In my day job I work in a company where the company’s motto is “dear customer, don’t buy anything from us”.
This is an incredibly simple and effective slogan.
In fact, it has been around for quite some time, and the company has come up with an effective way of addressing the issue of body odours.
The company’s slogan is “Don’t buy from us, we don’t wear that”.
There are two key words in this phrase.
First, it’s a direct message to men.
This is not the first time that men have used the phrase “Don’T buy from the company” in relation to women’s personal clothing.
Second, it is a direct threat to men who buy from companies that don’t meet their standards of what a ‘good’ company is.
The company uses this phrase to suggest that women who wear ‘offensive’ personal clothing are doing so out of malice or self-interest.
This implies that women don’t want to buy from a company that doesn’t meet the company standards, or even worse, that they don’t even want to have a relationship with a company.
This is the exact kind of thinking that fuels sexism and misogyny.
There is nothing wrong with being offended by people’s personal clothes, or of wanting to see them change.
But the idea that women want to get away from a ‘bad’ company or an industry that isn’t ‘good for them’ is an absolute disgrace.
It implies that there is something wrong with women buying from companies where they’re expected to wear something that they are not comfortable with, or something that makes them uncomfortable.
In fact, if you look at the actual statistics on this topic, there are a number of companies that offer women’s clothes that are made with better quality, more flattering fabrics, and a more feminine look.
Inevitably, these companies are going to get a lot of criticism for what they are doing.
However, I think there is an important difference between criticism and judgement.
The criticism that comes from men about a company or a person’s actions should be directed towards that person and their actions rather than their clothing.
The more criticism you have for something, the more you are likely to feel guilty about it, and this may be an unhealthy and unhealthy way to live.
When women’s companies do offer ‘offensive’, ‘sexist’ and ‘inappropriate’ personal items, it does a disservice to their customers and to the women who buy them.
Women’s clothing is not just about clothes; it’s also about a lot more than that.
It is about the way women are perceived, the way they express themselves and the ways that they connect to their communities.
If we want to change that, we have to change the way we talk about women’s fashion.
We need to talk about how women can be more powerful, more empowered, more independent and more comfortable in their own bodies.
Instead of using the word ‘Don’t Buy’ or the phrase ‘Don’t Buy from the brand, we need to use ‘Don’, ‘Donut’, ‘Do Not Buy’, or ‘Donuts’ instead.
These words should be in every person’s vocabulary.
