Every day we are bombarded by images of perfection. Airbrushed models, and body standards that are impossible in real life. The objectification of women is so rampant that we have almost become blind to it. Our television screens are graced with hoohas and tatas to sell everything from sandwiches to post it notes. Usually with the idea that it’s “all in good fun.”

Well this chick is tired of seeing all this craziness. That’s why I was honored to be a part of the #womennotobjects campaign. They have a POWERFUL video that really opens your eyes to just how much of today’s media looks as women as a piece of meat to entice and persuade people. I thought I had a good idea just how much we are objectified as women, but watching this video has brought my eyes wide open. Check it out.
Wow, just wow is what I thought after seeing that video. I mean my boobs have super powers but I don’t think those super powers include being able to sell someone a product that doesn’t get used by said boobs.
Sure you can say that men are objectified as well, but here’s a question for you. Why has it taken so long to have this conversation? Why did it take men being objectified for us to start talking about the awful stereotypes we are putting out there for our daughters, mothers, and sisters to see? You can’t pick up a magazine, drive by a billboard, watch television without constantly being bombarded by the same messages over and over. Women are supposed to be thin, big busted, and beautiful. If you aren’t one of those things then you are a failure.
Well, here’s a challenge for you guys! Help get the conversation started. Tweeted, share on Facebook using the hashtag #womennotobjects to get this video out and get people talking about how we can change this. Let’s empower women. Let’s empower our daughters, mothers and sisters.
