I’m still not over Will Arnett and Amy Poehler breaking up.
"The thing is, we are raised to fear the sexuality of other women, and to judge it harshly. We are raised to see the sexual premium of female chastity as a collective thing, something another woman could “damage” by not taking it seriously enough. If a woman embraces her sexuality in a way that is different than we do, we are taught to ostracize her and shame her into believing it is wrong. These things are instilled in us so deeply that women who are otherwise intelligent, otherwise compassionate, and otherwise supportive of other woman can think that there is something wrong or inherently immoral about a woman who enjoys casual sex, without a trace of cognitive dissonance. The sexuality of a woman, for all intents and purposes, is never fully her own. We are expected, as a society, to keep tabs on it and make sure that it doesn’t get too out of control. And embracing these ideas through adulthood is all too easy, as they are reinforced almost everywhere we look."
