Reply To: On Objectification of Sam, et al

Anne H.

I have just read all of these posts and this objectifying has been on my mind lately, also. You have all said it already, if we women do not want to be objectified, we must not objectify others. Any others. I do have another concern, however that hasn’t been mentioned yet. In an interview, maybe with Ron, it was implied that there might be full frontal male nudity in the second half of the series. I can think of several potential scenes where this might occur. With all of the inappropriate reactions/actions by fandom to date, I think it would be a big mistake to do this. I guess, if truth be known, the underlying reason for thinking this is to protect the actors, presumably Sam and/or Tobias, from more of what we have already seen. I’m not sure it makes any sense for me to feel this way, but there it is…
