HP says the camera adds ten pounds… but never fear – they have just the remedy to take it off: their new slimming feature.

Rebecca Traister over at Salon says it best in her short opinion piece “Digital Dieting“. Warning… the letters in response to Traister’s opinion on the subject will make you hurl.

For example, from one dissenter: “I would agree with this in the sense that we men need to STOP bedding these complaining, hypocritical women so they do not breed daughters who can then point fingers at men.”

My initial surprise gives way to a long sigh.
