I’m still thinking about this, so …

I posted this to facebook, but it’s still on my mind.

Alternet.org asked Why Cops Bust Down Doors of Medical Pot Growers, But Ignore Men Who Keep Naked Girls on Leashes?

Why?

1. Low status of women and the cultural view that women are objects for the use of men. The priority that crimes like the one mentionned above get is a reflection of our culture.

2. The money incentive. But I go back to the second sentence of my first point: “The priority that crimes like the one below get is a reflection of our culture.” Whether you want to say it was thru our duly elected officials who reflect our values and culture or whether you want to say that the rich & powerful who control our duly elected officials, it is we who decided this. We are not powerless in this country. We stopped ACTA. But crimes against women?

Until we decide that the objectification of women is not a good cultural value, we aren’t going to change our priorities. If you buy a product that uses the objectification of women in its advertising, you are part of the why. If you support movies, music, and other media that objectify women, you are part of the problem.

If you believe that that is the value of women, then well and good. Be proud of your choices and the way your society treats women and will treat our daughters and granddaughters.
