Hi Everyone! I have been reading your entries for a while now and decided to join.

I am currently working on my dissertation, which is about how socio-cultural influences affect people's lives in today's capitalist society. Within this concept, the idea of "brainwash society" will be explored.

Predominantly, I want to look at western consumerist culture's obsession with the female body / body image.

I have created 2 questionnaires, and I want to use the results in my dissertation. Can I ask you to fill them in? It won't take longer than 5 minutes, I promise! And the questionnaires are anonymous.

Here is the address:


Once the work is done (hopefully by January 2005) you will be able to read it on my site.

Thanks for your help!!

Darn.. missed that.. Would've loved to have done that..

Very interested in your work..

Photographing etc, with a some feministic interest, I'm very interested in body image..

had a community called Bare_Facts, which was all about body image..

I never got around to do much about it, but the idea was to post a nude image of oneself, with facts.. such as lenght, weight etc..

The idea was to show "real people". No matter what you look like etc. The thing, of course, is that one tend to get blinded, by seeing only bodies in commercials etc. Even if I know it's not normal etc, it's very easy to forget that. It's as if a normal body, the image of "normal" has been changed. What we see as "normal". Of course.. there's all kinds of people.. slim, average, overweight.. some are fit, some hefty etc..

And, of course.. discussions about bodyimage..
