A judge has decreed that Hobby Lobby must provide the morning after pill as a part of its employee insurance plan. In this article provided by abcnews.go,com it is stated that Hobby Lobby is not a religious organization, so it must provide the morning after pill to it’s employees. The owners are religious and are fighting the new health care law. Where do you think the line should be drawn? Should employers have the right to pick and choose what insurance should be covered?

Do women want to be objectified?

While I was taking a homework break, I stumbled on an interview with Cameron Diaz. She was saying how she believes stripping down is empowering, and how all women secretly want to be objectified.

“I think every woman does want to be objectified,” the 40-year-old Diaz said. “There’s a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it’s healthy.”

Diaz related it to being comfortable stripping down for the camera.  “I’m not some young girl with the photographer going, ‘Will you take your clothes off?’ I’m like [mimes stripping], ‘How does this look?’ They’re like, ‘Today we’re not going to put anything other than bras and heels on you,’ and I’m like, ‘These heels are not high enough.'”

She argued that as long as she’s in control of it, she’s happy being objectified because its apart of her femininity.

Do women want to be desired? Of course, men do too. It’s a natural human longing to be wanted based on your sexual appeal. But objectified?… Being stripped of your human traits to some sex object in the eyes of a man is exactly why sexual assault and rape happens… Denying seeing a sexy woman as a human being is what leads to the pervasiveness of sexism in society.

Women shouldn’t like being objectified, they should like being seen as a woman: sexy, smart, strong, someone with a personality…not an object. So when Cameron Diaz says all women want to be objects, she’s not talking about me.

What do you guys think?
