Hostility, Objectification Go Hand-In-Hand
Phil is a strip club patron who says that f-ing is all men really want from women, and whose philosophy of life includes “The Four Fs”: Find ‘em. Feel ‘em. F-k ‘em. Forget ‘em.
A lot of times a woman knows that she’s looking really good and she’ll use that and flaunt it and it makes me feel like she’s laughing at me and I feel degraded… If I were actually desperate enough to rape somebody it would be from wanting that person, but also it would be a very spiteful thing, just being able to say ‘I have power over you and I can do anything I want with you.
Researchers found that pickup artists, with their goal of random sex with lots of partners, tend to both objectify women and feel hostility toward them.
Meanwhile, too many frat boys sit around eating pizza and watching porn (weird, I know) as they cheer on the women’s abuse.
The September 11 terrorists were hostile toward women, too. They also objectified them.
- Women are temptresses.
- They and their bodies are all about sex.
- So stay covered up and don’t tempt me!
- I won’t shake your hand.
- And don’t come to my funeral!
I doubt any of them were troubled as women were stoned to death for being raped. But in reward for their terrorism they expected to receive 72 virgins in Heaven who would forever sexually serve them.
In this war between the sexes women are desired. But they are also “other,” the enemy, and not quite human. And good for just one thing – sex.
