I believe the topic of Diana’s wrong-doing or lack thereof has been discussed ad naseum here. It distracts us from the real topic of objectification.

Stating your same opinion multiple times to different posters isn’t going to change anyone’s mind.

This is very good advice. Some people are saying the same thing over and over every time someone posts. Might be time to walk away for a bit and let others speak. Not every one who disagrees with you is attacking you so no need to respond to everything.

Topic? Objectification is bad. People who harass Sam on Twitter are bad. We shouldn’t do it. No one else should do it. But tearing apart other people because they lean slightly to the left or right of this issue isn’t going to help anything, nor is it helping to try to blame Diana or Starz or anyone else for it. The best course of action is to have moderators shut down that talk. Twitter doesn’t have a policy on this so hopefully Sam found the “mute” button there. Comment on articles and say that this isn’t appropriate. Comment on Starz Facebook page and say that this isn’t appropriate. You may get shouted down but at least you are not contributing to the problem.

I think we’re in agreement on objectification=bad so we should be able to get along here and not take every slight disagreement as a personal attack, nor should you feel you have to respond to every single one.
