Nouns. A noun is a person, place, or thing. I think we, as a society, have forgotten that not all nouns are the same. Let’s have a third grade level grammar lesson, shall we?
A person is not a place. Mr. Jones is not 5th Street. A person is not a thing. Mr. Jones is also not a hamburger. While all of these words classify as nouns, they aren’t the same.
We have a tendency to look at people as meat, as objects, when they are people. You aren’t a burger, a building, or a kangaroo. You are a person. A special type of noun.
Don’t look at other human beings as objects. No matter how your brain would like to objectify someone else, they aren’t an object. You’ve got a handle on the noun part. Now, you just have to understand that not all nouns are the same.
We cool with that, society?
