The Big Question. ((Rated PG-13))

My big question in life is, why aren't people more pissed off about this?

My big question right now in life is why we constantly allow ourselves to be patronized and objectified as human beings.

A woman is worth more than a body to sell a burger.

Or a frame to hang clothes on in hopes that preteen girls will beg their parents to buy the overpriced objects.

A gaggle of attractive women will not rip your clothes off if you purchase and then shortly after bathe with Axe body spray.

Seriously, have you seen these commercials?

Are you FREAKING kidding me??

I'm not just talking about women being objectified. Oh, no.

Oh heavens no.

What really gets me about these is the fact that these men are hardly wearing the clothes they're trying to sell.

What my big question really is...

Why do we, in our advanced society, use sex in such a demeaning and dehumanizing way to sell useless products?

Sexuality is a beautiful thing. Not when I'm sitting down to watch TV with a little kid and have to explain why so many women are chasing that man. Not when I'm with my family and see almost pornographic images flash across the screen. These are PEOPLE. Not BODIES.

I guess what I'm saying is, don't sell sex, unless you're ACTUALLY selling sex. But thats another problem.

  1. As we have been given free will by our creator, we have the opportunity, as Ghandi put it, "Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts."
    Mahatma Gandhi

    Point being that dehumanizing, demoralizing, hedonistic behavior sells to the least common denominator, which, unfortunately, there are more of than greater.
    Simply, less educated people are more interested in following trends and are sometimes, more easily persuaded into allowing their free will to determine what their next step is, rather than what their creator might have them do.
    I am not a Jesus-freak, Bible-thumper, or any of the like, rather someone in search of spiritual progress, rather than spiritual perfection.
