“You’re free to screw around, and so am I”
Some really clever men are using “gender equality” as a means for just being players. Countless female friends of mine have now had guys they’d been dating for a few months sleep with other women, and say, “You’re free to do the same! I encourage you to. Women can sleep around, too!” Wow. How gracious of them. As sex-positive as that is of them, it assumes that every woman wants to be in an open thing, or doesn’t want monogamy. That should always be a conversation. Communication is key. What’s really happening here is not a man who is feminist: it’s a man who wanted to screw around, didn’t want to have an open conversation about it, and used feminism as an excuse when he was caught.
