Barbie Movie: Acceptance & I felt Seen!

The Barbie movie has been a huge hit, shattering box office records. As of September 6, 2023, the movie has grossed over $1.38 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing film of 2023 and the highest-grossing film ever for Warner Bros. The second highest-grossing film for Warner Bros. is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which grossed $1.341 billion.

The Barbie movie's box office success is even more impressive considering that it was met with some skepticism before its release. Some critics and fans were concerned that the movie would be too cheesy or that it would not be able to appeal to a wide audience. However, the movie has proven to be a hit with audiences of all ages. It has been praised for its humor, heart, and positive message.

The Barbie movie's success is a testament to the power of diversity and representation. The movie features a diverse cast of characters, including Margot Robbie as Barbie, Ryan Gosling as Ken, Simu Liu as Skipper, Issa Rae as President, and Hari Nef as Doctor Barbie. This diversity has resonated with audiences, who are hungry for more representation in the media.

I was especially excited to see Hari Nef as a Barbie. Nef is a transgender actress and model, and her casting is a huge win for trans representation. It's so important for young people to see themselves represented in the media, and Nef's casting is helping to break down barriers and make the world a more accepting place.

The Barbie movie is a groundbreaking film that is breaking down barriers and making the world a more accepting place. It is a film that everyone should see, and it is sure to be a classic for years to come.

We are all Barbies.

No matter our race, gender, body type, or anything else, we are all Barbies. We are all beautiful, unique, and worthy of love and acceptance. So let's celebrate our diversity and let's all be Barbies together! 💖

Acceptance without understanding. 🙏

We don't have to understand everything about each other in order to accept each other. In fact, sometimes it's better to just accept someone without trying to understand them. Because sometimes, the best way to show someone you love and support them is to simply say, "I accept you."

So let's all practice acceptance without understanding. Let's be open-minded and welcoming to everyone, no matter who they are or what they look like. Let's make the world a more accepting place for everyone, Barbies included! 👫
