Clarify, objectum sexuality doesn’t only refer to “sexual” attraction, it also includes romantic attraction. Not all objectum sexuals use their objects for sexual gratification. I mention this because OS can sometimes be mistaken for a paraphilia, and this might further contribute to the negative stereotype.
Agreed, and I don’t think there are any strict definitions on what constitutes normal anyway. Humans like fitting in and do things both consciously and unconsciously to blend into certain situations. Maybe ‘masking’ is just when it feels the most laborious or deliberate.
