Woman, 38: “I’ve had a lot of sex out of politeness. How do I say no?”

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in April 2018:

Our thanks to James for this piece in The Guardian. An extract from the reply of the “relationship expert” (a woman, inevitably):

If you anticipate that a situation may lead to you having sex out of politeness – perhaps you can recognize the signs by now – whether that’s a first date, a reunion with an old lover, a party where the drinks are flowing, or an invitation back to the apartment of someone whose company you’ve enjoyed but who you don’t know well, take a moment beforehand to set a clear intention, e.g. “I am going to go home on my own tonight”.

Write it down: on a Post-it note, in your phone, somewhere you can refer to if that helps. [J4MB emphasis]

No agency… again.

He’s right. Several times a week I’m reminded of Alison Tieman’s video (4:27) from 2015 Men’s Rights versus Feminism explained using magnets.
