Where's the outrage over Henry Cavill's shirtless scene in "Man of Steel?"

Last month, there was the outrage by the political correct police and the radical feminists over actress Alice Eve in her underwear for the movie Star Trek Into Darkness. One of the writers of the movie, Damon Lindelof (Lost) then rekindled the ridiculous controversy by apologizing for it. Yeah, thanks Damon. And again, Lost, season six sucked.

But in the new movie Man of Steel, actor Henry Cavill who plays Clark Kent aka Superman is seen completely shirtless. He displays a bodacious body. (above) And the scene is not needed for the movie. So it's completely gratuitous. Gee, I wonder who this scene is designed to appeal to? Well here's a hint. A female officer says this about Superman. "I just think he's kind of hot." Yep, it's there for the women and maybe gay men. :-)

But where is the outrage for the objectification of men? I have not heard any radical feminist or any member of the political correctness police express outrage over this scene. They whine about the objectification of women but when it comes to the other half of humanity, men don't count.   You can cut the hypocrisy with a knife.

MTV interview with Henry Cavill about the shirtless scene. No shame from Cavill about his body.
