OBJECTIVE OBJECTIFICATION

I've made numerous comments here and elsewhere about the falsity of Kelly Thompson's criteria for her February 2012 essay (link above).  At the same time, I pointed out in OBJECTING TO OBJECTIFICATION that one can find genuine examples of societal objectification in particular social situations.  However, these examples don't compare across the board with hyper-sexualization in fiction.
