Women with Nose Cut Off
Xah Lee, 2010-02-01, 2011-03-28
Time Mag in its 2010-07-29 issue is running a cover with a lurid image of a woman with nose cut off.
The image comes with a big caption: “What Happens if We Leave Afghanistan”. The logic of the juxtaposed caption is clear: if US doesn't meddle with other's affairs, then the world would all cut off women's noses.
The mag tries to justify the image on cover, but i didn't see any justfication for the caption.
