15. I could see claiming objectification when you decide

 

an entire group of people exists for one purpose.

So if you claimed women exist solely as baby-factories or blacks solely as cheap farm equipment.

That is objectification.

You are literally taking that entire group of people and turning them in to a singular object. But that is pretty extreme and rare these days.

Instead it's come to mean a man noticing that a woman has bits he doesn't and being ok with that.

So noticing that a woman on the street is attractive (just that, nothing more) is objectifying her because you didn't from your .2 seconds of visual interaction decide that you valued her thoughts, dreams, personal aspirations, etc. You just noticed how she looked.

It's a great metamorphosis of the word from the rad-fem perspective because that occurs literally everywhere and at every time. They will never "fix" human nature so it gives them stuff to complain about forever.
