Anecdote by Dennis

My friend Dennis set this as his google status today, figured I'd share it:

While stretching in physical therapy today I noticed an older woman looking at me. I smiled politely and she said, "You have such long, handsome legs. They just go on forever. Do you play basketball?" Unaccustomed, to such attention I said, "I did, but I'm not good enough to play for UM." I took a moment to reflect on the constant objectification of women in our society and how that made me feel. Then I remembered that I'm not an object because I'm not a woman.
