i removed the only example, because it doesn’t contain sexism. i hope you’re able to find a new example.
the old example was the Ubuntu Warty visual theme, a set of wallpapers each of which neither objectifies women nor treat women and men differently and furtermore, they aren’t aren’t even sexual. just look at them: it’s nonsexual pics of nude men and women. the page says the “sex is beautiful” excuse is used to rationalize oppressive women-objectifying sexual themes, none of which is given there. – 184.108.40.206 16:57, January 3, 2013 (UTC)
- I am not sure why you moved the discussion to this talk page: it makes more sense on Talk:Ubuntu Warty visual theme. Let's keep it there. Thayvian (talk) 06:55, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
What would you say to an event that 1) warned everyone in advance "hey, this is a highly sexualized event, if you come past the front door you know what you're getting into" and 2) sexualized all genders equally? Not rhetorical, honest question. Thanos6 (talk) 21:41, August 18, 2015 (UTC)
- 1) sounds fair1 2) it sounds like an interesting experiment especially if divided into areas with varying degrees of visibility and sexual objectification of various genders and other groups through various Gazes. (Or just a meticulously gender-flipped event.) As a strategy it just would not be viable unless the sexual vibe levels were as low as to be insignificant (and the entire point moot). Everyone would probably feel uncomfortable or at least weird in such an environment, with adverse effects to interaction between attendees. It would be a bloody hassle trying to juggle the balance. Just to name one obvious example, a lapdance by opposite sex is not the same thing for a man or a woman and I have no idea how an "equally uncomfortable" experience could be offered for other-gendered people or just about anyone who's not a white cis genderstaight heterosexual of roughly the same age group and with the same cultural and personal background. --Pecc (talk) 12:47, August 20, 2015 (UTC)
- 1: I mean, it's plain courtesy just like any Trigger warning. Personally I'd drop the second half right off ("if you proceed") because it sounds vaguely patronizing, and most importantly, something like a veiled "we're free of all critique" claim, i.e. obnoxious ass-covering. --Pecc (talk) 12:57, August 20, 2015 (UTC)
