Girls who wear leggings can’t miss this and well, even others shouldn’t miss this one. The popular Tamil magazine ‘Kumadum Reporter’ shamed women who wear leggings.
The recent edition of this magazine has shown women wearing leggings in the worst light possible. For their cover issue, they clicked pictures of women wearing leggings (possibly without their permission) when their kurta was flowing or when they were sitting on a bike.
Photographs taken from bad angles were used to show that women wearing leggings cross the line of decency. This has caused major uproar against them which is valid in all terms, especially when their cover shouts out loud ‘leggings vulgarity’ in bold yellow.
A journalist, Pinky Rajpurohit shared on Facebook:
The public outrage reached such a level that a freelance journalist Kavita Muralidharan filed a petition against the magazine asking the magazine to apologize for their shameful report.
People are sharing the petition on various mediums to ensure that the callous attitude of the magazine management changes and they accept their mistake and apologize for it.
Already 14,244 people have signed this petition and it needs just 756 more to reach their goal of 15,000.
The magazine’s cover has raised many questions on sensitization of issue while (possibly) intruding in people’s privacy to create a false moral ground. Ethical much? News Source: The Huffington Post and DNA
