Reply To: On Objectification of Sam, et al


Absolutely nothing wrong with feeling turned on by whoever or whatever. That’s not the issue. Nudity, eroticism and depiction of sex I have no problems with at all. It’s not a matter of prudery or prissiness. Lord knows I can curse a blue streak and some of the sexual banter my husband and I have would probably shock some 😉

But, the issue for me is the objectification over and over and over. It’s just too much. It makes ME uncomfortable just because I find it–well, I don’t like it for anyone. Sometimes I get the impression that for some women it is about “revenge” in a loose sense. Don’t like that either 🙂
