The perks of being disabled.

Because sometimes being an outsider it's not an option.

Mattel launched this doll in 1998, her name is Becky:”Becky doll is the hip and trendy photographer friend to Barbie. She comes with a camera, red stud earrings, sunglasses and a backpack that hangs from the back of her wheelchair”. I don’t know if it’s still manufactured, but I found it interesting to post. 

What do you think about this? Is it a great way to teach girls different beauty role models or an useless (or maybe offensive) effort?

This is not my personal opinion, it’s just a question. Let me read your thoughts!?
