Ailee bares her shoulders for new pictorial


Article: Ailee's provocative topless pictorial, sexy gaze to all kill the hearts of men

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+216, -10] Pretty sure it'd be better if she kept her clothes on... Her singing is more than enough and it hasn't even been that long since her leaked pictures scandal... Or is her company thoughtless???

2. [+182, -8] Aigoo, you fool;;;;; It was so fortunate that something that could've erupted into a career ending scandal was passed over and she's been doing perfectly fine right up till now;;; Taking pictures like this will only force people to remember that scandal and give them an opportunity to make jokes about it again. Company management, come on;;;;;

3. [+114, -21] So did this shameless foreigner b*tch catch the culprit yet ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+20, -0] Already know what they look like... not curious

5. [+20, -2] No point in her going topless since..

6. [+19, -2] She has a painful past of a naked picture scandal but now she confidently takes it off herself~

7. [+17, -1] This is only hurting you twice~~

8. [+15, -0] Why cover it when you've already shown it?

9. [+14, -0] This picture serves as nothing more than to jog people's memories on that scandal.... I forgot about it and had a good image of Ailee as a talented singer with an active career but this picture is only reminding me of that scandal again... I mean, she's lucky it passed over well but taking pictures like this won't do anything good for her image...

10. [+13, -1] So will she say she was frauded in this pictorial too if sentiment turns against her

    I don't think it's careless or a mistake. I take it more as art than trying to be sexy. She looks beautiful. She's a strong woman from what I can see. She's not letting what happened knock her down.

  7. when i saw these pictures the scandal was definitely not the first thing i thought of, i didn't even think of it at all. i think these knetz are looking too much into it.

    ReplyDelete
  8. So bc she was a victim of something terrible now she can never be proud of her body or sexuality again. Fucking assholes, especially comments 8 and 10 shut the hell up.

  9. "Ailee's provocative topless pictorial, sexy gaze to all kill the hearts of men"

    I don't find that gaze sexy.... something's weird about that photography angle.

  10. Whatever knetz, she looks hot that's all I care

  11. Lol ailee is quite lucky this is all the hate she is getting, anyone else with nudes like iu or a girl group member like hyeri, would their career be as stable lol? Think ailee got the "her talent is too good to stop listening to her so we will give her the anerican pass" ahaha.

  14. i was worried just seeing the title of this tbh bc of the comments. she was the victim in the scandal, and bc of that she can't show skin at all or show any kind of confidence???????? pls

    i don't think any are 'in charge' of their image or sexuality or whatever...people just give that label to those who carry out their image successfully and/or liked by them...all are image that most probably controlled by those with higher power...but i wonder how many people realize that...

    ReplyDelete
  18. these losers are so offended a woman has such confidence. she'll do whatever the fuck she wants!


    and how the fuck does getting your nude pics leaked make you a bitch!?

  19. The difference is CONSENT. CONSEEEENT. Repeat after me, consent is the difference.

    ReplyDelete
  20. i think they didnt end her career because she is considered more american than korean since she live most of her live there (?) and given the facte that her ex started all the sh*t~ she is so lucky in that aspect (?)and IU didnt had a nude leaked photo but the picture she uploaded with the guy, i mean.. she got the talent/voice>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> photo because people concentrate more in her voice , anyways, we dont know how public would have reacted since the bed photo is so different from a naked one.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can anyone tell me what this pictorial is for? Is it for product, advocacy, comeback, or magazine pictorial?

    Anyway, not the best concept for her IMO but Ailee's still looking fab! Will be supporting you Ailee! You go, girl!

  32. Under the name E.via, Tymee was forced to do this by management and was barely paid anything. She left but her company kept the rights to her name so she's restarted as Tymee and released a song about how she almost commit suicide because of this.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I understand your point but I would like to ask you what's your standard of cheap sexy concept? Taking off clothes? And does that make the girls be cheap? either if they do it willingly or by force? Sorry if I get off topic, I know we are talking about companies exploiting girl groups by forcing them to do concepts they are not confortable and so I'm just assuring that WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE COMPANIES EXPLOITING THE GIRLS AND NOT SAYING THAT GIRL GROUPS THAT HAVE SEXY CONCEPTS ARE CHEAP.

    how did they know she didn't put any clothes on???
    showing bare shoulder not necessarily you don't wear anything

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ailee is hot as hell in these pictures, they're probably jealous that she's been doing so well and is still confident enough in herself to have a photoshoot like this even after her scandal.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yup, may have also had something to do with IU's nations little sister image at that time, shcoking to find your so called sister with another guy in PJ's lol? Everyone was her nagging parent that day. If IU had nude leaked, she probably has a chance for survival since she did survive a pic in bed with a guy who has crazy die hard fangirls, the public love strong enough to knock any anti's and keep her number 1. Ailee may just be complete luck, thought it would end bad a be a "this is korea, not america" kinda thing and not so accepting.

