A BC Law student poses topless for a Boston-area laddie mag. No one really cares, including me. But I did find this part of the article interesting:
With a winsome pout, the blonde first-year law student from South Carolina posed topless for the cover of a Boston men’s magazine, although a Boston College pennant covers her embarrassment.
Her embarrassment? Is that what we’re calling ta-tas these days?
An attorney and a law student also weigh in, basically saying that the woman is unprofessional. Which, yeah, posing topless with your law school’s banner over your breasts doesn’t exactly scream “Responsible and mature future lawyer.” But I’ll bet that she’s getting more positive feedback for this photo spread — even if that feedback is naturally punctuated with “what a slut” commentary — than she would have gotten for holding down a high GPA at Boston College. And many young women are brought up believing (not inaccurately) that if we’re blessed with beauty, it’ll be more beneficial to us than brains, and that “you’re gorgeous” is a better compliment than “you’re brilliant.” I’m not all that surprised that even a smart, highly educated young woman with all kinds of things to be proud of would also want to receive positive feedback on her looks, and would pose in a magazine in order to get that feedback.
