Apologies for the shoddy research on my part.
'sokay, I just got this thread linked in my site referrers and had a need to vent a little
The term sexually objectified is a thin one, and can be edged either way to support any kind of debate.
If you are losing a debate, you can bend the definition favorably, if you are winning the debate you can bend it unfavorably as well.
What sexually objectified is, is hard to say. For this reason, hpapillion seems to have defined it as "sexually objectified decoration" because the root word, sexually objectified, is a bit ambiguous.
You might find it useful to read the posts you are referring to before talking about them. Or to use a thing called google which can help you in your research. Sometimes when people put quotation marks around sentences, it is because they are directly quoting things which have been said elsewhere on the internet. Searching for that quoted text will help you discover the source of the quote. It may also help you discover if someone is completely making a quote up. This is a useful skill for you to learn when trying to understand the world.
I didn't define sexual objectification as anything at all. I simply pointed out that there is no Tropes Vs Women episode entitled "Sexual Objectification". It's not a trope.
- picked an episode which appeared to reference sexual objectification in its description
- stated which episode I was referring to
- quoted the definition of the trope as it was being used in that particular episode
Also, that's not what "root word" means. Here is a link to a dictionary entry with an explanation of the term "root word".
