Blatantly Sexist Advertising
The ad reads “You know you’re not the first. But do you really care?” This ad naturally has many problems, besides the fact that it only speaks to half of their consumers.

Women’s insecurities can sometimes get the better of them as women often don’t feel good enough, or perfect enough. However, the truth is that beauty comes from being self-aware, secure and unique. In fact, “perfect” and fake beauty is quite boring, because the lack of unique individual qualities objectifies and dehumanizes you. From a systems point of view, Heidi appears to be a victim of the many mixed messages that women in westernized societies have to deal with about their body and image.
