I'm a moogle, and I like cookies.
It’s something that has taken me years to figure out, and even longer to get a handle on, but internet commenting is a complicated game of avoiding knee jerk responses, and letting some comments go.
But I don’t think the advice of avoid the comments section is particularly helpful, what do you think makes comment sections so bad? When good commenters leave, it lets others abuse the system for their own ends.
Don’t get me wrong, the shot is heavily used to direct the male gaze and in regards to sexualization, but it can sometimes be used on men too. So the line comes down, when is it sexualizing, and when is it just an interesting pose? This isn’t meant to mitigate the issue, I’ve just found people use it as a hard rule(butt-shots are bad—look ridiculous), but it seems more complicated than that.
