Blaming women (by Suzie)

A Bloomberg article, reporting on the illegal videotaping of ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews naked, asks "whether Andrews might have unwittingly contributed to the widespread objectification of women." For example, the author, notes "that Andrews willingly associated herself with a part of Sports Illustrated’s Web site called “Hot Clicks,” where, near as I can tell, there always seems to be a photo -- or two or three -- of a woman in something skimpy."

Yeah, I wish women wouldn't participate in this stuff, but the blame needs to be put on the men at the top who sustain a culture that objectifies women.
