Yes, I went. Yes, I cried...a lot. So yes, I should have worn waterproof mascara! Yes, I should have brought more tissues! And YES! I loved it!! So much that I'm going again this Sunday with another girlfriend. Maybe this time I won't have to try watching it through my tears.

I'm not completely sure, but I believe recently being told that I am an intersex female, and the knowledge that I truly am a woman, had a major effect on my response to seeing the Barbie movie. I was so in touch with all the female characters and it brought back so many memories from my childhood. I have always been feminine! I don't have a masculine bone in my body! When my sister got Barbies and I got Tonka trucks, I looked at my mom and tried not to cry.

The movie is also a very poignant, but definitely pointed, social commentary. Which is why it has apparently offended many who are all in an uproar, and a certain podcaster going to a store to purchase quite a few Barbie dolls just so he could film himself lighting them on fire!

I love the movie, it will always be dear to my feminine heart, and I can honestly say that it helped affirm and validate me as a woman traveling this new pathway on my journey.

Big hugs ladies,

Ms. Lauren M

Glad you loved it. And I was lucky my sister let me play barbies with her when I was little.  The two ones my sister let me be was skipper and the pump up her boobs barbie, guess growing barbie, so the movie reference was wonderful.

Guess it was not just me who teared up.
