PARALELLE LINES / REJECTING NORMATIVE DUDE SCIENCE IN ALL ITS FORMS

This article is like 80% vexed paraphrasing and what any room of self-aware women could tell you about the confunction junction of their sexual desire. As feminism taught us: our lives are our own empirical evidence--if we waited for science to catch up... well, we already know how that goes. (Dunno about the good doctors example of Denzel Washington as example of someone women would like to be play-raped against a dumpster by. Above The Rim/Training Day is maybe too polarizing a set up vis a vis the nurturing-macho dyad she discusses). Not to be gender-essentialist, but I prefer my sex-science news from less gee-whiz sources who already play for our team--our team being feminist evolutionary biology buffs, of course)). Further supporting evidence currently on hand for the no-duh of the of the omnivorous/contradictory/unmappable nature of female sexualities:any/all Catherine Breillat films and this great and confounding book penned by teen-mom era Sontag.
