Wrong Examples.......



I think these dolls do give wrong examples.....there is so much on girls these days to be "cool" and "pretty" and look good, you see it every where.....the one that I saw on TV...and I love the company "DOVE" for this is that they have a campaign going for girls just to be them selves, love your selves the way you are, they way you were born, be confident in who you are and not worry about what your not!!

Take the kids shopping for clothes when they were younger, and in high school...and the clothes were not cool enough, or did not look good enough, they want to look like these daolls, or the other kids at school. It puts the wrong ideas in their heads!! we are not made to be picture perfect, or perfect in general, nothing is, and we should not be pumping it isnot our kids heads!!

It goes back on that women feel they have to look good to be accepted, perfect make up, hair and all that stuff, just to be accepted...society has put too much preassure on girl and women to look good, that is the way?! and with these dolls...put that in the hands of some poor young girl who feels she is ugly, not a good thing, read a comment that guys play with GI Joes, and they do not joiun the millitary...well it is not the same thing for a woman. We have to look good...I did a test...one day I went to our pub and mall, two very busy places here where I live, I was with my Gf, who is beautiful...she did the make up thing, and i did no make up, no fixing up the hair....barely anyone looked at me but her...the next day we did the same thing, this time I was done up as my usaul self, hair make up, and the responses were so different.

i give credit to the DOVE commercials for doibg that campaign for the girls to love them selves as they are, and not worry about being all make up and beautiful, accept your self without all of that stuff and what society pushes!!

It astonishes me how much women spend on makeup. casmetics and clothes. Maybe it goes back to Barbie.

it is different with the girls...there is so much on being pretty and popular clothing and all of that,
