'Boob' Blogging

The more I read Ann Althouse's defending her calling attention to Jessica Valenti's wearing a tight sweater while posing for a photo with Bill Clinton, the more I feel dirty. She tries to excuse herself by claiming that Jessica's Feministing blog exploits women's anatomy — as if two wrongs make a right. Jessica shows images of women looking sexy, so therefore, by Althouse's logic, she deserves to be ridiculed when she wears a form-fitting sweater to meet our adulterous former President. And the ridicule, once started, has to go on, and on, and on, and Althouse has to justify herself up and down, lest she lose her Second Wave feminist credentials.

Ann, if you want to accuse Feministing of having only the breast intentions, I suggest you first get off your ad hominem high horse.
