Are Women Really Sex Objects?

Don’t mean to start a big fight on this fine Sunday morning – but here I go anyway.

When you really think about it, I mean really think about it, aren’t women really sex objects. We try to say they aren’t soooooooo much but, at the end of the day, when all is said and done, women are nevertheless seen as sex objects. We try to hide it as much as we can but don’t we still really believe it anyway?

Of course women are not just sex objects. I feel that we have fooled ourselves into seeing men and women as equals. Women see themselves as objects of sex appeal and guys see every girl as a potential ‘fun night’ – or more – no matter what they say.

Why do women get breast implants? To have better posture? Why do women apply makeup? For sun protection? Why do women spend time and money improving their looks – at the expense of time devoted to enhancing skills and building experience? Because it is fun obsessing over looks?

Maybe you’d say “yeah, you’re right, but the point is that it is wrong and we have to strive to correct the situation.” To that I would reply with this – why spend so much time and energy fighting against our instinct? Against our nature? Look at what amazing things can happen when we go with our instincts – we get to the moon. Look what happens when we fight our instincts – we get a war on drugs that costs money and doesn’t fight drugs.

Why not admit that women are seen primarily in terms of their sex appeal and embrace the truth. It will set you free – and hopefully set them free of their clothes!

What do you think?

First of all, this is assuming all women fit this stereotype. All women wear cosmetics, get bigger boobs, and apparently we don’t get old (or too old) either.

Secondly, there is the idea that cosmetics and etc. are all about changing or creating an appearance on the outside. Yes, of course, that is part of it. But, most women I know like to feel they are looking good. (I don’t think that’s just a woman thing, or a sex thing, or a gender thing).

Do women (or people in general) want to look good in order to be sex objects? Some likely do. I’m sure it’s not 100% however.

This brings up the question… Are men really sex objects? Which makes me think about what makes a person a sex object in the eyes of the beholder? We all have our own view of what is sexy.

Also, last of all, a sex object seems like an inanimate object, something you can pick up, use and discard. I don’t think we should be looking at anyone that way. In the end, it’s the reason I don’t think men or women are sex objects. But, some day there will be sex robots and those will be objects, animated in a mechanical way but still not human. (At least not for at least a generation or three).

Men in Women’s Public Washrooms

In support of the transgender movement people are now expecting public washrooms to be gender neutral. I disagree with this idea.

Men (claiming to be supporting transgender issues) have been entering the women’s washrooms/ restrooms and filming it. I think that’s going way too far and I am really surprised people support this. Common sense says this is just putting women and children at risk for more abuse. Removing what has been a safe place and turning it into an unsafe place.

In addition, the women’s washroom is often busier than the men’s. There will be a line up of women waiting while the men’s washroom is available. Why, with this new transgender issue, are there no women filming themselves going into the men’s washroom? Why is it all about taking away the privacy of the women’s washroom?

Some supporters of laws that restrict the use of public toilets said allowing transgender people to choose their restroom could lead to women and children being attacked.  They said they feared that men could pose as transgender people and use legal protections as a cover. read more at bbc.com

How can women and children be protected from sexual predators if they can’t even rely on having privacy while they remove their underwear to use the restroom? How many transgender people are there compared to everyday gender people? As a woman who was attacked/ molested by a sexual predator in a public place (when I was a minor), I’m really against this.

Public restrooms have been used as hookups by gay men. But, until now they have kept it to the men’s restrooms. Now, when you send your child into the washroom, watching the door for their reappearance, timing how long it should take in your mind and somewhat nervously trying to let them grow up and become independent… how can you not wonder what will children be exposed to now that men have free access to the washroom?

Why not leave the public washrooms for the women be for families and the washrooms for the men can be for those who are male or sexually fluid? I can only see washroom sharing as making women easier prey for men taking upskirt photos from under the washroom stall (and other activities which I really don’t want to have to protect myself from).

Why are transgender people being put on such a great pedestal? Why are their needs given so much importance and consideration? So much that women and children are being thrown out of the lifeboats entirely.

Jailed for Tricky Sex

Judge Roger Dutton described Newland as “scheming,” “deceitful” and “highly manipulative.”

“You were so convincing in your cruel deception of [the victim] she thought she had finally found a man she could love and be with,” he said, reported Mirror Online.

Newland acted for her own “sexual gratification” and ignored the “devastating” impact on the victim, he added.

Women have been saying the same things (read the judge’s pronouncement above) about men for as long as I can remember. Yet, none of them are arrested and jailed for their actions. Why is this woman? Is it because she used a fake penis instead of having a real one?

I don’t think tricking someone into having sex is ok. I don’t think either gender should, with or without sex toys.
