AVfM Radio: Objectification of Men

This is not the sexual objectification you are accustomed to hearing of. This is not objectification of individuals as objects of desire or beauty. The true objectification of human beings occurs when we treat them as disposable utilities, use them to the point of destruction, and then discard them like store brand appliances from wall mart. Male rape victims, thrown away and refused treatment by UN aid agencies – because once they’re broken, they’re no longer men, and thus, not human.

American veterans, similarly shattered by their combat experiences, returned home to be discarded. And unlike females who are objectified as items of desire or beauty, and thus protected and coveted, men objectified are discarded as if they are actual objects, and abandoned to die. They are also invisible, and rarely discussed under the heading of sexual objectification.
