Recently, on a London night bus, two women were abused in a violent homophobic attack. A group of young men must have seen the two women on a date together. They followed them onto the bus, pestered them and demanded that they kiss . When the women refused to kiss for them, the men began punching them vigorously.
The women were objectified and sexualised which is disgusting and unacceptable. Allegedly men tried to force them to kiss, however their refusal resulted in masses amounts of blood and tears. Sadly, it is very common for lesbians to be sexualised when this shouldn’t be the case.
Lesbians aren’t the only ones being treated like objects. A lot of women, even in the 21st century, are thought of as being something for men to look at. This is ridiculous as women are their own people and have many more qualities than their looks. Objectification stems from female oppression when women were thought of to be inferior to men.
It’s disgusting that people still think that they can treat women like objects as though their only purpose is to please men. An abundance of women are deprived of feeling safe when on the streets or on public transport as they are in fear of being cat called or objectified.
Everyone should be treated equally and is entitled to live in peace
