The Objectification of Men

The Objectification of Men

Just as men are often blamed for objectifying women (and rightfully so), women objectify men. Not sexually, but as financial gets; As achievements or objects they can carry to events on their arms. 

A couple of days ago, I saw a video entitled, “How I Manifested a Husband.” I’m sure this is is just click bait, but it is inappropriate nonetheless.

To be clear, a husband is not an acquisition. A marriage is not something you talk about the same way you talk about finding the perfect car. A husband is a person with whom you develop a deep, vulnerable, trusting, abiding relationship with. A husband is not some thing that helps other people determine your self-worth.

I keep seeing it. The pictures of two people holding hands so that everyone can see their rings and watches. The pictures of his and hers Mercedes. But those aren’t images of an actual marriage. None of what’s real between people can be captured in an image and it’s all confusing people.  That’s not how this works. That’s not how *any* of this works.

That’s not how it works. That’s not how any of this works.
