Look, But Don’t Look

Are women objectified? We hear it everyday. We hear it so much that for some, the statement simply goes in one ear and out the other. It has become common knowledge that women are being objectified in commercials, billboards, movies, and everywhere else an attractive woman just happens to be standing and men just happen to be looking.

Why is this common knowledge? Well, if there was anything anyone could possibly claim feminism is solely responsible for, this is it. There is little need to revisit the past to examine the cause and effect of this issue as there is plenty of evidence right now of the inherent bigotry against men and women feminists are still spreading through endless propaganda.

Basically, if an attractive woman, and only an attractive woman, one with the figure of say, a swimsuit model is posing for a picture in any kind of provocative clothing then she is being objectified. Forget the fact that this woman chose to do this knowing  that her looks would sell whatever product she was posing for, forget the fact that this woman more than likely takes care of her body by working out and eating right keeping herself fit and healthy, forget everything that makes sense, forget logic, and forget reason. Now that every rational explanation as to why women are not objectified in the media has been set aside, let’s look at the feminist reasoning as to why every woman that is attractive is being objectified. Those reasons being; because men are in charge of the photo shoot, commercial, or movie where the woman has to parade herself around in front of the camera and patriarchy, their fall back reason on any issue for blaming men.

Men are in charge: This is a flat out lie. A rather pathetic lie if you really think about it. Maybe seventy years ago men were in charge of the majority of photo shoots, commercials, and the like but this, the famous feminist attempt at using the past to justify bigotry in the present even though they usually lie about the past and what really happened in no way justifies anything done today, is irrelevant as the fashion industry right down to who is telling women what color scheme to wear is heavily populated by…that’s right, women. Yes women and the new age sensitive men are the ones snapping the shots, tucking in waste lines, and hiking up models’ dresses in order to flash more leg for the camera. Women run the fashion world and women set the standards for what models look like. While there are still a larger number of men in control of movies the fact remains that women are right there behind the cameras with them. There are plenty of female screenwriters, directors, and costume designers. Karyn Kusama, director of Jennifer’s Body is one such director who is considered to be a feminist by many. This movie, written by, Diablo Cody another woman that puts shame to the feminist men control everything propaganda didn’t seem too angry about the attractive Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried making out and dry humping in their night attire on a bed while young boys gazed wide eyed in theaters. Kusama didn’t seem too upset about the focus of the movie being Megan Fox in as little clothing as possible and fondling with teen boy fun parts. Granted the movie did actually have a plot but oh how feminists were in an uproar about this one. First they conducted their usual bashing of Megan Fox making sure to in some way link every insult about her intelligence and acting ability to her looks and not surprisingly professing that the only reason she is so popular is because of her looks. Whether this is true or not matters little to me, however, wasn’t it feminists who said that women should not be ridiculed for being attractive and wearing provocative clothing? I guess they are the only ones allowed to do the ridiculing. Anyway, yes, as one would imagine, the accusations of objectification was made even though men in film making had nothing to do with the plot, little to do with the cast, and vaguely any interest in regards to the creation of this film. However, the whole men are the root cause of all women’s problems stereotype shined bright throughout the film. That one feminists had no problem getting behind.

Male dominated audience: Another lie. Women spend $4 trillion annually, accounting for 83% of all U.S. Consumer spending – or, an astounding two-thirds of the nation’s gross national product. This figure probably wavers but the point is still the same; advertisers know that women are the dominant majority buying their products and thus model their advertisements to appeal to women. Most of the commercials on television from make-up and lingerie, to computers and medicine are targeted towards women. Regardless of whether men, women, or both are behind the camera telling young models to dance around in bikinis does nothing to change the fact that the products sell and women are the ones buying. Women watch television more than men. The fact that almost any sitcom or drama on television today simply must have at least one female character that can outwit, outfight, and out joke all of the male characters is a testament to that fact. Also every crime drama is littered with these characters and all adhere to typical misandric stereotypes such as men are the only ones who commit rape and domestic violence and courts view all female rape accusers as liars and lawyers are bombarded with hardships in getting convictions.

Yet even with all of the proof that women are the primary targets of media advertisers and that even feminist directors and female writers have no problems with having their actresses show some skin and make out to sell tickets, the majority of feminists still claim that whenever a woman puts on shorts and walks down the street be it on TV, in a movie, or in real life that woman is somehow being objectified by men. They even go as far as claiming that women are exploited by men and only men throughout the media, especially in pornography. Speaking of pornography, let’s bust another feminist propaganda bubble.

