By Jill Filipovic In some ways, the Julia Louis-Dreyfus Rolling Stone cover is a sign of how far we've come: A 53-year-old woman is naked on the cover of a major American magazine and the ensuing controversy isn't about bare skin, but historical accuracy--the US Constitution is printed on her back with "John Hancock" scribbled atop her butt, but his famous signature...
