The Hookup Culture and Its Discontents

That theory is dead. This is because the only differences there can be between the sexes are those that distinguish them in the first place. All right, digression over. Until you become a BigLaw partner. Then your inherent worth as a human being is best reflected by your book of business. Casual sex for women is exactly that.

A Georgetown Student Responds To continue my discussion of the gender-blind housing situation: My first concern with the movement is that the National Student Gender-blind Campaign calls for gender-blind restrooms as well as dorm rooms. As a female, I am already uncomfortable scurrying across a co-ed dorm hallway in a towel after a shower. It is not fair to create a restroom environment where a small minority may feel more comfortable, but the large majority of students are now uncomfortable.

My second concern with mixed gender rooms is the obvious disregard for the importance of avoiding relationships that simulate marriage before marriage.

Time to stop hooking up. You know you want to. We bought fishnets, wore our tightest, sexiest clothes and sauntered out like we were the hottest girls alive. I remember that night fondly, even though my feminist sensibilities cringe a little now. For me, that costume was a form of sexual experimentation.

I chose to dress sexier than I ever had and to stretch the boundaries of what I considered acceptable. Yet, my little adventure almost two decades ago seems innocent compared with hookup culture — a lifestyle of unemotional, unattached sex — so prevalent on campuses today. Is hooking up a form of sexual experimentation? After all, hookups are all about throwing off the bonds of relationships and dating for carefree sex. But such hypersexuality can be just as oppressive as a mandate for abstinence.

Hookup sex is fast, uncaring, unthinking, perfunctory. It has a lot less to do with excitement or attraction than with checking a box on a list of tasks, like homework or laundry. Yet, it has become the defining aspect of social life on many campuses — so common, so obligatory, that it leaves little room for experimentation that bends the rules.

Freitas took a holistic stance on consent, sexual assault and the college hookup culture, differing from the staunch assertions and rigid definitions that often frame the national conversation about sexual assault. This does not mean that a hookup is sexual assault. It means that consent is often very murky in a hookup. However, you are not supposed to become vulnerable or emotionally invested to be sexually intimate.

She is the author of the forthcoming “The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused about Intimacy” (Basic Books). In any event, the addition of social media, according to Williams, is a factor in “the end of courtship.”.

Sign in or Sign up today! Although it’s been cleared of “hate” charges in recent hearings, it must still pass final administrative review. The SAC had two hearings for the case last week. At the second hearing, which lasted two hours from Thursday night until very early Friday morning, the SAC voted 8—4 to dismiss the charges. However, this is not the end of the battle for Love Saxa.

Culture , DC Roosh 1. They have decidedly average faces. Unfortunately things have changed drastically. Even the few girls that are out… a lot of them are unattractive. A few of the attractive girls I have smashed have also told me they thought the women here were mostly ugly. This creates a problem for single men. Not as much pressure to stay in shape.

How Young Women Pursue Sex, Delay Love, and Lose at Both , treated it as one in which women were clearly the losers, seduced by false promises of liberation and left vulnerable to exploitative casual sex, regret and heartache. Which is it, then? Are college girls confidently pursuing the happy hookup or unhappily submitting to male exploitation while pining for true love?

The answer, most likely, is that neither narrative is quite true. The sexual environment on many campuses certainly has its unsavory and damaging aspects—but the damage and discontent are by no means limited to women.

Author Donna Freitas, a self-described feminist, has written a thoughtful and richly-researched study of how the sexual culture on contemporary campuses shortchanges many college students. Freitas detects three basic characteristics to hookup culture: Until the last decade, hooking up was seen, at most, as one of several lifestyle choices, but not the dominant one. Drawing from anonymous surveys and follow-up interviews with a smaller group of surveyed students, Freitas concludes that while students seem to accept hookup culture, actually most are deeply troubled by it.

They long for more meaningful commitments, rather than simply casual sex. Lisa Mogilasnki is precisely the type of student about which Freitas writes. The Harvard sophomore recently penned an op-ed for USA Today expressing her discomfort with the alcohol-heavy hook-up culture, noting that it can pressure female students in particular into behaving in ways they otherwise would not. Its distinguishing feature is its lack of discretion, except on the dimensions of physical attractiveness and proximity.

Despite skeptical, and at times almost hilariously hostile, coverage in the local and national media, Anscombe enjoyed a considerable level of support from Princeton students, since they appeared to be about the only entity on campus challenging the assumptions of the hookup culture. Similar groups sprang up at other Ivy League schools. On this matter, Freitas argues that Anscombe reflects the more general perspective of influential abstinence theorists, such as Mark Regnerus, who also are well-known for their anti-gay activism.

But as recent examples show, this idea is extremely problematic.

Our programming is discussion based- we aim to meet participants where they are, and discuss the issues and nuances of interest to them. Students need to break down their own barriers and assumptions, and have a safe space to ask these questions, in order to fully support the movement. Well what about false reporting? And then someone inevitably adds: And, of cases not reported, but shared with the public, or within a friend group, fabrications are even lower.

There is no incentive to false report- survivors are victim blamed and slut shamed links , their stories are denied and invalidated. Survivors often feel re-victimized by the reporting process. The only benefits to reporting are justice, and holding perpetrators accountable.
