You have got to see this documentary about "objectum sexuals," people who fall in love with objects like fences and amusement park rides, one woman even married the Eiffel Tower. And they have sex. If you thought that men in love with Real Dolls was strange, wait until you see Strange Love: Married to the Eiffel Tower , which follows these fetishists all of them, for some reason, female. Interestingly, Objectum Sexuals - they call themselves OS people - believe their love with the objects are reciprocal and that they can telepathically communicate with them. Amy Wolf is in love with a fairground ride called Nacht, for which she writes poetry. Based on appearances, she seems like an out-and-proud lesbian, but has no interest in humans.

First, for those of you who didn't listen all the way to the end of last week's show and were outraged that I used the words irregardless and cogitate; it was a joke; although apparently some of you didn't think it was very funny. It followed the section about depression and was meant to show that I was depressed. A depressed Grammar Girl uses poor grammar. Get it? If you had listened to the end or checked the website, you would have heard my note that it was a joke. Sorry for any confusion.

I have quite a few computers and all of them have the names of Greek goddesses. To the extent that I'd given it any thought at all, I would have thought that the interest in the roles of goddess images in mythology was quite non-sexist, but it recently occurred to me that giving inanimate objects female names might be deemed sexist. Yes the fact that I read mythology and take an interest in computer networking demonstrates that I only ever thank about women and sex. That makes a lot of sense.
These people have all married, or plan to wed, a number of strange objects and creatures such as a chandelier and pet dog. Marriage is one of the oldest and most sacred traditions known to man. It's a celebration of the union of two people who intend to love and spend the rest of their lives together.
