So you see a person. Maybe they posted a picture on Facebook. Or maybe you just see
them pass by in public. But you automatically form an opinion based on whether or not
they appeal to you. Nice hair, but you don't like that piercing, so you give them a 6
and a half. You don't even need to rate that girl because she's so fat you feel
slightly sickened just looking at her. She's not even on the chart. Oh, but that guy,
he's gorgeous. He appeals to you. So now you like him. You'll treat him like a human
You see every person as a potential date.
You judge every person based on their sex appeal, their sexual worth.
You are so primitive that your entire social functioning is based on this one thing.
You treat them accordingly to how much they appeal to you personally.
If you see something they are doing that you don't like, you suggest "improvements,"
and offer criticism.
When you like someone, you objectify them. Because hell yeah, you want a piece of
And because of you, whoever you may be, and the millions of other people like you,
children learn from an early age to base their self worth on their physical
appearance. Everything is about sex. They must be appealing, they must be wanted, or
they are worthless.
This mindset makes us into mindless animals. It is beyond ignorance.
People can create. People can love, and imagine, and build. People can explore,
discover, and experience. We can worship, we can master the art of introspection, we
can make connections, and we can communicate. We can learn.
We are more than animals; our purpose is greater than reproduction, greater than
improving the gene pool at the expense of others' pain.
When you look at someone, see them as a potential friend. Not a potential date.
Rather than trying to decipher what you can from their appearance, and judging them,
let them be a blank canvas until they prove to you who they are. Condemn no one.
Never write some one off as worthless because you do not want to date them.
