Thank you. seriously thank you so fucking much for pointing out that ads are still trying to sell shit by making you feel bad. So many people make it about the whole "real women have curves" bullshit. All women are real women and i'm so glad that you said that.
No and like I’m a weirdo and have been scrolling through the comments and they’re all so frustrating!! “Why can’t ‘society’ still be like this?” Whether ads tell women they’re too fat or too skinny, they’re still trying to make you feel so bad about yourself so you rush out and buy their product. Have you ever seen Killing Us Softly? It’s a documentary series detailing how women are portrayed in advertising, and I highly recommend it. Consumer knowledge! xxoo
As a feminist, how do you feel about Lana Del Rey's GQ pictures (specifically the one with a man grabbing her breast and choking her). I love her music but recently it's been really hard for me to get behind her mixed messages to girls! Even the "Ride" video with her acting like a prostitute for old men!!
Haha that picture sure wasn’t my fave…I don’t get the whole choking thing, like, at all. But I mean not everyone is going to be a feminist icon! Critique what you love, and what you don’t. And prostitutes are people too!! xxoo
