The Factual Feminist Tackles the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue:  While not arguing that the SI cover is in good taste or something you want to share with the kiddies, the FF (aka Christina Hoff Sommers) proposes an interesting idea as to why feminists are so riled. It's not swimsuit, stupid. It's the “male gaze.”

The FF isn't the first IWF colleague who's weighed in on the swimsuit cover. Charlotte Allen had this to say, while Melissa Langsam Braunstein took a different tact.
