Too hot for politics? Canadian Tamil MP at centre of Photoshopping controversy after cleavage is mysteriously retouched

She’s the first Canadian Tamil MP and the standard bearer for young women in a male dominated political culture. But rising member of Parliament, Rathika Sitsabaiesan, 29, is at the centre of an too hot to handle.
According to political blog Contrarian, an enterprising reader performed an image search for Sitsabaiesan and came across the thumbnail.
But when the reader clicked through to Sitsabaiesan’s official Parliamentary profile, he found a modified version of the headshot, which had been retouched to edit out her feminine curves.
Canada’s conservative politicos apparently decided that the photo was inappropriate for a workplace as formal as Parliament.
But critics argue that the alteration was anti-feminist, and that that the cleavage was removed to make Sitsabaiesan appear less womanly.
It is not known if the cropping was requested by her party, her own office, or on the Parliamentary website’s own authority.

      Are we electing people for their skills and knowledge, or are we hiring them because of their breasts?

    Why does someone wear a dress that shows “cleavage”. Afterwards, then cover it up? If modesty was the intent? Wrong clothes!! People have “breasts”, get over it!

      This is the state of world politics, when folk who are entrusted with the pressing problems of the their constituencies start splitting hairs about a woman’s vital statistics and so-called feminists rights while the poor have hardly ANY clothing on their backs and food in their stomachs. Very much like Nero being obsessed with his fiddle while Rome burned to the ground!!!

    Certainly our politicians like pretty ladies & this lady is very pretty. Trust me, this is a storm in a teacup here. I suspect she will probably get some teasing from her colleagues in the House in Ottawa & everyone will have a laugh. However, this has certainly put her face in the media & now people know who she is. You can’t buy this kind of publicity. Good for her!
