Yes, that's clear, but some people in this thread don't seem to be getting it.

What wasn't clear to me is whether that offensive, objectifying language used by the other thread's OP was the OP reporting the specific words that were going through his head in his own interior monologue, or whether they were his attempt to translate his mental attitudes and reactions into words for our benefit. Although I don't know whether it ultimately makes any difference.
