Re: #31 - Chat: The Avengers
Ya know, I don't get this either. Yes, Scarlett Johansson is a beautiful woman and that fact is well and prominently displayed. But there is a knee jerk feminism implied in that cartoon that's kind of ridiculous. Are we objectifying Scarlett Johansson and putting her in outfits and poses that make it easier for us to fantasize having sex with her? Yeeesss.
Are we somehow not doing that with the guys? Cause we kinda are.
As one of the people here who is actually attracted to guys, no. It's not even close to the same level. Go look at the cover of a romance novel for women, then at this poster again. THAT is sexualization and objectification of the male form, THIS is not. You're confusing the fact that there are good looking men on the poster with the idea that this means they must be innately sexualized, but the fact that they're not posing anything like Black Widow shows that's nonsense. Because if just being good looking were all that mattered, she wouldn't have to pose like that either.
