Hmh, cannot resist...

Would it be sexist to think that (in this case) women might be
legitimately objectified by undead citizens? No evidence shows this is
a discriminatory behaviour, as we males would probably also be
objectified (braiiiiiinz!), but adequate advertising would be needed
to cater for us male living humans to be attracted...

Food for thought... (well, that's my definition of brains anyway).

BTW, I could have also felt Joss' message as a personal attack on my
and my family...
