Melanie Phillips: The Cult of Permisiveness

Melanie Phillips asks: Why is the Left so blind to the link between today's sex scandals and the cult of permissiveness?

The reason that the Left is "blind" to it, is because they think it's fabulous.

Phillips also mentions what I have been saying for a long time: sex "education" is grooming.


Here's a great nugget, and so true:

"This is all staggeringly perverse. Man-bashing feminism has much to answer for in creating a climate that came to tolerate the abuse of women and children."

"Demonising men as at worst violent and at best irrelevant, it told women they could and should go it alone.
Men took them at their word and started routinely playing the field — thus treating women and children increasingly as objects to be used and discarded."

"So why are people now shocked by the debauchery that has been unleashed?"

"If you remove constraints on sexual behaviour, this is precisely what you get."

"Permissiveness and sexual abuse are two sides of the same coin."

"We are now merely reaping what we have sown."
