For me sexualisation is objectification and that is not a good thing.
I don't agree that sexualization is objectification. Most women I know are perfectly okay with moderate sexualizing of themselves. When a woman dresses up in sexy lingerie for her husband or boyfriend she's not "objectifying" herself; it's simply a healthy expression of her sexuality that enhances the couple's enjoyment of their relationship. When I go to the bar, I see women sexualizing themselves by dancing sexily and having fun doing it (Okay the REALLY drunk ones can carry it to far - that's why I go
). Being shown in a sexual light does not make a woman an object. And let's be honest - all heterosexual males between the ages of 15 and 90, when in the presence of a beautiful woman, will be thinking of her sexually at least for some length of time without her being "sexualized" at all. It doesn't make us pigs; it makes us men.
I think you are old-fashioned (some would say Puritanical), which is fine, but you need to understand that this trait is not very compatible with modern society. Personally I prefer a sexually-free society to one where everyone has to act saintly, put on airs, and sniff smelling salts when the topic of sex is brought up.This comment was edited on Dec 18, 2011, 21:24.
