Neovictorianism in Campus

So this is doing the rounds lately.
It may be true that the feminist witch-hunt against anything that hurts women’s feelings are going to result in a return to Victorian sexual norms. The end is so sacred that apparently it justifies the means, which are screwing with a lot of boys’ future. But fuck the boys anyway; those who are having sex are the alpha bastards who are screwing all the girls to get some notches. No pity for them.
Not a bad argument; I’m not sure if it’s the alphas who are getting shafted by the date-rape witch hunt; by poor chance they probably are. The rest aren’t getting any poon anyway, they couldn’t possibly be doing any raping.
What’s hilarious is McDonald’s prediction: men will go back to Victorian norms too, and be celibate gentlemen who write a lot of cheesy love letters. But she forgets a small datum: there were no co-ed campuses in the Victorian era. No huge and beautiful institutions where girls aged 18-25 went giggling around in heavy make-up and short skirts.
You won’t get men to be Victorian if the girls don’t do it first. Feminism may be equipped to stop alpha dudes from pumping and dumping women, but it isn’t equipped from making girls start to behave themselves.
And the big question is: from a man’s standpoint, what’s the point of college if you can’t screw the girls? Especially when they go around showing their bodies and giggling in class all day. It’s not like women are incredibly interesting and men love to hear their profound conversations. McDonald exhorts young men to do some actual studying instead of getting drunk all day. But having women around isn’t precisely conducive to studying. Not only because having boobs shown around doesn’t help with concentration; having women around dumbs down any classroom discussion and shifts all topics to stuff women like to talk about.
If men aren’t to have even the vain hope of landing a drunken slut once a semester, there really is no point in having women around. If you wan’t people to go back to Victorian norms, get stable fiancees and do some actual studying; then do like the Victorians and get the women out of higher education. Then the men may do some actual studying and actually cherish the little female contact they can get.
