Conflicting Messages in Advertising to Women

Shocking, I know. Via the Society Pages, we have this advertisement:

So women - you can use chocolate to overcome romantic disappointment (or perhaps even as a love substitute) today by "devour[ing] that pan of chocolaty goodness," but just be sure to stay thin - "diet starts tomorrow" - otherwise you could be lonely and single forever.

Got it?


  1. im conflicted!
    onthe one hand i think its cute and clever..on the know how complicated womens relationships with the media can be...but does it mean we cant laugh at/with ourselves??
