How is it that the only way for someone to become like a good heroic strong Man is to have sex with lots of Women but if a Woman has sex with lots of Men, she’s like tainted and impure and horrible. Patriarchy I don’t want to get too deeply into math but in order for Men to have sex with alot of Women, alot of Women need to have sex with Men… That’s it ! That’s the only way patriarchy ! So basically you’re saying that the only way for Men to achieve “Manliness” is for Women to fail at “Womanliness”.
