    Ugh, it's so sad and so offensive. Fuck these sexist beauty standards. Fuck 'real women have curves' bullshit. What the fuck is a real woman? And the marketing strategy? Men love me know that I'm 10 pounds heavier? Because naturally, a man's opinion on women's bodies is the most important. Fuck it, fuck this bullshit.

A leaflet enclosed with the Beans stated that they were also a cure for cirrhosis of the liver, blackheads, and all female complaints, and later they were mainly targeted at women, using glamorous pictures that now appear incongruous with the unattractive product name.
