It's not the picture that bothers me (except the women do look really glassy eyed) as much as the tired bullshit teaser heading that accompanies the photo:

Annie Leibovitz photographs the nine dolls on V.F.’s cover, as Evgenia Peretz explains why Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, et al. are nobody’s playthings.

DOLLS? Seriously? WTF?

These are talented women! If that was a headline on a picture I was in, I would be mortified. I want to know who wrote that and if they really thought the word DOLL made sense. All the editors should be ashamed.

I swear every time we make a big leap forward a la Bigelow's DGA win, there is someone with a pitchfork ready to put us back in our places.

Use this link to send a letter to the editor telling him what you think.
