I got these off the 'love your body foundation' site- they may or may not be old but they are indisputably a disgrace. as the caption added by the site says, they are offensive to women. one talks about 'super skinny' in reference to hair (!!) and the other is just insulting. Rant away...

PS: Muse, I think this is a great idea. Maybe we could also post about positive advertising- the dove beauty campaign/companies promoting real beauty?

That would be a great thread as well... to give kudos where kudos are due. We can eventually use stuff from this section to build content for an easy-to-find page or section on the front of WBB.

I know that Dove ads are pretty good. Love the "real women" :clap: :clap:

I can't think of anything off the top of my head besides the old calvin klein ads that were REALLY BAD....

That comercial was disgusting.
And to think- SOMEONE somewhere thought that was a brilliant idea, and got paid a lot of money for that genious idea

The ad seems Argentine based on the comments and the poster's location. Anorexia is a huge problem there!

are you fucking kidding me?!!!? jesus. could that commercial be anymore obvious. sweet, so while their women are often dropping like dead flies they show these kind of commercials in a sexual desireable light. And think about this..not only women, girls like you and me see this....little girls too. Start em off young. great. :shock: that really pisses me off man.

This is not a bad ad in my opinion...but it's causing quite a big debate, wonder what you guys think about it...
