Almost every goddamned time I hear a guy talk about a woman, the very first thing he's gotta comment on is her appearance (this almost never happens with roles reversed or guys talking about other guys, unless it's relevant). Radio, TV shows, movies, strangers' conversations, and worst of all; some of my own fucking friends. Of course if I point this out and calmly explain why I find it to be offensive, demeaning and objectifying, I get shit for it. How about if every time I talk about you in conversation, I start out about you with shit like "he's cute, but he smells funny" or "he's nice but REALLY ugly". How would that shit make YOU feel!?

Ummm i hear women describe men objectivy all the time and its a LOT of people and in different states on top of that so yeah this is normal, very stupid at times, but normal all the same. And guys do describe guys this way i hear people describe the "scrawny weak ass white boy" in the weight room or some random person they saw on the street a lot we describe them this way because its easy for people to picture people they dont know this way. sure people use words poorly when doing this but its normal and more often then not its used in a manner that is helpful. the problem for you is that the sources you look at are the ones that are very poorly worded. And if your complaining about the people that word things poorly on purpose to objectify woman as their end goal well thats like complaining that the Nazis killed Jews. you cant change it but you can educate future generations that this is bad to avoid it.

Grammar-Nazi Ryu says "Hail sentence-structure!"

But seriously, guys are always judging us based on how attractive we are. Yes, some meat-heads judge other guys based on muscle-structure, but this is extremely rare when compared to women being objectified the way we are.
