College-educated liberal feminists don't understand why it's natural for men to objectify women

Dennis Prager on

Nor does it mean that objectification is "misogynistic."

It is repeatedly said -- primarily by the college-educated -- that the male sexual objectification of women is an expression of misogyny. This is nonsense. The single greatest proof is that gay men sexually objectify men. If heterosexual men are women haters because they sexually objectify women, then gay men are man haters because they sexually objectify men.

It is male nature -- the homosexual male's as much as the heterosexual male's -- for a man to objectify the object of his sexual desire. Not only does this have nothing to do with hatred of women but in the ideal circumstance -- marriage -- a man's periodic sexual objectification of his wife is a wonderful thing. That's why a woman will wear sexy clothing in the bedroom: to render herself -- the woman who, 99 percent of the time, is his wife, his friend, his partner, the mother of his children, the successful businesswoman, the accomplished homemaker -- a sexual object. The longer a marriage can sustain the ability of the husband to periodically see his wife as a "sex object," the happier that marriage will be. If you don't believe me, ask divorce lawyers how good that is for a marriage, and how destructive its absence can be to a marriage.

It is also helpful to note that men who put their hand on a woman's buttocks are not necessarily misogynists. They lack the requisite self-control of a gentleman. But lacking self-control is not the same as misogyny. And haven't progressives gotten rid of the term "gentleman"?

That I have felt it necessary to write this brief primer on male sexuality for the college-educated is nothing less than a tragedy. My mother, who never attended college, knew everything written here. It is even likely that my Polish-Jewish grandmother, who never attended high school, knew everything written here. But for college graduates of the last 50 years -- or even worse, graduate-school graduates -- much of if this is new -- and, therefore, controversial.

If this does not convince you how much of an intellectual wasteland universities have become, nothing will.