Pornography: One of several professions where pay gaps show women making more than men but pay gaps are for another article. Feminists claim that half of the women who enter the porn industry do it out of desperation and poverty. The other half are forced in by abusive boyfriends. As comical as this sounds this is their belief. Well I admit it is the growing anti-porn feminist belief. The pro-porn feminists believe that women are empowering themselves by taking control of their sexuality for money. Some would claim this had been done over a millennium ago through prostitution but I digress. There is one common agreement between the pro-porn and anti-porn feminist camps though, women are being objectified and exploited.

Why? Because of the same debunked claims as above, men are in charge of all porn.

How? Because of some of the things that are done in porn such as fake rapes, domination, urinating and the like. Granted there is, in my opinion, some pretty sick things done to women in some pornographic videos. However, it isn’t sick to everyone and I realize I do not have the right to decide what is and what is not decent for everyone. Feminists can not comprehend the idea of not forcing their opinions on others and they constantly ignore the fact that all of the things that are done to women in porn are not only done to them by men but women as well. Also all of the things done to women in porn are done to men as well by men and by women and just as with the models in commercial advertisements, these men and women choose to do these things. Some even enjoy the idea of people watching them. Also women, feminist and non-feminist, are no strangers to watching porn.

When the issue of objectification is analyzed on all sides one will find that women are not the only shirtless models posing in front of products on television and in magazines. When one analyzes the reasons why feminists are so angry about attractive women being the center of the advertisement world the true nature of their protests reveals itself rather simply. While I cannot say what the standard for attractiveness is for everyone, what we see on television is what the majority believes to be attractive or they wouldn’t be the ones in lingerie and diet commercials. Now the stereotype that all feminists are unattractive can be thrown out the window, which is why I believe the inherent anger they feel when a woman makes money off of her looks goes deeper than simple jealousy. You rarely see feminists protesting against physically fit men advertising for exercise equipment, beer, cologne, and an assortment of other things. To them that is just fine. However, whenever a woman dares to put on a bikini and stand or dance in front of anything then the patriarchy has reared its oppressive head and the model has somehow been indoctrinated since birth to believe that her looks are what matters most in life and the only way she can make money is by showing her tight stomach rather than being the CEO of Better Than Men Industries and breaking the glass ceiling. Feminists are angered by beauty pageants, Playboy, and America’s Next Top Model but are fine with Mr. Universe, Playgirl, and…America’s Next Top Model. This article could have fit right in with my recent Double Standard Supporters piece because as always, feminists dig their own graves with their advocacy for ending what they believe to be discrimination against women but ignoring the exact same circumstances with men. The goal of feminists, I believe, is to make the public disgusted with seeing women dancing in music videos and wearing provocative clothing in commercials and movies, only attractive women of course, because they want parents to teach their daughters that it is wrong to use your beauty to get ahead in the world. How can women dominate the business industry and all of the high end corporate positions if a lot more women than men prefer to just take their clothes off and walk up and down a stage for a few minutes? Since feminists know they can’t force every individual man and woman to do what they want, they will endlessly spew their lies in order to make people believe that what feminists want, is what they want. They cannot accomplish their overall main goal of ousting all men from any position of power if women don’t feel like trying to take them. I have no real positive or negative opinions towards the fashion industries or the practice of taking pictures of pretty people and I don’t think it is my business or the business of anyone else what a woman or man chooses to do with their life. Feminists, digging their own graves, believe otherwise.

