I think this in some way answers the question "why can't we really care about climate change?"

On Maybe Sex Is The Least Fun Thing Two People Can Do

@Michael R Agreed, this is so refreshing. I think a totally unintended consequence of sex-positive feminism is the reinforcement of traditional notions of masculinity.
