    Below is an essay from a Guest Blogger and Ardent Reader of Elev8.com.  As lead editor  I try very hard to straddle  the gate of neutrality. This subject is a hot button. I heard an abundance of complaints yesterday about this cover. Here is one well-written-out one. I want to hear from you. – Oretha Winston- Lead Editor

    My gender receives enough judgement for ten lifetimes, so I try to not to be that addendum, that being said my timeline is harassing me.

    When I look at Beyonce’s new GQ cover all I see is pornography. This is not an indictment on homegirl as there’s nothing wrong with porn, I mean it’s legal, although I think it should be quarantined for adult readership. And still haven’t figured out why Beyonce’s type of porn gets the America’s Apple Pie beauty award and Flynt’s Hustler chicks represent the fall of mankind, but whatever. Both perpetuate lascivious imagery that attempt to illicit a sexual desire via more than normal sperm ejaculation.

    The most incongruous part is Beyonce could sell millions of records on her own vocal merit without doing any PR blitz -in fact she doesn’t need to sell another product again in life and she could still maintain her opulent lifestyle and $700 baby sock fetish. I can’t help but be suspect of any woman that doesn’t have to be part of the sex industry yet continues to immerse herself within it exclusively for self-esteem perks (I can’t imagine any altruistic concern for GQ advertising dollars). I get desperate women from the lower socio-economic class who expose themselves for the financial gain, I understand that gyration ladder of possibilities but I thought there was an end game to it – the liberation and sigh of relief when you finally get to that pinnacle of monetary stability that you can cease catering to the whims of undeserving simple azz salivating dudes.
