  1. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you just can do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, that is great blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  2. How men and women are objectified are definitely related, but I think it is very important to avoid comparing oppression like this. It pits those oppressed against each other in an unproductive fight that, in the end, only weakens progressive movements. Saying one version of objectification is “worse” or “the worst” or anything that implies other versions of objectification are less important does this, and implies that people should be focusing on the other, “worse” oppression and not the other one. I know this is rather simplistic – we can advocate against more than one oppression at a time – but I think it is important to avoid anything that could devolve into another round of “oppression olympics” where the only winners are the oppressors.

    That is the best blog for anybody who desires to search out out about this topic. You understand so much its nearly onerous to argue with you (not that I really would need…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just nice!
