Bloggers Shocked That Jessica Has Breasts–Should She Have Worn a Burka?


I didn’t realize that the meeting Bill Clinton had with bloggers was so controversial. Althouse objects to Jessica (front row, center) posing, accusing her of writing “one of those blogs that are all about using breasts for extra attention. Then, when she goes to meet Clinton, she wears a tight knit top that draws attention to her breasts and stands right in front of him and positions herself to make her breasts as obvious as possible?”

Jessica protests that “things like this remind me that no matter what I do or accomplish, because I’m a young woman all I’m good for is fodder for tacky intern jokes and comments that I don’t “represent feminist values” because of the way I posed in a picture.”

I’ll have to leave it to the feminists to argue over the “political correctness” of Jessica’s pose. Perhaps they would have been happier if she had worn a burka. Looking at this more scientifically, I am reminded of what I learned in undergrad statistics. The average human has one breast, along with one testicle. The fact that Jessica has two seems like no big deal. Going beyond statistics to clinical experience, I’ve done hundreds, perhaps thousands, of physicals. Every woman I’ve seen was born with two breasts. We’re dealing with perfectly normal anatomy here. After meeting with Bill Clinton, there must have been a lot more to talk about beyond the fact that Jessica has a pair of breasts. Considering how modestly she is dressed, it is hard to be shocked by this picture, especially after a week in which pictures of Lindsay Lohan’s bare and shaved vagina have been all over the internet.

    Jessica is a young, attractive woman, who had a chance in her lifetime to have a picture taken with Mr. Bill and Company, so she made sure it was a picture that showed her good side. (At least she didn’t wrap herself arond the guy, like some other pictures of young women with famous men I’ve seen.) Also most women who find themselves in the front of a group for a picture soon learn to turn a bit to their side to avoid the always awkward full-on poker view.

    My vote as a feminist? Picture is fine. So she vamped a bit, big deal.

    Now the photos of Lindsay Lohan nearly caused nausa. Easily more disturbing than the pics of an 18-year-old Suri Cruise trapped in a baby’s body.

    Oh, don’t attribute Althouse’s reaction to the rest of us feminists. Althouse would have been happier if Jessica had worn a burqa, but she’s proven over and over again that she’s not very committed to feminism except as something she can use to club people like Jessica.

    I didn’t mean to give that impression. I just didn’t want to claim to speak for feminists personally, plus the other site I linked to did have favorable comments about Jessica.

    Right. Again, I don’t want to claim to speak for feminists, but I would hope that wanting to look attractive in a photo isn’t something which is opposed to feminist principles. Actually it is just normal human behavior, regardless of sex.

    I’m shocked the rest of the people in the picture aren’t scarier looking. When you hear the phrase “here’s a picture of bloggers”, one would usually assume the worst.

    Todd, LOL

    PJ’s and wild hair. Fingerstips shriveled down to knuckles. Red, bulging eyes. And of course, the scariest of all, pizza crust on the pjs. @;-)
