I found this website after reading about Buddy Franklin's clothing range being described as disrespectful to women, along with sexualizing and objectifying women. I'm a 35yo guy, pretty normal Aussie…Continue
"Perhaps, I'm being a male, but my mind is thinking; what is an actual solution? Or this more of a talk about the problems in the world thing?
Reading my girlfriend's Cleo mag there was a section on different pube types, and the percentage…"
"I won't mention what I prefer or don't prefer as that seems offensive. I just thought I'd be open if I'm going to comment on it.
To be honest, I'm not really sure what I'm meant to be joining in on or what I'm…"
"Interesting conversation. Male opinion here - although maybe not desired. Seems to be a bit of man bashing going on.
On the topic of the thread, to me 14 seems too young to be taking girls to Brazilian Butterfly for waxing. But I can also understand…"
"@Fiona - I don't have children yet. But I do have 2 much younger sisters from my Dad's later marriage. They are 6 & 8, and they are the most important people to me in the world. I love them so much! As for dancing sexy moves - they do…"
"@Lorraine. I see your point with that illustration. Personally I'm against introducing children to religion, especially if it's religion of the Jesus Camp variety. So yes, if they are adults, find religion, and decide to become a Priest of…"
"I personally think Sex & the City is probably more to blame for Brazilians than porn. However it's a trend I personally like, and that's not influenced by porn. I've just experienced all types, and prefer it.
I also hate the…"
"@Sue - I agree that people think it's no big deal. Yesterday I was looking at some of Australia's Miss Universe contestants and I asked the guys at the office if they thought it was objectifying women. And they all looked at me strange and…"
"I always find it funny that boyfriends get the blame. It just seems to smack of very outdated beliefs about female sexuality. Like they young women are totally pure and innocent, and they have these boyfriends that manipulate them. That's BS in…"
"Thanks everyone! This is kind of what I wanted, an intelligent discussion. I'm open-minded, looking to understand things, and certainly not stirring for kicks.
@Collective Shout - I understand all the negative impacts, but are there some…"
"Sure she can complain, it's a free country.
I'm not sure that I agree that Ralph is pornography though. The most they show is women in bikinis. You'd get the same from a Target catalogue, perhaps minus the seductive poses.
Is that the…"
"@Jess - No need to get defensive. It's a free country, I can ask questions if I want to.
I think it's a bit of a long draw to compare women in bikinis to rapists and murderers. I wonder why it bothers you so much.
"Is personal choice a factor?
Talking only about over 18 adults, if a girl wants to do bikini modeling, or nude shots, or seductive poses for ads; should she be allowed to?
It feels like a lot of the concepts in this forum are done from a perspective…"
"Yeah fair enough.
I find it interesting the big deal people make of some things, especially nudity. I like to travel and when you are in Europe it feels very different. You watch television and a body wash commercial will have a naked woman and you…"
"I've got to say that you sound like a really mature, balanced and intelligent person.
About the media I'm not really convinced. And I think it's very easy for people to have this mindset where things are getting worse, like there is…"
