    Question: do you ever see women in the media working hard, being successful & funky and not dressed up? I can only think of the lady gardener (Dimmock?). Also look at films; when do you see strong, friking cool women who aren't dressed up as sex objects? Rare isn't it?

    I don't blame the media much (I blame other women) but still, its annoying.

    Someone sort it out please.
    :ditto: I was flipping through Elle today and was thinking...when has there ever been a fashion magazine that is made up solely of just normal people (no models, "celebs" etc.)..it would be interesting to see that happen.

    Ah that reminds me of those Dove campaign for real beauty ads; I see those and feel comfy, but obviously what advertising company would rather make their potential customers feel comfortable with themselves if it means they'll never buy their beauty-enhancing products?

    Did anyone see Extreme on Living Tv2 yesterday?
    YES! I was so shocked at the life expectancies of these celebs.

    Victoria Beckham was given 22 years to live if she continues as she is. That's awful! I'm not happy with my body and the way I look but I must be a lot healthier than people like her and Nicole Richie.

    Blimey, never did anything like that at my school! I suppose they only do that sort of thing in mixed schools.
    Tsk! I'm shocked! :p:

    No, my school is an all girls school anyway..
