I actually right-swiped on a guy in order to tell him how misogynistic his profile was.

So is it any wonder that women who have sex with men are messaging and tweeting me daily talking about how 2017 has shut down their sex drives?

If his field of vision has been boxed in by “beauty”–a box continually shrinking–he simply will not see her, his real love, standing right before him.” Yes, words like “sensuality”, “beauty”, and “love” make me cringe too.

The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf, published in 1990, details how the patriarchy has constructed ‘the ideal woman’ and disseminates this image to women and men alike in order to control the former through both self-imposed behaviour and gender discrimination.

But that has meant I’ve had to compartmentalise my temporarily generalised contempt for men so as to not go on some feminist rant on every first date I go on, which also means one person in particular has been bearing the brunt of it.“It’s cliché, but your father is really the framework by which you have measured your romantic partners,” Colin said.

Since I couldn’t yell at every man, I started arguing with my father.Which means I’m left with self-proclaimed feminist men, which, I’m beginning to realise, might be just as bad as everything else. We can’t get the wearer of perfect pantsuits elected to the Presidency of the United States. Or at least, we can’t expect the men we date to be as woke about feminism as we are, and we can’t expect the men we date to be free from the internalised misogyny which governs us all.So fourth wave feminism is well underway and women still can’t have everything we want. We can’t enjoy our celebrity crushes anymore because of sexual assault accusations. Let me be clear: I am not excusing the behaviour of misogynists, nor am I excusing the behaviour of self-proclaimed feminists who are actually misogynists (which is arguably worse).I stopped having sex with people I was dating, focusing only on self-loving.
