I've never had a problem with sexuality. I have a problem with using it for the sake of the male ego or male dollar when statistics show it doesn't count. It makes us robotic.

Heres a question for you Patty and anyone else:
Imagine that Women some how some way were granted complete and total authority on all things that featured female sexuality(movies/ ads/ TV/ music/ Music videos ect). There would always be a woman who had the final say and there would be some sort of tax that would be implemented where the revenue would go towards female empowerment organizations ect... essentially all the money that is generated now would benefit woman as a whole.
Would you be OK with this hypothetical scenario?
If you use sexuality for empowerment, then its all good IMO. As long as it doesn't involve abusing someone of course. But if it is used for financial gaine, IE, prostitution, P O R N...I have no problem with it. Bet even in those industries, it is the male that is catered to...not the women. But when you have books like 50 Shades of Grey and anything Zane writes become best sellers, you have to know we have power and the power is in catering to what we want to see, hear and read.
I hear you...
I just wonder who would be the authority on what meets the right "empowerment" criteria ... it would be women but Women aren't one monolithic group...
Its sad to say.. but when you turn something into a business.. theres a point when it reaches a level where higher profit is more important than ethics .
I dont see this changing with women at the helm
