That's not true. Look at the Avengers poster, the one that everyone went nuts over becasue of the gratuitous but shot.

All of the dudes are in what I'd call the "power pose" which accents the male form (tall, broad shoulders, flat stomachs) and projects the types of qualities women like:

Confidence,
physical strength and fitness,
leadership,
and most important - wealth!

Men are objectified just as much as women, but in different ways.
