Men are ob­jec­ti­fied too

Sunday Express - - LETTERS -

Fem­i­nists are con­stantly com­plain­ing about the fact that so much ad­ver­tis­ing to­day “ob­jec­ti­fies” women and de­means them.

But I don’t think I have ever seen an ad­ver­tise­ment that ob­jec­ti­fies women any­where near as much as the Paco Ra­banne ad­ver­tise­ment for its Pure XS men’s fra­grance ob­jec­ti­fies males.

In the ad­vert, a writhing group of women col­lapse in a heap af­ter watch­ing a young man strip out of his clothes whilst he is run­ning a bath.

I am not aware that there have been any cries of out­rage over it. But then there wouldn’t be, would there?

This ap­pears to be a fine ex­am­ple of dou­ble stan­dards. Robert Read­man, Bournemouth
