Are women and/or younger teens/children overly sexualized in today's media and society?

  • Yes of course, media is a channel used by women and girls to display themselves.

    Millions of women and young girls daily post their own pictures on the world web, displaying themselves as sexual items and or object. They do it by their own free well and eveyday by the millions. Its not the media doing it, its women themselves using the allowable methods to display themselves as such. Cant blame anything but yourself for this.

  • Yes, I'm sorry to say

    I'm a 16 year old guy and i'm disgusted by some of the things small children can get access to. Watch a comedy central story on snapchat and you'll know exactly what I mean. We need to treat women/girls with more respect as people because this kind of thing ruins relationships, reputations, and lives.

  • Hypersexualization is a massive problem.

    In today's society, although there are increasing numbers of people who are behind the bettering of how women are treated and portrayed in the media, there are still others who treat women moreso as sex objects then as real people. All you have to do is take a look at some of the magazines and advertisements (both print and television) to see that that women are, in fact, more than a little overly sexualized, not to mention younger teenagers. Even in teen magazines, some images are slightly more sexual than they need to be for the age of the models and the intended age range of the magazine.

  • No, i don't think so

    I believe that in some ways a man is to blame for this issue. But we also need to understand the fact that women also contribute to their own objectification. Go on any social media platform and you will find women that exploit themselves for all the world to see. Men then take that and think that its ok to view people in that way. So yes I personally believe that males are not completely at fault but women are not the victims here. It's a double-edged sword
