I Blame The Patriarchy: The Pie Fight Chronicles, Part II

In this voyeuristic age of ours, there's something I've been thinking about lately. Is there really, truly a new wave of feminism all about flaunting one's sexuality for self-empowerment? Is it just an invention of outside minds (i.e. men)? The internet's been one of the main actors in creating a great big contemporary conundrum: where does sexual expression end and exploitation and porn begin? Jill Posey-Smith of RFT, Johnny Magnet, and Sexicolor fame seems to have been addressing related concerns in her blog in the last few days or so, and from my perspective, she tends to be right - give it a looksie.

My main question, I guess, for all of youse to mull over is, where is the point where it stops being sexuality for empowerment's sake, and starts becoming just giving pervy guys what they want, and perpetuating the objectification of women? Or is it both? (Is it out of place for a 20-year-old male to be asking this?)
