"Tired Of Being An Object ?" as written by Ola Salo, Mikael Bjoern-ingel Jepsson, Lars Henrik Ljungberg, Sylvester David Olof Schlegel and Martin Karl Axen Persson....
- Are you tired of being an object?
Or did you never get the chance
To be one,
And now you want to make sure
There's no fun
You've been missing?
- Are you tired of being an object?
Or are you just jealous
That you ain't one,
Now you realized that those objects
Do all the kissing?

Well don't project you spleen
On the girl on the magazine
-You never know,
Maybe she's feeling quite comfortable
The only human right for which I'm
Gonna fight
Is everybody's right to sometimes feel
Irresistible

- Uh-oh, maybe it's you who need
Confidence?
- Maybe it's you who need real freinds?
Well she doesn't need your voice
'Cause she's already got one

And though she doesn't push
With as much force
It can even be stronger than yours
When she uses it
In a sensi-sensi-sensual whisper

Well, don't project your bore
On the girl on the dance floor
- She doesn't at all find
The men's looks abusive
She doesn't want your shield
- Maybe she's the one who's free
- Maybe sometimes getting fucked
Can be amusing...?

Well, don't project your bore
On the girl on the floor
- Don't project your bile
On the girl you can dial
She doesn't want your shield
- Maybe she's the one who's free
- Maybe sometimes getting fucked
Can be amusing...?

    General CommentThe only human right for which I'm gonna fight
    Is everybody’s right to sometimes feel irresistable

    I'd never thought of that before, and I think it's amazing. Great song from a great band

    My InterpretationThis song makes a direct statement about those who feel the need to protect women from their own desires- in this case, the desire to be seen as attractive. The alternation between "slut-shaming" and assigning a victim status to women who dare to act in an overtly sexual manner is seen among both social conservatives and radical feminists*- indeed, I've seen a number of instances where radfems have silenced women (particularly sex workers) who disagree with the doctrine of objectification = victimization. The power inherent in self-determination WRT sexuality is pointed out, as is the insulting nature of assuming that someone needs a shield.

    *Not saying all radfems are like this, just that there are some rather vocal radfems who do hold this position.
