The Myth of ‘Pro-Sex Feminism’ and the Useless Idiocy of Jessica Valenti

Back in the late Sixties, some distaff radical declared, “Feminism is the theory. Lesbianism is the practice,” which is at least teleologically coherent. If the coven of gynocentric inverts wishes to advocate misandry as a universalistic ideology, such practical feminism is a logical conclusion. To do otherwise, a woman would be betraying The Sisterhood by quite literally sleeping with the enemy, voluntarily submitting to the most direct form of patriarchal oppression.

Nevertheless, in our age of androgynous radicalism, certain nominally heterosexual women desire to march under the feminist banner, but find they are permitted to do do so only by volunteering as subversive agents of influence within the enemy camp. Exempli gratia, Jessica Valenti:

There is a moral panic in America over young women’s sexuality—and it’s entirely misplaced. Girls “going wild” aren’t damaging a generation of women, the myth of sexual purity is. . . . It’s time to teach our daughters that their ability to be good people depends on their being good people, not on whether or not they’re sexually active.

Thus, Valenti can be said to postulate a corollary to the original syllogism: “Feminism is the theory. Whorism is the practice.”
