The fact that you say your sons will be noticing “female bodies” and not “women” proves the point on female objectification made in this article. You only interpret feminism as toxic because you cannot accept that the world does not revolve around men and their desires. Yes, I know, women are people and have their own desires as well? Shocking!

Feminism is not about shaming men: it’s about respect for women, something men should be equally interested in.
