Feminism and Sex

I was entirely prepared to believe this idea, that feminists are in fact better in bed. Then I started reading:

Feminists are happier in love and better in bed. I\’m extrapolating a wee bit optimistically, but it\’s cheering to come across a study about the f-word that doesn\’t conclude 99% of respondents think the women\’s movement was about unshaved armpits. What the Rutgers researchers actually found was that, in a survey of college students and older adults, all in heterosexual relationships, men paired with feminist partners reported greater relationship stability and sexual satisfaction.

OK.

This will doubtless do little to dispel the popular myth that the majority of feminists are man-hating lesbians

No you silly cow. Studying people, all of whom are in heterosexual relationships, tells you entirely bugger all about anyone who is lesbian, man-hating or not.

I stopped reading at that point.

  1. men paired with feminist partners reported greater relationship stability and sexual satisfaction.

    Perhaps they didn’t dare complain 😉

  2. I don’t understand you here, Tim. She’s saying:
    1) there is a stereotype that all feminists are man-hating dykes
    2) men in relationships with feminists are happier than men in relationships with doormats
    3) therefore, the stereotype that feminists are man-hating dykes is shown false

    She doesn’t prove that those-feminists-who-are-lesbian don’t hate men, but that isn’t required to validate her argument.
