Continuing my comments about objectification. I employ the term ironically, if you didn’t get that. I’m as feminist as the most people, a lot more than most I think. I believe that anything a man can do a woman can do just as well, if not better. If anything, I’m a little bit of a…what’s the word…misteroginist? if I’m underestimating or disrespecting someone, 98 times out of a hundred it’s a guy. My problem is that I love women too much. This is my favorite meme right now:
First off, in a recent conversation with a delightful lady friend, I gave my best effort to understanding why enjoying imagery of beautiful women is not just a little bit twisted, but deeply insulting to all women. Everywhere. Understand that this is a woman I adore, who generally and enthusiastically enjoys, extolls, and incites my twists, so it’s not like we’re antagonists. I remain unconvinced, as long as my admiration of the female form does not cause me to undervalue any woman’s other qualities.
I also take exception to the claim that objectification of women is a result of male dominance. Something tells me this young lady is in total control.
