Why do so many women use nearly naked shots, (of either themselves or just stock images) as their profile pictures for blogging and forums? Why do they want to be envisioned only as a set of boobs or as an ass with a thong in it? Do they think they're going to be on top of the mating chain? Do they not realize that the net is filled with a lot better/more explicit portrayals of sexuality and their tiny square of cleavage is not going to assert any type of advantage? Many of the women seem to be quite independent, intelligent and even feminist, so it seems bizarre to revert to such am lascivious tactic of voyeurism. Maybe I'm missing something. Maybe I'm not.

Haven't noticed that. Perhaps I need to surf more. Naaaa.

But the same thing happens in workplaces and in public. I don't know whether there's a change in attitude or if it's the same reflection of sex based female oppression...
