The latest PC battle line: "body image"

Did Victoria's Secret Just Make Another Body-Image Blunder? 

"A few weeks ago, Victoria’s Secret received backlash for its latest campaign. The main image featured the brand’s traditionally willowy models lined up with the caption: The Perfect Body. While it was meant to highlight the brand's Body line of underwear, the visual sparked an outcry as critics claimed that the ad perpetuated unrealistic body standards. More than 32,000 people signed a petition asking Victoria’s Secret to apologize for and change the campaign."
Of course Victoria's Secret models have exceptional physiques--just like most professional athletes. But why is it now politically incorrect to reach a high level of physical fitness?
