Dear Girls is a photoshopped image featuring model Cole Mohr in space holding a sign instructing women to not be insecure. The photograph has been criticized for being pseudofeministic and even misogynistic, inspiring a number of parody images reenacting the photo.


On May 8th, 2011, the Latvian site Spoki[10] published an image compilation including a photo of fashion model Cole Mohr[9] edited with an outer space background and a sign which read "Dear Girls / don't be insecure / you don't need make-up & nice clothes / you're all fucking beautiful."

On August 8th, 2011, the Mohr photo was posted several times on the microblogging site Tumblr.[11][12][13] On September 3rd, a Facebook[1] page for "Dear Girls Don't Be Insecure U Don't Need Makeup & Nice Clothes" was created, which received over 1,250 likes within 10 months. On November 2nd, Tumblr user Unbroken Wave[5]posted several webcam photos of a boy holding signs featuring the same message as the one displayed in Mohr photo (shown below).
