Rape And Hookup Culture Are Two Sides Of The Same Coin
For those of you not in the know, “Netflix and chill” is today’s euphemism for hooking up, the Guardian reports. And if you weren’t previously in the know, you are not the only one. You Know What’s Good for You? D, not your more adventurous college roommate. In what Samantha Grossman at Time is cheekily calling ” Hookup Culture Is a Myth Students today having same amount of sex as earlier generation Newser – You know the whole hookup culture of casual sex that’s so prevalent on college campuses?
Taylor fails to quote any college men in her story, an omission typical to the hookup culture genre. But it takes two (or in the case of some campus dalliances, more!) to hook up.
SHARE Many of my colleagues and friends have heard me raise concerns about what appear to be some prevailing trends in today’s college student culture. Over the past two weeks, some of the conversations and interactions I have had with students have reinforced these concerns as has a column from one of today’s newspapers. The first concern is that I see a very strong “Hook-Up Culture” where students engage in all kinds of sexual activity groping, grinding, oral sex, and intercourse simply because it feels good.
There is seldom any romantic love connected with such acts. Parents need to help their children connect sex with intimacy and love. If they’re learning about sex in this mechanical. When I look back at the period of time when some of us were in college and the legal age was 18, most students had learned to drink responsibly at home before even coming to college.
As a result, it was the exception to find someone whose drinking had resulted in their passing out, being transported to the Emergency Room, falling off a roof, etc. When that occasionally happened, others would tend to look at the person and muse “what’s wrong with you? As a result, alcohol consumption is “the thing to get away with” and many students drink irresponsibly with a motivation to “drink to get drunk. The combination of a “Hook-Up Culture” and an “Alcohol Culture” is, in my opinion, a terribly negative one that dramatically interferes with positive student and human development.
So, let me invite some dialog:

Thomas Kuhlenbeck A new rush of deals is about to happen as Rupert Murdoch, Leslie Moonves and the rest of media look at content, not advertising, as the new financial engine. This story first appeared in the April 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Time Warner’s public middle finger to Murdoch and 21st Century Fox hasn’t solidified its independence so much as highlighted what a good idea a Time Warner acquisition might be and, to boot, emphasized the attractiveness of a supersize pure-play content business.
And, too, it would mean Comcast would need another way to maintain its dominance. Perhaps never before has consolidation been so much the flavor of the month, nor has it seemed so difficult to get a taste.
This “hookup culture” BS is a bunch of hysteria dreamed up by old, sexless prudes who were terrified that kids were starting to have sex at an earlier age. So we got all this pseudo-science about “BJ’s being the new handshake” and all the rest of it.
New data shows they were wrong. But according to new data, these Christians are wrong. A sweeping new study conducted by sociologist Martin A. The answer seems to be a little thing called confirmation bias , which is the tendency of people to favor information that confirms their preconceived notions or beliefs.

But there are several problems with the macro-narrative of moral decline.

As with prior research, a complex relationship emerged for both male and female rape mythology in which acceptance increases or decreases based upon the form of hookup culture endorsement examined, as the endorsement of beliefs reflecting heterosexual power dynamics e.
Results supported the primary hypotheses that beliefs concerning hookups and status attainment would be the largest predictor of male rape myth acceptance and female rape myth acceptance. Consistent with prior research, the predictive power of gender and religiosity was initially significant across both male and female rape myth acceptance yet diminished when controlling for levels of hookup culture endorsement.
Furthermore, analyses indicated gender differences among the influences of hookup culture endorsement for female rape myth acceptance alone, as even though beliefs concerning status served as an aggravating factor for female rape myth acceptance, beliefs concerning sexual freedom served as a mitigating factor for women only.

Gay men face enormous pressure to fit into a very narrow view of beauty—often defined on hookup apps like Grindr and Scruff by the groups they leave out: Bruce asked the gentleman out on a date, and after exchanging contact information, he received this message in his inbox: The worst part is that the men you seem to check out are way out of your league.

Public punishment of adulterers in Venice, 17th century Susannah accused of adultery, by Antoine Coypel The term adultery refers to sexual acts between a married person and someone who is not that person’s spouse.

Although the legal definition of adultery differs in nearly every legal system, the common theme is sexual relations outside of marriage, in one form or another.

For example, New York defines an adulterer as a person who “engages in sexual intercourse with another person at a time when he has a living spouse, or the other person has a living spouse.
