How Low Can You Go?

The latest opinion piece on feminism and body image from the New York Times: Great! Another Thing to Hate About Ourselves. – From Sports Illustrated, the Latest Body Part for Women to Fix

This year, the hot new body part is the formerly unnoticed span of flesh between the top of one’s panties and the labia majora, currently displayed on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition by the model Hannah Davis.

The m.p. has made its debut. The author goes on to say that this body part is now on women’s radar and it’s out to prompt an internal dialogue: I never thought about correcting that area before  – but maybe I should?

Maybe it’s age and I’m growing more comfortable with what I have goin’ on or maybe it’s because I am way too modest for that part to ever be shown to the public eye but I’m rather unaffected by the Sports Illustrated cover. I almost feel bad for the model – was her bikini bod not enough?  They had to go beyond that?
