I haven't had anything said since September. I should have turned them in considering my child was with me and it was from our On Duty military police.

Yes. Almost everyone has been and its natural/human nature. Not some evil sexist cultural distortion left over from patriarchy.

Sadly not that I know. If it has happened without my knowledge them that's a happy thought

Does being cat called by a bunch of men while walking down the street count? Because that happened to me and all of my friends when we were young and pretty.

Yes thankfully. I'd be insulted otherwise.

I have been but it's not been bad. It's always been in flattering ways.

Does being told you have a nice body count? What about being called a "stud muffin/beefcake?"

Sexual objectification is a normal part of the human existence. I do it to others, others do it to me. It’s by no means something negative in anyway.

Yes its happened a lot. Everything from minor annoyance to severe violence. And with the minor stuff im not talking about just being checked out, i mean dehumaized.

Yes. Did I care? No. It was only the stalkers that concerned me.

Yes, stalkers are hard to get rid of too. Sorry you had to deal with that.

Not nearly enough.

03/15/15 4:51 am

Probably but I probably also paid no attention. Until recently, I was very good at blocking any signals of that sort because my ex was very jealous. Now, I have a hard time recognizing them.

Fortunately for all women, toxic wastes are destroying testosterone and soon men will have no sex drive. They will no longer work hard to earn the attention of females. No inappropriate glances. Minimal romances. Life will be better.

03/15/15 8:12 am

I think you misspelled "internet porn."

Lol, i had to read that like four times. Inappropriate glances are a good thing? Mens testosterone is being destroyed? Cant say ive heard that one before.

LOL... Obviously I believe in the right for a woman to be respected, however I believe women would be disappointed if sexual tension disappeared.

I think you can have insane sexual tension without being inappropriate.

03/15/15 11:51 am

Unless you're using inappropriate as synonymous with sexual.

AJ-clearly the issue of sexual objectification runs the gamut of a casual glance at a sexi person to debasing behavior. The first is normal and complimentary. The later, obtrusive and uncultured.

Ok? Thats what i said in my own comment lol. You have yet to explain how being inappropriate is good or how mens testosterone is being destroyed...

Inappropriate is very subjective. Many relationships begin with lust that marches on to love. The lustful male MAY turn into a responsive lover. That does not excuse or defend lecherous rude behavior.

Reduced testosterone??? The growing number of infertile couples is alarming. The cause is unknown, however there is substantial suspicion that the use of birth control pills is related to biological feminization of the male.

aj1545 Cat Lady
03/16/15 7:58 am

Haha. Cuz there are no lustful women. And how do you figure birth control is doing that?

HammeringMan Gods Away On Business

The chemicals in oral contraceptives are not degraded by the female and are excreted into the environment.they remain active as feminine markers which is suspected to be sufficient to decrease male fertility

aj1545 Cat Lady
03/16/15 2:22 pm

No more or less than any other medication. And our fertility rate is fine, i see no evidence of it "feminizing" men lol

HammeringMan Gods Away On Business
03/16/15 10:22 pm

I am sure we are just reading different journals. Regardless the cause, fertility rates are dropping in Western cultures.

aj1545 Cat Lady
03/17/15 5:28 am

And causation has been proved? Over all the other possible reasons fertility is dropping? I dont know about different journals, i havent seen this in any.

AJ: I have tossed out an idea, not an edict. Alarmists have announced that the last mail capable of fathering a child has already been born! I rather doubt that. Infertility is a serious problem. No widely accepted causation has been identified.

aj1545 Cat Lady
03/17/15 1:49 pm

Exactly. Thats why claiming its happening and is caused by birth control is ridiculous.

AJ: you are correct, however I will hold you to the same exacting standards. Can I expect each and everyone of your comments to begin with: "this is only my opinion"? CiteTheSource would be pleased.

Prepare for your reading list. Report due on Monday.

03/14/15 10:28 pm

I know it may sound ignorant, but what do you mean? Have I been the object of sexual desire without any emotional engagement? If you mean that, yes. Did I feel offended? No.

What. I just said it wasn't me. That's all I said. I did not say objectification did not occur or that it is welcome. I did not imply that "By the way, you have very nice breasts," is a responsible conversation starter.
