I have been having some interesting chats with people about this issue lately. One of my friends disagrees that the regulation of billboards, music videos and magazines should be on the grounds of some 'moralist response' which wishes to regressively stop our children from seeing sex as healthy and normal. She believes that the opposition to these mediums should be on feminist grounds to do with the way we view each other as humans, and trying to aviod young people and children growing up seeing each other as objects. I liked what Rachel Gardner said at the Sophia AGM last year when she commented that we must all be appropriately 'sexualised' to become healthy adults. I hope that the coverage on this report will start to explore issues of objectification rather than just middle-class moral outrage.
