Uh, remember that little segment on the Today show yesterday? Something having to do with, oh, women and body image and magazines that do brutal retouching jobs on their cover subjects thus inspiring self-hatred and impossible standards of beauty — all in the name of "industry standards"? Yeah, we caught that segment too! And remember how Men's Health editor David Zinczenko and that psychologist kept saying that it's totally okay that magazines do this, because everyone knows that said magazines are "aspirational"? Well the word 'aspirational' is only two letters removed from 'inspirational', Mr. Zinczenko, especially with regards to young girls.
