They seem to put adds of lovely, curvy women who don't need to lose weight talking about how ugly their bodies are.

The pink patch diet with the skinny minnie girls at the top of the page. That angers me a lot. Hehe. And it is says 'get skinny!' Argh!

Shouldn't they say,
'look gorgeous with curves?'

the pink patch advert.

The Magic That Makes You Skinny

I put up a post on slashdot recently that sums up why this type of shit happens, thought it might be worth posting here:

The list of things people need is short. The infrastructure needed to supply the peoples are all owned already. The people who own everything you need don't need anything from you. So, how do you get what you need from those that own it and survive when they don't need anything from you?

You give them things they don't need, like sports cars, recorded music and blowjobs, and hope they'll take care of you, like a pet.

You have no choice, because property is all about "I got here first, I stuck a flag in it, and you can't have any", and everything has already been claimed.

"Dance prettily little whore, and I'll give you a condo. Unless you'd rather wander the streets. You want dignity? Right. If you were deserving of dignity, you would be trying to kill me for the position I've put you in instead of dolling yourself up with fancy clothes and educational degrees. Go make me fanciful inventions and pretty things before I grow bored with you."

That is the nature of this society.

This is why these adverts exist. To make people unhappy with what they are, so they will buy things they don't need.

But beyond that, the system is gamed in a fashion where people are pushed to do this type of thing if they wish to survive at all. The only way to put a stop to it is a revolution.
