Except alien abductions aren't real, unlike this forum.

I consider myself some kind of feminist (I can hear you all booing at me from here ) and I guess my problem with sexualization of women in film and other fiction/media is that it's more of a trend with women. I don't think that individual cases of it have to be bad at all, and because of that i don't make a fuss about individual cases, such as Harley Quinn and Enchantress in Suicide Squad for example. It's done with men sometimes too and it's not a problem. I get that sometimes you just want to have that eye candy for men or women, of all sexual orientations. That's cool.

I think the real root of the issue, or at least a big part of it, is that people don't write as many female characters as male ones. Often you'll get like one woman for every dozen men (or even less), and I think that's why you get a greater variety with men. There's room for the hot young (or good-looking older) guy who'll occasionally get (partially) naked to please the ladies (and gay dudes), but there's also room for the wise (or crazy) old wizard/scientist, the mentor/father figure, the fat geek and whatever other kind of character types you can think of. But since they often only have one female character to work with she becomes the "hot young girl in skimpy outfit" by default, to please people who like that. Again, not a problem in and of itself, it's just that it gets old when that's all you see and it's incredibly limiting for actresses.

So yeah... basically I think that's what it comes down to, really. Write more female characters/parts for women and the problem (if you view it as such) fixes itself. We can have the hot eye candy and female characters who aren't really about their looks. There's room for both, and that's all I want to see.

Hopefully that made sense.

I see what you are saying and why people feel it's a problem, but yours is a clearly articulated and reasonable complaint unlike most. You want better wrote women and more strong females in film. A good majority of the complaints come from "tumblr" types who complain that the sexualization is "upsetting" and lessens the women when that is not the case. If, let's use an example of Erin Brockovich, she used her sexuality and body to flirt with men to get access to records and still is a strong character (and real life person) despite this. Isn't the man the weak one in the situation? I mean, if we split hairs.
