Change Research decided to dive deep into this captivating phenomenon by surveying over 1,000 individuals aged 18 to 34. They wanted to know what raised red flags when it came to potential partners. The results were a rollercoaster of insights, but the real shocker was how many women found it utterly cringeworthy if their date refused to watch the Barbie movie.

A jaw-dropping 53 percent of women considered it a major red flag if their potential partner turned down a viewing of the Greta Gerwig-directed flick. Gentlemen, it seems like this is less of an issue for you, with only 31 percent of guys giving it a thumbs-down.

For women, though, the biggest “ick” came from a partner identifying as a MAGA Republican (76 percent), closely followed by having no hobbies (66 percent), and shouting “All Lives Matter” from the rooftops (60 percent). Other concerns included denying the existence of more than two genders (58 percent), being a conversation dud (58 percent), being a communist (55 percent), or being a Joe Rogan podcast enthusiast (55 percent).

Men, on the other hand, danced to a different beat. Their top “ick” factor was a partner identifying as a communist (64 percent), followed by having no hobbies (60 percent), proudly flaunting the MAGA Republican badge (59 percent), being a conversation wallflower (42 percent), or obsessing over astrology (41 percent).

But here’s the kicker: the Barbie movie red flag is no new concept. It seems that several savvy ladies have already been applying this litmus test to their relationships. Some brave souls on TikTok have been vocal about their convictions. One user simply said, “Take your boyfriend to Barbie; if he doesn’t get it…dump him.”
