This just in from the Huffington Post. Dossier magazine has been relocated to an opaque plastic bag for being to risque.
Click on the link above to place your vote on this cover…do you think it is offensive? I certainly don’t.

    I do not find this offensive at all, and I have trouble understanding why this is offensive. The shock of androgyny should be well over by now!

  2. Dad says:

    Oh I get it – she’s a he. Still not good enough for me to not be offended. Elinor – you are not a parent of an anorexic daughter whose body is eating itself to keep its heart pumping. Glamorizing an emaciated body like this (one that will be assumed by most passersby to be that of a woman) is repulsive to me for the harm it causes to young girls like mine. I spit on this shit.
