"I find it very interesting that a man can be a stripper, talk about it openly, go on SNL and parody it in several sketches, and nobody accuses him of leveraging his sexuality to get ahead. They applaud it. And he did make a quality film, and it obviously did really well, and it had a certain pedigree - it wasn't trashy - but I do not think a woman would be treated the same way. I'm living proof of that. A woman's sexuality is dangerous and threatening and dirty, and for Channing, it's a charming tool in his arsenal. And I love Magic Mike. I love Channing. This is in no way a diss on him."

    Couldn't disagree with her more! I find Channing Tatum repulsive.

    what is she talking about?? Diablo Cody has hardly been discriminated against for being a former stripper—She won an Oscar!

    She says, 'a woman's sexuality is dangerous, threatening, and dirty' - but at the same time it is expected. A non-sexy woman has a harder time succeeding. For example - there are butt-ugly men reading the news - but a woman reading the news has to be attractive. Also, didn't Beyonce's SuperBowl half time strip show receive nothing but praise?

    actually, it's gross all around. men stripping is funnier because men's bodies arent particularly sexual in my opinion. women stripping has nothing to do with their sexuality. it's about money and attention. nothing to do with "dangerous" women sexuality *rolls eyes* strippers are dirt

    Well, most attractive women are hired solely to fill the eye candy role. So of course we you have a talentless actress getting by on just her looks people will say so. Strippers don't embrace their sexuality for empowerment, they exploit it for attention and monetary gain, like most women in general. Attractive men, who cannot act for crap also get called out on it. Women really don't go sexual mode when they see male nudity/strippers, but men do. Soo she's an idiot..NEXT

    I'd say she has a point. While it hasn't really hampered her career, I have definitely heard people make comments about it, if for no other reason than to say "She used to be a stripper…"…while most people seem to think Channing's past makes him sexier. Neither should be judged, it is what it is. (Also, Magic Mike was a crap movie.)

    stfu, Brooke.

    In some cases…but Demi Moore was lauded for her stripper role but I don't remember her being accused of using her sexuality to get ahead, but she was already ahead. I wonder what happened to Ms. Diablo. I must have missed it. It surely happens, though.
    Channing merely accepted a role and ran with it. He's masculine and interestingly good looking, and has the build for it. Shrugs.
