re:Fresh Fruit

The Sex and the City Paradox
" 'You are simultaneously totally objectified and more empowered than you used to be.' Objectified because we're prostrating our bodies on some pedestal of misogynistic, almost pedophiliac-like desire, creating a false kind of perfect woman whose beauty and polish can be attained only after hours and weeks of personal grooming and high-end hygiene. Empowered because it's all marketed to us as some sort of self-improvement." 
-Alex Kuczynski for Harper's Bazaar
