Oppression

“If she is heterosexually active, a woman is open to censure and punishment for being loose, unprincipled or a whore. The “punish- ment” comes in the form of criticism, snide and embarrassing remarks, being treated as an easy lay by men, scorn from her more restrained female friends. She may have to lie to hide her behavior from her parents. She must juggle the risks of unwanted pregnancy and dangerous contraceptives. On the other hand, if she refrains from heterosexual activity, she is fairly constantly harassed by men who try to persuade her into it and pressure her to “relax” and “let her hair down”; she is threatened with labels like “frigid,” “uptight,” “man-hater,” “bitch” and “cocktease.” The same parents who would be disapproving of her sexual activity may be worried by her inactivity because it suggests she is not or will not be popular, or is not sexually normal.”

Though the previous quotation is long, it is extremely true. My belief is that any woman should do exactly how she pleases. If a girl want to have sex and it is based solely off of her own desire, she should have sex. If a girl wants to abstain from sex for any reason, she should abstain from sex. It is a fact of life that you will be judged no matter what you choose to do; therefore, each woman should gage her own sexuality and sexual preferences.
