Have a read at NYT's latest #MeToo article, and realize it isn't about consent anymore. In virtually all accounts cited in the article, the woman fully admits she gave explicit verbal consent prior and during the sex, which was never withdrawn.
Yet these women label their experience as a traumatizing sexual assault, and their partner as a sexual offender.
A summary of these 45 stories would be: woman and man meet, have consensual sex, woman catches negative feelings after the sex, retroactively considers herself raped, can't press charges since our regressive rape-culture laws fail to recognize her as the victim she is.
The goal of this movement is clearly to amend the situation, and allow women to pursue criminal charges despite having consented. The article is explicit that these women are all traumatized victims, and their partners are criminal assailants who got away.
There's no more pretense that men can do much about this. They're simply responsible for their female partner's emotions, period. For example, they should notice that the woman isn't into the sex. In fact, in one case it seems the man's only fault was that the sex was bad, so performing poor sex is also a criminal offense. If you're a man, of course.
Remember the old radical feminist propaganda that all sex is rape of the woman by the man? Well, I have news for you: it's no longer extremist or radical - it's become mainstream. It's at the very core of the #MeToo movement. Arguably the most influential paper in the country posts a front page story that includes a woman's report that "most, if not all" of her sexual encounters were non-consensual.
I wanted to separate out this part of the post, since it's important to recognize that us men are not in any way responsible for women's post-sex feelings. We are responsible for our own actions, which in the case of sex include backing off at our partner's request (contrary to the custom in most other countries outside of the rape-culture-west, where she'd just be literally raped and then stoned or burned to death if she tries to press charges.)
So on principle, the woman's post-sex feelings are her own business and responsibility. Nobody asks us how we feel. If a man tried to retroactively annul a consented marriage because he felt bad about it afterwards, he'd get laughed out of any court.
How or why women get these post-sex negative emotions is no concern of ours.
However, I do think it's curious that this article, that dives headlong into the subtlest minutia of women's feelings and thoughts, doesn't consider how in most cases the woman seems to catch these regrets soon after the sex is over. She suddenly "finds her voice", tells the man he assaulted her, kicks him out of her bedroom.
Note how the situation hasn't changed. The couple is still isolated, she is still naked and "vulnerable", etc. The only thing that changed was that the sex has been had.
How can the article, and all these female "reporters", ignore the obvious conclusion that this is just buyer's remorse?
The woman was horny, so she had the sex she wanted, gratified her lust, now she's stuck with the cost: being labeled a slut for quickly yielding to her desires with a man who isn't her socially acceptable partner, boyfriend or husband.
This happened in virtually all cases, yet the woman wonders why she only found "her voice" or "power to resist" after the sex is over, "too late". Bitch, you were horny, you wanted to fuck, so you had your sex, then retroactively disavowed consent because it's convenient.
In other cases, it's obvious the woman regrets the sex because the man treated it as was it was - a quick first-meet hookup - rather than provided her with the "happily-ever-after" package she clearly deserves.
Betas and other unattractive men, take special note: you are a high risk group for this happening. In most accounts, the man was displaying beta qualities during or after the sexual encounter. Which makes sense: women who had sex with a beta should feel bad, biologically speaking, especially when no commitment was granted in exchange. They got possibly impregnated with bad genes, without the compensation of material support or commitment - the worst possible deal for her, evolutionary speaking.
It's no wonder their emotional system spins into a negative cycle strong enough to be remembered as a trauma: they must learn, they must remember, never to do this again. Their genes' survival depends on learning this lesson.
It's no coincidence that many of these accounts involve a woman's first sexual encounter. She did not know, did not expect, this harsh lesson. But she must learn.
So let this be a warning to you: if you want to participate in the hookup culture - the only mating culture we presently have, really - you must not be beta.
However, while betas are at the highest risk from women's post-sex regret, they're not the only ones by any means.
At this point, #MeToo's overarching objective is to grant women absolute power over men, by instituting the legal authority for women to completely destroy the social and material status of any adult man they choose. If you are a man, and you had a sexual encounter with a woman, you must keep her happy - by her own definition - in perpetuity. Or else.
