A recent study in the prestigious Archives of Sexual Behavior last month has garnered significant media attention due to the bombshell revelations that Americans are having less sex than ever. Specifically, and most surprisingly, the Millennial generation appears to be having less sex than anyone, despite all the benefits that technology affords in finding casual sex. This was not the first time that research found similar results. Indeed, another study published in summer of 2016 came to the same conclusion: Millennials, despite all hype to the contrary, were the most prudish generation in a century.
Excellent article. thanks for posting. In the first world of snowflakes, where a micro-aggression can be considered a violation, who need to be raped to claim victim status?
About 25(?) years ago, I read an opinion piece where the author looked at the then nascent culture of victimhood and predicted that a society that looked upon pity as a virtue was not going to be a nice place to live. i thought I understood that comment back then, I think I understand it better now.
Interesting form of voluntary segregation, "I tend to view myself as a victim, others who don't view themselves as victims avoid me like the plague. Why are all my friends losers?"
From what I have read, the author's experience with the media is common, if the opinion of the expert does not fit the narrative, the opinion gets deleted.
In a similar line of thought, one wonders what the effect of this ideology is on the employment rate of women from certain colleges.
I note that at college X, people of group identity A, B, and C, do an awful lot of protesting about the unfairness of life and societal injustice.
Note to HR: Don't hire people of group identity A, B, or C who attended college X. Please review our intern program list for the same.
