Now. A confession re political correctness. It's difficult these days - sometimes I do really like things, and then smarter women than I swoop in with words like objectification and sexism and one sort of gaze or another and I do see their point and it makes me think - but it doesn't always stop me liking things.

I think it's good to be aware, better be aware than be one of those dullards who can't see beyond surface significance.

But this looks like fun, nudity needs to be more everyday, I think, and I want to know if they got chased away before they finished the pose. :)

I think that no matter how committed a feminist one is (and I count myself a feminist), there will often be more than one way to interpret something. So just because person A thinks a piece of art is objectifying and person B thinks it's fine, it doesn't necessarily mean person B is less of a feminist—it may just mean a different reading or response.

Yep. This is a subjective thing, alright. And I have no interest in oneupfemship either :) No 'more feminist than thou'.

I also do believe there's a time and place for a bit of objectification :)

I don't know much about art, but I know what I like ;-) - and I like that picture.