    I don't see it as sexy, but I don't see it is as art either, it's kinda tasteless and just kinda there in my opinion. she shouldn't be shamed for it tho but yeah lol

    ReplyDelete
  42. agree, i see nothing wrong wtf, she looks beautiful /end, why do people always think too hard about things

    ReplyDelete
  43. I know it's a different country but Rihanna's nude pics basically sent her down a path where she began wearing less in her promotions and I have to say in a sense it empowered her.


    I know Korea is incapable of thinking of that but..yeah.

  44. Nate netz seriously..............

    ReplyDelete
  45. I agree with you but unfortunately, a lot of people see only the surface of things and this immediately reminds them of her leaked pictures. I mean, knets are shallow and they don't think deep and view this as art.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Me too. Man they can't get over shit.

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh please. those photos that were leaked were released WITHOUT her consent. big difference between that and a formal photoshoot.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The difference between this photo shoot and the leaked pictures are that these photos were released with Ailee's consent. Why are k-netizens so fucking stupid about this?

    That moron at AKP has karma ready to gutpunch him. I swear.

  49. IntenseFeelings_UglySobbingMarch 11, 2015 at 1:32 AM

    It's fine to not see it as art or sexy, but why do you feel like it's tasteless?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think they just find it ironic that they all felt bad for her for what happened and then goes and does a photoshoot like this. They seem very closed minded so.

    ReplyDelete
  51. yeah, she didn't get a chance to decide who got to see her body before but now she can. I see it as her reclaiming something that was taken from her.

    ReplyDelete
  52. IntenseFeelings_UglySobbingMarch 11, 2015 at 1:34 AM

    But so what? People are going to think of that whenever they see her. It was a big scandal for her. Honestly whether she's wearing a skirt that goes to her ankles or a bikini, people are going to mention the scandal. I don't think she'll ever get away from that. And I don't think she should have to stop doing pictures like this because someone else leaked her pictures. I hope I don't sound like I'm mad. I'm not mad at you. I always sound like I'm mad here lol.

  55. Nudity without purposeful vulgarity is art. Have you never seen Botticelli's Birth of Venus?

    The human body isn't something you should be ashamed of. The use of nudity in art (no matter what the medium) is meant to help people see that. -_-

    ReplyDelete
  56. I personally think the picture didn't turn out all that nice and looks a tad bit cheap (not slut shaming, I just don't like the way it was styled).

    ReplyDelete
  57. It's not like she's doing it for some cause. She's just doing it for a magazine shoot. I don't think it's the brightest thing she's done.

  60. Yes we are talking about the companies not girls. And my standard is if the girls assets are emphasized too much in a lewd way... Like Sistar's alone or girls day something was more refined and not cheap while if you look at Hello venus wiggle song obviously it focused on their butts. Even 4L's Move was filled with crotch shots and awkward poses.
    But then again it varies for each person. I guessmy standard is if a girl's breasts, butt, or other features are over emphasized and the star of an MV or subject to suggestive acts like dripping liquid down one's cleavage

    ReplyDelete
  61. I know. I love art but I see more and more BS in the "art world" . The worst is when the artist think they are genius or the first person to do this and always have some "crazy" story behind it. Oh and the price... sigh I can't lmao

    I know right. People treating her like shit and demeaning her for something she didn't do is utter crap. How can she be to blame for something someone she trusted did? It's terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Definitely not considering the Korean culture. They sort of gave her a "pass" for what happened but this may be pushing it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. but how do you wish such a bad fate to a person who you don't even know?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Robin, you sound ill.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm just going to throw this out there, Iggy and Macklemore aren't the problem, it's THE MARKET THAT MADE THEM STARS.


    OK first problem I hear, Iggy and Macklemore suck. OK, they're not great. But you know what? Record execs agreed that they suck! It was the market that brought them to the top! People LIKE THEM. They created huge buzz with barely anything supporting them. It's been well documented how little support Macklemore had before Thrift Shop blew up. The dude is like 32 years old.


