On nudity, do you agree more with Ariana Grande or Piers Morgan here?

**** teasing is a piss poor hobby.

I agree. If she does it with the attitude that she wants any man that sees her to relax and enjoy, it's not a bad thing.

Even if she admits that her intent is to demonstrate power over men, but drawing attention to yourself on purpose and then claiming that you don't want attention as so many women do does not work for me, at least be more honest than that!

It may be a woman's choice to show off her body, but is it her choice who looks if it's in a public venue? Should she be able to smile at men that she likes taking notice of her, while taking adverse action against men she doesn't like doing the same?

First it should be noted that you should have put a warning in your post or something...That half naked picture of Piers Morgan is now seared into my brain. YUCK!

As for the topic....I actually agree with Piers Morgan for once. There really is a double standard in Hollywood. Well...maybe a triple standard...

On one hand you have movies galore that have men and women having sex or being nude.

On the other hand don't you dare look at a woman that is gorgeous or sexy as that is objectifying women.

And then there's the foot...It's perfectly OK to "objectify" men...as Ellen Degenerous showed in her show. Now, I don't mind if women want to objectify men. Go for it. :shrug: Just don't holler when men do the same to women.

Of course that is one of the problems with today's feminism. Do as I say, not as I do. I really miss the old days of feminism where all that they wanted was actual Rights and being treated equally by men.

She's turning into a bitter harpy, but here is a song of hers from last year with a lighter attitude:

If you choose to display yourself in public (and there are no "Blue Laws" preventing it), then like any other act of free expression that can be heard and/or seen by whomever is present they may react (non-violently) as they see fit.

That's what being "in public view" means...silly to try to claim privacy rights while acting out in public.

I wonder if she drove him to it.

Beta males hate it when one of their own is schooled by a woman.

I really couldn't care less. If a woman wants to walk around naked let her. I'm definitely going to take a look just because it's unusual, and maybe a second one if she's attractive, but she can do what she wants.

Piers Morgan is a pop tart? ;) He initiated the argument for his own self-promotion (he’s a professional troll these days, it’s why he couldn’t get work in the UK). I’ve no doubt Ariana Grande is interested in self-promotion too but putting it all on her alone is simply wrong.

I think it is how you look, rather than just looking

When a woman walks by and you drop your jaw, staring at her for minutes, that is creepy. But discreet glaces, are not going to get you in trouble from anyone but your SO

As for objectifying women, it still occurs, more woman are naked or dressed in bathing suits in movies and entertainment than men.
