Anonymous asked: lol, yea ok. so you're telling me that if you had a daughter and she became basically the worlds bicycle, you would high five her and be like "here's a condom, go out there and do yo thang". no one wants to be seen as basically a sex object. I've seen so many women get mad when guys only text or call them for sex because that's what their known for then they get mad at me when the same guy texts me to have an actual conversation.
If I had a daughter, I’d teach her the risks and benefits involved in sex and let her make up her own damn mind, because she’s her own person with her own god damn free will, asshole.
She’d definitely be taught about contraception, and she’d be aware that it is not guaranteed protection, but if, after having all the information, she decides that she’s willing to take those risks with another consenting party, then that’s her own choice. She would never be taught that sex is bad, though. As you know, nothing works better at keeping teenagers from doing something than their parents insisting they shouldn’t. Honestly, I’m not going to teach her that abstinence is the only way. She’s going to know that sex is fun, she’s going to know that it’s risky, and she’s going to know the best ways to minimize those risks.
If my hypothetical daughter were legally competent to provide consent, then she would officially be too old for me to tell her she should not do so. At that point, the choice belongs to her. It’s not my job to keep her abstinent.
It would, however, be my job to make sure she gets through life as safely and happily as possible. It’s safe to assume that, at some point in her life, my daughters might have sex, and when that happens, they’re going to know that it’s nothing to be ashamed of, and they’re going to know how to minimize the risks. Putting a taboo on sex and refusing to teach about methods of contraception other than abstinence is a really big contributing reason we keep seeing teenage pregnancies.
And yeah, if my daughter was proud of herself for practicing safe sex with consenting partners, I would totally give her a high five, and I wouldn’t need to give her condoms because she’d have already learned how to get them for herself, which would be another thing that would make me proud.
Also, I think the problem with the guys you mentioned who text people only for sex is that you know a lot of douchebag men. Maybe it’s the fault of the guys that they objectify women, not the fault of the women who are being objectified. It sounds to me like those guys were having at least as much sex as those ladies, but don’t seem to be getting judged nearly as much.
(Hint: You should not judge anyone, regardless of gender or any other factor, on their consensual sexual choices if it does not concern you. What two consenting parties do behind closed doors is their own damn business.)
Also, using the phrase “world’s bicycle” to describe somebody who has a lot of sex is saying that women who enjoy sex are equivalent to objects. You are the one objectifying women. You are the one viewing women as sex objects. The blame for sexually active women being viewed as sex objects does not fall on sexually active women, it falls on you and people like you who view them as objects.
