MISS BIMBO!!! WTF MOMENT!

pic from thesun.co.uk
I am sorry but usually I am all for games online that girls love but this one is just crazy! What is the name of the site you may ask? It is called MISS BIMBO! (NOT BIM BOH) but BIM BO. Guess what over 200000 registered users ages 9-16! Well, here is how it works.

Miss Bimbo, is described by its creator who happens to be a French entrepreneur as a fashion game. The site current attracts children as young as 9 years old.

It encourages children to join its site to create a virtual doll, monitor its diet and weight and buy it breast implants and face lifts. What kind of a world are we living in you may ask? Well there is more, the kids sign up for free and the automatically receive 1000 dollars to buy clothing and of course "facelifts etc

When you run out of money however, you have to send a text message costing $3 dollars to get more dollars or mula as it is called on the site.

According to CNN " Users are given missions, including securing plastic surgery at the game's clinic to give their dolls bigger breasts, and they have to keep her at her target weight with diet pills, which cost 100 bimbo dollars.

Breast implants sell at 11,500 bimbo dollars and net the buyer 2,000 bimbo attitudes, making her more popular on the site.

And bagging a billionaire boyfriend is the most desirable way to earn the all important "mula" or bimbo dollars."

What do you say readers? Girls already have self esteem problems, now to encourage this as young as 9 years old and who pays to top up the account? Would you let your daughter play the game?

Unfortunately I can't say that I am shocked...the world at large has been subtly telling women that their value lies mostly in their physical appearance and sexual appeal. Some societies emphasize it more than others...as a woman I am appalled and as a mother I am even more motivated to make sure that my daughter recognizes that she is a whole person, made up of many different gifts and her worth is not dependent on attracting a male, much less a billionare bobo...I guess that's part of what made write my book - the mrs club. BTW Naijagal...well done, I am a frequent visitor to your site. Kudos to you for showing us again that we are all more than Bimbos...
