[TRIGGER WARNING: SEXUAL CONTENT, SEXUAL ASSAULT, RAPE]

This has been out for awhile now and I just finally read it and yes, it is extremely worth your time and yes, it is required reading for men.

The female price of male pleasure

I'm just going to quote this one short paragraph, which is the crux of the issue, and I want you to read it carefully.

That's right: PubMed has almost five times as many clinical trials on male sexual pleasure as it has on female sexual pain. And why? Because we live in a culture that sees female pain as normal and male pleasure as a right.

Because we live in a culture that sees female pain as normal and male pleasure as a right.

It's often difficult to see how people don't understand why women like Grace don't "just leave" or whatever in a situation where they feel uncomfortable or threatened. I've spent so many years reading about and studying gender issues, sociology, and human psychology that I read Grace's account and understand immediately. If you really don't understand and aren't just willfully clinging to ignorance because it's easier, then I highly recommend reading this article and delving into some of the science it brings up.

If you don't have time, or it's too hard, I'll sum it up for you.

It's because our society is FUCKED UP, okay? Shit is not cool, shit is not the way it should be. Work on accepting that, and in the meantime keep your ignorant, asinine questions to yourself.

"Why didn't she just" SHUT UP.
