Sexual objectification of Women

19 Jul

“When women are portrayed as objects
without subjectivity, it may be easier for some to justify violence against
them. If a woman is just a thing to be looked at, her feelings and concerns
might seem less important.” -Naomi Rockler Gladen

 

The way women are used in the media as objects is sickening,  we are being portrayed in a terrible way by being half-naked in every beer, truck, and body wash commercial.  Its one thing if men compare us to inanimate objects, NOT saying that its alright to do, but it makes me feel sorry for the women that willingly do it to themselves.  I’ve met several girls throughout highschool and college that feel the need to put themselves out there to men so that they are more liked.  What ever happened to working on your personality to get people to like you, instead of sleeping with all of them?

    I really like this post, and I agree with everything you have said. Those days of liking a girl for their personality are long gone, now a girl does not even have the opportunity to show a boy her personality because she is so busy competing for his attention just so he ca see that she exist. It is a shame, and to see that there are women who willingly do this to themselves, sometimes make me angry, but on the flip side, I often wonder why? Yeah, some just want attention, but is the economy so messed up that we are willing to do just about anything for a check? Great Post! S.
