Attention Women: Casual Sex Will Leave You “Worthless”
Posted by Clem Bastow on July 4, 2008
From time to time the post-fem conservatives try to whip up a scare campaign designed to make women think twice about living their lives like, if you will, Samantha Jones from Sex & The City (and even Sam ended up needing a full-time, monogamous partner). The latest to indulge in this sorry line of “journalism” is – no surprises! – Britain’s Daily Mail.
The piece, by Helen Weathers and subtly titled “Casual sex left me feeling worthless: How a one-night stand left one woman emotionally destroyed”, fires so many salvos it’s hard to know which ones to highlight! Let’s start with this one:
Only when Aisling woke up, she didn’t feel liberated. As her conquest departed with barely a backward glance, she felt used and cheated, even though she’d been under no illusion that it might lead to anything more.
That’s right, girls, sexual freedom and emancipation from traditional and hurtful gender roles is bad news! You are all just prostitutes in the eyes of these careless studs! But that’s the least of it:
Men can separate their feelings and just have sex, whereas women connect on a much deeper level.
The sexist gender stereotypes that just won’t quit! Chicks! They just want to talk after sex! Please, ma’am, may I have some more? Brace yourself, the corker is coming up…
When last night’s ‘Brad Pitt’ looks more like Mr Bean, a woman’s self-respect plummets. As for actually marrying the ‘Brad Pitts’ of this world, a promiscuous woman jeopardises her chances of attracting a high-status long-term partner by giving away her assets too cheaply.
That’s right, you’re just tarnishing yourselves, girls – after all, a woman’s body is a precious jewel that should be treasured and revealed in a velvet box on your wedding night, or something. But hold on, I think Ms Weathers wants to leave us with a salient final line:
Women may indeed be biologically programmed to go in search of their very own ‘Brad Pitt’ – and may even make a quick conquest.
They just shouldn’t be surprised when he doesn’t call the next day.
Yep, suck it up, sluts – you’re doomed to waiting by the phone and wondering where it all went wrong. If only you’d waited until the third date!
