    As soon as I see the word "objectified" used to described an image of a person in a sexual context, I assume that the person using it has no idea what they`re talking about. If they only care when the person is female, I assume that they are a sexist hypocrite as well.

    This method hasn`t failed me yet.

    PsychGeek. I agree, women are often objectified in advertising as merely aesthetic, however, men are more often than not depicted as dullards who are only interested in sports/women. Neither sex has the monopoly in the "woe is me" stakes.

    Well, it`s failed you now. I know exactly what I`m talking about, thank you very much. It`s these types of advertisements that perpetuate the existence of eating disorders in young women (and in young men, might I add). This ad makes a woman look like an object to be used and then thrown away, not like a person.

    Before you make judgments on the words I use in my comments, do your research. I again will recommend "Killing Us Softly", it`s a great film about the objectification of women in advertising.

    _____________________________________

    You are a sexist ass--it`s men like you who give men everywhere a bad name. I am an attractive woman but I do not like the attention I get because of it. If you think all attractive women like attention, you are SADLY mistaken.

    Conversely, if you think the only women who complain are unattractive, you are ALSO SADLY mistaken. There is no denying that women (and men) are used and objectified in the media, and for you to sit there on your pompous ass and say "all women like attention" is just wrong and patriarchal.

    I`m not saying one sex is objectified more than the other. what i`m saying is that it DOES exist, and men who say things like "women like attention, the only ones who complain are the ones who nobody pays attention to" are nothing but self-absorbed, macho jerks who are nothing special themselves.

    Dear Dextrine,

    Much like men, there are some women who are extraverted and some that are introverted. Some women like attention, some don`t. Also, people have moods. Sometimes an individual is in a look at me mood, sometimes they`re more retiring. If you employed a wee bit of cognition before posting, you may not come across as so daft. Secondarily, much like women, there are some men that are not daft, and some that are. You seem to lean towards the latter.

    Regards,
    LadyPele :)

    @ ikit5: even though this picture on the surface seems amusing and harmless, its consumers are still subconsciously absorbing messages about how women are to be looked at and treated.

    There are a ton of studies looking at the messages in advertisements, and a lot of them show that men who look at a large number of sexual advertisements tend to take a patriarchal, objective view of women, even if they hadn`t done so before.

    Psychgeek,
    "I`m not saying one sex is objectified more than the other"

    You`re original comment, then, is misleading. It suggests you feel women are disproportionately objectified:

    "yet another way in which women are objectified".

    Perhaps if you had re-thought your comment, you would not have received such a response!

    Hi PsychGeek :) I hope this gets well recieved. Is this the environment to be drawing your battle lines? Is this the right demographic? I agree with you, however, defenses go up when out and out attacks are made. Is that going to constructively contribute to the solution? It`s agreed - in academic circles - that the patriarchal skeleton is still in place. Who cares if some bumkin can`t see it? Shouldn`t the main focus be employing constructive stradegies to work towards a fairer future?

    kingdomCome--actually my comments make perfect sense. I never once said that women are objectified MORE than men, but this is yet another advertisement in which a women is turned into a sexual object. Saying "yet another" does not imply that there are more ads of objectified women than men--it means just what it says: "yet another". There are plenty of ads out there demeaning to men, especially ads for jeans and underwear.

    Stop judging how I word my comments, kthx.

    I was just going to ask whether or not this effect was ever proved from sexual advertising, so you read my mind there. Do you have any linkable sources to these studies? I`ll try google-ing it.

    I agree, LadyPele, 100% :) I think what frustrates me more than anything is that there are still SO many people out there who don`t see a problem with the way both sexes are portrayed in ads, and the types of messages these send out. I just saw this as an opportunity to get it out there, that this is not as much amusing as it is angering (at least to those of us who can see what the ad is REALLY saying).

    @ coconutnut: i was really going to try and put some links on here, but the studies I have found require log-in information in order to view the actual studies :( however, I know they exist because I wrote a huge paper on this very topic for a sociology class last semester. If you go to a website called "psychINFO", you may be able to access the studies i found.

    I didn`t use anything like Wikipedia or random Google answers for my paper, they were all from credited, peer-reviewed journals.

    sorry for the lack of linkable evidence!! :(

    I disagree.

    "This ad makes a woman look like an object to be used and then thrown away, not like a person."

    If that`s how you see it, that`s your problem. Personally, I think you`re talking rubbish.

    "Before you make judgments on the words I use in my comments, do your research."

    Done already, thank you. I am much more familiar with feminism than I`d like to be. I know a bit about the use of propaganda, too, and there`s a lot of that in feminism.

    Like pretty much everything else regarding feminism, I think this is projection. You view women as objects (you say that yourself) and you project that view onto everyone. But you`re wrong to do so.

    "every single man on here is a sexist jerk who views women as objects! All men are sexist, amoral pigs!"

    but no, that`s not at all what I said. I only called one guy sexist, because his comment was indeed very sexist.

