The Sexual Revolution objectified Women and led to an Epidemic of Young Single Mothers and STDs

Posted by PITHOCRATES - February 17th, 2013

Week in Review

Women liberated themselves in the Sixties.  Gone were the days of finding a man to marry and settling down to raise a family.  The way it used to be in the Fifties.  In romantic comedies.  And in romance novels.  Where a woman meets the man of her dreams.  They get married.  And live happily ever after.  This is the hell the sexual revolution freed woman from in the Sixties.  And now they are free to enjoy their sexuality.  By giving it away to as many men as they please.  Which pleased a lot of men.  And more and more high school boys (see Victoria’s Secret’s Customers Keep Getting Younger by Ashley Lutz posted 2/16/2013 on Business Insider).

Ten years ago, Victoria’s Secret sold lingerie to women in their twenties.

Today, the lingerie retailer is luring in young girls by offering underwear that is cute instead of sexy, reports Sapna Maheshwari at Bloomberg News.

The highly-popular Pink line is technically marketed toward college girls ages 18 to 22.

“When somebody’s 15 or 16-years-old, what do they want to be?” Stuart Burgdoerfer, CFO of Victoria’s Secret, said at a conference last month. “They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that’s part of the magic of what we do at Pink.”

You know what cool girls do in college?  They party.  That means they drink, do drugs and have sex.  When these cool college girls go on spring break they party so much that some star in amateur porn.  For free.  There are so many cool girls letting loose on spring break that they’ve built a video franchise around them.  Girls Gone Wild.  This is not what 15 and 16 year girls should be aspiring to.  Instead of focusing so much on buying cute underwear they should be hitting the books.  Getting good grades in math and science.  So they can pursue whatever career they choose.  Using their brains.  Instead of just trying to be pretty.

The whole point of the women’s liberation movement was to get away from thinking about women as sexual objects.  Of course you wouldn’t know that based on the 2012 presidential campaign.  When all the feminists urged young women to vote Democrat lest they lose their birth control or access to abortion.  For apparently that was more important to women than any other issue.  Their ability to have as much casual sex as possible.  Which seems to benefit men more than women.  While women have more to lose (see Why youths aren’t getting tested for HIV by Sari Zeidler posted 2/16/2013 on CNN).

The 25-year-old mother of two is poised. Sitting in a boardroom at AID Atlanta, an HIV outreach facility in Atlanta where she volunteers, she exudes confidence.

But Traylor is HIV positive.

According to the CDC, 50,000 Americans are infected with HIV each year, and 25% of those are between the ages of 13 and 24.

Sixty percent of youth with HIV don’t know they have it, despite recommendations from the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

Traylor got her first HIV test as a teenager when someone living with the disease gave a presentation at her high school. She was about 16 and already a teen mother at the time. She knew she had been having unprotected sex and wanted to stay healthy for her young son.

At the time, Traylor was in what she believed was a monogamous relationship. During her annual doctor’s visit, she was disturbed to realize she had to ask specifically for an HIV test on top of a standard STD panel. She insisted on taking the test even though her doctor told her — as a heterosexual woman involved in a monogamous relationship — that she was low risk.

Later Taylor broke up with her boyfriend and began a new committed relationship. That was the year her life changed. Despite vigilance in testing, Traylor wasn’t prepared for what she found out at her doctor’s visit that year: She was HIV positive. Two weeks later she learned she was pregnant with her second child.

She thought she was in a monogamous relationship.  But thanks to birth control and abortion boys are like a kid in a candy store.  They may profess their love and say she is the only one.  But with all those young girls out there buying that cute underwear and no doubt eager to show it off (unlike their utilitarian granny panties that kids will make fun of any girl wearing them) how can a boy remain monogamous?  His body is surging with hormones.  And so many young girls want to be like the cool girls in college.  Who are very popular girls.  As they like having fun the way adults like having fun.  And you can’t stop these boys.  You can’t tell them to stop having sex.  Because boys will be boys.  That’s why they give away birth control in high school.  For there is just no way to stop the sex.

It’s rather ironic, really.  That women’s rights have come down to keeping birth control and abortion services abundant and accessible.  But who does that really benefit?  Girls who may end up with two babies before they’re 18?  Girls who come down with an STD or test positive for HIV?  Or girls who are both single mothers and HIV positive?  Girls who are not likely to complete high school and go on to college.  And on to a career that the women’s liberation movement opened up to them?  Or is it benefitting boys who are having multiple sex partners despite telling each girl that she’s the only one?  Boys who are leaving these girls to grow up as single mothers?  Or to grow up with HIV?  Or both?

One could call this the greatest con against women ever.  Men have made young women want to become sexual objects.  So men can enjoy having sex with a variety of women.  Without having to marry and settle down with one sex partner for the rest of their life.  Something most women want.  Monogamy.  Based on the success of romantic comedies.  And romance novels.  But today we’ve replaced living happily ever after with an active sex life.  Something that men love.  Who are clearly benefitting more from the sexual revolution than women are.  For they’re getting more of what they want.  And they don’t have biological clocks ticking away.
