If you evaluate a persons potential as a spouse based on their reproductive fitness, you see them as a sex object.
When a man evaluates a woman's attractiveness by her youth, weight, breast size, firmness of behind, and overall attractiveness, he treats her as a sex object. Her value as a person does not matter, only her fertility and reproductive potential matter.

I kicked my "dumb booby blond bimbo" addiction before I was even old enough to date. Is it too much to ask for grown up, mature women to begin
to see the person inside of a man?
I am tired of fitness tests. How would you feel if every few days your husband pulled out a measuring tape to see if your breasts were still sufficiently large for his taste?
Gender equality has two parts. It is time for women to begin to do their part.
When I see a grown woman chasing after a "bad boy", I feel the same way you do when you see a grown man chasing after a young dumb "booby blonde". Success, wealth, power, and general Robert Redford-isness are all different versions of the same type of male sexualization and objectification.
I am a person. Not a spoon-full of genetic material.