Those who really degrade women: When feminists attack pageants and commercials they go full force. Lingerie and swimsuit models become anorexic little boys. Yes, feminists make the claim that beautiful women who keep themselves healthy and physically fit in reality look like small 13-14 year old boys that no man would ever want. Their advice? Eat…eat fast and eat a lot until the jiggling roles on their sides illustrate the true beauty of the female form…on the inside of course because that’s all that matters. While it is true that not many would want a relationship with an attractive person that turned out to be a jerk, the fact remains that the word attractive has nothing to do with being better than someone else, it is simply what attracts one person to another. People look before they speak and everything else falls in line. Feminists know this and the attractive women I have seen amongst them have no shame in shaping their bodies to the same proportions of those 13 year old boys and dressing in the same manner of those exploited porn stars. What is their programmed defense when asked why they choose to wear these things? I can wear what I want. Oh but as we already know there is a double standard with any feminist claim. For once I would like to walk down the street without hearing cat calls. The comedy never ends with them. Women will dress themselves in clothes advertised and sold with the intent of attracting men and then get enraged when men are attracted. This is another feature in our daily television line-up. While there are male and female feminists, the female majority takes the cake with this blatant double standard and they hold no shame. Why should they? Just as men compete with other men, women compete with other women and feminists are no exception. Since their organizations have immense political influence they run their media campaigns damning women who dare choose to model their looks. At the same time, feminist women will strut their stuff in clubs and bars, eager to fill their anger/pity quota for the day by scoffing at any male who attempts to even talk to them. After a hard day of turning down any man that doesn’t grovel at their feet, feminists will return to their blogs and support groups asking questions such as why are men always staring at my chest? As if having their breasts sticking out had nothing to do with it.

The stereotypes I have been pumping out may seem a bit far fetched but as with my recent revelation that feminists deny and are genuinely ignorant of the obvious double standards within physically demanding professions, I have noticed that when it comes to stereotypes, feminists deny them but embrace them at the same time.

I personally do not believe in objectification based on the simple fact that everyone who is supposedly objectified be they a man or a woman chooses to do whatever it is someone else feels is objectifying them. Claiming that you know what’s best for someone is a job for parents, not feminists, and should be directed towards children, not adults. When men and women who are supposedly objectified deny their objectification, feminists will be the first to tell the women that they are being objectified but don’t know it. Basically feminists feel they have become the authority on what women can and can’t do. Furthermore they feel that whatever they claim is a form of male oppression, even when it makes absolutely no sense, is nonetheless male oppression. While I don’t believe in objectification, for those who do it is obvious that if women are indeed being objectified, then so are men as they are subjected to the same performances as women.

However, since I don’t feel anyone is being objectified or exploited, unless they truly are forced to do these things, the whole notion, created by feminists, is ludicrous.

  1. What does women spending so many trillion a year have to do with male dominated movie audiences? It doesn’t. Women’s spending habits has nothing to do with movie theatre attendence. Your misogyny knows no bounds yet you claim misandry? You’re a poor example of an men’s rights advocate due to the blatent anti-female rhetoric that dominates your entire blog.

    • “What does women spending so many trillion a year have to do with male dominated movie audiences?”

      When you learn to read something before you respond to it then maybe you will get an answer that hasn’t already been said.

      Moron.

      “Your misogyny knows no bounds yet you claim misandry?”

      Seeing as how you have no instance of me displaying any misogyny we can both agree you are an ignorant fucktard.

      Booyahka bitch.

  2. Again, you have not shown the percentage of money that males have spent on films nor that they are truly dominated by female viewers. you have listed a total amount of spending (where you got this exact figure is unknown). You have not given the amount of attendance of films by males vs. females. As we know, most directors are male and a good percentage of films have of course target audiences. Where is your figure that shows exactly how much money each sex spends on films? You don’t. You don’t really have anything valid to add. I’ve seen plenty of good MRA sites that have better percentiles than yours. Instead you decide that since you cannot come up with valid replies, to engage in personal attacks. I’m only trying to help you see that you need to come up with better statistics but you have attacked me so you are no brother in the fight against feminism but rather a cowards who cannot stand criticism.

    • “Again, you have not shown the percentage of money that males have spent on films nor that they are truly dominated by female viewers.”

      Because I didn’t claim that films were dominated by female viewers. I claimed that TELEVISION was dominated by female viewers, and it is. I claimed that women spend more money than men on consumer goods, and they do. And both of those claims are linked to statistics. Agree or disagree, matters not to me, just don’t come here calling me a woman hater just because you don’t agree with what I say. The viewing percentages of films had nothing to do with the subject of this article. The subject of this article is objectification, something I don’t personally believe in, and if you want to follow the feminist outlines of what objectification is then you can’t claim that “evil men” are routinely objectifying women in the media. My only mention of movies was to convey the fact that there are female writers and directors, even feminist directors, who make movies targeted towards men, women, or both that have women stripping down and showing skin.

      So the whole “men objectify women” claim is nonsense. Because women choose to do these things just like men.

