Dove Gets Real

leave a comment »

Unfortunately for young children watching TV today, nothing is left to the imagination.  Sex seems to sell everything from shampoo to jeans.  These messages are so blatant and “in your face” that I feel we all need to step back and come to a happy medium as a society.

I am so happy to see that Dove and their line of products embrace girls and women of all sizes and encourage them to be happy with themselves.  I hope this trend setting company will provoke the current media to make some changes.

I am a realist and am well aware that we cannot turn back the hands of time, but as a society I feel we can make a statement in what we watch and what we buy.  We can let our voices be heard by our actions and hopefully, things will begin to change so that my children will be brought up in a less sexual prevalent media environment.
