Liberal Millennials, Not Surprisingly, Fail At Sex Too, by Kurt Schlicter.
Romance used to be fun and now it is fraught. …
From the Atlantic piece: “According to a November 2017 Economist/YouGov poll, 17 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 now believe that a man inviting a woman out for a drink ‘always’ or ‘usually’ constitutes sexual harassment.” Well, that’s 17% of the population that self-selects out as too stupid to ever be loved.
There is also the issue of political selection. It turns out leftists’ big question in sizing up a potential mate is, “Does this person like the bad orange man?” A “no” to that question screens out the potent/fertile folks. Conservatives’ big question is, “Is this person an idiot?” Sadly, that kind of high bar is going to do a lot of disqualifying too.
And then there is the curse of screens. Technology is the root of all evil and most loneliness. Look, if you are staring at your iPhone all the time and texting people who are literally sitting at the restaurant table with you (Well, congratulations for at least leaving your mom’s basement – that’s something) then you are never going to graduate to the more advanced modes of interpersonal interaction.