    Second problem, Iggy doesn't freestyle. Yeah, Drake read off a phone too. Guess what? He's the most popular rapper in the world. It turns out you don't need to be able to freestyle to make good music. SHOCKING.


    Third problem, Iggy has a fake US accent. OK at this one I just throw my hands up in the air. You think she's trying to be fake for the specific purpose of ripping off American rap? How about the fact that she grew up for 16 years in Australia, then moved here with no money and just a GED and threw herself into rap for 6 years? I mean HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU SOUND? If anything, her having mixed accents is the real her. It shows she has a split life. Sure, her rap sucks, but it's real.


    Fourth thing, Macklemore I think is slightly less marketable, but you guys are freaking crazy. I hate Iggy and I can also guarantee you she will be huge for years to come. The market needs female rappers, and a female white rapper sells huge.

  72. besides his involvement in this song, his "new black" mess was just the worst. http://hiphopwired.com/2014/04/16/pharrells-views-race-sends-twitter-uproar-photos/

  73. He does not have any activities after his marriage asides from Super Show because he is preparing to enter army. But last year (mid-2014? not sure anymore), he was in a musical Vampire.

  74. wasn't she underage at the time those photos were taken too? there should be no question about who was the victim there.

    ReplyDelete
  75. How? Its america they arent as controversial as Korea, kanye literally does things 5x worse yet ppl still claim him as real hip hop but not macklemore who has messages the mass public can understand?

    ReplyDelete
  76. she is far from "taking over the game." she's a pop singer. not a rapper. and amazing that you've reduced nicki to just ass shaking....i just...

    Well.. the comments from American netizens about Jennifer Lawrence's sexy magazine photo after "the incident" were just about the same.

  79. Nudity isn't always vulgar or artistic. Just because I don't find it artistic doesn't mean I see it as vulgar.Or that I think it is something to be ashamed of.

  83. For the first comment, nah, it would have been passed as a hommage.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Well you talked about it out-of-context. In your original comment, you just laughed at people who consider nudity to be "art" but did not elaborate further than that.


    Considering the topic of this article is about nudity AND art, naturally people were already conditioned to assume you were referring to art, as in VISUAL art. You didn't expound on what context was your comment referring to. You could've easily added a quick example sentence to follow up your vague statement with something like: "take nude beaches for instance, that's not art but people just like to be nude on a beach".


    That sentence alone would put your statement in proper context in which you were referring to. Don't refute @half-serious's reply when you yourself didn't even bother to give context to your vague statement.

    ReplyDelete
  85. in the pictures, wasn't she wearing a bra & underwear?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Chill, it's not like I said I wished for him to DIE. That's much worse. I would never wish death upon anyone, that's just the lowest of the low and makes me an asshole. All I implied was that I'm glad that karma is coming back to bite him in the ass (even if this punishment is something as small as paying a 7.4million fee, which lbr isn't that much compared to what he made with BL) for doing awful things. Especially to his wife (though I may not have worded my comment wisely).

    ReplyDelete
  87. Well it did remind me of her naked pics but it's not something to insult nor shame her about it.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Well, I admit, I was disappointed with autograph thing, fans gift thing, and also I disappointed with how he treat his fans and other thing.. I'm not bashing him, I just disappointed with him.. Move on? Of course, I already move on.. It's just I didn't like him like before,but I still supported Suju..

    ps : the other thing I means http://bosswoon.tumblr.com/post/110955160234/sungmins-lack-of-responsibility

    ReplyDelete
  89. Okay, but why shouldn't it stem from how sexual she is? girls get mad at the double standard that men can sleep around but they can't. they don't see the act of sleeping around as wrong, but the fact that they cannot present themselves as sexual beings the same way without being hazed for it while men amongst themselves are praised.
    Men objectifying women is not the same as a woman taking control of her own body though? bodies weren't made to be objectified so even if a woman presents herself sexually it should not be seen as her putting herself out as an object. the logic behind it is for women to literally do what they want instead of following what society tells them is right because no one can tell you what to do with yourself if you're not causing any harm. it's okay to be more conservative! you live by your own rules! if you don't feel comfortable with presenting yourself as a sexual being that's okay! you just can't tell other people they can't or that it isn't right if they do!

