Nothing is every womens' fault, another in a long, long series

If there's one tangible thing that men can do to help end sexism—and create a healthier culture in which young people come of age—it's to stop chasing after women young enough to be their biological daughters. 
Notice that he doesn't suggest that young women stop encouraging older men to chase them. And they do. It's not like women in their late teens and twenties couldn't find partners closer to their own age. Why is it the man's fault that that he might take advantage of such an opportunity? And why is it sexism?

  1. Absolutely! Ever hear of the "power fuck" in which young girls offer themselves sexually to men old enough to be their fathers in hopes of advancing their careers? This all came out with the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and was deplored by Pat Ireland who was head of the National Organization for Women at that time. That's maybe the one thing she ever said that made sense.
