For John, BLUF: Nothing to see here; just move along.
At least amongst humans.
From the Blog Radical Wind, a post from way back on 15 December 2013.
Here is the second paragraph:
This is a developed recap from what I’ve been saying in various comments here and there in the last two years or so. [A]s a radfem I’ve always said PIV is rape and I remember being disappointed to discover that so few radical feminists stated it clearly. How can you possibly see it otherwise? Intercourse is the very means through which men oppress us, from which we are not allowed to escape, yet some instances of or PIV and intercourse may be chosen and free? That makes no sense at all.You ask, how does one get pregnant and the author rightly points out you don't need penetration for those aggressive little sperm to make it to the point of fertilization.♠
On the other hand, this takes the position that [some] women just aren't smart enough, or actualized enough, to understand that they are not enjoying sex, but rather are being repressed.
Here is the last paragraph:
Lastly, from a structural point of view, as a class oppressed by men, we are not in any position of freedom to negotiate what men do to us collectively and individually within the heterocage. Men, by whom we are possessed, colonised and held captive, are the sole agents and organisers of PIV. Men dominate us precisely so we can’t opt out of sexual abuse by them; intercourse is the very means through which men subordinate us, the very purpose of their domination, to control human reproduction.So, whether it is Ms Hillary Clinton or the RadFem Author of the Radical Wind Blog, we are finding women who think that large numbers of women are ignorant and can't be trusted to do anything but what they are told to do by nearby male figure authorities.♥ This forms a puzzle for those of us who grew up thinking that women were strong individuals and capable of making their own decisions.♦ Are we now left to think that women, or at least large numbers of women, need protection and guidance. I hope not. I hope Mrs Clinton is wrong.
And what are we going to do about all those animals on farms and out in the wild? Are we going to create more veterinarians, so that all animal procreation is by artificial insemination? Then how do we control the randy males of each species? This is a mess.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

♠ I had a college classmate get his girlfriend (later, wife) pregnant without penetration and through her panties.
♥ Ms Clinton's formulation in India, mentioning Husbands and Sons makes it sound almost Sharia-like.
♦ I still remember Susan Sawyer being the strongest person in Fourth Grade, able to open ink bottles the rest of us couldn't cope with.
