Is this the right way to handle such an offensive thing?

If you open any magazine, you’ll be overwhelmed with ads selling luxury items like watches, cars, and high-end fashion. If a man is being featured in the pictorial ad, you may notice a beautiful woman draped over him like a piece of clothing. These kinds of ads are clear attempts at objectifying women, making them seem less like people with feelings of their own and more like accessories to a luxurious lifestyle.

Typically, you won’t see men in the same demeaning position. However, one clothing company has chosen to put men in said position just to see how people would react to it. Some viewers love it, while others are quite appalled.
