(CNN) — Since taking the helm of Yahoo after years in Google’s upper echelon, Marissa Mayer has been at the center of plenty of talk not focused on turning around the once-mighty Web giant.As Silicon Valley’s most prominent woman, her appearance, her motherhood and the way her policies will affect female employees have all, fairly or not, been the subject of spirited discussion.Now, a two-page photo spread in September’s Vogue magazine has them talking again. In the photo, Mayer lies upside-down on a backyard lounge chair, wearing a blue Michael Kors dress. Her blond hair fans out at the foot of the chair, her Yves Saint Laurent stiletto heels point toward the top and she holds a tablet computer featuring a stylized image of her face. In the minds of some, that single image is enough to undo a 3,000-word article — the first in-depth interview Mayer has granted since taking the reins at Yahoo — that focuses on her successes and vision in a male-dominated tech world. “Nothing says, ‘I’m a powerful woman’ like a photo of you upside down on a weird couch,” Stan Horaczek, an editor at Popular Photography, said on Twitter. “Nice work, Vogue.” “Being equal means you can be (feminine) AND smart,” wrote online business consultant Angie McKaig. “However, still wincing over Marissa Mayer all stretched out for Vogue.”
Feminists must not know what to do with Marissa Mayer. On the one hand she’s risen to be the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the world. A true symbol of female equality. Yet on the other hand she’s hot and she knows it. Has no problem slutting it up in front of the camera. Probably would be a smokeshow if I asked her to. No doubt she gave a couple quick beaners to seal the deal at Yahoo. Probably fucks like a jack rabbit too. In other words she is the absolute antithesis of what Feminists preach. That there is no difference between men and women. That people should all be gender blind. That chicks need to be bland to be taken seriously. Wrong on all accounts.
Listen it’s the same thing I’ve said a million times. The only thing more powerful than a hot chick is a hot smart chick. Being attractive is a gift given from god that should be embraced. Being gawked at for your looks doesn’t say anything about your character or intelligence beyond the fact you’re good looking. To not use your looks to your advantage would be like Michael Jordan playing with one hand tied behind his back just to even the playing field. It makes no sense. If you’re hot own it. It’s that simple. And maybe one day you too can be
