And the issue of "slut-shaming" is mentioned in the comments below this article, because some feel this is a part of societal pressure to force women to behave as men feel they should, by NOT claiming their sexuality for their own in any way, but agreeing to exist only to be sexual objects for men, then mothers, then fade into the background as useless once they grow older. And God forbid they should write or read books that involve sex! So the Romance genre is ridiculed as "not literary", while men authors who write books that include romance and sex are hailed as "innovative". <sigh>
Haven't we grown beyond this yet???
