    • The swimsuit issue is their most profitable issue of the year. It leads to desktop calendars and so on. So long as people like looking at attractive women, it'll sell. As far as sexual exploitation of women goes, it's rather tame. Also, they're focused more on women who aren't walking twigs than the Vogues and similar mags.

      • I woulda assumed they just threw in some dudes in budgie smugglers as their response to criticism.

        • For me, it's not a question of ALL, it's a question of WHICH. Or to put it another way:

          Co-worker brings in doughnuts from the shop downtown. You know the shop downtown has had some sanitation issues, including spit and snot and other bodily fluids making it into batter. Some people have gotten sick from those doughnuts. You even got sick from those doughnuts. When the shop owner was questioned about the doughnuts, all he could say was "well, not all our doughnuts were contaminated" over and over again, regardless of how many times he was questioned.

            Wow, wow, wow... You of all people are offended by personal attacks? Give me a (insert profane adjective) break. You have actually been the prime example of that on this thread, and consistently so.

            It would be interesting -and maybe even helpful, even on this tiny scale- if we could all discuss the sea change that awaits this country, and whether or not this is the time to implement it.

            The barbarians are at the gate in terms of this topic, and the far more salient one of voting rights. If they win in 2022/24, our democracy is screwed, possibly forever.

              You need to get less hateful/more fair with your comments. People on here handle you with kid gloves, but you're no better than anyone simply by dint of your gender orientation.

                  I mean, not ALL black people are criminals. It's just a question of which....

                  Again, this is a dangerous line of thinking here, and very MAGA-like. Sure the perspective is from the Left, but you're still using the same logic and it's unacceptable.

                    There is one huge difference, though. In the case of MAGA and the Right more generally this flawed logic is used to reinforce stereotypes that have been enshrined in social practice and law and caused significant suffering to hundreds of millions of people. In OP and the Left more generally the flawed logic subverts stereotypes, "punches upwards," and hurts feewies.

                    Yes, it is sloppy thinking -- I wish everybody was smarter too. But the effect is very different. I'm not threatened as the target of this as a straight white cis male. Whereas an LGBTQ woman of color not only feels but literally is threatened by the fucking sociopathic dullards in the GQP.

                      Not all cis men send me pictures of their Johnson without my permission. Not all of them reduce me to a sexual fetish either.

                      But when I am inundated with this crap every day, it gets tiring and exhausting.

                      And inevitably, I'd rather drive past the doughnut shop and avoid eating anything from there rather than run the risk of getting sick again.

                        Gay cis men do this with each other all the time.

                        Evidently, many men are proud of their package and want to share it with the world.

                            These guys aren't doing it for the audience, they're doing it to get themselves off. The receiver is only a prop.

                            The violation of boundaries is the kink. The same motivation behind right wingers saying "fuck your feelings," or the whole Pepe adolescent shtick.

                            It's acting out by losers who have nothing to offer IRL. A tantrum. I'm sure you know 100x more about it because of your social work training, and you probably know how to respond to it (and if you do maybe you can tell the nation since what we're doing with these 60 million toddlers isn't working).

                              Considering how thoroughly unimpressive and/or poorly maintained a vast majority of said packages are, it's kind of a mystery as to why. Every dude thinks his is the exception, I guess.

                                Many of us are aware of the "last chicken in the shop" affect and keep it to ourselves.

                                We look at enough porn to recognize our athletic and aesthetic deficiencies.
