Summer fiction tits

Jane Dark ably sums up Fence editor Rebecca Wolff’s defense of her decision to put a topless Suicide Girl on the cover of the latest issue.

1) I am a feminist; I am using tits to sell stuff.

2) Fence Volume 6, number 2, Fall/Winter 2003 was a good issue.

3) It didn’t sell…

4) …because the cover art was too artsy.

5) Tits are a very successful strategy for selling stuff. They succeed in signifying abstract satisfactions. Our naked model may breastfeed some day.

6) Tits are in fact only about breastfeeding (which I am doing). My baby has an unconflicted relation to this. Why not give people what they want?

7) Yeay for the tits on the cover!
