Beth Ditto on the Cover of NME
So there's Beth Ditto, lead singer of The Gossip on the cover of the latest NME. Time Out Chicago's blog is asking if it's a boon for size acceptance or just further "objectification masquerading as empowerment".
On the one hand, this is the first time I can recall seeing a naked fat woman on the cover of a pretty big magazine (but you can and should correct me if it's happened before) without any kind of negative, anti-fat message. On the other hand, it's still a naked woman on the cover of a magazine. (But that digresses into the whole aforementioned objectification question.)
