Dirty Harry

Welcome to Male Objectification Week at the Flea™. Our first male model is Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry... kick ass!

District Attorney Rothko: Where does it say that you have the right to kick down doors, torture suspects, deny medical attention and legal counsel? Where have you been? Does Escobedo ring a bell? Miranda? Why surely you've heard of the Fourth Amendment? What I'm saying is that man had rights.

Harry Callahan: Well, I'm all broken up over that man's rights!

At the risk of spoiling everyone's psychoanalytic fun, I've always been tempted to treat Dr. Freud's introduction into conversation with the equivelant of Godwin's Law. Freud is just too easy to use to stage a passive-aggressive attack on someone else under cover of psychoanalyzing them.
That being said, I must here maintain: sometimes a .357 Magnum is JUST a .357 Magnum.

Nice gun.

The whole idea was to have an image so ridiculous people would have to scroll down to get to the end of the gun. Success!

I've fired a .357 Magnum. Hell of a gun. Almost dislocated my shoulder.

I like where this is going, Flea!

One of my buddies operates on the premise that Harry Callahan never carried handcuffs, and rather than requisition a pair...

It should be quite obvious that this objectification of men is exploitative and degrading!
