I recently came across this image on Facebook, with the description “This was an ad made by bodyshop. But Barbie INC. found out about it and now it’s banned. Repost if you think this ad deserves to be seen.”.
Welll…..I sort of take issue with that.
I’d rather let Barbie be who she wants to be and raise my child not to give a fuck about such things, but whatever.
Furthermore, Barbie are quite blatant about what they sell – the dolls have always been unashamedly fetishistic. The Body Shop? I think they stopped being what they claimed to stand for a long time ago, and this is a shade of high-horse deception I cannot stand. I’m pretty sure that The Body Shop got their facts wrong here – just how they claim to be against animal testing but are owned by a company who enjoy raping the eyeballs of bunnies for the hell of it.
And call me crazy, but I’m just the sort of person who would rather care about the quality of a creature’s wellbeing than the fragile ego of the sort of insane graziaheatcherylcolelouboutinprimark woman 98% of females are (my figures are as accurate as The Body Shop’s).
I suppose I sort of look like the woman in the poster. But this poster certainly does NOT represent me or my beliefs. Not in any shape or form.
