Halima Aden Becomes First ‘Sports Illustrated’ Model to Wear a “Burkini’ While Victoria’s Secret Model Shanina Shaik Opts to Wear Almost Nothing

Sports Illustrated is breaking new ground by featuring Halima Aden in a hijab and “burkini” (basically a full-body wetsuit) in their famous swimsuit issue this year.

Good for her, that’s not usually the sort of outfit you see someone wearing before they turn 60. It’s good to know that you can be modest and still be… not sexy, but I guess be paid for modeling. I think I caught a glimpse of your ankle in that video, Halima, you might want to cover up better in the future.

Across town at Victoria’s Secret, Shanina Shaik is modelling some clothes that don’t make her look like your grandmother wanted to catch some waves on the way to bingo.

Now, I don’t want to pit women against each other, representation is important, blah blah blah. But no one is buying the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue to be “empowered” and “represented”. They’re buying it because their wife has child blocks on the Internet.
