Nailed it.

'Over and over, what turns me off about the crime dramas is the way that a body is an object. Over and over, the body is a woman’s body. Her body speaks in evidence: fingernail scrapings, semen traces, errant skin cells, a stray hair, defensive wounds. The woman is an object that only becomes important when she is dead."

Final paragraph, "Counting Bodies" by P.E. in The Rumpus.
