Feminist uproar over Objectification in Cancer ResearchOctober 18, 2012
Feminists are pissed off once more at ‘teh Menz’ blatant misogyny in creating an iPhone APP of topless girls to be sold on iTunes with proceeds going towards Prostate Cancer research. They’re horrified over the fact that innocent young women are being used solely for their boobage to raise funds for a cause that has little to no impact on women! They’re indignant over the fact that boobs are being used to raise awareness for something other than boobs of all things!
The video on the website promoting the app shows women in various ‘roleplay‘ outfits and varying states of undress, seductive poses and heavy sexual innuendo with them handling props and toys mimicking parts of the male body. Each of the women seductively suggests to the men to get regular prostate checkups to maintain their health and keep all their working parts in order.
It’s Facebook page went viral and got 2.5 million views in the first week alone — the campaign is back with more running off it’s slogan “hot, shirtless women talking about the importance of early detection for ‘keeping it up’.”
Women’s groups are furious that women are being used in such a blatantly sexually suggestive manner, to an app that can be accessed by anyone on iTunes. They state emphatically that this app sends a clear message to men that:
“…women are solely toys to be used, ogled and treated in a sexual manner at a moments notice, the amount of time required to turn on your phone. Men have always had access to porn, but now it’s gone mainstream and this vulgar display of objectification is now accepted in the name of Cancer awareness! Women are more than just sexually dressed up caricatures to be drooled over by men and the Cancer Society should know better!”
The Cancer Society of Canada has not responded to the comments yet. Full story link below.
Sorry. I had to.
Two of my favorite topics. Breast Cancer and Objectification.
Not only is it bad enough that:
- Breast Cancer is the [a]most over funded, [b]consumer co-opted, and [c]best treated cancers to date. If you have breast cancer your prognosis is pretty decent. Lung cancer… sucks to be you.
- Has a website that USED to be called ‘The Weekend to End Cancer‘ [it’s domain is still endcancer.ca betraying it’s original neutrality] was renamed to THIS [link] just a few months after my brother succumbed to Multiple Myeloma basically relegating his death to “Oh well, too bad, not a woman, we dont’t care” status, in effect giving me and my family a big middle finger
- It takes valuable research time and dollars away from lesser known, more harmful cancers.
But they also decide to go full on objectify mode with their fundraising.
Funny that. When i was growing up i was taught by my feminist overlords that men are the visual ones, the dirty nasty leering ogling drooling dogs, while the female snowflakes looked beyond the outer shell and looked at the inner goodness of a man and the quality of his character.
No, women are just as fucking visual if not moreso than men when it comes to attraction and accepting a mate, as OKCupid confirmed. This objectification and the reactions to hot hunky actors, sports athletes and music stars further solidifies it. The covers of romance novels and reactions to chiseled firefighters and hard bodies of Twilights wolfboy seal the deal. Women want their men just as hot if not moreso than their own sexual rank.
As Evan Marc Kratz says:
“It’s women, not men, who have unrealistic standards for the “average” member of the opposite sex.”
So let me ask then.. since the sphere has always taught me that what GAME is for a man, a HOT TIGHT FIT body is for a woman. The old dynamic that Men want hotness, Women want it’s equivalent in Alpha confidence and dominance and not so much looks. Now it appears that Women want that AND super hot gorgeous model 6 pack looks to go with GAME traits.
So what are HOT TIGHT FIT body women adding to the deal to balance out the unevenness of the scales? If it’s hot bod for hot bod trade… what do we men get for giving you the alpha confidence and dominance you crave?
Blowjobs on demand is a good start.
Well i got a little sidetracked, but there it is. Objectification. Alive and well and not one stupid fucking feminist in sight. Just like a cop, never around when you need one.
I want to quote someone very wise and knowledgeable right now:
