Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?

Photobucket

Yes. I have a personal ongoing boycott of stores and companies that display images in their windows, store walls, catalogues, web sites or commercials that use exposed bodies to sell a product.

One day my 9 year old son made the comment in response to some of those displayed images, “Mom, those pictures are so inappropriate.”

Hello. If a 9 year old boy knows what’s inappropriate, we adults should know it.

I remember, growing up, if an actress on TV wore a low cut gown, my father would comment "It's a shame she couldn't afford the rest of the dress!" If it was REALLY bad, he'd change the channel!

Hear hear. I like the way your little lad thinks.

I remember boycotting a specific store growing up. Do you remember that? Even after the boycott ended, I never really started shopping there. It seems like they never fully recovered.

Yes, I do! I don't think they ever did fully recover. It pays to make wise business decisions.
