Interesting take, Sunil Malhotra.

I read that comment and thought something very similar.

This is difficult to say, but I am genuinely ashamed of not having been sexually harassed as much as other women in my circle. Isn’t that terrible? But it is not because I “enjoy objectification” — but because the world has taught me that objectification=admiration for a woman. If I haven’t been objectified as much as other women, maybe I’m not as pretty or sexy. Maybe I’m not worth as much as they are, or not perceived that way.

Obviously this is not true — I know my self-worth, and know it doesn’t rely on my waist or bra size. But we all seek social approval and admiration.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
