STOP COVER YOUR CHILDREN’S EYES GOD FORBID THEY SEE THIS ELLE COVER:
If you all couldn’t get that I was being sarcastic then you probably don’t read my blog much but that’s okay you know now.
Anyway this picture, which I think is rather lovely made the cover of Elle.
And there were mixed reviews . Which I really can’t understand.
Because we all see boobs used in adverts all the time and seemingly there’s no really gross outcry so why now? That is what boobs are there for…have we in fact over sexualised them so much that we’re forgetting that the main purpose of them is to feed a hungry baby?
And why not put this on the cover? She’s still wearing beautiful clothes, and she is still modelling, only with a baby on her chest.
Hmm well sadly the big Chiefs over at Elle only allowed this cover to be sent to Elle subscribers because they were worried people wouldn’t by it in supermarkets. Which made me wonder, if the kind of people that read your magazine are so grossed out by breastfeeding that they wouldn’t buy the magazine for that sole reason, shouldn’t you get some better readers?
Anyway even if Elle did only send this out to a select few well done for trying to help normalise the normal! Maybe my faith in beauty magazines can be rebuilt (btw if you missed that post its here).
Where do you stand on this?
