How does demanding that either a male or female dress appropriately in professional environments objectify that individual’s body; it’s beyond me. Imagine if you turn on your television and one out of three male journalists has his shirt buttoned down, so far as to see the outline of the muscles that comprises his chest, or any flab that accompanies it, or unsightly hairs he may have, whatever it might be — wouldn’t you think something was fundamentally wrong with so many men presenting themselves in that manner? To say the least, it would be a clear case of seductive journalism , and I’m confident many women would find the behavior distasteful.
In this article titled “cleavage is not offensive, but outrage about it certainly is,” the author Chitra Ramaswamy, endeavors to defend the idea that complaining about women’s cleavage objectifies the female body. Are you serious!
