Followed by Blake Lively's repost with a plea to the "ladies" to not fall for this kind of language.

Wow. @amyschumer I second that emotion. Ladies, let's not let this happen anymore...

The photo first took off after two parents made Facebook posts about how the covers reflect the alarmingly different expectations society places on girls and boys. One mom wrote an open letter to individuals listed on the Girls' Life masthead including the founding editor and creative director. In the post she writes, "You CAN fight the tide of objectification of girls.You CAN create covers and stories that treat girls as more than hair, lips, and kisses."

Hats off to Amy, Blake, and these parents for putting the proverbial foot DOWN.
