How's that women-empowering sexual revolution thing working out for you?

From the U.K. Tele­graph:

A friend’s daugh­ter recently started at a highly regarded board­ing school. When her mother asked how she was enjoy­ing the mixed-​sex envi­ron­ment, the girl said qui­etly: “You have to give the boys oral sex or they get cross.” Reel­ing with shock, the mum protested that her dar­ling daugh­ter did not have to do any­thing of the sort. “Oh yes you do,” replied the girl. “And you have to shave down there or the boys don’t like it.”

That’s just a sam­ple. There’s also:

Only last week, we heard the awful story of Chevonea Kendall-​Bryan, who fell to her death after plead­ing with a boy on the pave­ment below to erase the record­ing of her per­form­ing a sex act on him. “How much can I han­dle? HON­ESTLY. I beg you, delete that,” texted Chevonea. She was 13.

The author of this arti­cle, Alli­son Pear­son, talks a lot about the porn cul­ture and the ready access to a “vir­tual world” (online, tex­ting, etc.). But she misses the point. We could have thrown mobile phones at women in the 1860s, but no man would have dared to ask a lady to per­form fel­la­tio on him, because her dad would shoot him. As in, dual to the death, all mem­bers of her fam­ily lined up to protest the treat­ment of their sis­ter. (I will note that some very back­wards coun­tries shoot the wronged woman, not the offend­ing man.)

This is a sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion issue. Once we started say­ing that promis­cu­ity is empow­er­ing, that sex­ual exper­i­men­ta­tion is fun for women, that preg­nancy is the only obsta­cle a woman faces in inti­mate acts, we gave young men license to treat young women like unpaid pros­ti­tutes. (Actu­ally, worse — a man might under­stand if a pros­ti­tute said that she was off-​duty for the night.)

The lead­ers of the sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion — courted by men brought up with dif­fer­ent stan­dards than the ones espoused by the likes of Steinem — had it good. But their legacy to my gen­er­a­tion, and the gen­er­a­tion behind me, is men brought up to believe that only a repressed woman does not put out, that sex is their right, and that there is noth­ing emo­tional that hap­pens to a woman when she per­forms inti­mate (and some­times quite vul­gar and undig­ni­fied) sex acts on men who are not her hus­band. The log­i­cal result, no mat­ter what the inten­tions of these Baby Boomer women were, is that men feel it is their nat­ural right to sex­u­ally exploit all women.

Nice going, “fem­i­nists”. Nice going.

From the U.K. Telegraph:

A friend’s daughter recently started at a highly regarded boarding school. When her mother asked how she was enjoying the mixed-sex environment, the girl said quietly: “You have to give the boys oral sex or they get cross.” Reeling with shock, the mum protested that her darling daughter did not have to do anything of the sort. “Oh yes you do,” replied the girl. “And you have to shave down there or the boys don’t like it.”

That’s just a sample.  There’s also:

Only last week, we heard the awful story of Chevonea Kendall-Bryan, who fell to her death after pleading with a boy on the pavement below to erase the recording of her performing a sex act on him. “How much can I handle? HONESTLY. I beg you, delete that,” texted Chevonea. She was 13.

The author of this article, Allison Pearson, talks a lot about the porn culture and the ready access to a “virtual world” (online, texting, etc.). But she misses the point.   We could have thrown mobile phones at women in the 1860s, but no man would have dared to ask a lady to perform fellatio on him, because her dad would shoot him.  As in, dual to the death, all members of her family lined up to protest the treatment of their sister.  (I will note that some very backwards countries shoot the wronged woman, not the offending man.)

This is a sexual revolution issue.  Once we started saying that promiscuity is empowering, that sexual experimentation is fun for women, that pregnancy is the only obstacle a woman faces in intimate acts, we gave young men license to treat young women like unpaid prostitutes.  (Actually, worse – a man might understand if a prostitute said that she was off-duty for the night.)

The leaders of the sexual revolution – courted by men brought up with different standards than the ones espoused by the likes of Steinem – had it good.  But their legacy to my generation, and the generation behind me, is men brought up to believe that only a repressed woman does not put out, that sex is their right, and that there is nothing emotional that happens to a woman when she performs intimate (and sometimes quite vulgar and undignified) sex acts on men who are not her husband.  The logical result, no matter what the intentions of these Baby Boomer women were, is that men feel it is their natural right to sexually exploit all women.

Nice going, “feminists”.  Nice going.
