Stop objectifying women in your news articles.
People all over the world look at The Huffington Post as an excellent source of news. However, over the last couple of years and with increasing regularity news articles are appearing on your site that demean and objectify women. Instances of "nude photos leak online", "celebrity side boob", "celebrity wardrobe malfunctions", "best nude scenes of 2012", "9 Controversial Sexting Scandals", and more are appearing on your news site. These articles rarely report news worthy information, but rather focus on the bodies of women without regard to the damage it does to them and society. What do you think this does to young women when they see articles such as this? Do they feel valued by their society? Do they feel equal? Are they appreciated for their intellect? No. These articles are not worthy of coverage and inclusion on your site. I ask, on behalf of all women, that these articles be removed and a strict policy be put in place to prevent such articles from ever appearing on The Huffington Post again.
