Quote of the Day

If you've been hiding out under a rock you may be unaware that Dove is like really into making women feel beautiful. All kinds of women--old women, young women, fat women, scary skinny women, women with freckles, black women, and women with three breasts.

I'm all for self-esteem. I'm all for motivation. I've even considered purchasing a copy of The Feminine Mystique at the book store before. However, today's Quote of the Day comes from a blog that Dove runs, and is being posted here to say that they've crossed my invisible line of silliness:
"FAT is not a feeling!"
Whatever, crazy lady. I started my period yesterday (with the coinciding bloating) and I feel fat. I know I'm not any heavier than I was the day before (assuming I didn't pack on too many pounds from the Turtle Sundae I had after church last night), but my clothes fit tighter than the previous day because of retained water.

I feel fat! Feminism be damned, but I have feelings!

Dove and Axe Men = same company. Dove's whole make women feel pretty campaign seems totally tainted after I learned that. Because the Axe Men ads make me feel so hot...false.

Seriously?!? Dove is such a sham.
