The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition has become mired in political controversy. The magazine has been accused of engaging in political correctness by featuring a “Plus Sized” model on one of its covers.
This is not a matter of political correctness. Sports Illustrated is not going to ruin their brand by engaging in a social experiment. They’ve listened to men and heard that they don’t always prefer extremely thin women. They are responding to market forces. What could be less politically correct than that?
