Objectification is...Bad?

Here's the full journal explaining this piece here:

Finally! Something I've been wanting to get done for a while, but haven't figured out how to do it…until now! :dance:

You ever hear the countless messages and campaigns by feminists and activists that emphasize and hammer in how horrible it is to objectify someone?

Well, unless you've had your head in the sand for the past few decades, of course you have!

But have you ever stopped to think about how overgeneralized and downright absurd it is?

As social and interactive beings, we objectify non-stop, both consciously and unconsciously. This is common sense. From the basic actions like reading, writing, speaking, playing, to even more complex actions such as dancing, driving, gaming, everything we do is in some way a form of objectification.

Some people like to be catcalled, others not. Some like to be spoken to, and some just want to listen. Some want public attention, and some want privacy. Some want to be fantasized about sexually, and others don't want to be thought of that way.

So as long as it’s not disrespectful, unwelcome, or against required permission, there is absolutely nothing wrong with objectification of any kind.

Thanks for this post and message!

I mean, I do sexualize some females when I draw sometimes, because that's what I like to do. But of course its disrespectful to see people as "objects and not people", but like you said, there are those that like the attention. Silly me, never thought of that earlier. If those people want the attention, then fine. And I might be a fool but, if women objectify men, but they think its bad if men objectify them, then fuck off.

If you respect me and others as human beings, then I will respect you. If you don't then I don't want to care about your feelings and thoughts. This hypocrisy is ridiculous.
