Yeah it reminds me of conversations I’d have with my dad as a little girl. I’ve always had a feminist mindset but couldn’t articulate it well then. If I complained about women being sexualized constantly, he’d say “sorry, sex sells”. When I asked, why does it always have to be women though? He’d say something like “women are naturally beautiful! No one wants to see a MAN, har har” and it made me feel gross for what I know now is this equating of women to sex. We are not people but just sex.

Gross. I have had similar experiences; your concerns are trivialized, played off as nothing more than a complaint akin to that of a spoiled child.
