Do you think rating how attracted you are to someone on a 1-10 scale is wrong?

Simpe question. If someone asks you how attracted you are to someone else do you think it's wrong to convey that with a number?

It is a toxic mindset because it inherently ranks people as you would a game and is casually dehumanizing.

Just as video game review scores poison video game discourse so do "attractiveness numbers" poison casual discourse.

Also just like video game review scores it's not a 1-10 range but a 7-10 range because everyone knows deep down it's rude to refer to someone as a 1. So you already feel the shame of doing it, you're just in denial.

The problem is when you say shit like "She's a 10", you're literally just assigning value to their looks and objectifying them.

Just fucking say you find them attractive.

It's something i genuinely dont think I've ever done. Always thought it was some joke trope from movies, not a real thing people do.
Im either attracted or not.

“Wrong” is a silly word choice for the context.

More appropriate options may include “shallow” or possibly “pathetic”.

Yes, reducting people to numbers and "grade reviewing" people with numbers IS objectfying people. No, I don't care if your review-of-products wired brain think you need to grade people for some reason, that's still objectfying.

The only people that I'm okay of giving a grade are those that give grades to others. Those get a 0.
