Are half naked womens required in almost any commercial ? Nope.

Then why you see a lot of them ? Because it obviously helps selling the product. Either that or marketing deps of huge corporates are just full of idiots.

Now we can argue whether professional or not but until it works and it’s allowed, authors will just keep using those pictures.

I don’t like so many half-naked people. If I were a female buyer I would NEVER EVER EVER buy anything that uses female body for commercial purposes as I would feel degraded. If you can’t understand that just image that instead of all female bodies there were male bodies.

So would that also include makeup, lingerie, shoes, bags, perfume and magazines? ;)

No, no, it’s about using female body for no need of female body. Why does it have to be (half) naked? Even if we put the sexism part away it’s still just generic and boring.

The same argument can be made for all of the products I mentioned. What does a half-naked woman have to do with selling a magazine?

You’re argument is of a moral basis, and I definitely respect that. But I find it equally offensive when someone tries to censor my freedom of expression.

“All blue-eyed people should be killed” is an expression. But should you have freedom of saying it?

This is getting a little off-topic :)

I am a woman, but I do like to see women pictures in themes (fashion models). Of course, not naked. I appreciate nature photos too, but they have to be really good to capture the attention.

I do not feel offended when designers use woman bodies photos in their work. Instead, I feel proud, because women are beautiful.

BUT : I do not like the videos used in some of the latest themes, where people are mimicking the sex.
