[quote quote=4591] Even seeing Jamie and Claire portrayed on the show doesn’t bother me like seeing the repeated gifs of them making eyes, or whatever, over and over and over. I think we can objectify the act of sex, as much as we can objectify people. Context is the key, I guess. Sorry to ramble. This is the first time I’ve tried to put my thoughts into words on this matter. It’s a work in progess. [/quote]

I don’t like those GIFs either but I couldn’t really put a reason to it. But yes – it does objectify not only the actors but the act as well. Great insight.
