Many guys do treat women like objects, (some women do the same to men, however) and some don't even realize it. Women are of course, anything but. If you find yourself in a conversation which resembles the following, the male needs a reality check:
John: Hey, I called you several times, why didn't you answer?
Jane: I was out.
John: Well where were you and why did you go out for? You should have told me.
Jane: I was out shopping, is that alright with you?
John, is possessive and his subconscience thinks Jane is "his" instead of "his girlfriend"
John needs to meet with a psychologist.
