Over half of women ages 18 to 29 have received an explicit image they never asked for, according to a Pew Research Center study. In January, California state Sen. Ling Ling Chang, a Republican, introduced legislation that would make it illegal to send unsolicited nude images, punishable by a fine.
But the fact that this is a real enough problem to warrant lawmaker attention shows how little MeToo has made inro in our culture. Similarly, the new focus on consent in recent years seems to be a band-aid, not a comprehensive solution. There are contracts for college students to to indicate consent to sexual activity, and there are now even apps for people to use to a consent contract before sex.
Consider reed Rep. I would start shaking, crying, throwing up. Ultimately, the problem in our culture right now seems to be rooted in a me-first mindset of so many random nudes an attitude that prioritizes personal sexual gratification over honoring and respecting the human dignity of others, including would-be sexual partners. The modern sexual revolution is generally depicted as a welcome liberation, the beginning of a new era of pleasure. But is that interpretation correct? Men are victims, and advocates, too: For male survivors of sexual assault — like me — MeToo can help change culture of silence.
Undergirding our modern sexual mores is the notion that sexual intimacy can be random nudes, and achieved without pain to either partner, without actual personal intimacy — the kind that can only be acquired by communication and companionship over a period of time, not a few hours at a bar.
Curbing the sending of inappropriate sexual images to strangers is a good first step. But when it comes to healing the toxic, often selfish norms of our sexual culture, much more is needed.
