They’re taught to pester, to coerce, and sometimes, yes, even to force women to give them what they want.

Are you seriously suggesting that your father taught you to ignore “no” and thereby taught you to rape women?

Because…….that’s the only way you have of proving that statement, even at the micro level, is if that’s what YOU PERSONALLY were taught. Unless of course you can point to a survey that backs up that statement.

And if so, your father was an antisocial asshole.

(And just to be sure, I ran this one by my husband. He had a rather ….. extreme reaction to it. Let’s just say that he doesn’t think you to be an honest broker, and leave it at that.)

Women are taught that they’re not supposed to like sex, that they’re supposed to remain CHASTE, and that they’re supposed to resist men’s advances.

Well, I was never taught that I wasn’t supposed to like sex, so that’s another lie (you’re racking them up, now — going to have to get a scoreboard).

I WAS taught to remember that with sex comes emotional bonding, so if I wanted to avoid a lot of emotional pain and agony, to limit my sexual activity to relationships that had some existing tenure and for which there were long-term hopes.

And I believe that to be wise council, in that in my experience, about 80% of the “relationship angst” that my girlfriends went through when I was “that age” came from having sex with men that they didn’t know that well (or at all.)
