So long as we have gender roles around sex, we won’t be getting to the root of the problems here. Men as “conquerer” and seducer, and women as having to be seduced is the traditional set of roles that create the problems with male behavior. And female behavior too.
Manipulation is different between genders yet it’s still manipulation. I don’t know what the solution is, except to hope that consciousness raising occurs to the extent that is possible within genetic tendencies.
