If Women Objectified Men The Way They Objectify Us
Sometimes, I just think men don’t listen to themselves when they speak to women. They could probably benefit from having someone record them for a week, and play back the things they said to the women in their lives. Maybe it’s the way they were brought up, or what they’ve seen in the media, or what they soak up amongst their other male friends, but men seem to think that some not okay things are totally normal to say to women. Sadly, most of society doesn’t even notice when men say these things—they’re so common that these sentiments have almost become background noise or throwaway comments. But their implications and consequences are far from throwaway. I think if women said some of the things to men that they said to us—in a way that hit ‘em where it hurts—they’d realize there is nothing casual about some of their comments. Here’s what it would sound like if women objectified men the way they objectify us.
