The Surprising Way The Sexual Revolution Hurts Women

How The New Economics of Sex and Marriage Disadvantages Women

All revolutions have unexpected consequences.

And the ‘free love’ sexual revolution that began in the 1960’s is no exception. Yes, there are the obvious consequences: STI’s, children born out of wedlock, a ‘pornified culture’ and so on. But there are also the unexpected – and surprising – consequences.

As it turns out, these unexpected consequences hurt women in particular. And economics – of all things! – shines the light on one such consequence:

 

 

From a Christian worldview perspective, taking sex outside of marriage will always have negative consequences. After all, sex and marriage was designed by God, for our good. And using such a gift against the Maker’s instructions will always have awful consequences.

  1. Hi Akos, what more to say: the video sums it up perfectly. I especially liked the part which talked about the patriarchy versus female sexual gate-keepers, that it was more about women giving away their keys than any supposed Patriarchy.

    The idea of the Patriarchy is little more than Don Quixote and his “tilting at windmills.” Set up a false enemy and attack it relentlessly.

    If anything there may be some justification in Christian ladies engaging with the Suffragette Movement, but certainly not 2nd or 3rd Wave Feminism, which aimed at fracturing familial relations and usurping men in the free market economy.

    Are there any surprises that the biggest losers in this game are women and children?

    The family structure does not tie women to men; it ties them to each other. In those roles and capacities, I would argue the mothers built the communities in which their children engaged, while men built the infrastructure.

    Now that no-one is building communities, and atomisation of self is prevalent, is it any wonder that rates of antisocial behaviour are endemic? The idea of a social or public moral standard has all but evaporated under the guise of moral relativism.