    I don`t at all view women as objects, I don`t know how you got that from my comments. I think ADVERTISEMENTS portray women as objects, and becasue of that many men are adopting sexist ATTITUDES toward women.

    Will you PLEASE read my comments before you try to make yourself sound smart?? thanks! :)

    PsychGeek - I didn`t say your comments don`t make sense. Nor did I say you thought or stated that there are more adverts objectifying women than men.
    I said your comments -suggested- that, and that suggestion is the reason for the response on here.
    Being male I appreciate the "hackles up" response to the phrasing of your comment, I was just pointing it out.
    If the purpose of your comment was to point out the pitfalls of sexual objectification in advertisement in general, then there was no need for the word "women" in your original comment. Moreover, "person" would have made the point stronger.

    And "Stop judging how I word my comments"?
    I`m not really sure how else to judge what you are saying...

    I`ve heard before how advertising has an impact on peoplesbeliefs, values, and behavior
    There was also a study done about how men who were shown alluring images of women beforehand were more likely to think of women as objects.
    It would be interesting to see what kind of effect this type of advertising (vague body parts/ sexual shapes) has on men and women.

    @Psychgeek: First of all, I agree that studies do show that a person primed with this sort of ad will simply put tend to be more mysoginistic than a control. However priming is not a long term effect and I don`t believe that any long term studies exist that show that this sort of ad has a lasting impact on attitudes or behavior. I think that correlating these sort of ads to real problems that exist in our society is more speculative than scientific.

    I think that in the end the gender problems that do exist in our society come from a myriad of factors, and I think that trying to blame ads like this specifically or even saying that ads like this have a real impact is pushing it a bit.

    I think that this ad is more innocent than you build it up to be, and though I believe that some ads do cross the line, I think that it is dangerous to start reading too much into everything like you are doing. Once you start going down that road you end up removing freedom of speech and expression for

    the sake of protecting something that inherently cannot exist in a restrictive society.

    Ideals of beauty existed long before advertisements, and the fact of the matter is it is within human nature to view one thing as beautiful and one as not. Obviously we are not born with these preconceived ideas but what I`m trying to say is that maybe it is our ideals that create these ads and not these ads that create our ideals.

    I think that women`s rights still have a long way to go even in the more economically developped countries of the world, but there are more important battles to be fought than over a can of beer which frankly I find more clever than anything else.

    Only if you were raving, which you clearly aren`t. That would be far too crude and therefore counter-productive. Your far more subtle talk about men treating women as objects, about patriarchy, etc, is far more effective at promoting sexism.

    "I don`t at all view women as objects, I don`t know how you got that from my comments. I think ADVERTISEMENTS portray women as objects"

    Only to people who see it as such.

    If I see a picture of a woman in a sexual context, I see a picture of a woman in a sexual context. You see an object. If you didn`t, you wouldn`t be saying that`s what`s in the picture.

    One thing I hate is when people always over-complicate simple things. Sure, it`s objectifying women, but go take a look at IAB`s front page and you`ll find at least 3 more topics like this. Sex sells, everyone knows that, I would expect everyone already found these things normal.. Why get so upset about it?

    Over a dozen women have already replied in this topic, do you see them all ranting on about it?
    Everyone knows you are right, however, most of us do not like pointless discussions like this (that`s why you have so many people against you). Don`t get so worked up about these things, just laugh at them and go do something else, you`ll feel better that way.

    btw, this is my first post (i think). yay!

    It`s because I have studied sexual advertisements for over 2 years, have read countless studies regarding this topic, and have discussed this with numerous professors that I can confidently say that this ad, in my opinion, portrays women as objects.

    You`re right, I see an object in this picture. the only difference is that I don`t AGREE with the portrayal of women in this ad, and I have seen countless others like it.

    I do NOT see women as objects, so get that straight right now. I DO see objectification of women in advertisements, and, in my opinion, this is another example.

    Please stop twisting my words around. thanks.

    @ Canoas:

    while I see your point, I frankly don`t think this discussion is pointless. I see it as discussion. I am not angry, I am not a raving lunatic, and I am not going to go to bed with this on my mind. I do have a life, you know. However, for the time being, this entertains me and I wanted to express my opinion about it.

    I frankly don`t give a rat`s behind if no other woman on here rants about it. I will say what I want to say, no matter who agrees or disagrees. At the end of the day, I know none of this matters. But who cares? It`s still discussion.

    I think one of the things that bothers me in the way that you write is that you seem to believe that studying in a field gives you a right to be extremely condescending to others and exremely immutable in your rhetoric.

    I actually created an account just so I could respond to this rediculous thread. I couldn`t agree with Shellie more!! I think that taking an ad like this so seriously creates more problems than the ad itself.

    Can`t we all just take it easy and enjoy the site?

    I just wanna add that I think you`re a moron if you think this ad portrays women as objects. If anything, it portrays objects as women, seeing as how the can is inanimate and all. So therefore, the worst this would be doing for women is showing how guys subconsciously want them.

