Image Galleries > "Pictures of you with an RRS sign" - Why make it sexy?

I'm unclear on the message RRS is trying to project with this.

This world is suggestive and idolizes women, from an evolutionary standpoint, RRS should be working hard to remove the stigma around this sort of thing. One thing Christians have going for them (and i say this cautiously) is that they don't generally approve of women walking around projecting a strong sexual image. It's really too bad that the women of this (specifically North American) are seen so strongly as sex objects instead of intelligent beings.

Nakedness is natural, the body is natural. It's a real shame that people in this society feel a need to make a statement by linking it to sex and more specifically, the female body. If you want to have a great body, for great sexual reasons, keep it for the great sexual reasons, it doesn't make sense to use this as a way to get viewers or whatever your agenda is.

If you keep this up there... put out a challenge to the men... make it equal, make it sexual (please not pornographic). It's a fallacy to think that only hot women are sexually stimulating... Guys need to recognize that women love hot men too... so hot men out there who want to make a statement... hang it creatively from your dangly. It's not rational however to be fighting the themes of morality while taking steps backwards creating the sexual prison that women find themselves involunatarily and unhappily in and locking men into not being able to release the conditioning that sexual fantasy has to be like this. Would be nice to have a day where people are seen as equals sexually, physically, intellectually. These actions are not condusive to a world where equality exists, and people have natural freedoms.

And to the women... show how brilliant you are intellectually... no one really needs to read it plastered across your chest, they wouldn't be reading that message anyhow. Rise above the stigma that is out there, women are just as sexy and evocative being brilliant, intelligent and well educated.

I'm not about oppressing sexuality, I love it as much as the next, I'm against the whole idea that society is locked in a mindset that women have to make statements sexually, it degrades a progressive image that we can be free of and respected as women who are intelligent and worthy of equality and respect. Humans as a species don't have a great future to look forward to untill all can be respected for what they are and this message simply destroys that.

I don't mind being a sex

I don't mind being a sex object - does that make me a man slut? Sticking out tongue

By the way, does everyone like my pimp cup with my name on it? :ROTF:

I agree completely. Some

I agree with Kelly. Some women like exposing their body and proclaiming their lack of belief in a god all at once. So what? Atheism isn't a church or an organization, its simply a mindset. Saying it gives atheists a bad rep is like saying "oh, that guy is a murderer and doesn't believe in god. that means all atheists are murderers."

 Women are openly sexual for different reasons. Think of porn stars...most of them just enjoy being exposed and it's how they choose to express their sexuality. Other women like to be covered up. Either way, I don't think either group should be made to feel ashamed. People should wear what makes them happy. And if they're dressing a certain way for "the wrong reasons", that's their issue.

Sexuality has nothing to do with "rational thinking". It's a totally different category. Why do you care so much about how people express themselves?

*Our world is far more complex than the rigid structure we want to assign to it, and we will probably never fully understand it.*

LMFAO you are my hero. Why can't we all jump on the "men as sexual objects" wagon? Yay objectification of everyone! Just kidding.. a little. Um are you pants unzipped? It just got funnier.  I'm feeling so delightfully immature today.  Tongue out

Basically

I think Tom Leykis Summed it up best when he said " Life is like one big cosmic version of Ebay"  We are all trying to "sell our product" and advertise what we have going for us. We build up our strong points, hide our weakness's and put them on display for the world to see and then we find the highest bidder(sometimes people get no bids). . the combinations are endless But I think a balance is crucial for optimal genetic combination. Isn't that what our genes want? A good genetic combination to carry on...Mine do. I don't know if what i said even fits in here....but people need to lighten up....It's all part of the process baby! who will survive and what will be left of them?
