i went down to the middle school today for relay for life and i saw my old social studies teacher i had a crush on (don’t talk to me) and he was like “hey how are you i haven’t seen you in ages?” and the first thing i blurted out was “I JUST TURNED 18” and jesus christ if that’s not the thirstiest thing i’ve said in my whole life
What are men supposed to do? Shut off the part of them that makes them human? She knows what she’s doing wearing what she’s wearing by posing like that. She knows the cause and effect with those sultry looks she’s showing. She’s sexually objectifying herself and she’s doing it on purpose so we’ll look. She’s fishing. However men are shammed when they take this bait. We’re pigs for checking her out. It could be an 18 year old or a 21 year old, 25 year old, 35 year old, etc dressed while posing like this.That’s sexism against men because you want us to repress our sexuality while teasing us in the process.
You know, when I tell my dog to stay and I present her with a rather attractive bowl of food, she stays put. She knows that she’s not allowed to have it, so she stays away, meanwhile, the food continues to sit there looking attractive. So uh, if you’re telling everyone that men actually have less restraint than dogs, maybe you should think hard about who’s being prejudiced here. lol
Seriously? It’s so weird how men project all these intentions onto girls (and sometimes women) because of how they react to them that it’s “bait” and “sultry glances” and she knows “cause and effect.” Just because she’s wearing a certain outfit and posing for a camera. She is a minor. A sixteen year old girl. I really doubt you’d think your teenage daughter would have these kind of intentions toward men—or that even if she did that those intentions would be fully-informed or an open invitation to grown men. Nor would you be so forgiving of the men who reacted to her the way you are toward this girl.
Not to mention that for all you know even a grown woman dressing like this could be a lesbian, asexual, celibate, in a committed relationship, or simply dressing this way for herself and have no interest in other men gawking at her. How the fuck do you know she’s trying to attract you or bait you? YOU are responsible for your reaction to things, no one else is.
And no she is not objectifying herself. What the fuck does that even mean? Please explain to me how someone objectifies themselves? The whole point of objectification is that a SUBJECT removes the subjectivity of another person. YOU are objectifying HER.
