Messages in the new Barbie movie include woke and liberal ideas that undermine the family, deceive our youth, promote alternative lifestyles, and bring a worldview that is anything but Biblical to the next generation of movie-goers. If you're considering seeing this on the big screen, here are 5 reasons to reconsider.
1 Hardcore feminism
"The movie’s feminist viewpoint attacks the “patriarchy,” a socialist myth that men have all or most of the power and women have little to no say in how things are run, even in modern times. The movie also attacks the idea that little girls should be taught to desire motherhood," writes MovieGuide.
The review by MovieGuide warns viewers of the subtle messaging in the film and suggests caution in viewing the movie.
"Stereotypical Barbie doesn’t want to be with Ken, or any other Ken for that matter. In fact, at one point in the movie, she advises Ken that, like her, he should not be dependent on any one person or any one thing but simply just be himself. This message is not only political, it’s also a Romantic (or humanist) and godless philosophical, psychological message that women and men should be independent, totally self-determining beings."
2 Painting men as the “problem” in society
The other theme the movie pushes is an attack on men and a "patriarchy" viewpoint. MovieGuide shares, "The movie’s feminist viewpoint attacks the “patriarchy,” a socialist myth that men have all or most of the power and women have little to no say in how things are run, even in modern times."
3 Hate of the patriarchal society
“Barbie has to leave because she’s not adapting to … this hate of the patriarchal society, although she hates Ken,” shared MovieGuide founder Dr. Ted Baehr with Faithwire. “Men are the villain," Baehr shares.
4 Attack on women
Men are playing women in the movie as trans-Barbies. According to MovieGuide, "The movie also attacks the idea that little girls should be taught to desire motherhood. Thus, it implicitly attacks the biblical system of the family established by God in Chapters One and Two of Genesis and confirmed by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in Matthew 19:1-12."
5 “Extremely overt” LGBTQ+
BARBIE contains some suggestive language, referencing two homosexual men admiring Ken’s handsome looks. Also, two angry Ken characters challenge one another to “beach you off.”
