    Processing something as an object (body parts) is not the same thing as the act of objectifying women.

    Our brain also sees animals as food. But we are able to refrain from eating our cat.

    Men can (and should) act right toward women.

    Women seem to think men do that, but I can't be the only one who admires the entire person, including the unseen parts such as intelligence, sense of humor, sense of values, etc.

    Well, Actually I say YES I just don't know how to change the answer. If you don't like it cover up and stop blaming on the men. It's your fault for attracting that kind of attention. Just get over it. THERE"S NOTHING YOU CAN DO!!!! Take it of leave it.

    Had their be nudity - clothing optional for both of us the whole body would be seen as a whole. As it is the outer garments accentuate the parts that are hidden from our view. That causes people to focus on the parts that are not visually seen. That creates schism in the body.

    I find it funny that a study could be concluded through nothing but observation. Anything that makes people objectify women as body parts comes from society not genetics.

    To the SHs who have gone on the offensive against men regarding this study: it clearly states the participants were equally male and female, 50-50. But then again, a walk on a summer night could tell us all as much. ;)

    I know that all the women on here will say no, so the poll will not be accurate, i feel this should be a male only topic. That being said if a guy on herze doesnt look at a woman and says " man she has nice________" ( use the word of your choice) your a liar. Every guy does this, personally i dont see any thing Wrong with it. Women do it as well, i hear girls talking , " omg did u see his______" ( ladies fill in the word of your choice). So i guess thats my .02

    Then why has it always been this way? Society is always in flux; it's never the same. "It's not nice to mess with mother nature."

    Possibly, however unlike a dog (7 Highly Effective Habits for Teens) we have the progressive ability to differ from inappropriate and appropriate.

    The fact is , men are hardwired (no pun intended) somewhat differently than women. Men inately know it and researchers have studied it. Women subconsiously size up a gentleman as to whether or not he would make a good father. Girls , if a guy knowingly likes your assets, does it really matter as long as he cares for you. You all know it, some girls dress for the attention and then act offended when that attention is rendered.

    Its exactly this attitude that creates abuse on women. I personally think society is to blame, not natural instinct. If we were raised differently, we would think differently.

    Why is it "natural?" Does that somehow make it right? It disgusts me that males are so insensitive. Women like words, and men like looks. That's why women wear make up and men lie.

    Why is it "natural?" I agree. It disgusts me when women are so sensitive. Men like women and women like themselves. Men lie? Men wear wigs, silk stockings, high heels, makeup, perfume, have breast enlargement, bikinis, mini skirts, expose their mid section, painted nails, and even more make up, they shave their legs and not to mention you know where, permanent eye makeup, silky underwear that makes no since, tons and tons of jewelry, ribbons in their hair, Daisy Dukes, pink-lavender-orange-purple, they actually change their underwear daily, and I could go on and on and on. Women lie? never? Now women wear jock straps and walk the earth in the clothes they slept in. They're perfectly natural. Men like sex and women like chocolate. What's a girl to do?

    this is why men have wet dreams and wake up with erections,its nature,animals do as well,its a recent phenomen by so called liberated women to deny this ,the true liberated welcomes the attention ,understands it,accepts is as a huge part of life and knows how to handle it, It has absolutely nothing to do with your enviromnent,genes all culture,its true on every continent since the time began to deny the physical attraction or to censure it isto deny life itself!

    And I love this guy for his honesty. and I love titties, also! That would be a great question. 1 cool bro - Your so right and if I might add: I think women do also or why would they have them pumped up. If they don't want to be objectified they might try not sticking them in our faces.

    the gurls are enjoying our sharing. They live for attention. Me too. boys show off also. When young I'd say gurls ruin everything. I don't like them at all. But I'd ride by on my bike standing on the handle bars, turned backwards and with one foot in the air. They would pretend not to look. It's Mother Nature and Mother Nature doesn't like to be questioned.

    Men can (and should) eat right when eating women.
