    I kind of realized that that term is not universal. Has been used in Indian media. It's basically about objectifying / sexy-fying women in media or entertainment industry for pleasure of "male gaze".

    EDIT: Elaborating further, this is somewhat tricky and I struggle to come to terms with this. On one hand, there is talk of complete sexual autonomy of women and their right to choose how they dress up and behave. On the other hand, there is condemnation of excessively sexualized portrayal like the one in the still below from an Indian movie:

    I disagree.

    I think we're starting to see a backlash against feminist discourse, particularly with garbage like MRAs becoming more noticeable. This is good because it exposes how backward a lot of people are.

    Feminism needs a lot of focus, especially here in India where it runs at a very deep level. It's so ingrained into people's psyche that they just can't see what's wrong with some of the issues holding women back.

    So completely unironically, I'm going to say that the 'male gaze' is a nonsense topic and just isn't worth talking about.

    You might appreciate if you watch Bollywood for 5 years at least

    That's just a gunman dancing with a girl performing for the pleasure of bad boys from a rural place. Bollywood can be hard to explain!