    ReplyDelete
  90. ... can't I just support sexy concepts because I like them?

  91. I use to really love her on YouTube with her covers and also her first album was so good. Then she was shoved everywhere. I heard she was a diva so now I can't stand her anymore lol.

    sounds like the commenters just butthurt that the idols they all look down upon on and call cheap are actually doing better overseas instead of their drama gods/goddesses/ballad "queens"

    ReplyDelete
  93. Thanks for clarifying! I also think 4L's Move was chea. Bt if the girls actually wanted to have that concept willigly (which I doubt) I wouldn't have no problem with it since I don't think cheap is necessarily wrong; it's just how you want to use your body.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Its ok. She looks fabs

    ReplyDelete
  95. Publicly cheating on her boyfriend, being mean to her fans, and being generally a diva isn't flawless... But I agree that visually she is flawless!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I don't think its weird, just means they like that specific race more than others. As long as they arent rude about it and don't discriminate other races its fine. If people don't allow it, its the same as not allowing a gay person saying "I will only date males" and critising them as they are indirectly stating they wont date females, but its not like they being rude about it.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Is that Shia Lebeouf...?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Eh. I agree with Robin but people honestly just hate on Pharell for being relevant. He's actually really talented in all aspects of music and has made some really good songs. Everyone fucking loved him. But because he's no longer a early 2000s wonder boy and is actually relevant to mainstream media again people want to shit on him when he's just a dude who loves music and is happy to do it for a living. Same goes for other mainstream artists. Everyone fucking stanned Ariana Grande when she was on Victorious. All YouTube videos with her in it were filled with comments about how she had an amazing voice and deserved to be a big star. And now that she is people are quick to hate. What happened to the good old days of the 80s to early 2000s where mainstream music united people? Now it's nothing but hate fest.

  104. Tbh people in general need to understand that there are different skill sets that are needed in life, and the proble that schools in SK only focus on math, science and literacy... those are necessities, yes, but there are so many other skills needed in the world. In SK the arts aren't really encouraged for kids, trades like plumbing and carpentry, not encouraged... the problem is that kids who aren't good at academic subjects feel like complete failures because they have no idea there are other paths they can take, or they're discouraged from following those paths...
    it's really sad, actually.

  114. If you compare pharrell to the pharrell back in the early to mid 2000s he is totally different than the artist i remember him to be. As for Ariana Grande no comment. I still like her music for the most part but most people are turned off from her diva antics.

  117. ok... i'm chilean, people here knows a little about kpop... as much as they knew about para-para like 10 years ago, wich is no much. Everytime i say i say i´m studying korean they say "did you start because of kpop??", so the do relate kpop with korean, there are even chilean cable tv shows dedicated to kpop, but it's popularity isn't that big, if you put toghether all the idols, their popularity would be similar to justin bieber and one direction toghether.

  118. I think she's just trying to say that what happened in the past shouldn't be her obstacle to express herself as a woman? I admit this remind me of her past scandal and it's kind of risky, but since's she tucks her chin up, I guess people who don't see her in a new light after this pictorial can just bury themselves with her past and stay there forever. She's a strong girl :)

  119. The video was pretty gross in its objectification of women but I think people blow the lyrics out of proportion. I say this as a pretty hardcore feminist.

  123. School's cert are only the criteria for job's admission , the rest splits up into different factors , book smart , talent , potential , personality to succeed in that job albeit getting high pay.


    One classmate whom is not even good in his studies is now a top salesman in a bank earning 6 digits annually , driving his self bought car and only 23 YO.He made good use of his time during the Mid school , left education when he knew he wasn't cut out for it , went into part time jobs to keep earning and earning then later go into National service when he's only 18 while most of us males are still planning to continue studying hoping for good grades.


    He came out 2 years after and completed his private education degree during his NS. Starts looking for lucrative jobs with good prospects like finance , bankings and sales. He got into a bank and started selling/promoting credit cards while realizing his true potential , he realized he's very good at talking/conversing with other people , good as in he could close at least 50% of the sales everyday. Slowly he rises to the top 10s of the bank and became a pillar in there. He knows his job well and got zero relation to what he has studied.


    Meanwhile I'm still worrying about my school fees for the next Uni semester...To study or not it depends but realizing what you're good at and utilizing your potential to the fullest makes it even more important.

