The name of the creature is an object head, so as people have said it's a pun.

Plus the phrase "the object of my _________" isn't objectifying in and of itself emotion_facepalm it's a really common phrase that can be used where object is taken to mean literal object/centre/focus etc.

When I saw the title I was all like rolleyes and then I realized what you meant. I totally agree with you. It's a sentient being, it shouldn't be called an "object" of anything.

It reminds me of an anime called "Dead Leaves"... I doubt they are really related. That anime is very strange...

I doubt they are too seeing as TV objectheads aren't that uncommon

The update personally made me more think of The Property of Hate
A TV head and a monster with an odd number of eyes
reminds me of RGB and Madras
though neither of the item's clothing styles match, it's more the idea that does

It's a play on the phrase "object of my affection"

Has nothing to do with objectifying.

What is it with these overly-sensitive threads lately?
We had one about Fox "pencils" because OP thought the word "p***s" was offensive. neutral
I mean, there's being courteous and accommodating to others and there's just being plain ridiculous.

Is the phrase "object of my affection" lost on most people these days? Because the item's name is a play on it. I can't remember what this type of phrase is called in literary terms, though.

Object heads are pretty popular, I'm surprised someone could construe the obvious pun as anything else tbh. Like, I defs get where OP is coming from, but "object of my affection" is a very very very VERY old and commonly-used term. o;

Interesting points of views but I thought it was an asian culture thing.

Because Oni are demons and certain Oni can possess inanimate objects.

Or was that Yoma, I'm not sure but they are similar in a way.

listen here cumslut im a polysexual, transracial Dutch fairykin and you're oppressing me by silencing my opinions. And next time refer to me with fae pronouns. uwu

I'm also self diagnosed logophobic so you should refrain from talking to me with words and only communicate through interpretive dance.
