This is, unfortunately, just an honest reflection of what most advertisements do: detach women’s bodies from their actual human identities. ZOO MAgazine, likes to post pics on it’s Facebook page (similar the the game that started The Facebook) of left or right, hot or not….in this case they even had one that literally divided a woman in half, clarifying that value is seen in parts not the whole & humanity.
