No, Women are not Angels. And No, Your Sex Drive Is Not an Excuse for Objectifying Them.
I just came across a delightful post on Feminist Mormon Housewives, which discusses two prominent and damaging myths about women: that women are naturally innocent and divine (in the LDS church, we say the same thing about trees and rocks), and that women are just bodies. You probably already know how damaging those myths are, but this article adds interesting nuance to the discussion.
