For John, BLUF: We are going through one of those periods when we try to straighten out the world [of sex]. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Oh, this is not the Simone de Beauvoir that I had heard of. I am pretty sure that a number of decades ago I read Ms de Beauvoir's The Second Sex,♠ but I didn't pick up on this thread. Per Mr Stacey McCain, Ms de Beauvoir was a pedophile, and of the worst sort. How blissfully ignorant I was at the time.
Maybe the Instapundit is correct and we need to teach women not to sexually abuse.
