HIDDEN CLASSIC - BEHIND THE VEIL


Ms magazine is asking readers what they think about this ad for Reebok. Does it glamorize the restrictions placed on women living under extremist Islamic regimes? Or is it trying to turn a spiritual decision, whether or not to cover, into a "come-hither" consumerist moment? Or does it show an image of Islamic women as strong and self-confident? 

In a related story in the 8/01 issue of Mother Jones called "Behind the Veil", said "Westerners see Iran's mandatory veil as a symbol of repression. But under cover of the hejab, Islamic women have gained more freedom than they - or the fundamentalists - could have imagined." What do you think? Ms, Comments Please, 20 Exchange Place, 22nd Floor, New York, NY 10005.

The seven secrets: Confidence rules. Envy is a waste of time. Friends and family like you for who you are, not your size. Healthy habits rock. Harness the power of positive thinking. Think like a guy. Don't compare yourself to others...especially celebrities (though earlier they trashed Calista Flockhart calling her a "scary stick"). Then it's back to the original premise with articles highlighting physical beauty and clothes high lighting breasts. (Check out Cool Dad and A Touchy Subject.)


JIM BEAM'S ONE TRACK MIND


Jim Beam whiskey continues its ads demeaning men. All three ran this month. The first ad shows four men, three of them looking at each other and the fourth guy looking at what looks like a stripper on a pole with the line "Who says men don't like dancing? Real friends. Real bourbon." The second ad shows the same photo run in Australia as "If the chicks ask, we're watching the footy." The third ad is a birthday party with a woman coming out of a giant cake. The headline reads "A picture is worth a thousand words, and these guys will deny every single one. Real friends. Real bourbon." So, the Jim Beam good old boys like drinking', strippers, and being deceitful. Come to think of it, they may be right.

WHAT IF CIGARETTE ADS TOLD THE TRUTH?


It takes a great imagination to create cigarette advertising. Philip Morris are experts at it. Like using their charity work to get their cigarette image back on television and pretending cigarettes have nothing to do with over 1,200 deaths a day. MORE This mimic of Marlboro ads appeared in the 2/01 issue of Stance magazine for young men. There's a body bag over the trailing horse and the Surgeon General's box noting "Yee Haw! You too can be an independent. rugged, macho-looking dead guy."  16 mg of cancer-causin' tar, 200 mg of false self-confidence, 2500 mg of "Giddy-up, nobody gonna tell me what to do!"  www.thetruth.com/main.cfm?flash=no
