Sounds like she was the victim of profit-driven production and what I call the “slutification effect.” The theory that respect comes with the baring of arms—and legs and torso—is a result of an entertainment industry where sex sells and profit governs the product.» —“Risque business leads to slutification of teen stars” by Tiffany Siu in Rice University Rice Thresher (Houston, Texas) Feb. 16, 2007.
