It wasn’t ‘A Woman’ either. Not even ‘His Model Girlfriend’. Neither was she just a pair of tits with a pretty face and long legs who happened to be in a relationship with a famous athlete. It’s not ok to look for the most titillating photo in her portfolio and publish it full-size on your front page without her name either. I’m not going to link to any of the stories where she’s been treated this way because I don’t want to give their authors any more oxygen, and besides, you will be tripping over them every time you go into a newsagent or look at a news website.
She wasn’t just an extension of whatever man owns her, and it isn’t more terrible or shocking or worthy of our attention that she’s dead because she had nice breasts. Even when she’s dead she’s only really of interest to the Sun editors as masturbation fodder.
Her name was Reeva Steenkamp.
