Censored Magazine Covers
Two major bookstore chains required the new issue of Dossier magazine to be poly-bagged because it featured a topless model on the cover, according to Elle.com. The irony? The model is male. But apparently the image of 19-year-old Andrej Pejic in curlers was too provocative for the stores. "It's a naked man on the cover of a magazine, which is done all of the time without being covered up, so I definitely don't think it merits this, but I understand what it is," Dossier co-founder Skye Parrott told The Huffington Post. "It seems that it probably made people uncomfortable. But that's part of what's interesting about the cover, I think, is that it's playing with those ideas of gender roles."
