I didn't start playing FIFA until 2010 but I can't stop now. but I have pretty much all types of games except the "you hit me, then I hit you" type of game. That "inversion" game looked cool but got panned.

stolimarie: I objectify men who are tall and can fly planes. I'd do it all day if I could.
But I digress.

It does pay to be a woman working in high tech info systems around 99% of men. I don't ever feel like I'm at a disadvantage because I am a woman. Quite the opposite.


I'm not tall but I do have my pilot's license.

How you doin'?

From my experience, some women enjoy the occasional objectification. It can be good fun under the right circumstances.

As a homely woman, I have a unique perspective on observing men. I've always been able to do that because men instantly will thoroughly nullify a woman's existence after they've judged her to be unworthy of attention and lacking in appeal. it's fascinating to watch them watching women, and also fascinating to see how oblivious they are to making some women very uncomfortable with their focused scrutiny.

Oh, and you think it's funny to be buying things for my wife? You think that just because we've got very liberal attitudes towards sexuality that you can start sending her gifts? Maybe if she likes you she'll arrange to meet you somewhere and give you some Thank You Blowjob, like that'd be cool and I won't notice when I can taste the bitter of your issue on her lips when I kiss her? That the musky scent of your sexuality on her cheek would go unnoticed as I lay beside her in our marital bed, enjoined in blissful sexual congress? Maybe because we've had a guest or two in our bed, or those parties we've attended, or that convention we go to every year makes it just fine to hit on her, buying her ass-beads and vibrators and dildos and nipple clamps and harnesses and dog collars and those really heavy Clejuso handcuffs and a riding crop and spike heel boots with fishnet stockings thongs and corsets and spreader bars and bundles of 3/8" nylon rope so you can be amused by her DD bosom and big, round, smooth backside and get her a Brasilian waxing and lay her back on my kitchen table wearing a ball-gag and her wrists and ankles tethered so the beautiful, sexually liberated woman I love can be your plaything for the afternoon without so much as a nice bottle of bourbon for a "Thank you" or flowers or even a card and a "thanks for inviting me in, hope to see you guys again soon. Sincerely John 'The Plumber' Tuttle", like I'd think it was cool to give my beloved bride that most intimate of kisses between her thick, creamy thighs only to find the traces of your visit to inflame my territorial passion and bring me to a turgid fury, prompting me to penetrate her deeply and vigorously as our combined issue blended to thrill her both physically as a raw primate, but intellectually as a post-modern woman flouting all the contemporary conventions of monogamy, affording her the excitement of playing the slut with the fun of getting gifts and the safety of knowing I found it just as thrilling as she did, validating my choice of partner as a desirable woman while validating my own masculinity that while she could copulate bare-back with John Tuttle in reckless abandon, accepting his gifts along with his manhood, she chooses to return to me? Like that's just Jim Dandy with me?

Is that how you think it is at my house? Huh?

Well, now I'm curious. I didn't mean it like that, because I thought it was only ladies sending pics around here. But I've added an E to my P now. I think it was SR_NightBane and WarszawaScream who are being objectified, as well as DirkTheDaring? EIP

I appreciate that the article is structured to follow the scientific principle. Bravo. More of this, please.

I think the most immediately useful piece of information learned is that both genders behave the same, regardless of cause. Too often, progress on gender fairness issues is stymied by the mindset that "society's" flaws are exclusively men's flaws. If we are in denial about women's roles in shaping culture, we can't fix it.

Sure, Maxim teaches frat boys unhealthy attitudes towards women, but we consider the source and frat boys's opinions aren't the last word. However, Cosmopolitan teaches girls unhealthy attitudes toward themselves, and that is far more destructive and dangerous, and is often accepted without any critical challenge. It does the frat boys's work for them.

Cosmo is evil.

2012-07-26 04:14:57 PM

Pocket Ninja: Regardless of gender, participants consistently recognized women's sexual body parts more easily when presented in isolation. Men's sexual body parts, on the other hand, were more memorable as part of their entire bodies.

This isn't about sexual objectification. This is about respect and admiration. See, when one notices a woman, one notices her as a sum comprised of various parts that are each unique and splendid in both their individuality and their cohesiveness as a whole. One does not merely see a woman, in other words. One sees her elegant foot, the smooth curve of her calf, the delicate swell of her knee and the soft line of her thigh. The rounded plushness of her heart-shaped ass, the dimple in the small of her back. Her breast, her other breast, her breasts together. Her neck, rising above her breasts, and her head, atop her neck, atop her breasts. Both breasts. The nipples on her breasts, like small erasers. Her eyes, her breasts. Her lustrous hair as well as her breasts. And her breasts. And so we see the whole woman, but we know that her perfection is the result of every single part of her coming together in a beautiful harmony of legs, breasts, neck, breasts, foot, breasts, and breasts. It is an homage, really, to visualize people in this way, to recognize that every small part is merely one element of the whole.

And what of men? They are looked upon, seen as one package, one blank slate, one hunk of meat. There is no recognition of what defines them, of their own body's symphony and perfect orchestration. No, just: man. Oooga. Ugh. Man make fire. Man like meat. Ooogh. It sickens me, how unfair gender can be.


Thanks Pocket Ninja, one of the best posts if seen.

Ooh, but I still smell her. Women! What can you say? Who made 'em? God must have been a farkin' genius. The hair... They say the hair is everything, you know. Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls... just wanted to go to sleep forever? Or lips... and when they touched, yours were like... that first swallow of wine... after you just crossed the desert. T*ts. Hoo-ah! Big ones, little ones, nipples staring right out at ya, like secret searchlights. Mmm. Legs. I don't care if they're Greek columns... or secondhand Steinways. What's between 'em... passport to heaven. I need a drink. Yes, Mr Sims, there's only two syllables in this whole wide world worth hearing: p*ssy. Hah! Are you listenin' to me, son? I'm givin' ya pearls here

Women, this is an open call for you to objectify men sexually any which way you want to.

We welcome it.

Women as well as men objectify women sexually so it is only fair that you start to look at men as things to have sex with as well as things that pay for stuff...
