It seems our item about how far you'll go to undress for fashion has caused a bit of stir in the comments section. One debate currently going on is regarding male and female perceptions about the human body, and what reactions to clothing (or lack therof) say about both sexes. So when we came across this very telling picture on Gawker from a local newstand, we immediately thought of our opinionated readers. It's quite the ridiculous double standard, no?
So magazine covers with naked men (playing a character even) are bad. Naked women are good. At least that's what this is saying to anyone who walks by. And we wonder why young women are sometimes perplexed about image and sexuality. Mixed messages abound, in both fashion and magazines and apparently, newsstands.