  127. If that's her quote in the corner, I love what she's saying. No matter what others say, I give her major props for this pictorial; however, my only question is why she would pose with The Whole Earth Catalog that deals with American counterculture during the 1960s. Lol

    UNLESS, she's going for the "Stay hungry, stay foolish" concept. Which, if so, would be AWESOME. Also, if it does mean that then her quote in the corner makes her even more kick ass.

    Am I reading too much into all of this? Tell me I'm not.

  132. My understanding of it is that Macklemore takes what hip hop really is, and waters it down. The music he makes for the masses is something like "hip hop lite" because the sentiments he voices in his songs are pretty much regurgitating what the most popular opinion or Tumblr or Youtube says.


    He isn't a terrible rapper, though. Actually, he's quite good? It's just that he built his mainstream image as a rapper trying to send a message... but it's very clear if you take a second look at the lyrics that the message isn't even his. He cited Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Talib Kweli as some of the rappers who influenced him. He should take a page out of their book and write lyrics about what he knows, rather that what will get the most attention from high school kids who don't know anything beyond what is posted on blogs.

  133. Fact is no matter what you think about Kanye he IS Hip Hop and represent's our culture. He is a dick at times but you have to be smart as hell to understand half of his music. Sorry but Wacklamore does not represent Hip Hop yes he is a rapper but Hip Hop NO! The fact he got a Grammy over Kendrick is still Bullshit.

  136. He apologized for that and said that even though it wasn't his intention, he understood that it was wrong and how people could see it that way.

    I'm not his #1 fan and I find him kinda corny but I think people get way too uptight about him. I think he's at least genuine about what he does, even if I don't think he's deserving of all his acclaim (and he robbed Kendrick at the Grammys)

  143. The comments are unnecessary but I don't like the pictorial either way. The earrings are ugly, the makeup does nothing special for her and they used such a weird angle of her face. Also they should have used a different book. One the said something catchy or sarcastic.

  144. Macklemore struggled for like 10 years before he got his biggest break (Thrift Shop). Maybe he's not like some people that like to bitch about his life so that a lot of people didn't know about his struggle.

  147. I don't buy that excuse. If people actually paid attention to his lyrics instead of jumping into the "let's hate the white dude" wagon they would see how wrong they are.
    He speaks about gender and racial equality and the effect of drugs as oxy on people. He's said on bis lyrics that he does come from a privilaged background but could still see that things weren't right.
    There are bunch of stories of people that have met him in person and describe him as a nice guy...

  150. I get your poin tand appreciate your point of view. Also I like how you don't jump at me for being conservative. Some ppl are quick to call it ignorant or whatever.

    And what I mean is if a woman taking control of her own body is through the same way a man would objectify her then that to me isn't empowering. By taking control I think that means a woman respecting her body more and not particularly doing the same stuff a guy did to her that was considered wrong. Its different if what she wants to do with her body isn't what would be considered objectifying. I meant like why go around doing something that was called exploitation when a man did it .

    So yes I agree with women having the ability to do whatever ( or they should have the right to) but I don't like when they use this to do something demeaning to themselves and then label it with empowering because she did it to herself not a man. Does that make sense? I hope my point is coming across clearly

    And lastly I feel like any person's value should come from more then sexuality. Embrace it. Hide it. Be in the middle about it or whatever but why let it be your whole identity. Depends on which definition of sexuality one uses though anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I agree... I mean yes its a trend yes it will die off and yes its superfluous but honestly not much attracts tourism and retains interest in a culture more like perceived personal connection to a celebrity or piece of pop culture.

  161. Well, the thing is that these "famous women" have probably done many admirable things like charity work and fundraising; they probably run a business; and they are probably independent and hard-working women but we don't see that! And it is because women is always labeled to their image, unlike men. I'm not even a fan of Jennifer Lopez but just by googling it I found out all the charities and causes she has supported. She even has a non profit foundation of health care and education.
    I'm not trying to say you're wrong and of course I'm not attacking you. I just want people to recognize women for what they do instead of how they look, the person as a whole.

  168. If that is the case then I agree, but I saw you mention 'you find it stupid that someone support cheap sexy concept' without referring anymore specifically about it. Some idols are forced to strip and to be sexy, while some aren't. So are you saying you refuse to support those kinds of concept because you think ALL of them are sexual objectifications from the companies, or because even if those female idols enjoy doing it, it looks vulgar and cheap and demeaning to women? 'Cheap', erotic, sexy concept in its primitive meaning is different from forced sexual objectification. We need to draw a clear line between those, or else it is still slut-shaming.

