Nervy, Pervy X
Annie Tomlin's look at the people, process -- and economics -- behind Suicide Girls is an extremely solid story. A surprisingly giving and impressive analysis published in Bitch magazine that, in the end, determines that Suicide Girls is run in a "slightly feminist" fashion. To Tomlin's discredit, she cops out at the conclusion of the piece by coupling what Spooky, Missy, and O are doing with traditional pornography such as Playboy. Anyone who can't think of a better example of pornography than Playboy clearly knows nothing about porn and shouldn't be criticizing anything as such.
