Last time, we talked about some of the double standards that are involved in applying the age-old marriage mandate to men while maintaining the standards of women’s modern sexual revolution.
Our society, which now labels any hint of female accountability in sexual relationships “slut shaming” has no problem demanding that men be accountable for both sexes. There’s a stark, outdated (if ever functional) double standard on what each sex is considered responsible for and what each sex is seen as entitled to expect in a relationship.
We discussed the dueling narratives on sexual freedom that the feminist sexual revolution has dumped on women, who are now expected to view themselves as free agents while still trying to regulate men’s sexuality.
We looked at the assertion that men would be unaccountable cads if they don’t have wives to give their lives direction. Such a belief would be deemed horribly sexist if applied in the opposite direction, even though such dedication in the context of a functional relationship one is NOT pressured into can be beneficial to the character and stability of both sexes. We ended the broadcast in the midst of discussing the concept of how marriage and family can lead to maturity. We began to look at differences between the sexes in how this manifests.
We looked at why authorities have incentive to promote marriage and how government interference has removed incentives to marry. This week the discussion continues on cat cast 18.1: The Marriage Mandate, continued.
