A cancer survivor who wore a tutu during a race was made fun of in the April issue of Self and was extremely offended, to say the least.
The magazine writer declared war on tutus worn during races in a column called "The BS Meter." Underneath a photo of two women wearing superhero T-shirts and tutus -- one of whom was Monika Allen, who was undergoing chemo for brain cancer -- the caption read: ”A racing tutu epidemic has struck NYC’s Central Park, and it’s all because people think these froufrou skirts make you run faster. Now, if you told us they made people run from you faster, maybe we would believe it.”
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, especially when it comes to fashion, but this Self writer was totally off-base and ill-informed.
