Image via Terry's Diary
Sorry but there is no way Gloria Steinem posed for this picture fully cognizant of who the creepy tentacle wrapped around her body belongs to. The feminist icon launched her career with a 1963 article which went undercover at The Playboy Club (you can read it here) and spent the following fifty years as the most visible member of the Women's Movement (not that it's much of a "movement" anymore). There are legitimate reasons to criticize her, but her commitment to feminism is not one of them. There's no way she could have known of Richardson's reputation or his work in advance of this picture, there's just no way. Look at that taunting Terry leer.
