OK, now it can be told… All you people out there working in advertising are causing severe mental health problems in young girls. No, I’m not talking about the poor young ladies unfortunate enough to have suffered through an internship at Draft/FCB… This is from a psychologist who has spoken out against the insidious nature of fashion, pornography and diet & alcohol advertisements in stoking a rise in the incidence of mental health problems amongst girls. As he puts it, “Never before has girlhood been under such a sustained assault, ranging through everything from diet ads, alcohol marketing and fashion pressures, to the inroads of hard pornography into teenage bedrooms." Fuck me, that’s pretty hard, reminds me of Dr. Dichter, who I wrote about in “The Ubiquitous Persuaders.” He’s the guy that said women smoking in cigarette ads should hold their fags erect, ‘cos it reminded them of a penis. He also had Mattel make Barbie’s tits bigger and pointier… A weird old fucker indeed. Anyway, stop peddling porn to all those pre-teens, get back to flogging shit to adults.
