This new barbie commercial features a young boy playing with the Moschino barbie. This commercial demolishes the stereotypical male behavior that boys do not play with barbies or care about fashion. The young boy in the commercial who is playing with the barbie is dressed fashionably and seems to highly care about his appearance, which is not expected of masculine gender behavior. This commercial relates to our current discussion in class about gender identity in regards to the articles about the male children who like to wear dresses and play with feminine toys, like dolls. The commercial is implying that the Moschino barbie is gender balanced and that boys and girls can play with barbies, instead of having children-targeted products for boys and girls. This commercial is the first time the Mattel company has used a boy to market a product, in which it is getting praise, yet backlash as well. This commercial is the perfect example of breaking gender stereotypes. This commercial also stresses the ability to allow a children to embrace their self-expression, like the families did with their young boys to allow them to wear dresses to school or play with both gender toys. This commercial brings to the forefront one of the biggest controversies surrounding being gender fluid or otherwise known as the "middle space." Society continues to question whether it is socially acceptable to all boys and girls to dress, behave, and play in any way they choose whether it be considered masculine or feminine. I think Mattel is headed in the right direction to include boys in their barbie commercials.
