Ok, granted, it’s 5:46 p.m. (not morning) and I’m not sure I know anyone who would call Barbie a superhero…but my husband is (JM.)

Here’s how it went down–

Olivia: “I want this one.”

Jesse: “Sure Olivia. She’ll marry a doctor. She’ll live in a big house. She’ll wear a huge rock on her finger. She’ll drive a nice Mercedes. But his eye will wander. He’ll start dating nurses. She’ll become an alcoholic and get addicted to antidepressants. And all because she settled for being a trophy wife and refused to grow. She refused to work on developing her own identity.  Are you sure this is what you want?”

That’s what 14 years sobriety (JM’s sobriety) and gender class will get you.  A new perspective and the power to articulate it!
