Feminist Hacker Barbie Site Allows You To Rewrite That Horribly Sexist Book Yourself

By  | 

I love Barbie. My Barbie was always a feminist, so I get really annoyed when someone comes along a creates some drivel and attributes it to her. Yes, I’m talking about that awful “I Can Be A Computer Engineer” book, in which Barbie does nothing but defer all of the coding to her male friends. It was crap.

Someone has created something to make it fantastic though. It’s called Feminist Hacker Barbie, and it is fun. The site displays the pages of the Barbie book, lets you edit the text, and generates new images for you.

Thank you, The Mary Sue, for bringing this amazing site to my attention and allowing me to waste way too much time on the internet today. I’m passing along the time-suck to you all. You’re Welcome!

Oh, man. I’m easy to please. As The Mary Sue points out, the site was created by “a real life feminist computer engineer, because who needs boys to fix things?”
