Texas Sex, Gender, Ladynews roundup!

Yes, we’re still here! Worry not. Bunch of deadlines, etc., excuses, this week.

  • There’s a new book by Some Dudes at UT-Austin in the sociology department that says because women are more educated and free than ever before, men now hold more sexual power than women, which is apparently a new thing. I don’t know, you try and figure it out. News outlets are taking the book as another opportunity to note that this means single women will die unhappy and alone. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to do a blow-by-blow of why this is reductive and asinine. Thankfully, Feministing has taken on part of the task.
  • A San Antonio legislator is proposing a domestic violence offender registry.
  • Prostitution is glamorous and harmless, right?
  • Really, right?
