Predator/Prey Model

So, I came across this very interesting article recently: The Danger in Demonizing Male Sexuality.

Yes, girls are told that boys are predatory and somehow out of control. The corollary there is that boys are told they are predators, and out of control. Therefore, not a desirable thing, but a thing to defend against. From the get-go, we are teaching our kids to fear male sexuality, and to repress female sexuality.

-Alyssa Royse

Honestly, this article is brilliant and really reminded me of something often relegated to textbooks. The way we treat masculine sexuality, of course, is as damaging as the way we treat feminine sexuality, and while I had seen pieces of this argument scattered here and there before, I really must commend this article for pulling them all together in such a sensible hypothesis.
