My my. It's a return to the good old days of harems and slave markets. It's strip mining. It's capitalist exploitation, with a slight twist: the models are getting rich, as in hiring scabs and paying them well.
Well... freedom isn't free. You've got to have cash to buy it. I guess.
Doesn't our money even say "In Cash We Trust"?
I'm sorry, is this trivial nonsense, this meaningless bloviation, what FORA is about? "Empowering" women by by pressuring them to be boner-inducing cupcakes?
I'll take personal power that does not involve serving the [unimaginative] fantasy of marketers. This is not power, but reinforcing a hierarchy where the person with the boner holds the power and the person who serves the boner is rewards with crumbs.
You can count me out of this conversation and FORA.tv altogether.
