Executive Vice President and Global Head of Barbie and Dolls at Mattel Lisa McKnight said in a statement, “We are proud to highlight the importance of inclusion and acceptance at every age and to recognize Laverne’s significant impact on culture with a Tribute Collection Barbie” by releasing a Tribute Barbie of transgender actor Laverne Cox.

Cox, an Emmy Nominated Actress and Emmy winning producer, is a biological male who identifies as a woman. People¬†reported Cox was “very involved” in designing the doll.

“What excites me most about her being out in the world is that trans young people can see her and maybe get to purchase her and play with her, and know that there’s a Barbie made by Mattel, for the first time, in the likeness of a trans person,” Cox said, according to People. Cox also said, “That in this environment where trans kids are being attacked … this can also be a celebration of transness, and also a space for them to dream, understand and be reminded that trans is beautiful.”

“I was like, ‘Can we make her look more like me? And more African American?'” Cox said. “And we had a conversation about highlights and lowlights because I’m blonde most of the time now, but I’m a Black girl, so I need a dark root. And we had a whole conversation about how they can’t do that, but they could do dark low lights.”

“I begged my mother for a Barbie doll and she said no because I was assigned male at birth,” Cox said. “And when I was in my 30s, I was in therapy and telling my therapist that I was denied the opportunity to play with Barbie dolls. And my therapist said, ‘It’s never too late to have a happy childhood, and what you should do for your inner child is go out and buy yourself a Barbie doll.'”

“I played with my Barbie, and I told my mom what my therapist had said. And that first Christmas after that, my mom sent me a Barbie doll,” Cox said. “And she’s been sending me Barbies for Christmas and for my birthday.”

    He really needs to have his marbles examined! They are not all operating the way they should be. GOD only made two sexes—male or female! I am tired of hearing about people wanting to be something they were not born as!

Sara Carter went directly to the streets of New York City to talk to parents about how the migrant crisis is affecting the education of their children in the schools of the big apple. Exclusive to ‘Hannity’ Carter spoke with several parents.

The schools are already struggling, said one concerned father. The migrant crisis and thousands of families with children attempting to get education, combined with the city’s resources being cut across the board in combination with redistributing resources to fight the consequences that come with the migrant influx.

Children are already being faced with catching up from the learning losses during covid, the father continued. Nationally, students are grades behind where they should be due to covid-19 protocols such as quarantining for days and work from home curriculum. Now, adding the thousands of migrant children will create even more of a strain said the father.

We need to stop creating a fantasy world that everyone can come here, stated another concerned parent.
