Exactly this. The visual mediums has always objectified both genders, it's fundamental to what they are selling (pictures of people). The outrage of "female objectification" only seems to indicate a lower tolerance among women (or feminists...).

Addendum: this is true for all mediums, if you are representing a character, it is impossible to not objectify it in some way, it is an object in relation to your product.

Women don't like prettier women being shoved in their face, neither do men but they expect it.

Women's response to prettier women is to either not give a fuck or to have them removed. Men's response to better looking men is to not give a fuck, attempt to improve themselves to look like said guys or to shut up because they know no one will care about their feelz.

As a guy, I have never been bothered by it. If I see a super ripped dude on screen, I feel a bit of admiration and jealousy, but thats it. The dude is something I should work towards, not tear down.

I don't care about pretty men being shoved in my face.

I know my value is not in my looks, my value is in what I do.
Be more than your appearance and all this shit disappears.

although, I do gave a face for radio...

Don't forget about the Vietnam War. There's nothing more oppressive than systemically forcing young men to go die in a fucking war.
