Ker_Thwap: This campaign seems to be run by a group of women, who aren't selling anything at least.  It's a bit of a shame they don't include a few men as well.  I'm always a little bit horrified to learn that the modern generation of young men can be equally sensitive and suckers to skin deep beauty concerns as well.

Oh, it's well cool, like.... just not *HE-MAN!* cool.

I think we can all agree that HE-MAN's sword is an item of supreme coolness to be held in awe by all whose gaze is blessed to catch even the slightest of glimpses of, no? I mean, who hasn't woken to snail-trails after dreaming about holding that perfectly heavy hilt in both hands, heaving it around, thrusting mightily into your enemies skull, right to the hilt, then mopping it off on their bloodsoaked shirt.

No shiat.  If the objective was to show how self-conscious women are, mission accomplished.

You can't be victimized if you don't make yourself a victim

It's funny how you guys never post this shiat when it's about soldiers with PTSD, or people who are mugged or killed.

It's almost as if you guys want to restrict the term "victim" to just those things that could potentially happen to *you*.

I was teased mercilessly as a child for being without a natural family, for being geeky, for being physically different.  I didn't let it define me.  Today I'm happy, successful, and have a fairly decent life.  I didn't sit around blaming the world for how they saw me.  I took the initiative to improve myself and overcome the challenges presented to me.  I am a far better person for it than if I had just said "accept me for who I am!"  Life is all about growth.  If you stagnate, you lose the right to complain about your lot.

By the way, today I don't think I'm better than anyone else.  My opinion is that if a socially awkward, damaged, ugly, naive little geek could turn his (my) life around, anyone can do it.  Because I have just as much capacity to do it as anyone.  It's hard, but you get no sympathy from me if you don't try.

Lastly, if you compare victims of violent trauma to not giving a crap what people think about you, you may want to seriously reconsider your perspective on life.

So because you managed to be successful despite other people's unfair criticisms of you, no one should ever try to show people a better way to interact with each other or point out that, although most people are able to push through the crap it makes life worse for people who don't deserve it and can hurt some who are not as strong?

It's great that you made it, but there's no reason we can't work towards a ...


How about one poster, with big bold letters that say "Other people's opinions do not define you. Now shut the fark up and get on with your life"? 

Short and to the point, and it works for everybody. Somebody thinks you're too fat? Fark 'em. Somebody thinks you're too skinny? Fark 'em. Who the hell needs approval so badly they'll make a poster to beg for it?

That one is funny because people with Down's don't have object permanence. So when you play peekaboo with them, they think you have actually become invisible.

tiamet4: This would be true and reasonable if we didn't classify perfectly normal-sized women as "plus-sized models" or artificially enhance images of even models and movie stars to remove any "unsightly" lumps or bulges, sometimes even making them look significantly smaller than they are.  This would be true and reasonable if everyone who was overweight "sat around for hours eating cake", which most don't.  The fact that that's what you think about when you see an overweight person kind of indicates you've bought into what this ad campaign is trying to fight.  Plenty of (women and man) are happy and active and make great partners and still don't meet society's standard of "beauty" and are looked down on because of it and it's easy to justify looking down on them by claiming that you know they're wrong inside somehow, but you can't know that anymore than you can tell an underweight person is anorexic


You sound fat.

There is an older woman who writes mystery novels where she goes on about this quite a bit. I read one of them once when I had nothing better to read. Her thing is that since older women are invisible, she and her trusty sidekick (also an older woman) can go out and snoop and spy on all kinds of things, and no one will pay any attention to them. So they can solve murders because no one even gives them a second thought.

Apparently there's a whole series based on this. I thought it was a pretty amusing idea, since I'm getting to that age myself. Let's just say that I'm glad I"m not short.

dready zim: Fat people have issues. That is why they are fat. People with issues make less good partners, it`s that simple. Like a racist tattoo on the forehead, your body image is altered by what your mind thinks (because that dictates what your body does, which in turn affects how it looks) and can be an indicator for your internal mental state. People aren`t judging you because of the fat but more on what the fat says about your internal mental state.

I was mortified when my 4-year-old son began asking loudly, "Where did pretty lady go? Where did pretty lady go?" after a house guest's wife went outside for a run.

Me: "Well, that's embarrassing. My 4-year-son is hitting on your wife."

Mark: "No bid deal. She gets hit on by boys that age all the time."

/ So yes, that ad campaign is going to change 80,000 years of hard-wired primal attraction to peak human nubility, fitness, and fertility.

I fully defend the right of women to be obese and see themselves as beautiful. It`s good to be confident, life will walk all over you if you are not.

I also fully defend MY right to not see fat people as beautiful or sexy and to say `nope nope nope` and my right to not lie.

This is not oppression, this is me finding the sight and feeling of fat disgusting and the polar opposite of sexy.

I find fat on myself unsexy and so does my other half.

I`m sure people who are fat are beautiful on the inside, not bitter twisted self stimulators who can`t put down the cake.

I`d like some tone to my sexual partner. I don`t find sliding into the folds of a warm half filled water balloon sexy.

Having been fat and not fat I can simply remember what it was like instead of imagining a situation I have not been in. I also know what is needed to go from fat to not fat and back again.

Fat people have issues. That is why they are fat. People with issues make less good partners, it`s that simple. Like a racist tattoo on the forehead, your body image is altered by what your mind thinks (because that dictates what your body does, which in turn affects how it looks) and can be an indicator for your internal mental state. People aren`t judging you because of the fat but more on what the fat says about your internal mental state. In the case of the person with downs it says "I have downs" which also eliminates them from people I am considering for a sexual or bridge partner.

Happy people just don`t have the time to sit around for hours eating cake. They are too busy having a good time.

Also Beauty is a Lie

superdude72: Because they need you to click on the pictures for their viral marketing campaign to succeed, none of the models is more than 1/2 a standard deviation away from the attractiveness of the average fashion model. This is still about selling fashion, after all.


It would be a lot more convincing if they got some pictures from the People of Walmart site and commented positively on them.  It's a lot easier to sell empathy towards clean, well presented people, who are well photographed in a visually striking environment.

People pushing tolerance always stop short of tolerating "those people."  I want to see a Coexist bumper sticker with a Walmart symbol on it.

I'm old, often unshaven, bald, with glasses, a bit overweight and dress in ratty t shirts most of the time.  I can assure you all my beauty is on the inside at this point.  By focusing on what's external, I think this campaign is doomed to fail.
