Summary Understand that you are being baited and you are the prey even if you think you are the predator
I have always got annoyed when I hear that men objectify women. When I interact with a female, I am very conscious this is a person before me.
Just because my sexual drive is visually based does not mean I objectify her. My visual assessment of her skin, hair, eyes, breasts, hips etc are all markers that inform me that she is a young, healthy, well nourished, fertile woman which is exactly what my sex drive is supposed to identify. Even facial beauty has been assessed as a desire for symmetry which indicates few defects in her DNA sequence. Male sexual selection is thus an evolutionary tool to keep the DNA gene pool in optimum shape.
So my sex drive identifies the best targets but when I approach I communicate with a person - I do not objectify her. She on the other hand does objectify her body. She is the one who decides to wear the most revealing dress so to expose as much skin and cleavage as possible, she is the one who decides to wear impractical high heels to make her strut, she is the one who spends a fortune on skin and hair products. Men do not force or ask women to do these things.
Women objectify their image becasue they use their bodies as bait. Women go fishing for the largest, juiciest fish in the pond and lure their potential prey by being flashy bait. But bait does not just lure victims over, it also serves to hide the barbed hook underneath.
Clever fish will taste and nibble on the bait then swim away to live another day. Stupid fish will chomp down on the bait and discover the hook from which there is no escape without serious damage.
Conclusion Be clever. Enjoy tasting the bait but never commit unless you are ready to be hooked and consumed by the fisherwoman.
