Sexual Subjectification Vs. Objectification: Why We All Need To Learn The Difference (Video)

by Elite Daily Staff

Sexual objectification is a topic that we at Elite Daily discuss a lot in the women's section, but don’t often explicitly define.

This informative video from sexuality video expert Laci Green clearly breaks down what sexual objectification is, why it’s damaging and how we can change it.

As a society, we’ve become desensitized to employing women has sexual objects in our ads, our media and even with our Halloween costumes. It’s deeply rooted in our cultural subconscious to the point where we don’t even realize we’re internalizing these images in such a sexually selective way.

Take for instance a women’s naked body versus a man’s naked body. Science has shown that both men and women see women’s bodies as a mish-mash of sexual body parts, while we see men as whole people. Hmmm, maybe Picasso was on to something…

Check out this thought provoking video here; hopefully it’ll change the way you view women.
