Good feminism would not turn women into boards… Ask yourself which part of society objectifies women?

By that logic, any football fan who paints letters on his chest is objectifying himself, too. And that’s just idiotic.

Except that men are not objectified in this society (or any other…) when women are in the worst ways ever.
It’s not in using objectification to pass a political message that you are gonna fight against it.

and I wanted to add:
“Rape Culture is an environment in which rape is prevalent and in which sexual violence against women is normalized and excused in the media and popular culture.  Rape culture is perpetuated through the use of misogynistic language, the objectification of women’s bodies, and the glamorization of sexual violence, thereby creating a society that disregards women’s rights and safety” X 

I’m a rape survivor and I’m here to tell you you do not have a strong grasp on what feminism or sexual objectification or rape culture is.

a woman being sexual does not equate to her suddenly and magically becoming just a sex object. 

DON’T GET ME WRONG rape is engrained into our culture, as well as victim blaming, and sexual objectification is just around every corner, BUT

THIS PICTURE IS NOT AN INSTANCE OF IT

Sexual objectification is the act of treating a person merely as an instrument of sexual pleasure, making them a “sex object”. 
A woman writing a slogan on her chest is not objectifying herself. Objectification comes into play when there is dehumanization. THIS ISN’T. 
You are using the definition of sexual objectification TOO BROADLY.
A lot of advertisements that use sexual objectification focus on like one body part, or use the woman as a prop.
HERE SHE IS THE SUBJECT. SHE IS NOT BEING USED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE THAN TO BE THE SUBJECT OF A PHOTO.
IT’S JUST NUDITY
WITH PAINT ON HER CHEST.
THIS IS ALSO AN ARTISTIC PICTURE.

"The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl."
