  •  It's a pity that you conflate "self-respect" (2+ / 0-)

    with not having sex. Or that you don't seem to understand that men aren't the only people with a sexual drive.

    •  I think men's drives are different (0+ / 0-)

      Much more powerful, much more physically driven; nearly impossible to repress until orgasm, and, for most of the guys I know, very low standards for selecting a partner.  

      I'm sure there are exceptions on both sides of the aisle.

      Knowing that that was the case for almost every guy that I knew growing up, I think it's an act of self-respect for a woman to filter out the guys who are  interested in them solely as an object from those who show some sort of geunine interest in them as a person.  And even more so, to be able to tell the difference between those who are the former and are acting like the latter.

      I'm starting to feel America again.
