Finally! Something I've been wanting to get done for a while, but haven't figured out how to do it…until now!
You ever hear the countless messages and campaigns by feminists and activists that emphasize and hammer in how horrible it is to objectify someone?
Well, unless you've had your head in the sand for the past few decades, of course you have!
But have you ever stopped to think about how overgeneralized and downright absurd it is?
As social and interactive beings, we objectify non-stop, both consciously and unconsciously. This is common sense. From the basic actions like reading, writing, speaking, playing, to even more complex actions such as dancing, driving, gaming, everything we do is in some way a form of objectification.
Some people like to be catcalled, others not. Some like to be spoken to, and some just want to listen. Some want public attention, and some want privacy. Some want to be fantasized about sexually, and others don't want to be thought of that way.
So as long as it’s not disrespectful, unwelcome, or against required permission, there is absolutely nothing wrong with objectification of any kind.

If male characters are more well dressed and protected, and are treated as a person, while women are more revealed and less protected as sexual objects (rather than person), then what do you think? I'm just curious.
