I am so sad.
Dora the Explorer, the wonderful, bilingual, adventurous positive role model on Nickelodeon is getting a makeover. That's right. This is what our world has come to. According to ParentDish:
The new Dora, who will be revealed in the fall, lives in the big city and goes to middle school. She still solves mysteries but she's abandoned outdoor adventure for shopping, jewelry and fashion.
No. No no no no no. How can they possibly makeover the one rare positive role model for young girls and turn her into some sexualized superficial tween who does nothing but promote negative stereotypes? NOT OKAY. To object to this, please sign this online petition.
