Growing up, there were two types of dolls—American Girl dolls and Barbie dolls. The American Girls resembled real girls. They looked my age and had accessories, like eye-glasses and four-poster beds.

This is where Barbie came in. And there were Kens.
Lots of them. Barbie literally changed the way I played with dolls. I could switch from having tea with the American Girls to a Barbie and Ken bang session—all in one afternoon. I could have played Barbies in private to avoid the charade, but I preferred to play in the living room.
In our family of six, the living room had all the action. My siblings, who are normal, sometimes opted to play alone in their rooms.
Melissa was especially good at locking out family— me in particular. I hated being left out and desperately wanted to know what Melissa was doing in there.
Barbie and ken naked
Shoulder bruised, but high on adrenaline, I scanned my surroundings. In front of her was Ken, lying naked on top of Barbie in the four-poster bed.
An American Girl doll lay by the wayside. As quickly as I arrived, Melissa threw me out, slamming the door behind me. We spent the reminder of our childhood pretending The Incident never happened.
