Sports Illustrated Objectifying Images
Unsurprisingly, every issue of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue is inherently filled with sexually objectifying images. These images are not designed to be empowering. Rather, they are designed to portray women as sexually desirable and available to the male customers purchasing this magazine.
These images are not about body positivity. They are about male sexual entitlement, and the mega-corporation that profits off of hypersexualizing women.
