"It’s an example of women participating in public life — political, professional, social — and having their participation reduced to sexual objectification. That’s what happened here, nothing more, nothing less."
Yes, this exactly!
And RJ, I imagaine the Safer Spaces working group and the Speak Easy Caucus (I heard a rumor that those groups merged, but I don't know if it's true) might have some answers.
On a more general level, it's *really important* for guys to call out other guys on acting skeevy or talking in a way that objectifies. There's SO MUCH social pressure against doing so, but we've gotta break out of the mentality that the world is our 7th grade locker room.
