Women objectify women too

Postby Meridiani Planum » Wed Aug 15, 2012 11:25 am

The results are in...

Women objectify women too.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/bo ... 09076.html

A new scientific study has confirmed a generally assumed truth: Women are objectified far more than men. But in a surprising development, the study also found that men and women are both equally guilty of looking at women as a "collection of parts."

A press report on a fuzzy-subjects paper I can't read...? The results are probably nowhere as exciting as the story the OP links to would have us believe.

I like them nice tits. Here's a picture of a completely nude tit:

On topic, this clearly means we don't have to respect women since women don't respect themselves. Right OP?

Fifty cent would be jealous.

On-topic, what's there not to like about women? They make great food, they have nice boobs, they take care with their appearance, and they give great sex.

Wait... I feel like something's wrong... Like I'm... objectifying people...

Nah, that can't be it.

Of course not. The word you want is "stereotyping", not "objectifying". ;)

In other words, we all evaluate the form of the human female, to assess its attractiveness and beauty? And the male form too, though maybe not as much.

I'm still wondering when and why this became a bad thing?
•Criticism of sentimental love, marriage, sex, religion, and rituals.
•Valuing reason over emotion and imagination
•Ironic, indirect, and impersonal (objective) representation of ideas.
•Uncompromising criticism of romantic illusions.
•Advocacy of pragmatism and disapproval of idealism and ideology.
•Especially vehement opposition to neo-liberalism, social democracy, communism, libertarianism and feminism.
•Satirisation of irrational and whimsical attitudes of the so-called creative class.
•Criticism of social, political, cultural, and moral customs and manners of the contemporary society.
