Barbie is Innocent!: I guess we can all sleep a little easier now we know Barbie was not in fact promoting bisexuality or encouraging support for the transgendered agenda.

"'This was just an innocent oversight,' says Lauren Bruksch, a spokeswoman for Mattel. As a rule of thumb, Bruksch said, the questionnaires at barbie.com always try to have a neutral answer or nonresponse option. For gender, this third option should have been 'I don't want to say,' rather than 'I don't know.' The Web site has since been fixed."
