like shooting lindsay lohan who was suffering from drug abuse at the time (idk if she still is? hope not) was somehow classy
Totally. Great example. The exploited a woman who was not in a right state of mind. I personally don’t think being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol is valid consent.
They also put Jessica Alba on their cover against her wishes, which is really shitty. Ugh.
Hello, In regard to Playboy rejecting Courtney Stodden as a model for questionable publication, they stated that they considered her to be "too enhanced". They didn't mention anything about class or lack thereof. To me, their rejection could've been a blessing in disguise for Courtney, as it kept her out of Playboy. Their perpetuation of their version of the "ideal" woman, makes me ill. KayLinn
"too enhanced" is easily a codeword for "not classy enough".
also when they turned her down she was just barely 18 and had not had any surgery, she was literally not enhanced in any way whatsoever. she hadn’t had her breast augmentation nor her lip injections at that point in time. playboy were essentially saying she wasn’t “classy enough” without using those words.
playboy is gross as hell.
someone just sent me a message asking “are you a feminist?”
Do you know why playboy turned courtney down even though she clearly has the body for it?
Playboy is a sexist, misogynist, gender-role reinforcing, patriarchal-standards-supporting company should be burned to the ground, tbh.
Courtney wasn’t “classy” enough for Playboy. Playboy is a company that exploits women for profit while reinforcing patriarchal standards of beauty as well as misogynist expectations and roles for women as sexual objects that must fit into a particular box in order to be considered acceptable as human beings.
They play the guise that they’re “classy” and “tasteful” and people buy that shit because their models aren’t spreading their vulvas open for a macro close-up shot.
Do not forget that they exploit women and reinforce patriarchal standards of beauty and expectations for women.
