Listening to NPR today, the topic of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. I was surprised at the amount of attention this low rated glorified commercial was receiving. The show is sexist, transphobic, lookist... it caters to the Male Gaze and furthers the imperatives of the Beauty Industrial Complex. In short, pretty much all of the commentary concerned how reactionary the fashion show was.
I have to note that none of this should have come as a surprise to anyone... I mean, the very name of the corporation says everything that anyone needs to know about it.
