    I'm in the camp with those who have serious concerns about the collective IQs of her parents. If I'd known this girl in high school, I would have (along with her other friends) taken her aside with a really loud "WTH, BAMBI?!" I'd been known to wear some pretty tight jeans myself, or tight sweaters, but COME ON. That's NOT a shirt, woman, it's a band-aid.

    She looks like a bimbo.

    That being said, the way everybody on this thread seems to agree and gang up on her makes me uncomfortable and wonder if we are missing something.
    Yes, she looks like a tramp. But why exactly is that so bad and why is that a reason to ban her picture (assuming it does not violate explicit guidelines)? Why is (especially female) teenage sexuality such a big issue?

    I think the strong reaction to this says more about the society she lives in than it does about her.

    But yeah, I wouldn't want my daughter to run around like that.

    goofy girl. *whack*

    Yes, here is where we see how the abstract analysis can diverge into irrelevance from the practical reality. Ha.

    The reasoning here actually could be applied to any situation in which there is a standard. So the standard says something about the culture; that's nice, of course it would. And just because people agree doesn't say whether something is good or bad; all that can be said is that it strikes a chord in people.

    But I think it's more like Fia said... it's about attention. And she's getting a lot of it, with or without her picture being banned.

    I wonder if everyone around her would be complaining as loudly about it if they found the girl unattractive?

    Frankly, I think she's a chicken. If she were REALLY serious about causing a stir, she woulda gone Wendy O.



    Now THAT'S a senior picture.

    Well, I didn't put it like that in order to avoid coming across as the typical America-bashing Eurotrash.

    And NOW there is a great point to this chick's crappy photo! She has inspired others to do great things because of her body. Intriguingly without the possibility of chafing* or the need for the door to be closed.

    *speaking for myself only here.
