are feminists asexual?

Are feminists asexual? Well, under the assumption that only women identify themselves as feminists. Cause men could never be asexual. Men are sexual animals....and that sort of behavior is completely appropriate. right? A feminist, that is a former straight women that has a bitter and intense resentment towards the male race. I mean feminists are the ones that are challenging the society's definition of what it means to be a women. They are the ones that have fully embraced what it means to them personally to be a women, breaking free from how this culture defines who they are supposed to be, what they are supposed to look like, and how they are supposed to feel. (source)

"In a recent survey of more than 4,000 college students across the country, a sociology professor at Stanford University found that women in college orgasm less than half as often as college males during hook-ups." (source)

"There is a social focus of sexual activity on male pleasure. In almost half of oral sex reports, only men received it, and women were the sole receivers 16 percent of the time. Minnie-Bruce Pratt, a women's studies professor, said this inequity is due to the double standard that teaches women to resist expressing their sexuality and for men to enjoy it. "I think that women not being able to ask for what they want in sex, that is, show they have desire, comes from a very embedded notion in this culture that if you're a woman and you like sex, there's something dirty and wrong with you," she said. (Keep in mind this is a bigger societal issue with our culture sending a message to young women that they should not sexually express themselves. This is not about a man and women in a bedroom along, and the men telling the women he'll do anything to please her.) Because of this societal pressure, women may be less likely to explore themselves sexually." (source)

Now back to the original question, are feminists' asexual? Well using common sense and logical rationale, the answer is no. Our society pressures young women to be sexually pure. They are not allowed to have sexual desire and drive with out being placed in a box of negative labels like slut and easy. As I mentioned before, feminists are actively fighting against the bigger societal oppressors that keep the women of this country from fully embracing themselves as a woman. If anything. feminists are often fully aware of the importance of embracing their sexual freedom.

As a woman you DESERVE to COME just as much, if not more, than the man you're sleeping. You won't regret it, trust me.

I don't know peaceofmind, can those statistics really be linked to inequality?

did you listen to the message at all? Or did you just pay attention to the beat boxer?

well, she started going way to in depth with that stuff, maybe they are blowing this stuff all out of proportion anyways.

Out of proportion!? That's exactly why us women are not treated as equals in the men's world!

you should probably do a post on the whole thing about men thinking about sex every 7 seconds (which is patently untrue): http://www.shoutwire.com/viewstory/159981/5_Urban_Myths_Exposed
