Oh those titillating torsos




Progressive book-cover/movie-poster designers and marketing majors take note: This year, just like every year, the bare female torso is the trendy way to hawk your book or movie.

Again, I'll ask just like I asked when The Decency Wars came out (and the author was so kind as to repond on this here humble little blog): Is the usage of sexualized images (which are decidedly non-subversive) like these acceptable if it gets people who wouldn't normally pay attention to read/watch progressive works?

This is not a rhetorical question; I'm really interested in everyone's thoughts.

Discuss.

(I'm sorry for the horrific formatting here. This is a rush post before work; I'll clean it up later.) All done.
