Power Balance

A reader sends me a link to this article discussing sex and consent in the modern era. The author is making the case that the sexual revolution has been a failure for women and, in their own words, made them less safe. It’s an interesting hypothesis, but undermined considerably by this statement:

Most importantly, we have learned that men almost always hold power in sexual situations with women and the subsequent narratives about those situations.

Anyone who thinks women don’t hold power in sexual situations probably shouldn’t be writing on the subject.

  1. “and the subsequent narratives about those situations”

    Time was when people didn’t talk about having sex. Now they won’t shut up about it.

  2. Aristophanes’ Lysistrata was written 2400 years ago.
    And ancient Greeks where as misogynist as anyone.
