The centerfold for the February 1970 issue, Linda Forsythe was a very different type of Playmate. While socially conscious and outspoken about her belief in challenging the status quo, she deviated from the common perceptions of being in support of "the hippies". Openly critical of the rebellious youth movements, Playboy focused not only on her pictorial in this centerfold, but stressed her anti-hippy leanings.
