Barbie is 2014 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model

Sports Illustrated is celebrating its 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue with Barbie.

The cover line?

"The Doll that Started it All."

Sports Illustrated's choice has spark outrage among some bloggers.

One mommy blog has this headline, "The Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Will Feature Barbie, So Your Daughter Can Feel Bad Too."

"Now when you find your husband gazingly adoringly at next week’s Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, you can be thrilled to know your daughter can also feel just as insecure as you do – because the issue will feature Barbie as well. Not that she is also an example of super unrealistic beauty standards or anything."
