I have practically no formal training in gender studies, just related psych, so I think that makes me a bit of an interesting interlocutor razz but referencing an entire book is not the way to go in a convo like that, even if it were a legit book. summarize, summarize, summarize.
I don't think that's true but I didn't really read over your response, tbh. xd my attitude toward the whole business is sort of . . . descriptivist, from my knowledge of sexual psychology and economics, and only mildly morally oriented. I'm more interested in understanding why the double standards occur than in affirming or denying them, I guess because women's issues are not my pet subject.
that girl seemed phenomenally bizarrely disposed toward the question of gender roles and perceptions, though. aren't ladies supposed to hate double standards, at least in the case of sexual conduct? razz
she might've been an odd duck that way, and you may think she's dumb, but don't take the stupidity of CBers for granted. quite a few of them aren't stupid at all.
