Many are pointing toward Miley Cyrus' "suggestive" dancing, simulated lesbian kiss, and skimpy costumes, as if any of it make intrusive photos of a 17-year-old's crotch admissible. But most irksome is the presupposition that Miley's sexuality doesn't belong to her.
On Monday, Perez Hilton linked to yet another crotch shot of the pop star, seemingly having a wardrobe malfunction—during a performance at Sunday's MuchMusic Awards—that supposedly exposed her labia. I say "supposedly" because in my professional opinion (having worked as a graphic designer) the photo in question looks like a poorly Photoshopped attempt to cash in on an existing scandal. As PopWatch's Whitney Pastorek says, "The 'offending' area doesn't make a lot of anatomical sense."
