Shortpacked! Defines False Equivalence

I’m not sure that this will successfully explain the difference between “idealization” and “sexualization” to anyone who hasn’t figured it out already, but, as usual, David Willis of Shortpacked!, Roomies, Dumbing of Age and It’s Walky! knocks it out of the park whenever he talks about gender in media. For a real life example of what’s being presented in this comic, check out James Deen, a male porn star with a significant female following, talking about why his appearance appeals to women so much, and the subtle homophobia involved in why the porn industry doesn’t instinctively go for guys like him.
