Do Women Sexualize Themselves?

How many people believe that women sexualize themselves?

Secondary question: How many people believe that women sexualize themselves as a result of inadequate self-respect, and that women might be more likely to stop doing so if they were offered more respect?

@lizaveta,
Judging by the noises emanating from next door I would say yes, at about 9.15am on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Secondary answer: I believe that it is because of the ready availability of electronic gadgetry that makes strange buzzy noises.

I don't know how many people believe in that? Let's count.
I am - 1.
Next?

So if people respected me more I would respect myself more and hence I wouldn't feel any sexual desires? Who told you this crap? And who are you?
And where are you?

@Olivier5,
Isn't it so obvious (insert eye rolling emoticon) LOL
Mini skirts, makeup, boob job etc. Common!

@Eliusa,
Ah okay, accentuating physical sexual characteristics to attract attention. I would say the answer to the OP is an obvious yes then: many women do that...

I don't think these things mean they are asking for sex just because they wear miniskirts, makeup or have a boob job. Do they want to be sexy? Maybe yes, maybe no - but actions determine the degree of sexiness I suppose. I wouldn't say it makes them sluts though. If that is what you are getting at.

Many women dress to make themselves attractive.

sexualize
(ˈsɛksjʊəˌlaɪz) or sexualise
vb
1. to make or become sexual or sexually aware

2. to give or acquire sexual associations

I think a lot more than a mini-skirt, makeup and a boob job have to go into making a woman "sexualized".

Poor concept though. All women are by definition sexual beings, and all men too.

@Olivier5,
Sexual being and being sexualized - definitely not the same thing.

@mismi,
I understand that. Just saying it sounds odd to 'sexualize' an already sexually mature person... I suppose it means 'over-sexualise'.

Come to think of it, the OP seems to assume that this is a problem, and further, that it results from a lack of self-respect among women... That's a pretty strange idea to me.

Mini skirts = lack of self-respect????

@Olivier5,
Yeah, look at those 'sexual' beings without teeth and smelly...what do you say?
But if she fixes her teeth and took a bath and got herself all pretty - here, she just had sexualized herself.
Actually I am not sure anymore...Smile

@mismi,
There is a different length for mini sklirts, different amount of makeup where one says I am just taking care of myself and another screams - I will blow you for free anywhere! Also different boob job sizes, some to make them perkier, some to make everyone want to fk you in them. Right?

@Olivier5,
Except OP is almost implying that if women were respected more (however that amount is calculated) - they would be looking like hobos and happy with themselves. Smile

@mismi,
So how would you define the term?
Edit: that's a question that should be asked of the opening poster, to be fair.

@Olivier5,
I can get dressed brush my teeth, do my hair, put makeup on. I can work out and be built like a brick house and sex never has to come into it. That is not sexualizing myself. I get up, help my special ed kids, do homework with my children, cook dinner and go to bed. Sex has nothing to do with it. Unless I choose for it to be. Actions would make that happen.

Sexualizing yourself has more of a connotation of that being your chief end- your goal. It's a choice the individual makes. I can look nice and be clean without inviting advances of sex. I can even have big boobs - get a boob job to make myself more proportional without having to worry about
Others thinking I am "sexualizing" myself. Or should be able to anyway. Being a sexual being and actually setting myself up to achieve sex ("sexualizing" myself) should be two different things.

If the opening poster wasn't simply a spam/research/lazy homework troll who hasn't been back since and couldn't care less, I'm sure it would have jumped back in and re-phrased the question.

@mismi,
Disagree. Completely.
Taking a shower is what society expects from both sexes.
Just for sake of not stink.
Putting makeup on is totally sexualizing yourself.
I do not wear any. I well, had not until I wanted to look better to an
object of my interest though he doesn't give a damn, I thought lets
look better, baby.
The moment your lipstick leaves your purse - is when you are starting to
sexify yourself.
Don't tell me that hoodies and sweats are not most comfortable clothes.
However...

And about boobs. You would make them for yourself to feel more proportional?
There weren't boob jobs available earlier. So? Meaning you can live
without that however you would choose to make yourself sexier by
having them proportional (say larger wtf?)

And I do not think 'sexualizing' is setting yourself up for sex.
It is setting yourself up to sex proposal. Then you choose.
But you will not go to a bar in sweats, would you?

@Eliusa,
No. Won't go anywhere that is not the gym or the home improvement store in sweats.

And I didn't say I would have a boob job - I have had friends that do that - I
wouldn't judge. I said "I COULD". But so what?

To be honest- if I want sex - I can have sex without makeup or dolling up.

But ok. If you think that taking a bath and brushing your teeth means you are
sexualizing yourself. Fine. I disagree.😜

Not really a whole lot more to say.

It's an opinion. You have it.
