Why is it okay for a woman to be the object of affection but not okay to be a sex object? It's okay to love women, but not to want sex with them? We hear feminists these days constantly accusing men and the media of treating women like sex objects, never admitting men might actually feel affection, admiration or even romance for women they are turned on by. Such feminists actually reduce men to sex objects - they can't imagine men seeing sexy women in any way other than sexual. In reality though, judging from the world around us and the number of marriages and romances out there, most men see sex as something that is shared with an interested, consenting, sexy partner. A man with a healthy libido and a healthy view of women and himself sees sex as not just intercourse, but mutual respect, romance and love, perhaps even marriage and kids. Yes some men think sex is just copulation and that women are there just for them - and a tiny subset of these men think a woman's interest and consent are not necessary. There are laws to protect women from such men. So don't listen to sexist feminists who objectify men by claiming men objectify women. The affection men have for sexy women is real. And there's every reason for women to have the same affection back.
