This just begins to scratch the surface of the way sex as a coercion/marketing tool pervades civilization. The only serious attempts to change it have ended up disastrous and paternalistic. I hope that women find a way to cooperate and fight this, but it’s a difficult path ahead. The first thing we do to a girl is dress her up in pink and send her to school, where culture indoctrinates her to use her ‘attributes’ to compete against her friends for (mostly male) attention. The industries built around this competition are truly afraid of a society based on thoughtful, cooperative intention rather than exploitation of ancient instincts and chemistry.
