On The Charge Of Objectification
Men objectify women and women objectify men.
Just like how employers objectify their employees and how society objectifies teachers, security guards, plumbers and different sorts of workers.
The moment you walk into a restaurant and place your order without listening to your server’s life story, his hopes and dreams, you are objectifying him. That is to say, you are merely seeing him as a tool for memorizing your order and delivering it to your table.
Humans objectify because they are beings with a physical existence. Until humans can transcend the physical plane and exist only in energy form, they will continue to try to make sense of their world by objectifying.
This is a human condition.
