Barbie: I Can be a Computer Engineer is a children's picture book published in 2010. It portrays Barbie (the popular doll) as an incompetant computer engineer who cannot program and who spreads viruses.

In November 2014, Pamela Ribbon discovered the book at a friend's house and published the text of the book with commentary to make fun of its sexism and essentialism.

“Your robot puppy is so sweet,” says Skipper. “Can I play your game?”
“I’m only creating the design ideas,” Barbie says, laughing. “I’ll need Steven and Brian’s help to turn it into a real game!”
What the fucking shit, Barbie?

Mattel stated in response that they had "reworked their Barbie books" since 2010.
