atlashead Posted January 17, 2017 Share Posted January 17, 2017 I read something like "Men's sexuality-dictated by nature. Women's-dictated by man.", supposedly by Rand. I read an analysis which I found to be totally incorrect. It said that women's PURPOSE is defined by man. This is not what Rand meant, I contend. It is the WOMAN who carries a child. Thus, in any toxic relationship, only the woman can totally control whether a baby is born. Thus, a relationship between any man and a woman can be moral, as long as a child is not created. A relationship between a man and a woman where the child is born into slavery is immoral. A relationship between two who are capable of not hurting the child, and the child's not born into compulsion, is a moral one. Thus, it is WOMEN, by nature, who can use sex as a weapon, but men cannot use sex as a weapon, because it is immoral to an unborn child; which objectivists believe to be potentially good in all cases, because objectivists do not believe that one's parentage=a person. There are other points to be made, but they are not in concretes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
