Well compare Harley's costume to any other female in fiction
Harley was more of an outlier than anything, females in media, even scantily clad ones, were about on par with other ones
I'm not going to say that women can't wear sexy clothes or be portrayed as such, but my point was that they won't always want to be in that clothing
After all, how many people over the age of let's say 30 or 40 were wearing those costumes?>>107399593
The context in which males get objectified can't be applied to the context in which females get objectified in most situations
Like the example I gave>>107399594
What sales figures are you reading?
I honestly want to know, because everything I've read about the past decade is that sales have been up>>107399616
Right, because one is an outlandish cartoon in which Yogi is not actually addicted
And the other is real life
We can study the effect it has on people anon, we have done so>>107399631
You could also, i dunno, listen to women?
I'm not coming up with this based on my own perspective--this entire argument isn't about one specific opinion being applied to the whole of people who didn't come up with it>by your own logic. You lack the perspective to do so
please quote me where I said that>>107399765
The power fantasy isn't about sex because then it'd be a sex fantasy
People in comics don't do the right thing and stop crime because it gets them babes--if it was a sex fantasy, then the focus would be on the relationships, not on the crime fighting>You're talking ab out catering to a subset that doesn't. At the expense of those that do.
But I'm not saying that women can't be scantily clad, I'm saying that it shouldn't be in a way that reinforces negative attitudes towards women>>107399800
But that implies it was made for any specific person or group of people
If you don't like the way in which Sex and the City portrays men, you don't have to put up with it, anon, just because you think it's made for girls
