I found a great article by Rachel Watkins that I wanted to share. Watkins hits the nail on the head about the reaction in the press and on the Internet to a woman who objected to a T-shirt line being sold at PacSun.
I’ll say upfront that I too live in Utah, and while I consider myself moderately conservative, I am also a feminist. And yes, those two ideologies can co-exist within the same person.
Judy Cox, the woman who was branded as a conservative trying to censor PacSun, is a woman who took a stand against the sexual objectification of women, a subject that makes my blood boil. As Cox said, “I am a progressive, liberal woman and I am offended too. My body is not a way to sell T-shirts.”
Read the article and sound off. Is it okay to sexually objectify women? Do we want our daughters to grow up thinking they’re nothing but a pair of tits and a nice ass?
