Jason: Just a Theory
In the old days, if a guy was too horny around women that he didn’t know were single, it could be dangerous BECAUSE you didn’t know if she had a husband or boyfriend.
Exactly. Back in the day if you were coming onto some guy’s wife or girlfriend, that guy might give first give you some dirty looks. Then if that didn’t work, he would have an word or two with you. Then if that didn’t work, you’re going to get a punch in the face.
And not only that but after you get hit, no one will call the cops. If you tried to press charges, the cops would laugh and say we don’t make arrests on this bullshit. Your job, career, and life didn’t get ruined because it was more or less normal for men to go after other’s men’s women. No one cared.
I should rephrase that. People did care. They just didn’t care enough to make a big fuss over it and ruin some guy’s job, career and life, for the most part because this was often considered private behavior that other people had no business butting into.
If the woman he was chasing was happily married, it was not a very nice thing to do. You might get some frowns and a few harsh words. Chasing other men’s women was often regarded as SOB behavior at worst and dangerous behavior on the man’s part at best.
If you had an office job, and it went around that one of the guys in the office chased other men’s women, everyone would laugh, and a couple of the women would probably ask him for his number. Mostly people would say, “Why is this important? We don’t care what people do in bed. It’s none of our business!” Some might say, “Mind your own business, dammit!”
This was back around 1975-1985, you know, back in the days of Sexual Liberation and the Sexual Revolution? Back before the feminists and femiservatives tried to stop straight men from having sex?
I can’t believe how repressed and anti-sex we have become. I place most of the blame on Sex-Negative Feminism. Of course we are only repressed and anti-sex when it comes to straight men, who society is trying to stop from getting laid for some insane reason. Straight women, gays, and lesbians get to do whatever the Hell they want. The only sexual harassers, sexual assaulters, and rapists are straight men, I guess because we’re just plain evil or something.
At any rate, thanks a lot, feminists! Thanks for nothing!
