So Seductive Journalism Actually Honors A Female’s Body
How does demanding that either a male or female dress appropriately in professional environments objectify that individual’s body is 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, flab, or hairy, whatever it might be; wouldn’t you think something was fundamentally wrong with so many men allowed to present themselves in such manner? It would be a clear case of seductive journalism.
The operative expression is “professional environments,” not club scene. 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!
