The New Puritanism

Feminist prudery can be explained in fairly simply terms–provided one is honest about what sex entails.

Sex is always “degrading” to women because for the woman, it is always an act of submission to the man and the enjoyment of that submission. There is no other way to interpret a woman opening herself to a man. On a primal level, it is a woman’s surrender to invasion , to conquest–but also a welcoming, an embrace of the conqueror. Sex is never a coupling of equals. Indeed, the very notion of equality is fatally anti-erotic.

Feminists (hysterics) cannot yield, cannot surrender, either to men or to their own desire, and, therefore, cannot enjoy sex except by inventing fictions that cover up what is involved. Fundamentally, a feminist is a woman who cannot tolerate being a woman.

Perhaps modernity has something to do with this misgendering–which appears to affect both sexes. Perhaps feminists are women unsexed by the paucity of real men and the overall destruction of patriarchal authority. Perhaps capitalism and modern industry unsexed the modern woman by conscripting her into the workforce and making of her a masculinized competitor with men.

What is certain is that sexual equality guarantees the eventual extinction of every society that adopts it as a goal.
