Wikipedia's a great thing, isn't it?
Barbie was made in the late 50's as sort of a "this is what women should look like" type thing. Of course this is just a media plause to get women to buy barbies and have self image problems, pouring money into all sorts of makeup etc...
Now that women are starting to be more comfortable with themselves as Barbie is being remodeled to be more "real life-like", it doesn't matter if he's calling you barbie. Besides, doesn't barbie do likeee, everything (lawyer, doctor, etc..) or is that something else I'm thinking of
