Feminism Killed Courtship on Campus

Thanks to Feminism, co-eds today do not endure the daily humiliation of courtship. They don’t worry about young men offering flowers or asking them to dinner or a movie.

The days of dating when young men sought them as friends, and possibly future wives and mothers are gone.

Today, thanks to the humanizing influence of Feminism, young women immediately give their bodies to complete strangers after anesthetizing themselves with alcohol. They engage in degrading sex acts without dread of old-fashioned repressive “patriarchal” morality.

This is the picture of college sexual mores in an article “Sex and Scandal at Duke [University]” by Janet Reitman in the current issue of “Rolling Stone” magazine. It typifies the scene at most universities:

“Whatever sex goes on, the girls say, is done in the context of the ”hook up,” which describes anything from making out to full-on intercourse. Much to the disappointment of many students, female and male, there’s no real dating scene at Duke — true for a lot of colleges.

”I’ve never been asked out on a date in my entire life — not once,” says one stunning brunette. Nor has a guy ever bought her a drink. ”I think that if anybody ever did that, I would ask him if he were on drugs,” she says.

Rather, there’s the casual one-night stand, usually bolstered by heavy drinking and followed the next morning by — well, nothing, usually. ”You’ll hook up with a guy, and you know that nothing will come out of it,” says Anna. The best thing you can hope for, she says, ”is that you’ll get to hook up with him again.” Some girls they know have managed to score a regular hook up — meaning consistent sex – but others play the field, bouncing from one guy to the next.”

The phrase “whatever sex goes on” is an understatement.

“Traditional intercourse is common, and oral sex nearly ubiquitous, regarded as a form of elaborate kissing that doesn’t really mean very much. ”Everybody gives blow jobs now,” says Naomi. ”Before,” she adds — meaning a pre-Monica/pre-Britney ”before” — ”it used to be you’d have sex and then give one.” But now, girls give them freely — on their own initiative, she says. (They also tend to get as much as they give, at least according to Duke men.)”

If this article is any indication, Feminism has done nothing for young women’s self esteem. Even though these girls get A’s and are beautiful, they vie to give their body to high status males, (athletes and fraternity men.) The reason? Other women are so sexually available; this is the only way they can get status and attention.

”I found myself falling into this thing,” says Allison. ”It made me very uncomfortable and unhappy, because it’s not a way to live. But if I didn’t do these things and he broke up with me for some reason, two days from now he’d have somebody else. That’s just how it works…If my mother knew; she would smack me across the face. I was not brought up in that kind of environment.”

In the past, the requirement of courtship and love for sex actually empowered women. Marriage was like a trade union. Now all young women are like scabs. They must perform for nothing and even less.

Young men treat them with contempt as illustrated by one male Duke blogger. (Please excuse the language.)

“These delightful young ladies deal with their massive insecurity by getting fucked by frat boys. Lucky for us guys, frat boys treat sorority girls like shit. As soon as Sally Pi Phi thinks she has secured Johnny Soccer Player, Johnny is off boning Chrissy Tri Delta . . .. All of this leads to unhappy, insecure girls all fighting to get rammed by someone of status.”

This is the fruit of “equality.” Young women express their independence by being as aggressive and promiscuous as males. ”Sometimes, girls will be like, ‘I’m just horny and I want to have sex,’ ” one says….”It’s our decision if we’re going to allow ourselves to be subjected to negative treatment. It’s all framed by the way [other] girls behave.”

Feminism depicts traditional women as ” chattel” oppressed by their husbands. But by undermining the morality (fidelity, chastity) inherent in family roles, Feminism has robbed many women of their natural identity (wife, mother) and degraded them more than ever.

In the Heterosexual Contract (i.e. love-marriage) women surrender power (symbolized by sex) in exchange for male love, which a man must first demonstrate through patient courtship. Take away that contract, and women get less than nothing in return for their power.

Needless to say, young women who prostitute themselves for “status” are less likely to have successful marriages. Emotionally, sexual intercourse is an act of possession. How often can a woman be possessed before it becomes meaningless?

This trend is part of a gradual process of eliminating marriage and family by imposing the male homosexual model on society. Studies indicate that less than 10% of male gays form permanent relationships, mostly childless, and that the vast majority are promiscuous with 43% of them having more than 500 sex partners in their lifetime.

Using Feminism as a lever, elite social engineers are foisting this model on society as a whole. Aldous Huxley warned us about it in “Brave New World” (1932) where promiscuity was encouraged, marriage and family proscribed and children born in state-sponsored hatcheries. This is where sexual behavior at elite universities like Duke is leading.

It makes perfect sense that Feminism would kill a heterosexual institution like courtship. Behind its facade of “women’s rights,” post-war Feminism is lesbian in character. It teaches that heterosexual roles (wife, mother) are “socially constructed” and “oppressive” to women. It encourages women to abandon them and imitate men instead. It was instigated by the Rockefeller Foundation which continues to finance it today as part of their plutocratic occult New World Order. All those idealistic feminists who wanted to “change the world” are getting their wish.


Note: Before feminists protest the “womyn’s movement” is about “equality in the workplace” and “choice” let me say, don’t be so naive, that was a ruse! Educate yourselves about the origins and hidden agenda of Feminism before it is too late.
