About that Maclean's Article

Which ProWomanProLife talks about.

Feminists have encouraged young women to "explore their sexuality" i.e. engage in sexual activities without worrying about relationships.

What do you suppose happens when women "explore their sexuality"?

When relationships are no longer important, when sex becomes a goal, not benefit, then the men who are sought out will treat it that way as well.

And if you want that kind of man, then you have to have something to offer.

You have to be a "man pleaser".

If you think that men are going to be "women pleasers", you are very naive.

Women are emotionally needy creatures, in spite of statements to the contrary. They have a stronger need to be liked.

So they will sell themselves cheap to be liked, and for the sex.

And then they will end up feeling empty. Because they think this is the way to get a man and be liked, but it's not.

Feminists are appalled at the idea that old fashion values might be the way to actually preserve female dignity: insist on marriage first. Make the guy offer everything he has to you. Take a good offer, so to speak.

Then have sex.

Then you can safely "explore your sexuality" all you want.

People think that this "save sex for marriage" thing is rooted in an aversion to sex.

I know this may come as a shock, but somehow I doubt that most social conservatives dislike sex. Even the women. No, it's true.

But perhaps social conservatives have more of a grasp of the meaning and consequences of sexual choices. You can't just impose your meaning and your will on sex and think that your person will react in consequence of your projections. You can't just sleep around and think everything's going to be okay. It doesn't work that way.

Our selves work on a rational order. There are predictable consequences to values and choices. Leftists seem to think that if you just believe differently, you can make the negatives consequences go away-- that there will be no emptiness in your soul, no unwanted pregnancy, no negative social ramifications. If you just think that sex before marriage is okay, it will be.

Life does not work that way. Reality has rules, and if you don't follow them, it will come back to bite you in the butt, whether you realize it or not.
