Adios Barbie is proud to be “the body image site for every body.” Intersectionality, media criticism, and feminism are crucial to the content that we produce. We are the only body image site that inspires folks of all sizes, ages, sexual orientations, races, and abilities to own the power we all possess. As such, we’re interested in reading articles and content relating to all bodies and lived experiences, especially marginalized ones. In particular, we’re always on the lookout for articles touching the following topics:
- Gender Norms/Roles
- LGBTQIA Issues
- Media Literacy/Media Representation
- Race and Culture
