The Latest Wow: Man Objects to Being Eye Candy

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Here’s one man’s response to my post “The Latest Wow: He Says ‘No’ to Sex”

“I know I’m in the minority, but I don’t like being a magnet for women. My physical appearance isn’t who I am … it’s not how I know myself. Before a relationship even gets off the ground I want to make it perfectly clear that my physical appearance means little to me, and if it means something to you, it separates us. If you’re not drawn to something deeper about me, I’m not interested.”

How many women have thought or said those very words? How many complain about being sexual objects? How many long for a connection that runs deeper than the surface? How many want to be valued for who they are? Zillions.

Obviously, these concerns cross gender lines. Men, as well as women, resent being mere eye candy . . . we all want to be valued for who we are inside.

What are your thoughts?
