Peculiar Con Article...

...over at The Smart Set:

That’s why, when I go to the bathroom later, I’m not really surprised to find three Suicide Girls, the goth/punk/emo alt-porn models, in there with me. They’re not at the convention to discuss the sweet new Magic deck they made or storylines from Marvel’s Civil War; they’re there solely to provide eye candy. With their tight black dresses, dyed hair, and prominent tattoos, the Suicide Girls are like the real-life versions of overly sexualized superwomen — different enough from the average woman to be exciting, but normal enough to feel safe. The X-Men’s Rogue is attractive because she has a dangerous power while remaining a sweet Southern belle. Similarly, the Suicide Girls might be lauded as hyper-feminist porn because the girls sport pierced nipples and aren’t dominated by men in their photos, but the vast majority of Suicide Girls are also skinny white girls who shave their vaginas. They’re mainstream-friendly counter-culture.
