“...if bisexual women had an ounce of sexual politics, they would stop sleeping with men.”
Nothing spoils sex like sexual politics, does it? And perhaps that is its intent.
So much of contemporary 'sexual politics' strikes me as being little more than the modern forms of Victorian prudery or narrow and provincial American puritanism.
Freud thought that human beings were basically bisexual (or omnisexual, one might say), and that which particular aspects of this potential were realised during the course of their lifetimes depended very much upon domestic and wider social conditioning. I am inclined to agree with him.
The arrogance of people who think they have the right to even ask the question of whether I exist and know what I actually feel in real life in my own actual experience is astonishing.
I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it. Julie Bindel is a fanatic. Like all fanatics she sees the world through the narrow tunnel of her extreme views. When she realises that the real world doesn't conform her particular doctrine, she throws a hissy fit. Her extreme brand of feminism is almost religious.
