The so-called sexual liberation of women is indeed screwing women, and not in a good way.
While we’re on the subject of feminism… here’s another essay, by another “woman on the right,” Amanda Prestigiacomo, who asserts,
“Feminists claim to promote the advancement of women and gender equality, largely via the promotion of so-called sexual liberation, but their movement is leaving a wake of unhappy, unmarried, and childless women in its path, a real problem feminists seemingly refuse to entirely address.”
She goes on to ask,
“Why would a man rush to settle down and marry someone if he can not only have sex with ‘liberated’ women without a ring, but even cohabitate with them, too? Moreover, the less chaste a woman is, the less preferable she will likely be to a man. Not to mention a woman’s increasing age and creeping near infertility as another massively undesirable trait.”
I am reminded of the old saying, blunt but to the point, which I heard from my mother and many other women of her generation (the “Greatest Generation,” that survived the Great Depression and World War Two) and earlier: “why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free?”
There are, of course, many other reasons to seek a close, committed, intimate, marital relationship besides sex! But here again, the so-called “sexual revolution” has resulted in a dramatic elevation of sexual pleasure above the older and co-essential values of child-rearing and mutual support that bonded men and women in a life-long marital union.
Add to that the neophilia and “trading up” mentality that permeates our contemporary culture, and you have a social milieu that radically destabilizes, and devalues, the traditional marriage relationship. Is it any wonder that women and men alike, though more “liberated” than ever, are also more unfulfilled?
