Gotta love the Hawkeye Initiative. It takes something people are undecided about and makes it so clear to see.
The past few weeks it’s seemed difficult for us to tell when something is simply sexy, and I guess that actually makes sense. Sexy is subjective. It’s about attraction. I may find something attractive that you don’t. But isn’t there a commonly or popularly understood definition for sexy too? Sure. We can tell when a picture is trying to be sexy in our culture. It still might not attract us in that way though.
Sexualization on the other hand …well. It’s like looking at Greek columns and knowing an Ionic from a Corinthian.
