    • 1999, Phoebe: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Feminist Scholarship, Theory and Aesthetics, Volumes 11-12, page 78:
      From my training as an anthropologist l observed what l call rampant bimbofication. Look at TV. Bimbos. Look at magazines. Bimbos. Go to the mall, the marketplace of our culture, and what do you find? Everywhere images of women with preposterous lips, blackened eyes and pushed up breasts.
