Winner of the "Dumbest Article of the Year" Award

Josephine Skriver

A scold takes on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

The complaint? Racist lingerie.


Assuming the article isn't some clever joke (and I sincerely hope that's the case), it surfaces the increasingly popular "cultural appropriation" complaint; a game of gotcha that has little appeal outside of a faculty lounge. 

Under the rules of the game, rather than being commended for drawing from other cultures, Victoria's Secret is criticized for exploitation.

Those monsters!

We live in strange times.
