"real" beauty lies with capitalism?

Not to be trusted

Dove's latest campaign seems a lot like the American Beverage Association's (www.ameribev.org)investment of "millions of dollars in physical fitness initiatives to encourage people to be more active" and Phillip Morris's anti-smoking campaign. I would applaud the effort on the part of other groups, but I just can't trust this.

Their priority is still to sell products, and if we women are happy with our bodies, we won't spend money to fix them.

Incidentally, Unilever, Dove's parent company, also owns Slim Fast. There's a disconnect between that and the "real women have curves" campaign that doesn't sit well with me.
