A Setback for Women

Rights for patriarchal cisgender, heterosexual men to express their sexuality — really the manifestation of their power over women — continue to broaden.

This is reinforced when rapists are given a slap on the wrist in court or when they don’t even make it to court. When young girls are blamed for sexual assault and the pedophilia of adult men is ignored. When erectile dysfunction pills are viewed as more necessary than birth control. When breast-feeding is stigmatized but breasts are fine when selling men products. When you turn on the TV and realize that coercive and physically violent representations of sex with woman are becoming increasingly prevalent. When sick forms of sexual oppression and abuse are called “kinks” as a euphemism to make them palatable to the public.
It seems as if the cis, hetero male’s right to have sex has long superseded a woman’s right to sexual and emotional health."
