Quotes:

(1) Rosalie Maggio, The Dictionary of Bias-Free Usage (1991): ' Heavily reinforced by advertising, which uses women's sexuality to sell everything from razo blades to cars, this concept has had invidious results: prostitution, rape, laws and societies that "protect" women and relegate them to the status of children, words and attitudes that label women solely by their sexuality, even murder when the mythic cultural promise that women exist for the sexual pleasure of men goes unfulfilled.'

(2) Boxer Eddie 'Kid Natural' Scanlon (Ryan O'Neil) to Hillary Kramer (Barbra Streisand) in The Main Event (1979): ' You're treating me like an object. What do you think I am? A girl? '

(3) Mick Dugan (Alec Baldwin) and Tess McGill (Melanie Griffith) in Working Girl (1988):
-- Mick: ' Who the fuck died and made you Grace Kelly? '
-- Tess: ' I'm not steak. You cannot just order me.'

(4) Harry Bliss (Jack Nicholson) to Joan Spruance (Ellen Barkin) in Man Trouble (1992): ' I'm not one of these guys who's going to look upon you as an object (...) because I look upon a woman as a whole.'

(5) Carrie (Courtenay Cox) and David (Arye Gross) in The Opposite Sex (1993):
-- Carrie Davenport: ' You just shouldn't look at women as objects.'
-- David Crown: ' Oh, now, you see, I was looking at women objectively.'
-- Carrie Davenport: ' You know, I don't care for semantics.'
