In Contraceptive Culture, Women Can Never Rest |NCR Blogs

 

Another great article from Jennifer Fulwiler.

“In other words, women are now expected to be sexy from the cradle to the grave. And the message is clear: If men are not lusting after you, you are “invisible.”

We have contraception to thank for this.

For better or worse, a woman’s physical appearance has always been an important factor in the way she’s perceived by others and the way she perceives herself. But before the widespread acceptance of contraception, there was more of an emphasis on being beautiful than being sexy.”

What a sad, sad truth.
