Proving men are objectified too.
1) The percentage of ads featuring objectified women is MUCH higher.
2) Many of these ads are actually targeted at gay men. (… and Abercrombie is a supernasty problem in that regard. The Abercrombie headturd has been known to sexually harass men under him. He’s just a complete… turd.)
Teen Wolf is an interesting example of this “male objectification for the gay male gaze, envisioned by a White gay man in charge, which may coincidentally also speak to female straight or bi fans”. (That is coincidence, not design. There was no market research on “male representation that straight and bi women enjoy”. And the gay male gaze is often a very different representation of ‘beefcake’ and male behavior than the female bi/straight gaze would be (see also: fandoms, especially female-audience manga).
3) THINGS DO NOT HAPPEN IN A VACUUM. There has never been a female president and humans happy with their penis and ability to grow a beard (aka cismen) are at the helm of 95.6 % (!!!!!!) of all Fortune 500 companies.
"Privilege", that concept that you unfortunately have not grasped yet in any way, refers to INSTITUTIONALIZED privilege.
Therefore women could only hold such privilege if the figures of positions of power were skewed towards women.
