Your entire argument falls apart when you bring sexual assault of men into the equation. Or are you saying the right need only embrace same-sex marriage among men?

Also, as a feminist, I find your pinning of everything onto the monstrous male libido to be particularly problematic. The male libido is not this force of the universe that can’t be stopped; it is a highly personal and cultural phenomenon.

Finally, there is a world of difference between systemic sexual aggression and misunderstood cues at a college party. There’s a world of difference between Weinstein and Aziz Ansari, for example.
