Congratulations, Vogue. You’ve just landed on the doorstep of the multi-billion dollar child pornography industry. I didn’t realize you were so desperate for readers. If the sexualization of a 10-year is now par in 2011 and deemed "art" by your supporters, in what year will you “civilized” people sell young ones for sex?
Congratulations, Vogue, on teaching young girls that they are a commodity, their worth being linked to the appearance of their bodies.
In your lush photography studios around the world, with your fans and make-up and silks...as you arrange your subject’s body in the most “attractive” way, you may think yourself a world away from a Rajasthan village, where girls, just as beautiful are made-up in similar fashion.
You’re closer than you think.
