I'm getting new business ideas though.
I actually want to see Atheist Barbie on the shelves.

Interesting concept, Atheist Barbie. What could they do with Barbie to indicate that she is an atheist? There aren't any particular atheist fashions or hair styles, how would they depict non belief in a doll? The especially intelligent look on her face? A shirt with a picture of Jesus with a circle/slash?

Beyond Barbie, the idea of atheist as an adjective designating specific things or places for atheists, is a tough sell. The Atheist Cafe? The Atheist Cruise? The Young Atheists Activity League? The Atheists Day Parade?

The theists are so much better organized.

With the exception of the t-shirt which contains writing, there isn't anything there which would cause someone to conclude that this was atheist Barbie. Explanations were needed for everything else and they were stretches, like citing her laptop bag, which looks like any other laptop bag, as one for toting atheist materials.
