    I understand where Iran is coming from when they want to discourage Barbie. Barbie and her sexy revealing outfits shocks their culture where women aren't supposed to be dressed that way. In our culture it's probably like introducing a package of "Ken and his wives" or a "gay Ken" toy (with a possible package of married Ken and Joe). Even if they're just toys, such propositions will surely get a negative reaction from people who want to present something else (more aligned to their beliefs and culture) to their kids.

    Obviously you have no idea of what's important.

    How can you even think about terrorists when our main venue towards destroying the traditions, morals, and values of Iranian children is taken away?
