it’s actually irreverent whether or not ~men are sexualized too~ because to sexualize a woman, you make her weaker and more vulnerable, and to sexualize a man, you make him stronger and more capable.
so even if men were sexualized ~just as much as women~ (which ps they’re not) that’s still misogyny.
we would never ever ask a man to WEAKEN himself to be appealing, and yet we demand women weaken themselves so much and often just to be acceptable, that we don’t even notice we’re doing it.
a sexy man is good at being a hero, and a sexy woman is good at being a victim.
and if you don’t think that’s fucked up, i don’t know what to say to you.
