Today in Disembodied Things

From New York magazine's collection of "The Best and Worst of February Fashion Magazines" comes this repulsive article illustration from the increasingly misogynistic Details magazine:

The article, "Can You Still Afford to Be a Player?" is about dating during the economic recession, hence the image implying women are disposable objects which can be literally thrown in the trash when money gets tight.

What I find the most disturbing about this image is that it's not actually possible for the rest of that woman to fit into the bin unless her neck has been broken or her head removed altogether.
