One brave, important man has just said what we’ve all known to be true since the first Magic Mike film came out: Men are objects.
Columnist Martin Daubney has nobly called out the real targets of rampant sexism in our society: Handsome white men.
Martin is in possession of XY chromosomes and a laptop, which of course qualifies him to make such bold assertions about men being so hard done by in life. In a column for The Telegraph, Daubney describes the hot, salivating, sweaty, aroused mess all women have become since they discovered that abdominal muscles are quite visually pleasing.
And — get this — he even allowed his publishers to include a photograph of his own face — thereby risking his very own objectification. The man is a prodigy, and a hero among men (See below, but please respect this man’s right to be more than just a bearded face #saveDaubney).
Don’t worry, don’t worry — a man like Martin Daubney doesn’t make such sweeping observations about gender without backing them up with solid evidence. What do you take him for, some kind of sex object?
Without further ado, here’s the incontrovertible proof that men are objectified more than women.
Exhibit A. MAGIC MIKE, The Sequel.
In which male stripper characters take their clothes off for a living, and female viewers perform secret devious objectification rituals with their eyes and loins.
Exhibit 2. JAMIE DORNAN, in 50 Shades of Grey.
In which a man emotionally, physically, and emotionally dominates a woman for the duration of the film and/or book.
In real life, this actor model man makes part of his living by being physically attractive and receives money to take his clothing off his perfect form.
