makes me cringe so hard. I’ve seen her (on Youtube) and it’s like watching an inanimate object speak. There’s just no there there, you know?

    It’s all photoshopped. She’s getting dodgy at it too. I followed her for a little bit in 2012 when she was first mentioned around May. It was before she went completely nuts. She was always kooky but then she started getting publicity. The racism isn’t anything new, she was a Neo-Nazi at one point. my name will link you to a tumblr that tells you other crap that her and her fellow dolls have done.

  65. Ginger says:

    My son is mixed race (I am of European descent and my ex is part Native American) and his cousin is as well (his mother is part Mexican). BUT when you look at the two of them there is virtually NOTHING to give away that fact. They look like Caucasian children. I love that it’s such a surprise to people when they find out that one is part Mexican and the other is part Native American. And they are the most handsome boys (but I’m biased). Never judge a book by it’s cover. I know I was thrilled at the prospect of mixing up our bloodline. I’ve been teaching both boys to be so proud of their ancestors but don’t let your genetics define who you are. That’s only a small part of who you are in the world. I don’t understand Barbie at all. I am fascinated by her photos however. I’m left wondering if it’s all makeup and plastic surgery or part Photoshop? Probably all of the above. I too don’t want to give her any attention but I still can’t help staring at how odd she looks.

  69. JenniferJustice says:

    So, it’s not okay with her to mix races but it is okay to mix chemicals, poisons, carcenogens, and materials we don’t even know the effects of yet, with her body? Also, I would have to think the reason so many women shave down their large ethnic noses is because they feel the need to look like something they are not – not because they are any less beautiful than they were 50 years ago. Beauty was defined completely differently before plastic surgery hit the scene – plastic surgery skewed the definition of beauty – not interracial children. Kim Kardashian shaved her nose, face and body down to look svelt because that’s what she thinks she needs to look like to be deemed beautiful. She is a freak now. She actually was beautiful when she had her Armenian nose and a regular curvy body. Halle Berry is biracial and absolutely beautiful while Barbie girl claims to be ethnically pure – Northern European, and she is not only not beautiful, but obviously has body dysmorphia because she is the only one who thinks she is beautiful. I wish we could make her understand that people don’t stare at her because they are enraptured with her beauty. They stare at her because she is a freak.

  70. Annie says:

    While I don’t agree with Valeria that race mixing is wrong I also don’t agree that mixed race automatically=prettier. Medium brown coloring isn’t the only skin that is beautiful. I myself think more “extreme” looks, like when someone looks uber Nordic or far east Asian or has very dark skin it can be very striking and beautiful. Tilda Swinton, Alek Wek and Iman for example all have a type of beauty that couldn’t be produced by race mixing.

    And the reason there were more beautiful women around decades ago has to do with 2 things 1)Soaring obesity rates. 2)It has become socially acceptable, even encouraged to look like a slob and a slut.

  71. vvvoid says:

    LOL, of course she subscribes to Hooton’s notion of physical anthropology. Of course.

Of course I think my daughters are gorgeous, and I am blessed to live in a very racially diverse area of Calif. and the USA in general. Sometimes I think bi-racial childen are such a blessing because they naturally build bridges between cultures. Where I live, bi-racial kids are actually the norm. Poor Barbie, she really seems like the saddest creature on the planet. Well at least she recognizes it would be a mistake for her to have kids. Long live the melting pot!

SO THERE!

    As someone who is of mixed race herself (Mexican/Norwegian) I always thought it was odd to say that mixed children are prettiest. Pretty? Absolutely. But it was always unfair I thought to other kids, whether they be black, white, brown etc, implying they aren’t as good. But then on the other side of the coin you have people like Barbie bitch saying we (mixed race) are an abomination and shouldn’t be here so…

    All children are beautiful in my opinion, and every parent will think their child is perfect in their eyes, as it should be.
