WEARING WHAT WEDNESDAY: Late and Sort of not really

So I have been working on a really big WEARING WHAT WEDNESDAY (along with the help of @Dr_Jared), but, considering this and next week are finals, I just haven't had the time to finish it up. 

I know you're all very sad.

To make up for it, here's a great article pointed out by Jockohomo, talking about the objectification of men from Trendhunter Magazine:
From Michael Phelps on magazine covers in swimming gear and a ballsy David Beckham for Emporio Armani underwear to athletes dropping it all for AIDS and cancer charity, the male body is being excessively exploited these days.

Outcries of sexism towards females by the advertising agencies, media and fashion photographers are becoming outdated and irrelevant when we see the same thing happening to men.

You can’t call it sexism anymore if it is happening to both sexes. Excessive sexvertising, nudevertising and a bit of exploitation of the bodies of young models? Yes, maybe. But not sexism.
And, so yea. Click on the the photostream at the bottom of the article so that you, too, can objectify the male body. :-)
