How I feel when I Facebook stalk someone
My AP euro teacher wouldn’t let our class watch Les Mis so we barricaded the door and screamed “VIVE LA REVOLUCIÓN” when he tried to get in.
I’m not trying to be a prude or even some sort of politically correct nitwit here. What I’m saying is that this is a show with a lot of straight female and gay male fans (and plenty of other fans who can appreciate a good naked dude), and by focusing exclusively on naked women, the show creates the impression that it’s not as welcoming of them as it is of the traditional straight male fantasy audience. Maybe that’s part of a commentary on the show’s world. I’m willing to go with that. But it creates the unfortunate impression that the people who work on the show—who are, so far as I know, completely cool and forward-thinking individuals—have that mindset as well. I’m also not saying everybody should be naked all of the time. This isn’t a show that can do well with gratuitous nudity, and it’s gotten much better about making sure the sexual situations (and, honestly, the violent situations) are story specific. I just wish I didn’t have to see my wife, who really loves this show, roll her eyes every time there’s an opportunity for male nudity that passes by, but women are dropping trou at the drop of a hat. She deserves better.

I don’t agree that they’re making the sexual situations story specific. Instead, I think they’re finding ways of perverting the story to justify extra nudity. And I am NOT comfortable with the hard-on the writers seem to have for sexual violence. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
That said, the points about gender equivalency are dead on.
