Men are more and more under threat! watch

    In the West, men are becoming more and more alienated.

    This has become apparent during the Charlotte Proudman sexism row.

    We all have to think over and over about things we say even though it's not offensive, not misogynistic and not sexist.



    I should be allowed to comment on the appearance of a woman I find attractive without being called a pig.

    This whole ordeal is ludicrous.

    She felt insulted and objectified because she was being messaged on LinkedIn about her physical appearance, rather than her professional skills and qualifications. To be honest I think her reaction was justified.

    There was no objectification.


    "In social philosophy, objectification means treating a person as a thing."

    As far as I can see, he was complimenting her appearance as a woman, not an object or thing.


    So you think it was justified to publicly vilify an idiotic man, both ruining your own career and his?

    You're a joke.

    Feminism won't become a thing. Most normal people men and women like receiving compliments. There will be backlash against stuff like this.

    Do we care?
    Objectification is the mental or physical act of treating a person like an object. By complimenting her with the word "stunning" he was saying she looked nice. A woman does not have to be an object to be attractive.

    While perhaps a little peculiar to send this woman a message on a professionals' website, it's disgusting that she's decided she is entitled to try and ruin his career by taking this to the press.

    I think it's increasingly worrying that one can be publicly vilified for sending a misjudged comment on social media - especially a comment that was not sexual or inappropriate in nature. What sort of society do we live in that you can't compliment a mam or woman?

    What next? Male reporter scandalised for saying "nice dress" to woman?
