Your paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote. I’ve never cat called a woman in my lifetime. When I wrote “objectified” I was referring to sexual interest. Are you telling me that you think anyone does not wish to be thought of as sexually desirable? The cosmetics business makes a killing exactly because women wish to be seen as desirable. That does not imply that I condone men being a asshole about it. I think we draw the line between objectification and being an asshole in a different place.

It would be an honest statement from me to say that it was disappointing when I turned to look at a woman that I walked past and saw that she was turned looking at a younger man walking next to me and not me. Can you honestly say that when that day arrives for you that it will not be disappointing? I don’t think women are any different from men in that regard.

There’s nothing wrong with your profile but can you understand that your intended persona might be seen as a projection of “I’m pretty!”? You even mention it with your words. I can’t help but think that you would like it to be seen as attractive. Not true? Is that not a hint that that level of objectification is desirable to you? No foul intended and perhaps you got carried away with your “man eater” thing. ;0)

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
