Anyone who has embarked on a first-time hookup with a man knows the following: it can be terrible, just OK, or great, but it’s highly unlikely you will get off. Is this a fixed truth of casual sex, or is there something we can do to change it?
Moore and other feminists are coveting something they can’t get. Their first problem is a lack of ownership. This is the tragedy of the slutty commons. Even worse, the kind of men Moore and others want to hook up with are the least likely to care about her satisfaction; their lack of caring is precisely what she finds so attractive.
Futility aside, Moore (like all feminists) puts her faith in the patriarchy to solve all of her problems:
Like everything that involves giving women pleasure or true equality—the wage gap, the domestic labor gap—we need men to pick up the slack.
If you take a step back, feminism is about nagging men to do what feminists want them to do. While it won’t work in this specific application, their faith in men’s ever enduring goodwill is generally speaking quite well placed. Feminism is the assertion that men are evil and naturally want to harm women, followed by pleas to men to solve all of women’s problems. Feminism has been so successful not because men by their nature want to harm women, but because appeals to men for assistance can be so reliably depended upon.
