Here's what I do know: talk is cheap. We repeat the mantra that "breast is best," but we give women few resources to breastfeed beyond a few weeks. We say we care about those with breast cancer by buying up pink products, but those efforts don't do much for those diagnosed with the deadliest form of the disease.
Buying a woman lingerie has a compelling upside. But while the upside is obvious, there are many uncomfortable downsides. One would be that as a man, when you walk into a lingerie store, you're typecast. Your role is either playboy or creep. Ninety-nine percent of us are labeled creeps.

It's that time of year again: the cold sets in and we become less active. And a certain underwear company holds a big fashion show in which women wear very little. While many of us choose not to watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, we are all exposed to it through social media, regardless of whether we want to or not.
While it might be argued that an Asian model's induction into the Victoria's Secret pantheon of Angels would be a positive development because any mainstream popular exposure is better than none, this is not the case when popular portrayals perpetuate harmful stereotypes.
