Friday Doll Blogging

I went to a great party last weekend. I won a prize...a doll!!

I have to marvel at how far women have come since the early struggle for women's rights.

Her name is Action Angel. (Note to feminists: she can be active yet still demure and sweet!!)

And above all, she is dressed in a hot costume with slimming red satin pants and tiny black combat boots. (Birkenstocks are definitely OUT this season!) And her long blonde tresses never become tangled when she is in Action!

It should also be noted that she carries a shield and an assault rifle. Now some would say this self-defense thing has gone too far, or is she now supposed to be both aggressor or protector?

However, she also has a medical bag, to patch up those she must shoot when she is being active but also in angel mode. There seems to be some conflict between whether she is huntress or nurturer of perhps a bit of both.

And what does the shield guard against, not bullets? It is a large shield, does she also fight people with swords accasionally? Are there ninja adversaries out there that I am unaware of? Is this in response to terrorists that may lurk in the halls of our shopping malls? The mystery deepens.

Women, wake up, it's a new day- Madison Avenue dictates- your roles are changing!
(And your draft cards will be in the mail shortly.)

It's not only your right, betmo, it's now your duty.

god, the people that come up with this crap need to be shot. (a great solution for combating violence)

Wow, this may be a bigger deal than the rejuvenating Batwoman as a lesbian, according to DC Comics’ press release, is part of company-wide effort to celebrate diversity. Being queer, apparently, is “different” and “unique.”

A few small mercies: she may be wearing ridiculous heels, but at least she has a non-impossible body. No beach-ball boobs, no wasp-waist, no thong…. and thighs made for actual running and ass-kicking. Nonetheless, her coming-out, which will surely be temporary, is obviously just an attention-getting device.

No self-respecting superhero (gay or straight) should be wearing a giant mane of high-maintenance playboy-centerfold hair.

Except possibly for Glenda, although I keep my tresses under a crown.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were royalty, and that you were wearing a crown. I thought it was just your tiara. My eyesight is not so good anymore.

No, I'm not royalty, well, Ok, so I am, but it's my Good Witch crown. No need to split the parsnip, though.

Doesn't that doll come as a free gift with every purchase of Ann Coulter's new book?

I don't think she'll do very well in the field--red is definitely not a good fashion choice for desert (or city) combat.

Glenda, got your email but it wouldn't let me reply, so this is what I said back to you:

Thanks. Have a great summer, heat and all. We've been hitting 95 by 8:00 am the past few days here in AZ so I know it's summer time, regardless of the what the calendar says. I'll have to check in on TX politics and in the Dallas area to see what's happening. Isn't politics great?

nice...i want one!

 
At 6:25 PM, Blogger glenda said...

sothis...that's very funny. Wish I'd thought of that. It does look like Ann Coulter.

Eprof, Glad to see ya. You got a new pic! Check this out on Tom Delay. The TX Dems have filed a temp restraining order to keep him from aking his name off the ballet, and place a substiute candidate on it. Since he raised money in his name, it is against Tx. law to do that, on the theory that those who contribute to campaign funds should not be subjected to the old bait and switch, So the election in Brazos coutny should be interesting. Gov. Perry blocked a special election since it was obvious a Dem would be elected in that county. They are the only county right now in the US with taxation without representation.

celticfire...I have no idea where my party host bought this...sorry, but if you check on the internet...possibly! She is vERY revolutionary.

How many clips are included with Action Angel's machine gun? And does she store the ammo in the medical bag next to the defibrilator? I'm oddly fascinated with her.

I'm concerned with what this action figure will do to young girls(young boyes too but in a different way). It does not have a Glock or any other handgun visible and everyone knows that action figures have a hidden weapon. Very irresponsible.

 
At 8:24 PM, Blogger Jeremy said...

If she looks like Coulter...does she come with an Adam's apple and an dangerously thinning meth habit? Just wondering is all...

 
At 8:39 PM, Blogger glenda said...

The assault weapon is one piece molded plastic, sorry, clips will cost you extra. Unlike my Kalashnikov.

I assume you all keep a semi-automatic under your bed as well, it's standard practice down here, right next to the Bible and glow in the dark plastic Jesus. I just know Jesus would have a Glock if he was with us in the flesh now.

pt- many men are fasinated wit hot dangerous women.
jeremy- no drugs, she is hooked on phonics.

Yes, Glenda and some men are fascinated with hot dangerous dolls! :>)

glenda, how can YOU possibly say birkenstocks are out this summer? you didn't even know that polka dots were IN ?!

i was at a gay wedding last night where both the action figure AND Batwoman were put to sartorial shame. and you shoud have seen the women, too.

 
At 10:07 AM, Blogger glenda said...

poetryman, yes, my own allure in that department has been pointed out many times, but I think they were talking about the weather and my driving..

Weezie, I can't beleive you didn't invite me to crash this wedding. I could have taken pictures for the happy couple.

Less plastic on her than what I see on T.V. at times...

Now all I need is a granddaughter so that I can go out and buy one...wait is that sexist? Should I get this for my grandson?

 
At 3:01 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Hey, fred, and less botox than on TV too.

tabor, girls with planes, boys with dolls, either way, whatever the kid wants to play with. I usually just have a big box of toys and let'em fight over them.

PENN HAS TORTURE DOLL

Hollywood activist SEAN PENN has a plastic doll of conservative US columnist ANN COULTER that he likes to abuse when angry. The Oscar-winner actor has hated Coulter ever since she blacklisted his director father LEO PENN in her book TREASON. And he takes out his frustrations with Coulter, who is a best-selling author, lawyer and television pundit, on the Barble-like doll. In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, Penn reveals, "We violate her. There are cigarette burns in some funny places. She's a pure snake-oil salesman. She doesn't believe a word she says."

i would think she would
have a hard time living with herself if she believes what she said. but then, denial is a powerful thing. one of the best pieces of advise i received from a grad school prof was 'beware the true believer, no matter what it is they believe.'

there is one person in coulter's universe i feel empathy for - her therapist!

I am most fond of her machine gun!
Every good little Revolutionary needs one!
I would have played this toy out when I was a kid!

Yes, i is revolutionary.

Well you know I love the boots!

 
At 9:47 AM, Blogger Kathleen Callon said...

Love this. Does she come with a flammable bra and chewing tobacco? A dominatrix kit to keep her prisoners of war under control? Machine gun is better than a doily apron, I say.

 
At 4:14 PM, Blogger Citisucks said...

Will the next edition come with murdered non-white child or will we have to buy that separately?

 
At 10:57 AM, Blogger glenda said...

wow. you guys are creative. We could marke a whole line of political satire dolls. Hmmm, I smell a post in here somewhere.
