    (1) Bra, really? Thank God, I don’t need one — but it’s good for large breasts, makes it more comfortable for “gifted” ladies to carry their gifts around…

    (2) Unfortunately, for those having to raise kids, esp. girls, eradicating those false messages that the media & society shower them with from a very tender age takes up time & energy that could be so much more constructively used!

    (3) What I see as most tragic (indeed!), is that obsession and anxiety of girls & women about their appearance, leading them to distort their nature with implants — everywhere: from boobs to lips to “anti-ageing” injections to sucking fat through medical procedures. Our culture is contradicting itself: wanting to teach self-confidence (a must-have for succeeding in life), while allowing the media to bombard women with insecurity about their image…

    Hi Helene, apparently you are the bravest girl around, at this date, over a thousand people have read this article, and you’re the only person that has been brave enough to comment. Kudos to you!

    I couldn’t agree more. The industry FEEDS on the vanity and insecurity of women–and brainwashes them from childhood. The ‘fashion’ industry dictates what shall be ‘in style’ but clearly lacks ethics, they are insulting and abusive in the attempt to turn ever-increasing profit. Genuine concern for women’s health is non-existent in the fashion industry. “Surgical correction” is “mandatory”. Bigger busts are “necessary”. Dignity is non-existent; and unfortunately–overall, there are few, if any boundaries of decency remaining in fashion. The promotion of ‘products’ from chemical-loaded deodorants, skin-killing makeup to ‘hair management’ and outrageously overpriced “skin creams” offers no concern or acceptance of responsibility for the proliferation chemically-induced cancers and other health problems. Unbelievable isn’t it. The ‘fashion industry’ is out of control–women seriously need to think for themselves and decide what’s suitable and best for THEM. The culture is indeed contradictory and destroying itself.
    Helene, thanks again, thank you so much for commenting “:) ~R
