Words Whipping up Whimsical Waves of Notion

She is not an object

125 Comments

She is not a toy for men’s pleasure. Everywhere we see protest going on against female trading. Yes, many a times, she is trapped into prostitution.

Even then, there is another side for this objectification. She herself accounts herself as an object for his satisfaction. She is treating herself as a sex object. She is stereotyped to live in that way. And rarely does she understand her own mind-trap. It’s all about interpretation.

So Girls, wake up and most importantly awaken your sisters.

  1. The greatest culprit is society and it’s patriarchal system.

    • You know jacque, even while we blame on these patriarchal system, there is one thing which is easily ignored.. that’s her attitude towards the issue. Many a times she is only objectifying herself, treating herself as a sex object, and its not the man to be blamed for that. And yes, she was tuned to live in that way and now it requires immense pressure to make her understand the real scenario..

    This post by Akhila really caught my attention. Girls, women, sisters, ladies you are not an object, you are a human being with purpose. You are not a sex object to live only to satisfy men… You are much more.

  3. This post has got a lot of attention and definitely a lot of opinions. I think it is a little more than just culture or education. I think that for a society to function, a man and a woman should align themselves and their rights in harmony as one cannot live without the other. Education and awareness is the key but respecting one self is equally important. Respecting yourself as much as you respect one another will create the right balance, a full- fledged war on proving one sex better than the other is only going to cause more anger that further brings up a very confused generation of people.

  4. wonderful and eye opening post. Girl/women aren’t objects they are people who keep pushing people to be successful, one who could stand by his man’s side when he enjoys his success..:)

    पौरुष का परचम लिए घूमने वालों, औरत जमीन नहीं कुछ और भी है..!!

    Woman’s body is not her only homeland, She is something else too..

    TO all, who are waving the flag of Manhood everywhere, the woman is not a land or property only, She means something else too.. !!

  7. It’s a result of cultural conditioning. Women have fallen victim for patriarchy for many years. Glorification of motherhood was also a big ploy of the patriarchal society. To be honest many women are not ready to break the cages and free their mind. Getting married at a particular age and if someone doesn’t making her look like a failure and breaking her confidence is also a way of the patriarchal society to oppress women. women have to understand fact she can offer much more than her body. Having said that , there are lot of women who are gold diggers … If you know what I mean ..

  12. Yes she is not an object to play with. But uneducated, orphan girls are often dragged into this shameful act, just for money. This must come to an end, but corrupt men don’t let it happen. What we all can do is spread awareness….

  18. Prostitution is Carried out illegally. Girls are being abducted, tricked and pushed into flesh trading. They are forced. They don’t go all by themselves

  19. more complicated!

    prostitution is a full fledged profession, I think we should respect the people who are involved rather than look down on them, (men and women), make laws so that they are not abused or ill treated because they are in flesh trade!

    • It’s complicated in the way that Not many people are escaped from the thought of objectification, being prostitutes or not..

      • Objectification is more complicated that this! it requires a series of conversation. you should have been there when we were making fun of being a misogynist last night and how every phrase and act we do, can be misogynistic and objectification, and how it is that natural!
