Service Wives' And Girlfriends' naked calendar raises millions

Interesting news item I found while browsing the Daily Mail website:

Meet the SWAGS (Service Wives And Girlfriends), whose cheeky naked calendar has raised 26,000 for Help For Heroes | Mail Online

You may want to put a 'warning' before that link,
that it is meets European standards for public print.

Reasonable people (whiny hypocrites) may find some of those images offensive,
based on my post a few days back of an European magazine cover.

Can't there be a difference between someone else objectifying the female form and a woman expressing her sexuality in a way she feels comfortable with? Why does nudity and sexuality automatically equate to objectifying?

Not sure if this was a general comment or a response to my "they do," but the "they do" part of my post was tongue-in-cheek as well.

Very much a general comment to the mindset that goes with the outrage following these kinds of things. I think there has to be a happy medium between "OMGz, she has to keep it in the bedroom or she has no respect for herself!!!1" and the seemingly superficial need to show off or give away one's sexuality among.. young people these days.(Am I old enough to say that now?)