    My favorite idol has an erotic image, and I'm tired of people saying "it's sexual gimmicks from the agency" to excuse for their hatred, while she actually likes her concept, and is totally able to pull it off better than anyone else to make it become her trademark.

  170. Lol that quote is so much bullshit.


    There's a reason why people are inspired by musical genres. They listen to the artists in that category and base their musical style off that genre while having trying to put their individuality upon it.


    I highly doubt a fucking heavy metal band that listens to nothing but Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, etc. would come up with a song like "Blurred Lines".


    And plagiarism is more than just the chords as there are so many common chord progressions. Rhythm as well as sections of music (whether it's a part like a chorus or a certain instrument) counts as plagiarism as well.


    lol most of you have no fucking clue about music, so it's hilarious trying to see y'all delve into plagiarism and copyright.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Honestly its tricky. Its a very fine line bc we don't know how much of these things idols want to do and don't want to do. I mean some women really enjoy doing sexy concept, dressing in revealing clothes etc. I mean men have been using sexual prowess as a symbol of status and power since forever meanwhile its been painted as something dirty for women for a very long time. So yes it is empowering sometimes to see women showcase their sexual prowess if thats what they want to do. The flip side of this coin is that the industry can and does corner women who don't want to do these things into doing it. On top of that, there is abuse and trafficking that takes place. But returning to the other sode of the coin, sometimes abuse victims find relief(?) in open expression of their sexuality and it can be part of their healing process. It's difficult. Imo, it does more good to show support to these girl groups then not show support. Unless you are petitioning for the entire industry to change its practice, chances are nothing will change anyway. Whether they are doing cute concept or sexy concept, they will be objectified and treated like crap. But if you show support, then u help build their fame in the industry and they find themselves in higher position where they can demand better treatement, higher pay, and participation in the creative process.

    briefly (again this is stereotype, doesnt mean its true)
    korean man are gentle, but work too much
    chinese man are family man
    japanese man are work too much, dont really care about their woman
    korean woman are demanding too much
    chinese woman same like korean, demand too much from their man
    japanese woman are inferior, will do the house work without complaining
    a lot of korean man look for japanese girlfriend, and vice versa.

  184. That's the thing. He's talking about struggles he can't "identify" with. So what if he admits he has privilege? That doesn't give him a pass to speak for other people. There are gay people who don't even like "Same Love", so don't try to make it as if "People don't like him only because he's white, hurr durr". People don't like him because he trying to speak for people who don't want him to speak for them because they know how to speak for their damn selves and only fuels the fact that because he's a white heterosexual male, people will see his point as having validation while a non-white person who tries to spread the same messages is seen as playing "the race card" or if a gay person came out with "Same Love", it would be written off as "the gay agenda".

  186. haha it would make no sense to jump at you for being conservative! it's your own choice! if anyone ever jumps at you for being conservative in a conversation like this, let them know they are being doing a poor job at proving their point because they are clearly unable to look at both sides.


    Your idea of taking control is right but the problem is that you are holding "respect" to your own standards. what you think is "respecting yourself more" won't be the same as what someone else thinks is respecting themselves. finding their behaviour demeaning also falls in with this because you personally believe they are demeaning themselves based on your idea of self respect (sorry if this isn't clear, i realized it sounds a bit confusing so i tried to make it as clear as possible)


    a woman who is presenting herself sexually is aware with the fact that she is more than an object, she is her own being. if a man does it to a woman he is essentially getting something out of a body that doesn't belong to him, he is making choices for an entire person that is in no way attached to him, dwindling her down to nothing more than an object. he is not allowed to make these choices. and that's what makes it wrong when a man does it. where as when a woman does it to herself, decides to take off her clothes or keep them on, button down her blouse to expose her cleavage or keep them buttoned up to her neck, these are all choices made by herself, there is no one telling her that this is what she should be doing and how she should present herself - it's her making the decision on her own!



    A person's value should definitely come from more than their sexuality! but that's up to you as a person to look beyond. someone presenting themselves sexually isn't saying "look at me i'm sexy, forget everything else i've ever said and done because i have nice boobs!" attached to those nice boobs is a body, a neck, a head which houses a great brain which has probably spilt some truly profound thoughts and that's what we as people have to remember when we look at a person!
