    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.

    Update: I'm down to 180. Lots of walking.

    I think I'll take the fact that I sound like a woman as a compliment.

  • Linnster ♒ßεllεc... 2012/07/26 22:44:50
    I was so busy looking at his eyes, the 'stache didn't register, but now that you mention it - woo hoo!

    Think his back is just as hairy? I'm sure of it actually.

    Can't you smell his breath from here?

    (OK, I just made myself a little sick)

    If you were a cave woman, you wouldn't know any different. I doubt he could have smelled worse than some of the folks I share a subway car with on the way home from work some days.

    A cave woman would undoubtedly have an odor issue going on herself.

    Back then, there was an obvious excuse for the 'bodily humors'. Today, no excuse to cruise around in public nauseating those who are downwind of you.
  • Linnster Purple ... 2012/07/27 11:04:53
    Correct. Makes me wonder how these people can stand themselves.

    Ha! I bet we all (men) looked like this once. Whon-gaa-waa !
    I love to smell women, sniff...!

    It is with horror that I imagine what his wife looked like!

    I meant to click yes. WTF

    It's natural. It's just not right.
  • rand 2012/07/26 20:43:39
    Men are hard-wired to appreciate characteristics that speak to the odds of reproduction, the hourglass shape, symmetry and golden mean ratios in the face, etc. Whether that qualifies as "objectification" may be a matter of semantics.
  • Sophie rand 2012/08/05 20:26:29
    That's what I was thinkin'.
  • HarleyCharley 2012/07/26 20:38:51
    I think it's biological...
  • marianne HarleyC... 2012/07/26 20:43:46
    whatever it is , i think that it shows that us women still have some ways to go, although...

    recently more men are being objectified by us women, and maybe we are getting equal..;-] sexy male

    Yes, It was Mozart! ^_^

    Oh, I love Mae West.
  • Daryl 2012/07/26 20:38:13
    Yet another study that verifies the obvious.

    Yes objectifying women is natural. This is why confusing what is 'natural' with what is 'good' is a bad habit.

    There are many natural things that are immoral and unethical.
  • rand Daryl 2012/07/26 20:46:28
    Nature doesn't concern Herself with justice, but "morality" is man-made, so if you're including man as an aspect of Nature, you're right.
