Where do we draw the line between empowerment and objectification? It’s a wonderful feeling to be validated for our beauty and sex appeal, but it’s easy for men (and women) to take advantage and exploit this inherent need we have to be adored and admired. Writer Rachel Shukert wrote a great piece about this very subject on Salon.com, in which she shares her own questioning of whether vanity is really worth the emotional and possibly harmful repercussions. Here’s a great quote from the piece. Enjoy!

“[T]he moment I put my very human craving for admiration in someone else’s hands is the moment I lost what was worth admiring.” –Rachel Shukert
