I see some people on the internet straining to label this cover image of a Hillary Clinton-headed planetoid as sexist, or some sort of weird political statement. I just don't see that this time. While Clinton is obviously the object of a lot of hostile sexist imagery and lazy sexist high-heel symbolism, sometimes an image is just an ugly, bad idea that never should've happened. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not seeing something. But to me, this just looks like a bad decision that somehow made it through the entire editorial and production process without common sense intervening.
