This Is Hilarious. And So Sad.

Have a look at this story at Frisky and the associated picture from GQ. More pictures are available at Jezebel.

I'm trying to think how I'd explain that Frisky story to my Dear Alien From Outer Space. Yes, that is a human female. Yes, she is dressed in underwear and pretends eating something red and round. No, she's not desperately poor and hungry, she's portrayed as ready for some fertility behavior, including sucking the male human's seed inserter. Yes, the text discusses how large her air-intake valve should be for optimal fertility attractiveness. But she's a feminist because she decided to go with the size her body came with.  Well, yes, this IS how female human beings are often portrayed.
