(The Atlantic)   Feminist progress now largely depends on the hookup culture, and it is women who are perpetuating the culture. For college girls, an overly serious suitor is like an accidental pregnancy; a danger that can get in the way of a promising future   (theatlantic.com) divider line 136

Too old for High School Teachers to abuse me. Too old for college hookup culture.

So there was a time where there wasn't a "college hookup culture"? And now the women are somehow victims of it? Guys in college...it sucks to be you.

There always was, I think the pool of applicants is just a lot larger now.

But yeah, even back in the 80's I had a woman I didn't know at a bar ask me "Can I have a taste of your meat?" because I was eating a steak at the bar after an exam. You better farking believe we hooked up. We didn't even exchange names, and this was during the initial AIDS scare era. Hell, we never left the bar because my roommate was the manager. We just waited for closing and "borrowed" the office while he cleaned up.

/ahhh, youth.

I slept with a ton of guys in college but it had nothing to do with feminism. It has to do with the fact that I like sex.

I never understood why a guy would rape a woman when he could just force her to have sex. Seriously, why put them through the trauma.

If feminist progress is predicated on women rejecting romance and real relationships, then it is an ethos that is useless and dangerous to its adherents.

One sorority girl, a junior with a beautiful tan, long dark hair, and a great figure, whom I'll call Tali, told me that freshman year she, like many of her peers, was high on her first taste of the hookup culture and didn't want a boyfriend. "It was empowering, to have that kind of control," she recalls. "Guys were texting and calling me all the time, and I was turning them down. I really enjoyed it! I had these options to hook up if I wanted them, and no one would judge me for it." But then, sometime during sophomore year, her feelings changed. She got tired of relationships that just faded away, "no end, no beginning." Like many of the other college women I talked with, Tali and her friends seemed much more sexually experienced and knowing than my friends at college. They were as blasé about blow jobs and anal sex as the one girl I remember from my junior year whom we all considered destined for a tragic early marriage or an asylum. But they were also more innocent. When I asked Tali what she really wanted, she didn't say anything about commitment or marriage or a return to a more chivalrous age. "Some guy to ask me out on a date to the frozen-yogurt place," she said. That's it. A $3 date.

Or, y'know, there's a portion of the population that like sex but see no need for relationships.

Who the fark has time to seriously date while taking classes and possibly also working? Relationships take time and organization that is not easily attained while in school.

It's the same deal as with the diets of college students. Sure, eating better might be preferable but they don't have the resources (time/money/living space) to make that realistic. But their bodies still crave food, and so they eat shiat.

Students don't have the resources for real relationships, but their minds and bodies still crave intimacy and sex. So the relationships they do have are of the fast food convenience variety.

The students aren't to blame for taking what they can get and doing their best with it, male or female.
 
2012-08-23 10:06:22 PM
Look I'm all for enjoyment of sex and all but there has to be a distinction being made where you can enjoy sex because it's sex and enjoying how you attain sex because it puts you on equal footing with men.

This is why double standards will continue to exist as to how many people a guy sleeps with in comparison with a girl's tally.

Or they're just waiting until they're financially independent and emotionally mature and having some fun on the side while working towards those two things rather than being on 16 and Pregnant or Teen Mom.

THAT is the heart of the issue. They enjoy the attention, the feeling of being better than the men because they know they are on the pedestal and call the shots. That's all this really comes down to. It's not even really about the sex, or relationships or lack of. College girls figured out that they way they can obtain the most attention and control is by acting like this.

Pretty much economic necessity.

You work for 70% of a man's wages, and take a job a man would like to have, the money he is not being paid will not go to support a family and a wife.

Also, a quickie here and there is all a woman wants these days, she is too wrapped up with herself to get emotional over anyone else.

Flames erupt in 3. . . . . 2. . . . . 1. . . . . .

This is true. Even my unattractive female friends juggle two or three boys at a time. It seems to me that it may be men who are the naturally monogamous ones.
 
2012-08-23 10:16:18 PM
What?

I mean, nothing wrong with hookups, been there, but frankly it gets old pretty fast when you start edging past 20 it tends to start getting old. Coincidentally, that's also the point where you stop caring about being empowered and start preferring to not be alone.

Cool story: Went to the college clinic to check out a burning sensation. When asked, proudly described my active sex life.

The doc said: "OK, you present a low risk for STD's. Probably just drinking too much coffee."

Who could have guessed that people in their late teens and early twenties wouldn't be interested in serious relationships? Absolutely no one. It has shocked us all.

What issue? Are they doing anything illegal? Is it demonstrably harmful to society? Or are they just enjoying the freedom to act like pigs, just like men?

That's the real win of feminism. Women are free to do what they want and behave how they want within the confines of the law. They are not required to be lesser or greater than men. They are not required to take the moral high road because of the past injustices done to their sex that should have somehow taught them to be the better person.

They are simply free to be people, and engage in all the disgusting and wonderful possibilities that entails.

The new show Girls is much better than this article, which seems like it could have been ripped from the pages of Penthouse or Playboy.

/Maybe I just like neurotic people. Mad About You was my favorite show as a young teen, after all.
