The End of the Sexual Revolution



This is a very good article above and sums up well why the sexual revolution is officially over...

  1. It was over by the end of the Vietnam War. The Lefties have been trying to tell everybody it's still alive because it keeps women defenseless.

  2. I was a teenager in the late 1970s, long past the great awakening (sexual intercourse began in 1963, which was plenty of time for me), but as far away from Girl Power as World War I was from the Tet Offensive.

    I guess other people understand this sentence, but not me. I think I know what she meant, but the parenthetical in a literal sense provides a different take. Without the parenthetical, I think she meant the sexual revolution when women were being more sexually aggressive was well before her time. But the parenthetical taken literally suggest sexual intercourse for her began in 1963, while she was a teenager in the late 1970's, which I admit gave her plenty of time to develop a different view of sex at a very early age.

    Alas, we get to this part of her essay: I thought it would take a little longer for the hit squad of privileged young white women to open fire on brown-skinned men. I had assumed that on the basis of intersectionality and all that, they’d stay laser focused on college-educated white men for another few months.

    So her article is just that #MeToo jumped the shark because Aziz Ansari, because he has brown skin and that's how she judges people, is higher up the progressive ladder than a white college educated woman.

    I honestly didn't hear about this until clicking the link and reading the story. Why in my ear it is not a #MeToo, is because you don't get to say "I'm fine with getting my pussy licked", and then "how dare he ask me for intercourse afterwards". I thought maybe that's where the writer was headed, but nope. She started down that line, and then jumped to a different conclusion. Her concluding argument was mostly that Ansari was a good guy, because he was a Muslim man that was funny, and that his accuser is a white woman trying to take advantage of the guy.

    I'll agree on one point made by the accuser and acknowledged by the author. I think all men are the same. If you show us your boobs and vagina in an effort to get our attention, we will assume the attention you want is sexual in nature. It just seems now that what constitutes sex is open for interpretation, and on that, I blame Bill Clinton, and his affair with Lewinski 20 years ago.

    1. I did notice her comments on Aziz being Muslim and his skin color, but I took it as an observation about how far feminism and #MeToo has gone. We all know that there is a double standard and when it comes to accusations of sexual harassment, being a male Caucasian is not a position of privilege, but now it is all men who are at fault.
