The Maclean’s cover story this week is about…the usual. A discussion of how and why some teenage girls are comfortable being skanky, even proud of it. And why their feminist mothers are baffled and confused.
Certainly, it was never a critical goal of feminism to teach girls to be bubble-brained sex objects. I get that. But it seems logical that in forcing all of us to consider sexuality as the main driver of who we are (and in part, that’s what “feminism” does) then a natural response is to let sexuality drive who you are. (Modern feminism included teaching girls they have sex drives, sex lives and sexual desires that are exactly the same as a man’s.) So really, is it so surprising our world is very sexual today?
My two cents. (As of my posting, the piece is not on the Maclean’s website.)
