So how is that great sexual revolution working out for you? Have we reached the sun-drenched summit of the happy, hippy mountain yet? Are we all delirious with delight having shaken off the shackles of oppression? Sadly, if you look at both the US and the UK, not so much.
What the feminists of the sexual revolution have done is unleashed a tidal wave of sexual anarchy particularly against young girls.
Peggy Orenstein’s book Girls and Sex has been reviewed as ‘horrifying.’ In it, it documents a 18-year-old high-school senior who says she would never hang out with one of her guy friends alone because he would expect her to perform oral sex. “It’s not that they’d force themselves on you,…..It’s just that there would be pressure.” We are told this is a very common experience for young women today.
In The Mail on Sunday, Holly Bourne describes an epidemic of ‘rape’ for teenagers in the UK. She tells us “almost daily, there were messages from girls who had been raped, sexually assaulted, emotionally abused or plain old bullied into doing sexual acts they didn’t feel ready for – usually by someone they were in a relationship with.”
Having read it in full, I doubt any of these cases would be considered rape in a court of law. Instead they are symptoms of the poisonous relationship between young men and women fed a constant diet of highly sexualised culture in the West and given absolutely no moral guidance from either parents, schools or especially the feminists who caused this damage in the first place.
Holly tells us she writes for “The Mix .. a charity that provides information and support to under-25s through its website, on social media and over the phone.”
I decided to venture on to this great website The Mix, to see just what was going on. I wish I hadn’t. First, the language is crude – so I won’t repeat it here. It includes such gems as ‘is my penis normal’ and the family therapy section leading with ‘my mum is going out with someone younger than me.’ It was downhill from there.
One section caught my eye. “Myths about virginity’. It tells us, “Virginity is a dodgy concept. It comes from the patriarchal oppressive need to control women’s sexuality, i.e. it’s a load of rubbish. So, we’re here to dispel those damaging virginity myths…” When you start shaming the virgins, you know you are in trouble.
It also considers the phrase, “Your first time has to be special..” The reply: “Nope. You choose how, when, and who you do it with. If you want to wait and do it with a long-term partner? Cool. If you want to just fool around with a no-strings-attached friend? Cool. As long as you’re communicating your desires with your partner, it’s all good.”
Only it is not all good – is it? Otherwise you would not be moaning about all the ‘rapes’ out there, you nincompoop.
Relying on the feminists to turn back the tide on unwanted sexual aggression is a bit like relying on a burglar to return your stolen items. It is a fool’s errand: they are the ones that caused the problem in the first place and many have an interest in seeing it continue.
A lot of these feminists are flogging books telling us how terrible everything is only to offer utterly useless solutions at the end, leading no doubt to a second book offering yet further useless advice such as ‘if you want to fool around with no strings attached then that is cool.’
But all the young women you spoke to have just told you it is not cool – so what the hell is wrong with you? Why aren’t you listening?
What the stupid feminists did in unleashing this great sexual revolution was, as well as ‘liberating’ women (to be unhappy), they made assumptions we know are untrue and altered crucial cultural norms, most of which protected women.
First, they told everyone who would listen (especially the blokes) that the sex drive between the sexes was the same. We know this is bonkers and I am not going to offer you some peer reviewed academic article on this I shall just offer, human nature. Also, when Ashley Madison the adultery website was hacked, nearly all the users were male. The females were pretty much made up. So much for equality!
Secondly, and this is important, the feminists changed the default setting from one where sex took place after marriage, to sex – whenever you wanted. In others words, it became an entitlement. Combine this with the greater male sex drive and women were always going to lose out.
I know many, if perhaps most couples, may not have waited until marriage in the 1950s, but if a woman did want to wait she did not have justify herself – it was the norm so no excuse was needed.
Now, the opposite applies – if the female wants to wait (until after meeting for one date, it seems, obviously only the crazies wait for marriage) she has to justify herself. She has to explain why there is no entitlement, and that is not easy for a teenage girl.
The dopey feminists think they can get all this back in the box with their pre-coital consent contracts and endless lectures on consent. Good luck to them, I say. This is not going to work. A mere legal requirement is no match for social and cultural norms, which took generations to build to up and were then torn asunder so quickly by the feminists.
They are the ones who have created this quagmire of filth and it is going to take a lot more than a lecture on consent and Twitter hashtag to try to change it. For that – you need a conservative.
