Dismayed over positive viewpoint

To the editor: I was extremely shocked and dismayed to read your article and then the editor’s positive comments on the Crooked River Round-Up’s new fund raiser calendar. As a young woman of this community, I feel degraded by the fact that this organization is using the bodies of women just to turn a profit. Pimps and pornography run on the same principle: selling the bodies of women for their own advantage. It’s degrading, not giving respect to women. It’s disgraceful that a great family/community event like the Round-Up would stoop to such a thing. Sarah Oehlschlaeger Prineville
