77. It's not black and white like that.

Our daily social interactions are not a single block but an aggregate of hundreds or even thousands of individual encounters. Each one carries the potential to react differently.

In this way, we perform normative social reactions that collectively reinforce sexual objectification of women while at the same time treating women like human beings. With everyone it is a mix.

I've said it before but I'll say it again. Social oppression is diffuse and difficult to pinpoint with any single interaction. It isn't about a few bad guys. They exist but are not the chief source. The real source is a large body of ignorant men, and women, acting out oppressive tendencies without being self-aware.
