On one hand, I see and sort of agree with those who say Katrina is a role model for little girls. Hence, she should not have posed for Playboy. On the other hand, society has certain expectations about women. What Katrina did is no different from those who do beauty pageants and contests. Maybe the word "playboy" is the problem.
If I have any reservations about Katt posing for Playboy, which I real don't, I couldn't care less, the fact of her being a "role model for little girls" would be my last concern. Maybe in Germany, but certainly not in North America. She was ten years past her eligible career when she did this, and if any young skaters had role models, or the actually time to follow any elite skater, it would be someone more current. But, like I said, maybe in Germany. Is the english Playboy actually widely available there?
