I don’t like to divulge any info about myself on this tumblr but I’ll give a little bit of my history only because it relates to this story:
The real men don’t buy girls campaign is a popular movement to curb the amount of sexual exploitation of child and teen prostitutes. It is aimed at western men who vacation and solicit these individuals.
I did an MSF tour in the Dominican Republic about 2 years ago. After my duties were done I decided to see some tourist attractions. I believe this may have been the final straw for me and the feminist ideology. When I was there I saw the signs and symptoms of what many people would call “Sex Tourism” I saw wealthy adults from the US, Canada, Europe and other nations come to the area to essentially buy the sexual company of teens and young adults. Not just one or two buyers but I saw several in a few days at a tourist spot. I couldn’t even go out for a nice dinner in a classy place without seeing it. Out in the open.
But Here’s the Catch: The Adults Buying These Teenagers were WOMEN.
I was shocked. Romance tourism or Exotic Singles Getaway is the term that’s used and there were ample patrons. They were proud of the young “men” they had on their arms. They were proud to buy the sexual favors of teens and children and they did it openly.
Question: What’s the difference between a man engaging in Sex tourism and a Woman going on a Romance Tour? — Fundamentally, nothing.
Society puts the Romance Tourism aimed at middle aged women in a more positive light by making it a form of female empowerment. Cougars finding young men to sleep with them; expressing their sexuality and letting loose. However, a businessman going to Thailand for sex is deemed as a reprehensible individual who may face legal recourse (and rightfully so). It’s not just DR. It is a worldwide thing. South and Central America, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe these women have free reign to participate in this practice by picking up a beach-bum or foreign lover.
This incident wasn’t what put the final nail in feminism’s coffin for me it was the reaction when I arrived home. I had a wonderful time but when I explained this phenomenon to male and female friends they dismissed it as “empowerment”. I begged them to consider that many of these boys were underage and to switch the genders but it had no effect. The people I chatted with were mostly university educated young women who were rationalizing pedophilia and prostitution in one fell swoop because they were so heavily indoctrinated by feminist ideals that fairness was a moot point. Female friends and male friends alike said there was nothing wrong with it but at the same time would spit in the face of any grown man who solicited sex from a woman underage or otherwise and heaven help him if it was provable in a court of law.
Turn on your television. There are programs by the dozens glorifying middle aged women expressing this predatory sexual behavior as if it is harmless.
We probably won’t see a “Real Women Don’t Buy Boys” campaign because it will ruin the fun of a small group of women. Hypocrisy at its worst.
I was disgusted at the arrogance of what I saw. These women who didn’t look unlike my neighbours back home flaunting their affairs and illegal activity in the open and exploiting impoverished individuals. If they wished to be treated equally these women would wish to be deemed as reprehensible, criminal and devoid of morality as their male counterparts not as glorified objects of desire cashing in the stock in the sexual revolution.
Wrong is wrong no matter who does it. Feminists, if they were worth their salt should have been the first to demonize these criminals. But they didn’t. Naturally they gave them a pass.
Feminism needs to address this maxim soon or the males in the west will wake up one day, realize the odious and wicked nature of feminism and as a group men of every color, creed and nationality will trample it under-foot.
