“Laverne Cox uses her voice to amplify the message of moving beyond societal expectations to live more authentically,” Mattel said, according to Breitbart.

“The foreign ministry reminds foreign representatives to be respectful of the sensitivities among Indonesians on matters relevant with their culture, religion and belief,” he said.

Good morning to everyone who finds it funny that Mattel is now making a transgender Barbie doll in Indonesia. A place where gay and transgender people have widespread discriminated & same sex marriage is illegal.