      However if you or feminists want to decide for these people that they are being objectified, you can’t deny that men are objectified as well, so your whole bullshit “patriarchy” conspiracy (if you are a feminist) with men objectifying women falls apart.

      Again this was all said in the article.

      “Instead you decide that since you cannot come up with valid replies, to engage in personal attacks.”

      Uh huh. Yeah, I engaged in personal attacks because I can’t come up with figures. Right.

      I engaged in personal attacks because you did. Here is your personal attack. “Your misogyny knows no bounds yet you claim misandry?”

      Being called a woman hater is pretty personal don’t you think?

      As for my statistics, they are linked in the article. Maybe you should click them.

      The only coward I see here is you. I don’t know if you are a feminist and I don’t care. But you argue just like one.

      Anyone feminists disagree with is a misogynist. Whether that person has displayed any woman hatred or not.

  3. I never said anything about patriarchy but you are wrong if you believe that women are not objectified by men. A recent scientic study actually proved that the male brain sees females as objects. This can be found on the internet. The female brain does not work as the male brain does.
    I don’t believe you see many females catcalling and harrassing men on the streets and acting like males. You are in denial as far as that goes, in my opinion. I’ve never ever seen women behave while growing up in any shape or fashion as men do. My friends I grew up with used to talk about females like they were trash and good for nothing except sleeping with. I don’t believe females, at least the ones I’ve spoken with, exhibit that sort of behavior.
    Still you have not come up with any stats in reference to how many women actually view television. It is true women have purchasing power but so do men as far as that goes.
    Obviously you do not feel comfortable when confronted with a view that doesn’t coincide with your views. I used to be the same way.
    I thought this site was to exchange ideas but apparently not! My mistake.

  4. “but you are wrong if you believe that women are not objectified by men.”

    Because you say so right? Men don’t see women as objects. The concept is impossible. An object is a stick or a table. A woman is a human being. Some men may see women as sexual conquests or a means to a sexually gratifying end but seeing them as objects is in fact impossible. And some women view men as sexual conquests and a means to a sexually gratifying end as well. Seeing them as a sexual object is also impossible. That is a masturbation device such as a doll or the like, not a living breathing person. Whoever thought up the whole “object” concept when describing objectification got it wrong. That, among the fact that everyone people claim to be objectified are doing whatever they are doing of their own free will, some proud of doing it, is why I personally don’t believe in objectification to begin with. However, since I know my opinion can’t account for all I respect the fact that people believe in the concept. But in that sense, men are objectified just like women.

    “A recent scientic study actually proved that the male brain sees females as objects.”

    So a recent study proves that I as a man see women as objects. I’m supposed to let a recent study tell me what I think.

    “The female brain does not work as the male brain does.”

    That’s nothing new.

    “I don’t believe you see many females catcalling and harrassing men on the streets and acting like males”

    I don’t see women acting like males, because they are females. But you seem to think that cat calling and the like is exclusively male, which reveals your bias because it is not. Also approaching a woman and telling her how good looking you think she is, is not harassment. Continually bothering someone after that person tells you to stop is harassment and both males and females are guilty of this. Also don’t bother going down the “but men shout out things like ‘hey bitch’ or bark at women” road because women do the same. They may not scream “hey bitch” as frequently but they scream out “hey baby” and an assortment of other things. I see women cat call and I see women slapping men on the ass and feeling up their chests and their groins. Happens to me all the time and every man I know. The difference is most men appreciate flirtatious attention from women so they don’t complain as much. But the outline for objectification is still the same. Finally, it is a part of human biology for us to mate. We are not bound by our biology but we can still be influenced by it. Men are programmed to mate. When we see women we let them know we are interested. Some women see a guy saying hello and asking for her number after a short conversation as an annoyance. While most men see this attention as something good. Why? Because men are programmed to spread their seed and women are programmed to find the best seed spreader lol so women are more picky about who they would like attention from. But like I said humans aren’t bound by their biology so while men may cat call more it still doesn’t change the fact that women do it too and not some small insignificant amount either. A lot of women do it.

    “You are in denial as far as that goes, in my opinion.”

    Well your opinion is wrong. Because I have not shown denial about anything that can be proven. Even if men cat call more it does not mean that men are the only sex that objectify because both sexes cat call and harass.

    “I’ve never ever seen women behave while growing up in any shape or fashion as men do.”

