Letter: SI swimsuit cover not getting attention given ‘Frozen’
First Published Mar 01 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 01 2014 01:01 am

Robert Kirby missed one in his recent list of entities that push the "gay agenda" ("An alleged gay agenda in ‘Frozen’? Fear your own agenda," Opinion, Feb. 24): Sports Illustrated.

The magazine’s recent swimsuit edition featured three lovely young topless women in thong bikini bottoms, arms draped around one another, hands resting playfully on each other’s bare… well, you get the picture.

Yet I haven’t heard any outcries about how SI is trying to convince our young women to become lesbians. If a mainstream magazine featured a similar cover with men in thongs in the same positions (whether models, NFL players or, apparently, snowmen) the shouts of "gay agenda" would be deafening.

This is just another example of how irrational and culturally dictated homophobia truly is, and how straight-male dominance continues to dictate our societal norms.
