The Misplaced Priorities of Decadent Feminism

There's something called "SPARK a Movement" that's
collaborating with hundreds of girls 13-22 and more than 60 national organizations to reject the commodified, sexualized images of girls in media and support the development of girls' healthy sexuality and self-esteem.
To that end it is objecting to LEGO for girls, because the chick figure in these sets has budding breasts and lush (albeit plastic) hair, and therefore commodifies, sexualizes, etc.

Would that these foolish feminists were more concerned about the sexualization of, say, child brides in Saudi Arabia and Iran, or the de-sexualization of girls via clitorectomies, gender segegation and sharia fun sacks.
