Love Jennifer Roback Morse. If I could go to sunny San Diego for February 15, I most certainly would. She is having a day-long conference for those who have been victimized by the sexual revolution. Here’s an interview with her, where most every answer is worth reading. She explains the idea that where we are encouraged to believe a fantasy (ie. that sex can be consequence free) that moves us in the direction of totalitarian thought. Among other interesting points.
Why is the sexual revolution so appealing to people?
The sexual urge is obviously very powerful, and the idea you can have sex without consequences is a very appealing fantasy. But that’s what it is: a fantasy. Even if you successfully avoid pregnancy, you’ve got emotional consequences. The sexual revolution promises that if you just take the baby out of the equation, you can have all the benefits of sex without any of the costs.
