5 Reasons Men are NOT Objects

The struggle of Man is REAL.

It seems with every progressive step forward we make, Society is taking us two steps backwards… dragging us down to our depraved primal selves. As far as men are concerned, the calendar might say 2016, but it’s still very much the 1950s.

This one’s for the XY chromosomers struggling with 21st century sexual objectification… You’re not alone, brothers.

1. Biceps aren’t Objects… They’re MUSCLES

Arnie

Read it and weep, bigots: You can’t objectify it if it’s not an object.

It’s simple science. Our bodies aren’t objects, they’re MUSCLES. We’re tired of having to explain this… And, frankly, we’re also tired of hearing how the sole purpose of our bodies is to “please women.” We curl dumbbells not to “please” women, but to get stronger so that we can… curl BIGGER dumbbells.

2. We’re smart and stuff

5 sets, 12 reps each? Take only two scoops per serving? Dinner at 5?

Guess what: That takes math.

Do we like math? Hell no. Yet we resent the “simple man” stereotype imposed on us by Society. We’re not simple. We’re complex creatures capable of addition and subtraction and reading and… thinking. We’re more than MUSCLES… we’re also BRAINS.

3. We appreciate camaraderie

Round up the boys and we’ll show you what else we have: Hearts full of love.

Whether we’re meeting for beer games, Madden tournaments, bar hops, cock fights, circle jer—um… beer games… it doesn’t matter: We’re sure to have a good time and we’re sure to have each other’s back. Because we’re homies and homies aren’t OBJECTS.

4. We like to PARTY

OldSchool

Keg stands, reefer shacks, and wine coolers—WOO!—shotskis, beer pong, and jungle juice—YAA!—mud wrestling, pole dancing, BODY SHOTS, AND BLACK LIGHTS—SHIIIT!—BONG RIPS, ICE LUGES, BILLY IDOL, VODKA, YES!, TEQUILA, PIÑATAS, TWISTER, ALRIGHT!, CEMENT GLUE, GERMAN SHEPHERDS, COCAI—!

…wait, what is this article about again?

5. Also, generally speaking, men are viewed as people, regardless of their dress, vocation, or rank of intelligence, whereas women have historically bore the brunt of culturally-crafted, socially-sanctioned, media-mandated sexual objectification

BCranston

When compared to the fairer sex, we’re not objects. For reasons known & unknown, we’ve sort of been given a pass on the demeaning ritual of objectification. Perhaps because we’re often the perpetrators of objectification?

Conclusion: We’re dickheads, not objects.

If Weed Depletes Testosterone, How do you Explain Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Even if you haven’t watched the 1977 bodybuilding documentary Pumping Iron, you’ve surely seen the infamous image of stoned Ah-nuld celebrating his sixth Mr. Olympia trophy with a joint & fried chicken. Staunch marijuana activists often cite the scene in support of their legalization causes. (Surprisingly, no fried chicken joints have jumped on it yet.)… [Read More]

Does ZMA Boost Testosterone?

The short answer is Yes. ZMA does boost Testosterone… but there’s a “but”… a BIG “but.”  (We like big buts and we cannot lie). Before we get into that, we need to first explain: What is ZMA? If you’re using a T-boosting supplement, odds are you’ve been exposed to ZMA. Essentially, ZMA is a popular… [Read More]

If Weed Depletes Testosterone, Then How do you Explain Nick Diaz?

MMA’s post-Brock Lesnar villain Nickolas Diaz is no stranger to negative press. Given the fighter’s blatant disregard for the UFC’s anti-weed policies, Diaz would have us believe that he’s impervious to their regulations. Unfortunately, following Nick Diaz’s unanimous decision loss to Anderson Silva in UFC 183, one of Diaz’s drug tests turned up positive for… [Read More]

10 Things NOT to Do in the Locker Room

1. DON’T take selfies You saw this one coming. You knew it’d be here, which is why we’re attacking it first. No thanks to the CDC, the selfie has spread its plague of narcissism, its vile self-centered, soul-diseased scourge against humanity across every nook & cranny of First World Americana… and, unfortunately, this includes the… [Read More]

Wondering why some of your co-workers are blasting Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band from their desks? Or maybe you’re totally confused over why your boss has started burning patchouli incense in his office every afternoon. The short answer: Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (The shorter answer: LSD). If you haven’t heard, LSD is the hot new workplace nootropic that all the ubersmart twentysomethings… [Read More]
