You think it's OK to 'ogle' women?
One can only believe he does.
A really good comment I saw was that men shouldn't say anything to a woman that they wouldn't want said to them in an all male prison.
At risk of being accused of virtue signalling, don't we have a whole thread of men ogling women?
The crush thread? Not to put words on her page, I think Minnie addressed this a bit in her longish post and it's something I have a little trouble with - not with what she wrote, but the social reality of it. When does appreciation of someone's physical attributes cross over to harassment? I think I know, but now it's called "objectification" and do I really want to add to it. My daughter has/had an eating disorder in high school and was cutting herself because what she felt she needed to live up to physically. But then we're a visual animal.
Yet, this objectification sells shit - even fast food companies use models to sell their greasy burgers and fries.
Yet, before advertising and photography, painters were painting and sculpting females (and males for that matter).
I feel really bad when actresses feel they have to get "work done," buying into keeping up appearances. I was going to write "myth," but it isn't really a myth when it permeates society so much.
