'We are officially over skinny,' London Times writer Shane Watson decrees. And by 'we,' Watson means everyone. 'Women have started to envy other women, not for their jutting hipbones and the amount of daylight visible between their thighs, but for their soft and shapely bodies,' the Times column proudly proclaims, listing the popularity of Joan on the show Mad Men, the appearance of Beth Ditto naked on the cover of the new UK magazine Love, and the fact that ...

Amazon FAIL

BY Sarah J. in Feminizzle |
