Although I’ve been shirking my responsibilities as the world’s foremost feminist blogger who says “fuck” more often than “the,” the Esquire still sends me outrageous articles here and there. Today he sent me this one from Slate, in which William Saletan discusses studies of women’s physical responses to descriptions of sexual assault and the various ways in which those responses have been interpreted. The big news, apparently, is that many women display physical signs of arousal even when they are mentally repelled by something such as a description of a sexual assault. The Esquire asked, “Why is this being studied? Were these studies funded by some fraternity’s ‘No Means Yes’ program?” I think that about cuts to the center of the issue. Do read the article. It’s really something else.
