What is the difference between objectification and just sexy?

I'm curious to see other opinions. Please, no sexist or misogynistic idiocy. Educated, thought-out answers that are also-thought provoking are encouraged and hoped for.

    sexy is good. it's what we all want...

    objectification is degrading a person.

    all men want a sexy girl, but only sick perverts that deep down harbour hostility towards women objectify women....

    normal sexy guy wants to seduce a woman for different proposes, all of which include him screwing your brains out...

    perverts want to punish you for existing, coz they blame their own general impotence on the fact that you exist.

    there are a lot of perverts out there...they are very good at convincing everyone themselves included that they are not, until they meet a plain looking, broke girl, with more abuse in her past than they could take in 3 lives and stay sane and she fails to even notice them...

    then their real faces suffice....

    sad really...

    anyway there is a difference between thinking someone is sexy and objectifying them...

    most women know the difference between insult and compliment...lol that is a proper creepy thing to say...

    Sexy usually refers to the idea that a woman decides to be "herself" and somehow end up attractive. Objectification is probably where a woman dresses up and someone alters to make them appear "better" even though they might already be better.

    For example:

    Sexy: a woman poses in her favorite bikini. Objectification: they use photo shop to get rid of skin blemishes and cut down to give more curves in some areas.

    It's a matter of perspective. The whole concept of objectification is very subjective. What one woman finds objectifying, another might take as a compliment.

    Objectification usually alludes to the notion of sex and sex alone. Sexiness, in my opinion, avoids viewing a person in a one dimensional sense and takes into consideration other aspects of attraction (such as personality, wit, charm, looks, manners, etc.)

    Someone who objectifies women sees them as only good for sex. Someone who finds a woman sexy may be attracted to her classiness, beautiful smile, and her profound knowledge on polar bears in the Antarctic.
