“Skinny Minnie Mouse” from Barneys’ the Fashion Standard or Fashion Faux Pas?

As someone who studies society, I was very bothered when I saw these images of Disney characters. Girls and women have enough pressure put on them by photoshopped supermodels, anorexic actresses, and general media scrutiny. Lady Gaga is one of a list of celebrities who has taken some heat in the media for not being a size zero. I hope you will join me and others in protesting the Skinny Disney Character campaign from Barneys.
