{Peanut Gallery} Ramparts

To say a woman has “given it up” is to perpetuate the beliefs that 1) a woman’s sexuality is the most valuable thing she offers and that 2) once her guard of this asset is relinquished, her sexual availability is, from that point forward, handed over.

This false defense/ threat paradigm complicates honest and respectful connection and lays a dangerous, quiet foundation of ownership.
