Yeah, somehow I missed that memo about objectification equalling admiration. Nonetheless, it took a long time for me to accept the fact that very few men in my life were actually ‘appreciating’ me for my brains or personality, and it took even far longer for me to realize that this was because very few men were actually capable of doing so. Only then did I start to feel sadder about the poor condition of the modern man but better about myself.
