In the game, you do what it takes; be it boob jobs, taking diet pills, dating a rich boyfriend to become the most famous and beautiful bimbo in the ‘world’.
Users of “Miss Bimbo” as young as eight create their own virtual bimbo characters, dress them up, groom them, buy her clothes, get her to places and to the extent of navigating them right onto a plastic surgeon’s operating table for boob jobs in order to reach the ultimate goal of becoming a famous bimbo.
The game which has so far attracted more than 200,000 users distort girls mind; creating false image of what is attractive and sexy.
Leslie Goldman, the American author of “Locker Room Diaries: The Naked Truth About Women, Body Image” slammed the game citing disgust over the ugly message that the game tries to send; that it is cool to get boob jobs, date a rich boyfriend and being that could make a girl become somewhat an attractive, happy and sexy woman.
Groups in UK share Goldman’s concern express apprehension over the bad image that “Miss Bimbo” is promoting. This is like adding another nail into the coffin for effort to help young girls who are already struggling with their body image and self-esteem.
“It’s a virtual reality fashion game,” they say but where money is concerned (the site makes money through users paying for the ‘Bimbo Money’ in order to pay for their diet pills, gym membership, etc) this game is not just a game.
When girls start investing in these even by spending a mere $3 on text message to purchase the ‘Bimbo Money’, it builds up its desire to buy more and eventually becomes an addiction to this game or even worse to have it portrayed in real life later on.
Well unless you’re already a bimbo and have no qualms about portraying your true self in the game, else don’t even learn to be one.
