"Barbie Savior:" amazing parody of evangelical missionaries on social media

Had to share this fake instagram account parodying Christian missionaries in Africa — totally hilarious. Some quotes feel like they were lifted directly from evangelical missionaries' instagrams.

I picture Jessa, painting those little girls fingernails on a mission trip.  The picture of Barbie with a cup of coffee looks like Jessa.  

Who knew they had coffee in Africa?

I wonder if this is the same person who did Socality Barbie because that was brilliant.

This is hilarious. 

Voluntourism is a huge pet peeve of mine and I can go on about it for a long time, so I'm kind of glad I'm on my phone right now and not able to go on for ages! 

I'll just say that I hope this makes more people think about this kind of tourism. It's particularly common among Christians, but is certainly not limited to religious people.

Raquel was the first thing that came to my mind! This one especially. She is always posting stuff about longing for her "home" in Peru and to hold in her arms her orphan "best friends".

Okay, I am way late to the party, but I just saw this and it is HILARIOUS. It also reminds me waaay to much of my sister-in-law, who once went to South Africa for two weeks, cuddled some Poor Black OrphansTM, posted a gazillion pictures of this on Facebook and has been going on about how she is homesick for South Africa ever since.

ETA: Just wanted to mention that she is not religious at all, so no Christian element there. Just that secular white savior complex for ya.

Perfect description.  I have an "acquaintance" from HS on my FB feed that recently spent quite a long stint in Africa with a Peace Corps type position.  Honestly, I found her pics and selfies rather interesting and inspiring for a while, until she went on what seemed to be a fairly expensive "tour" of dozens of other super-popular African/Middle Eastern destinations prior to returning to the US, which I doubt was on her dime.  Now she's back  living a typical white-privileged life and I see all her "brothers and sisters" in Africa commenting on her posts.  While their comment are fairly ambiguous, I wonder how they really feel.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!