    That is a vague statement, which has little meaning. If you intend for it to apply to your whole “men are the only ones who cat call and harass” argument then you must have lived a sheltered life.

    “My friends I grew up with used to talk about females like they were trash and good for nothing except sleeping with”

    Women do the same thing.

    “I don’t believe females, at least the ones I’ve spoken with, exhibit that sort of behavior.”

    Because of your obvious bias. You know the internet where you say that “study” is? You can find all of the women acting like those nasty “males” on there if your bias goggles are making it too hard for you to see it on the streets or in clubs.

    “Still you have not come up with any stats in reference to how many women actually view television”

    Yes. I did. It is in my article and it is also on the internet. If you don’t want to click my reference then you can look it up yourself.

    Women watch more T.V. than men, fact.

    “It is true women have purchasing power but so do men as far as that goes.”

    I didn’t say women have more purchasing power. I said they spend more money on consumer goods. And I have a link to back up that claim in the article.

    “Obviously you do not feel comfortable when confronted with a view that doesn’t coincide with your views”

    I’m perfectly comfortable with diversity.

    I just don’t like it when people slander me as a woman hater, ignore the point of my argument, ignore my references, twist what I have said, and then end their nonsense with some smug self righteous gibberish such as “Obviously you do not feel comfortable when confronted with a view that doesn’t coincide with your views”

    “I used to be the same way.”

    You still are.

    “I thought this site was to exchange ideas but apparently not! My mistake.”

    You haven’t presented any ideas. You have only slandered me, the entire male sex, twisted some of my words, and then proclaimed yourself right and me wrong with no evidence for any of your nonsense.

    Now that I have gotten your paragraph of drivel out of the way let me say this, and after this if you come back here doing the same crap I have listed above you will be ignored.

    Women are not morally superior to men. That is the first thing you need to get through your head. And before you think you have some ammunition for your reply, I already know you did not specifically say that women are morally superior to men but you have made the ridiculous statement that objectification is exclusively a male on female occurrence.

    It is not.

    Women objectify men just as men objectify women. Not in the exact same manner because men and women are different but it does happen, all the time.

    But setting aside that obvious fact that your bias allows to ignore.

    You have again sidestepped the subject of my article.

    Are women objectified?

    That was the first question in my article, not who objectifies more, but are women objectified at all and then I went through a lengthy piece explaining how and why women are not objectified in the media and if they are, anyone who claims they are must also admit that men are objectified in the media as men are displayed in the same fashion as women. As sex objects. However, these men and women choose to do this and just because you or I disagree with what they are doing doesn’t give us the right to just decide for them that they are objectified.

    I gave facts. Women watch more T.V. than men and spend more money than men on material things.

    These two points were brought up for one reason, which I explained in the article and you ignored, because you cannot refute it. Instead you have pulled so many straw men out of my article and laced them with one sided “men are bad” bigotry the refutation of those straw men was almost effortless.

    But anyway, the two points about women spending more money and watching more tv was to illustrate the fact that companies and television corporations provide their products to the ones who buy them the most.

    That means, consumer goods and the stores that sell them are designed with women in mind because women are the ones who purchase them the most. It is a simple case of companies making their products marketable to the people who buy them the most.

    Television commercials and television programs are mostly tailored for women because women watch more T.V. than men. If women don’t like what they see then they won’t watch so the media industry obviously formats its programming to please its largest viewing demographic.

    Now please, if all you want to do here is present a “men are the only ones that objectify” argument and claim that women don’t because of a study that says men’s brains make them objectify and women’s brains make them the perfect examples of maturity…then I suggest you take a gander at girls gone wild and then come back and tell me that women don’t cat call, or feel men up, or make derogatory statements in their sexual advances.

    Women do this towards men AND women.

    Now like I said, I am done arguing over your straw men.

    Focus on the subject of the damn article or go away.

    And when I say go away I don’t mean come back with the smug attitude you’ve held so far, make some “I’m leaving because you just don’t ‘get it'” statement, and leave with a “I thought this site was to exchange ideas but apparently not! My mistake” as if you hold some higher plateau of thought.

    While I do have time to argue back and forth refuting nonsense all day it doesn’t mean I feel like doing it.

  5. “While I do have time to argue back and forth refuting nonsense all day it doesn’t mean I feel like doing it.”

    Someone is unemployed and has too much time on their hands.
