Fuller House (of triggers!?)

    Hi everyone,
    I think the answer to my question is obvious and shared, but I wanted a sanity check anyway...

    Yesterday I'm stuck in a waiting room for an hour or so, and on the TV the place was showing Fuller House (the reboot of the 80's sitcom that anyone who's watched it loved to hate). And i'm most certainly not looking for any triggers, but it just seemed to me that via their choice of wardrobe (emphasizing curves) and their choice of cast members there's a subtle sexualization of what would be otherwise a very plain vanilla and extremely non-sexually oriented show. At least that's what i perceived yesterday.
    What made it worse is before i realized what i was watching, it felt like a Disney show - Hannah Montana or whatever other garbage Disney and Nickelodeon air for pre-teens. Any of those shows I've regrettably come across (usually at waiting rooms - the crap that's sourced Britney Spears and her clones before and after) seem to have sexual undertones. So of course in my head i'm going full protest and conspiracy-theory before i realized it's just good ol' Full House, the new generation. I remember the 80's Full House, and i don't remember it being that sexually charged. So, my question:
    Am I the one that's sexually charging the show? or is Fuller House (the sitcom reboot) actually more sexualized than the original Full House?

    Extending the question to a broader discussion - has general-consumption media, in the past 20/30 years, actually, tangibly increased in subtle sexualization queues (intentionally or otherwise) - or have i become more sensitive to it?

    You might be finding correlations and this can falsely lead you to believe it is causation. Modern fashion and clothing tends to show more skin, and yes we're overall more sexualized, in a way that normalizes it. I don't think it's a conspiracy or anything, it's just the natural way that society inclines given the recent events in technology and the direction society is taking, you'd be surprised how little control humanity has on itself

    From the one episode of Fuller House I have seen (I've seen all the episodes of the original) it is way more sexually charged. Mainly because of Stephanie's figure.

    @Reptiler - perhaps i overemphasized the conspiratorial angle (i happen to be keenly conspiratorial, but not what i was really going for in this post/question). However, I agree wholeheartedly with what you're saying that society has a natural tendency toward more- faster, bigger, better, cheaper... so on. Seeing in sports and arts it's very clear - athletes especially: once they're told "this is the world record, nobody could run this faster" - there's going to be someone so obsessed that someday that record will be broken, hands down. Add the confluence of technology + animalistic instincts (pleasure-seeking) innate to humans + mental/psychological/cultural immaturity = an inevitable growing spiral in all facets of life. Including (maybe especially) the pleasures. TL;DR = sex sells.

    @soberhenry - Yea, i didn't really want to get too specific, but most definitely. Doesn't help that she's my type lol. Thanks!

    A thought i had a long time ago was wondering if less vanilla forms of sexual activity (bdsm, outercourse, group, cuck, - then all those + violence factors, etc.) have always existed? I mean - rape is as old as sex, both for personal intimidation and as a weapon of war (think middle ages as an example), so i'm sure all the stuff that is considered "extreme porn" is .. not normal, but not new, either. What i think IS new is that it's available for witnessing, which leads to desensitization. In social fringes (e.g. porn consumers) is where it'll start, but, just like slang or any other cultural osmosis, that desensitization will steadily eek its way toward the mainstream.

    And i think that's the part that bothers me, and what seemed to hit me like a ton of bricks when seeing that Fuller House episode. To top it off - who's noticing, asking, or paying attention? Ugh...

    I only saw part of an episode when my grandchildren were watching it but can understand that the women in it can be are using.
    The kids watch some other shows with young girls and I'm sure they were chosen because of their appearance. Maybe to keep dads interested while the kids take over the TV channel choices.

    Most likely - it's the "to keep dads interested while kids take over tv channel choices" that i find so disturbing. :\
