SheFinds News: Mean Girl Forum
October 24, 2006
According to Glamourâ€™s exec managing editor Susan Goodall, Donâ€™tspotting isnâ€™t just an open forum to make fun of girls you donâ€™t like, â€œWe wanted to have it blossom into a community where people were having a dialogue about fashionâ€. See, just innocently spreading the fashion gospel by sadistically humiliating innocent fashion victims who don’t have access to SheFinds.
The part that doesnâ€™t add up is Glamourâ€™s decision to omit the anonymity protecting black strip that is signature of the print magazine. Since when is it necessary to know the identity of the thoroughly style starved? Glamourâ€™s response is that Dos wouldn’t want their faces blacked out. What a brilliant cultural observation, people donâ€™t mind being called out when the spin is positive rather than humiliating. No kidding!

No one is safe. Not even bonafide fashionista, Coutorture blogger, and former Glamour intern, Julie Fredrickson. Refusing to take â€œdonâ€™tâ€ for an answer, Julie demanded that the photos, lifted from her own site & Flickr, be taken down immediately, and then blogged about it. Now go remove every photo that could get you â€œDonâ€™tspotted.”
