    not (only) for what she's done, but for her looks, her clothes and her cellulite. I didn't know that only women with perfect bodies are allowed to show their legs. And I guess you're only allowed to take a "provocative" pose if you want to incite sex. I guess she should wear a burka since she's an unwed mother and talks about abstinence.

    To be clear: I abhor what she's doing as an abstinence spokesperson, but criticizing her looks is BS. Criticizing anybody's looks is BS.

      exactly that - criticizing them for their looks. That is not the definition of sexism.,

      Posing provocatively in a scanty dress is antithetical to advocating abstinence.
