Because only men objectify. - MH
Women are shallow, too. The hot bartender at happy hour on Wednesday called me “Babe” and “Sweetheart” and I just about melted. A less attractive guy, or a guy with fewer social skills? Ugh. But this guy? He can get it.
Out of character incoming
To be honest as a man I’m guilty of the same thing: I know that there are some things that bother me only when unattractive women do them, especially when it comes to flirting with me. It’s just how the human mind works.
However, unlike some women, I do not then go complain about it to other people. The other day I was talking to some girl, and she was complaining about some other guy had been being “creepy”. She then proceeded to describe how he was creepy. As far as I could tell, he was creepy because he treated her exactly how I do but he was less physically attractive. I don’t think she realized this, however.
It’s good to at least be aware of what double standards you have. Plus I like to point stuff like this out because I’m kind of tired of our culture pretending that men are “creepy” for daring to flirt with a woman slightly out of their league.
