Hadley Freeman is super-awesome

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rather predictably, I hate the idea of "fashion" and the elitist, mega-consumerism it incites. However, whilst being aware that the industry has a sleazy underbelly of exploitation I was not aware that it was quite as dark as Hadley reveals it to be. Her juxtaposition of this story and that of the slightly chubby model pictured on page xxxxx of some glossy, narcisisstic piece of pseudo-journalism reveals much about the mainstream media's prediliction for gossip over issues of social import. That the fashion industry itself has utterly failed to condemn Anand Jon Alexander's sexual predation is similar revealing of its inherent sociopathy.

I am quite pretentious. Yes.
