This is real shit right here
Dove has always been good at promoting body-image positivity, but they’ve got a new ad. Every time I go to the cinema I get to watch this magnificence in the pre-movie trailers and every time the entire audience gasps. Just watch it ok?
Placebo for the win!
I LOVE THIS!
Four for you Dove!The amount of self-loathing we internalize based upon physical differences is astounding. We’re taught to hate ourselves because we look a particular way, when we should be loving our differences instead. Good job Dove.
This is absolutely disgusting! Instead of spending that money to help homeless people, you know some of the weakest members of our society who need the protection the most, they’re installing fucking spikes!? (That btw, you paid for.) And you have to pay to sit on a fucking bench? I’m guessing that money will also go to another horrible idea… I would almost get a load of old couches and dump them everywhere those stupid spikes are.
The thing is, we could solve the homelessness problem, but no, no, we have to terrorize them because showing compassion would only be humane and that is something humanity outgrew ages ago.
Frutera en Richmond. September 18, 2013. Richmond, CA.
La Señora Que Vende Fruta. La Frutera. La Señora con el Carrito. La Señora.
They are many different names people call out to Juana Raquel as she pushes her green wooden home built cart throughout the Central Richmond neighborhoods. Children pull back peach colored curtains and wave from second story apartments for Juana to stop at their apartments. Regular customers greet Juana in a friendly manner and ask about her day; and construction workers, off break, choose the nice cold raspado, flavored fruit syrup poured over shaved ice- to cool down. Juana Raquel is a frutera, a food and fruit vendor. Her cart, sturdy, compact and maneuverable on two rubber wheels holds what she needs for a day’s worth of sales: Underneath piles of ice lies bags of cucumber, mango, watermelon and jicama. On the counter of the cart, Juana has two coolers, one for the block of ice she scrapes and the other for boiled corn. Chile powder; chamoy, and vanilla, strawberry and bubblegum syrup are at Juana’s disposal. Inside the hollowed cart are bags filled generously with fried puffy chips.
