Recently I visited the Museum of Man at Balboa Park here in San Diego, where there is an "Empowering Women" exhibit.

We've been having some unusually scorching weather here in San Diego this past week, which meant a weekly meeting with my fiance/business partner turned into a drive to La Jolla Cove. On this particular day we could see smoke from various fires up in the northern part of the county, and I was reminded to be grateful that my friends and family were safe.

How does #LaPerla think ribs on a mannequin is ok?! @SethMatlins pic.twitter.com/NPYMLQxhNc

Because of complaints, the lingerie store La Perla removed a mannequin from a store window - a mannequin so skinny that its ribs were showing.
If I had seen this mannequin a year ago, I would have thought it was offensive too. After all, we see enough skinny women in fashion magazines, and the more you see skinny women, the more you think that you should look that way too. I get that. That's one of the reasons why I stopped buying fashion magazines.
