Am I allowed to compliment you on your looks anymore? This isn't a troll question and in fact I won't even anonymize my name. Just curious because in the days of MeToo and Times Up, you have to tread carefully. If I comment on a woman's beauty, am I just reducing her to a sexual object? Is there any way to get around that generalization? Sometimes when I see a pretty girl, the first thing that comes to my lizard brain is to give her a compliment. But I feel like attractive women already know they're attractive and maybe they get sick of hearing it. Then again, it probably just depends on who's saying it: if it's Chris Hemsworth, I'm sure any woman would melt, but if it's some hobo off the street, nobody values that opinion. I don't know, too many things going through my head all at once. It's hard enough trying to relate to people without having to remember all these rules.
