Hookup Culture

A conservative blog for peace links to one Hanna Rosini's piece that sees it not "as socially corrosive and ultimately toxic to women" but as "an engine of female progress—one being harnessed and driven by women themselves" — Boys on the Side. An excerpt:
    “Here in America, the girls, they give up their mouth, their ass, their tits,” the Argentinean said to me, punctuating each with the appropriate hand motion, “before they even know the guy. It’s like, ‘Hello.’ ‘Hello.’ ‘You wanna hook up?’ ‘Sure.’ They are so aggressive! Do they have hearts of steel or something? In my country, a girl like this would be desperate. Or a prostitute.”

    So there we have it. America has unseated the Scandinavian countries for the title of Easiest Lay. We are, in the world’s estimation, a nation of prostitutes. And not even prostitutes with hearts of gold.

    Is that so bad?
It might not seem "so bad" that night, but thinking a bit longer term, how will these girls feel a decade or two down the road (not to mention an eternity), when they're used up, spent, and unloved?
