In a previous post, the development arc of many young women was explored. In it, we saw how many teen girls, through not resisting the urge to fully exploit their new-found sexuality become stunted-growth sluts.
But what about their brothers? How do they fare? Very possibly they live in a household with the mother being the single parent. Sometimes she operates in a slutty manner, trying to extract the big three, validation, tingles and resources from men. The daughters pick up this from her (or from peers even if the mother is not a slut), trying to garner validation, tingles and resources from the boys.
The boys see all of this. What are they to think? Perhaps they learn that being a female is all about exploiting males, often in underhanded ways. This is what females do. Probably calls for him to be a gentleman, to respect women, fall on deaf ears. They may come to the conclusion that women are to be exploited for the once product that they can naturally deliver well, sex. Since she is probably operating in an underhanded way, then it is only fair that I can do so also. So it all becomes a dance of who can better exploit who for what they want.
Who’s fault is it that boys grow up with some measure of this perspective?
