1. They said I didn'tdress for my age

Well fuck that. You are only as old as you feel.

They said I didn't dress for my weight. Well, that is only because attractive clothing for large sized women are not available in my town.

I will not dress for my age or my weight, as the only options for that in my small Walmart town are ugly ugly ugly. and super ugly.

I refuse to wear ugly old lady clothes. I am still trying to get a sewing machine so I can make my own styles. I know how to sew and I can design clothing, and there is no need for women to settle for old , ugly clothes, or fat ugly clothes.

We need a revolution.

3. But soap can age your skin

 

I dont use soap anymore because it messes up your skin's natural microfauna balance. I only use it to wash my hands.

4. I seriously hate shit like this

Why is beauty a question? Why are there no men in this ad? This seriously sucks big time - don't get taken in. Re-evaluate beauty - it's a concept - it has been attached to angels if you wanna believe in god. It is attached to power if you want to believe in superficiality. It is attached to fucking if you want to just move on with no connection to the earth or family or respect.

This is bullshit!!!

Edit

When you were a child did you think 'beautiful' or 'wonderous'?

Beauty is a contrived time sucking whore

Dove is playing on your insecurity

Yup, I seriously hate this shit.

When did you first hear that beauty was a thing to strive for? Now this corporation tells you - oh, beauty doesn't matter. So, what is the point of it? Are they sending you off on a one week retreat to centre yourself? Are they going to feed your children for a lifetime so you can focus on teaching them love and wonder? Fuck Dove.

5. They're still selling beauty products right?

It's a good message I guess. We shouldn't care what someone else thinks of us.
