    This is exactly what has been plaguing my mind for the longest time. Britain makes a big deal of its “ladette” culture, although the focus is more on the binge drinking than on the sex. However, I also live in a student busy city and see it all the time – couples hooking up on the dance floor and heading home together, blind drunk. I’ve had flatmates who do it on a regular basis.

    It’s nothing to do with the sex itself. I’ve never been puritanical about it and ultimately, someone else’s sex life, how often they have it and who with is absolutely nothing to do with me. But going home with or taking home a complete stranger (while drunk or high, or both) is not only stupid, it’s downright DANGEROUS. Aside from pregnancy and STDs, you’re leaving yourself open to be raped, beaten, stolen from or even killed if you don’t know who you’re leaving yourself alone with – and especially if your judgement is impaired. This is not to say that I think any of these things are deserved, or punishment for sleeping with strangers. Oh HELL no. But god, girls should at least accept the fact that these things DO happen, and exercise some sense in keeping themselves SAFE.

    Amen to that. Though from what I recall hearing, Dr. Laura was in a big tiff awhile back because there were naked pictures of her on the internet…

    So apparently she thinks it’s okay if you don’t get caught? Feh. I’ll take honest and gutsy over demure and “feminine” anyday. If that means people assume I’m the wrong gender, that’s their dysfunction and not mine.

    Once again, massive applause for both this post and the others you’ve created.

    Every time I read articles posted to this site, it’s like déjà vu all over again. A must read for women and men alike.

    You know how a pinball machine will get such a high score that it’ll go back to zero? Sometimes feminism is the same way. We go from people telling us that we should stay in the home, be subservient to our husbands, and raise children to people telling us that we should work out of the home and that housewives/SAHMs are lazy, hedonistic gold-diggers who insult feminism. Both attitudes are misogynistic due to the fact that they are telling women what they “should” do. I agree, feminism is about CHOICE.

    I’ve just came upon this article
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/femail/article.html?in_article_id=491929&in_page_id=1879&in_page_id=1879
    Funny how the author wasn’t interested in why women in her examples lost their sexual desire – only thing that matters, it seems, is that sex is, yet again, a woman’s duty no relationship for (selfish and bad)her.
