eqrak: Who really is oppressed? More often than not, these women have chosen their garb out of love for their religion, and love for themselves. The magazine depicts a woman not wearing any sort of covering, exposing herself and her beauty. She is photoshopped and manipulated by others to appear to be something that she is not. So, who really is oppressed, the one that has control over her body to wear what she wants, or the one who is at the mercy of the media?

'The Patriarchy' could be replaced even with 'The Church' a few places here. I am SICK and tired of young, impressionable teenagers being taught that girls must cover up their bodies to the point of being ashamed to expose them, because boys are such sex-craved animals that they have no self control over their thoughts and actions, and are therefore, less accountable for them than the females who 'provoked' them to sin by dressing scantily.

Exposing dumb entertainment headlines for what they really are -- socially controlling loads of crap. Hilarious and awesome!