    I love that after the huge blurbs that I`ve written all you find to say is a reprint of something that I wrote you.
    Anyway you may be studying psych, but you write as if you have the backing of the whole field which just isn`t the case. There is no general consensus in the field of psychology supporting your rather extreme views.
    Your views are your personal opinion, which is fine, but what isn`t fine is that you use what you perceive as your superior knowledge in a field to defend those opinions in a very narrow way.
    A lot of your argument comes down to: trust me, I`m a psych major. Which is extremely faulty logic.

    actually, my logic doesn`t come down to "trust me, i`m a psych major." if you had actually read my comments, you would have seen that even though I tried to get links to studies on here, you`d have to have log-in access to be able to view them. so i couldn`t put any actual proof on here.

    and yes, actually, there IS general consensus that there is objectification of women in advertising, and if you KNOW i`m wrong then please give me the proof that says so.

    my views are not radical/extreme, but are mere fact: there is objectification of women/men in the media. if you think i`m wrong, i do believe you`re mistaken. yet AGAIN, i will reference the film "Killing Me Softly". at least read summaries of it, if you can`t see the actual film.

    However, this discussion died a little while ago, and frankly i`m tired of it.

    I did read everything you said and though, as I stated, there are studies that have shown that men tend to dehumanize certain pictures of women and studies that show that men primed with images of ads react in a certain way, but I would be happy to have you reference a peer reviewed study showing that ads objectify women...

    In fact saying that "ads objectify women" is completely meaningless. I think what you are trying to say is that certain ads portray women in a way that makes the average male viewer objectify the woman/women in the ad. But even then what does objectify really mean and what are the implications of men dehumanizing the women in ads? Yes I know that these exist, namely Susan Fiske`s recent study. But even her conclusions do not attack the ad industry in a way remotely like you do...

    As someone who has a psych degree and with a mother and sister who have phds in psych, I think I`m in a pretty good position to say that nothing annoys me more than a person who is working towards a degree in psych and who is so completely full of themselves and thinks they now understand the human psyche and every aspect of our society better than mere mortals. I think you need to be taken down a notch, if not for your own sake than for the sake of people around you...

    He said "see it works both ways...", meaning he was using what you quoted as an example of how claiming to know everything because you study in a field is inherently annoying. I suppose you were too busy thinking of a clever way to insult him (Jackass? That`s what you came up with?) to actually read his entire comment.

    Jesus, guys, let`s just enjoy a f*cking beer can.

    Guys like seeing women. Especially sexy women. That`s a fact. It`s true in all animals. Humans are no different.

    Create a reference to a sexy woman on a beer can, it`ll draw the target audience (men, obviously) to the can.

    Hey, it`s funny. Let`s just enjoy that for what it is, a clever idea from some ad-exec trying to boost his sales.


    BTW... F*cking spammer. Definitely the wrong place for that.

    Holy drating Ass Crackers! I can`t believe you all fought over something so trivial. I mean seriously this is a site for people to be ENTERTAINED when they are BORED. Not fighting over women being objectified, people stating that other people don`t know poo, and people calling each other names. Now I understand where PsycheGeek was coming from and you made a valid point, but did you and everyone else really need to escalate the argument into 4 pages? And as for Xavroche`s: Tuesday, October 20, 2009 5:02:09 PM and Tuesday, October 20, 2009 5:00:47 PM posts; You are correct also. But really, was this argueing really required? Now I believe that we should all agree to disagree and enjoys the wonders of IAB. So lets turn over a new leaf and lets not argue over some decorated cans of beer (PsychGeek I didn`t say that to piss you off or anything so sorry if that didn`t come out right). So from this post up I don`t want any more arguments. Thank You and lets enjoy our favorite site IAB!

When they can`t deny looking at a mans ass and "objectifying" them they defend themselves by saying they are women so that makes it okay to check out guys and look em up and down. Women are objects!

    No, no! They are the embodiment of the heteropatriarchal oppression of wimmin!

    Oh, wait. They are just beer cans.

    PsychGeek did, way back, make a genuine point in passing about the effect of images in the media on self-esteem. But it was so swamped in the burble about the (actually non-existent) objectification that it was lost.

    Buzzwords often undermine any argument when anyone who gives it some thought can see that they`re bull.

    Looking at an image of someone with some sexual content is nowhere near the same as thinking of everyone who happens to be of the same sex as that person as being objects, literally dehumanising them. Worse, actually - placing them beneath all animals, beneath all *plants*.

    It`s buzzword bullpoo for dishonest and deceitful politics used to promote irrational prejudice.

    That`s what I`m arguing against.

    There is only one solution for this crazy social expectancy constricted world. We`ll all paint our skin rainbow then dress as ambiguous cave men with animal attributes so that we are psychotic AND equals.

    Then we could do something constructive like ride dinosaurs, because I think that extinction should be reversable by global cooperation.

    I`m not really sure what my point was, no.
