Self-Objectification as Power
The Result was !~OPERATION FUN~!.
In !~OPERATION FUN~!, a Young Lady named “Andrea Coates” decides she will seduce a Powerful Man named “Shane Smith” whose Media Company, VICE, is Guilty of publishing Young Ladies whose Careers were made on their Pubic Sxual Relationships with allready Established Male Writers, that is to say Girls whose Careers were made on their being the Sx Objects of Male Writers who were established on their Literary Talents aLone. Andrea Coates’ Logic is that if Shane Smith is willing to pay these Girls to write because their Fames, acquired via their Sxual Relationships ( their being Sxually objectified ), bring More Readers to his Magazine, he is condoning the Seeking of Power, inFluence and Jobs by Young Ladies through their Seduction of Well-Placed Men ( he is encouraging Ladies Self-objectify for Fame ), which leaves him Vulnerable to being seduced himSelf. But, because Andrea Coates’ Purpose in seducing Shane Smith is not just Power and inFluence and a Job, but to draw Attention to the Patriarchal Bias in Media ( which is a Bias in who is Sxually objectified ), which she hopes to remedy, she will not have Sx with Shane Smith unless he agrees to apologize, Publicly, for this Company’s Complicity in Gender-Biased Sxual Objectification.
Andrea Coates seeks to make Shane Smith fall in Love with her by displaying not Only her Youthful, Conventionally-Attractive Body ( by Self-objectifying ), but also her Skills as an Author and Media-Producer ( displaying her Complx Reality as Subject ). This is an imPortant Diversion from Adrian Brody because while that Story is told from a Feminine Subjective Perspective, it does not so Much highlight Marie Calloway’s Efforts to prove to Adrian Brody her Complx Subjectivity, but her Willingness to objectify herSelf to flatter his Subjective Ego. While Both Adrian Brody and !~OPERATION FUN~! make “the Man” the Sxual Object of a Feminine Subject, Adrian Brody focuses on Marie Calloway’s submission to Adrian Brody during their Sxual enCounter, her Willingness to be “the Admiring Young Lady” for him, her Willingness to let him cum on her Face, etc, re-establishing her as the Primary Object. !~OPERATION FUN~!, meanwhile, focuses on Andrea Coates’ Desire to Sxually and Intellectually dominate Shane Smith, to Publically shame him for his Errors of the Past, to sxualize him on the Basis of his Worldly Success, to have him publish More Sxually-Objectifying Images of Men in his Magazine, and to have him live in Open PolyAmory. So, even though Andrea Coates is the One Naked in All of the Photographs in !~OPERATION FUN~!, Shane Smith is Constantly being reminded of his Position as the Object of Andrea Coates’ Lust – she wants him to know what it feels like to be objectified in the Media. !~OPERATION FUN~! establishes “Andrea Coates’” Moral and Intellectual Superiority over “Shane Smith,” which not Only Firmly defines her as Subject, but means she will Sxually dominate Shane Smith, no matter his Material and Physical Power over her, as the metaPhysical directs the Physical. In Return for her Moral and intelLectual Gifts, Shane Smith is to award Andrea Coates Sx and Access to his Media Empire, equalizing their Power. And while Adrian Brody ends with Both Characters looking Morally-Suspect ( Marie Calloway needs a Man to make her Career / Adrian Brody cheats on his GirlFriend with a Younger Lady because she flatters his Professional Ego ), Andrea Coates and Shane Smith are Morally redeemed of their Actions by the Apology for and commitment to address the Sxist Bias at VICE Media, Andrea Coates’ Body Merely being a Bribe to get Shane Smith to make this Apology and Commitment. Finally, for its Unique Literary Style and Philosophical Depth, !~OPERATION FUN~! has Value as a Work of Art outside of whether or not Andrea Coates and Shane Smith ever have Sx. Adrian Brody, however, outside of its Value, based in the Actuality of the Sx described, as Gossip, is not Very Well-written or Philosophically proFound.
