First, I must say that this thread, and it's companion, has the potential to be a great resource and spark for discussion on beauty, body and anatomy, and moving this here from the hidden girls forum is certainly a good thing, thank you.
I do however agree somewhat with Arttorney in that I found your initial statement somewhat offending, as well as some of the posts made by women in one of the threads I'm assuming you were talking about, daestwen.
I mean, why is it (almost) always assumed, that if pictures of a attractive woman is posted by a man on the internet, it is for the purpose of looking at her as a piece of meat? Are we men incapable of looking at women without stripping them of value? Seriously, you'd be surprised at how often we guys get that thrown at us, if we dare discuss a womans looks, we're being assholes.
Obviously some of the comments and pictures posted before were out of line, but sometimes I do get offended when someone jumps in with the "men objectifying women" angle. The thread I saw did not at all seem serious, it was a bunch of over the top "boobs!" comments and if anything was a parody of objectification.
