Androgynous Male Model Magazine Cover Banned by Barnes & Noble, Borders

Shirtless guys on just about any magazine, no prob for Barnes & Noble or Borders.  But, a shirtless guy who has a very feminine face and hair?  Well that's a different story.

Apparently anything that falls outside the hetero-normative gender imagery is verboten to the gender Nazis at the major bookstore chains.  The stores have insisted on opaque poly bags for the magazine, Dossier if the current issue is to be available in their stores which features androgynous model Andrej Pejic on the cover.

Now women with plunging necklines, lots of skin or more, not so much a problem, so why the double standard?

Page 14 of Marks www.marks.com door to door flyer week of May 5th 2011 displays a male model in underwear with a chest so chiseled it's almost obscene to the extreme that people find no breast on male model Pejic obscene. Mommy why does that man have breasts ?

Barnes and Nobel really know how to market....someone elses magazine and the artist Andrej Pejic fees have propably just quadrippled in a matter of minutes.
