Many Men Only View Women as Objects

It’s sad that I have to do this, but let me emphasize that not all men are in the same position. However, a large number of men view women as objects. The implication is that they think we wake up and go about our days doing everything to please others. Which starts at a very early age. Remember an elementary school where we couldn’t wear spaghetti straps because it will distract boys?

And it continues throughout life. It even happened in households with toxic views on things. A great example, a lot of households do not allow women to wear certain outfits when a certain company comes over. When it really should be focused on why you’re inviting that certain person over. There are a lot of men who are only able to grow because they feel like it would impress all of their friends and end up hurting her. They look at the girl as their toy to keep on the shelf and take off the shelf when you ready to play with it.

My Experience

There have been several men from my past who I genuinely thought was my friend. I wanted to go to them for advice or just simply hang out and watch movies. Little did I know, that they had alternative motives. They secretly had crushes on me or found themselves attracted to me. I feel like instances like that ruin friendships. Because one person likes someone in a different way it can make things very awkward.

Research

Livescience.com said “The results revealed that men are more attracted to their female friends than their female friends are to them“. I am not saying there aren’t men who genuinly want to have a friend of the oppisite sex, but if they find them attractive, it is hard.

Let’s face it. Hanging ou constantly with someone who is attractive can cause tension. But as adults, you learn to control it. Another thing tht caugth my eye in this article was “Although older adults reported fewer opposite-sex friends than the younger group did, everyone was very positive about these friendships, ranking them as overwhelmingly beneficial.”

In Conclusion

Although, many amazing relationsips start off as friendships, I think it depends on the maturity level. It is possible to be friends with someone in a platonic way and not look at them as an object, but it depends on the people.
