Sexual Empowerment vs. Objectification: A Handy-Dandy Visual Guide from Everyday Feminism
We here at The Mary Sue obviously spend a good portion of our days trying to think critically about how female sexuality is portrayed in media like comics and film, and a common response to criticism of pieces like the now-notorious Milo Manara variant cover is that it can seem difficult to tell the difference between empowering sexuality and objectification.
