Dogs in Pantyhose

The Huffington Post published a collection of photographs featuring dogs wearing women's pantyhose (and oftentimes women's shoes).  The dogs are shown mostly from behind and laying down.  Because pantyhose are a sexualized women's garment, the connotations are unmistakable.  Similar to Flying Dog's "Raging Bitch Beer," sexualized images and stereotypes of women as "dogs" or "bitches" are utilized for "humor."  Ultimately, women and dogs are degraded alike (and surely many of these dogs weren't happy being stuffed into hosiery), but Huffington encourages us to relax:  "It's just a joke!"
