Megyn Kelly Is This Close To Getting Ewoked Up

She's posing for GQ. Looking sort of... you know.

Megyn Kelly GQ Men of the Year Issue

Mediaite ponders whether this pose is inconsistent with Kelly being taken seriously as a newswoman.

I don't know, but I'm not sure direct male-to-female comparisons are appropriate. Someone might say that a male reporter, considered good-looking, would never pose sexy like this. But they do -- men just show their sexiness in a different way, by and large. A good-looking male reporter might be pictured in a less overtly "sexy" way -- like maybe he's casually leaning back against a wall with his top button undone -- but that kind of shot is the male equivalent of a sexy pose, right?

I'm also not sure that just looking sexy, for either gender, is incompatible with being professional and "serious." Serious people aren't interested in sex? Serious people don't deliberately put out sexy vibes?

There's always all this cluck-clucking over this sort of thing, as people resent that good-looking people have an unfair advantage in all things, including their careers. Over on the feminist side of things, they've created a big (very inconsistently and selectively applied) code to attack good-looking women for doing this sort of thing, to discourage it. (They've been more successful at it than men, certainly, who really don't have anything beyond lame put-downs like "prettyboy" to knock rivals getting an advantage due to looks.)

But show me a feminist author who can sell a few more books on Oprah by talking a lot about sex and showing some cleavage and I'll show you a feminist author who is on Oprah talking about sex and showing some cleavage.

In summary: I would hit that so hard I'd split atoms in her privates.

Thanks to Nathan.
