    Link: Another Excellent Body Image Short Film by Dove - I know, I know, but they aren`t selling anything here and it`s worth a click...

    I really respect Dove for doing these. Woman need to know that they are beautiful and shouldn`t try to compare themselves to what the magazine industry or a small number of knucklehead guys think is attractive. Most of us like "real" women.

    There is nothing worse in this world then a person with a crushed self-esteem.

    Makeup and perfume takes lots of time, and for the most part are a waste of time.
    If ladies want to be more attractive, stop talking so much.

    I`ve found a lot of this Dove campaign to be contrived and hypocritical, but this was really great.

    I`m sure this was a powerful message to the women involved, but one has to admit that the artist was likely told what the concept was. Thus he knew he was expected to make a homely picture for the "self portrait," and a much nicer one with the group sketch.
    Still, I admit to being impressed that Dove has stuck to their original concept, and is doing things that don`t just advertise their products.

    Yes it`s interesting - an observation of female social behavior.

    That`s how women do. I have rarely met a woman who when complimented says `thank you` usually the reply is some self effacing or even bigger compliment to me in return.

    When i reply with just `thank you` to a compliment. There is ,sometime, that shortest little pause with slight narrowing of eyes (translation - well ain`t we self satisfied)
    Yes yes I am :-)

    & dove can shove it
