The trickle down effect of overzealous consent courses, a misandrist narrative increasingly fed to little girls and young men being punished for their apparent male privilege means we are well and truly circling the drain. Gender equality at all costs has driven a spike in clinical swipe and dump dating apps. And so what does that mean for love, intimacy and true companionship in life? That first look, first meeting, first kiss and first sexual experience all now homogenised not by common sense but common hysteria which insists women are victims and men are violent. Rather than strike up a conversation and risk in person rejection, bars are aglow with people in phones lowering their dating app radius to 1km so they can swipe and find someone across the room. The same room. Appalling but acceptable in sexual cyberspace when we knew as teens that to be a tease was nothing to aspire to. Young people are not as resilient as they used to be 20 or 30 years ago.

Donald Trump is also currently endorsing Roy Moore — a man accused of sexual misconduct against teenagers, some as young as 14 — to fill a senate seat in order to have the votes to help him fulfill a vow to confirm only anti-choice judges to the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, America now has a laundry list of powerful men being accused of sexual harassment and assault. So is it any wonder that women who have sex with men are messaging and tweeting me daily talking about how has shut down their sex drives?

Sure, there have been a few men who have claimed to be allies and peaked my interest since then — I had a two-week fling with a Brit on a work visa and an unexpected romance with an old friend — but nothing has worked out. And when I started connecting the dots, I realized that these men who claimed to support women were often bringing me down the most. You probably know one or 10, if you, like me, went to a woke-obsessed liberal arts college of these self-proclaimed feminists. Or the guys who mansplain mansplaining to you on the first date.
We all love being told that we are naturally beautiful, in theory. My Fenty foundation makes me feel like a queen. With or without makeup, all that matters is how you feel about yourself.

Sometimes, news stories are too hard to grapple with or perhaps even triggering when they first come out.

From Feminism to the Red Pill
As our relationship with social media evolves, we find ourself using tools like Instagram as more than just visual inspiration—we’re using it to learn more about ourselves and the world around us. We see this showing up as we embrace our sexuality in all aspects of our lives, including our sexuality. Our sexuality is one of the most personal and intimate details of our lives—and often it does not get the celebration that it deserves. Whether it’s from external pressures or internal resistance, we are not always giving our sexuality the nurturing, education, and support that it deserves.
As we dove into the world of sex-positive influencers, we realized how different this looks for each and every person, and how essential it is to be inclusive and intersectional when having conversations surrounding sex, sexuality, and body-positivity. We love that these people are doing the work and creating a dialogue around sex to reduce the shame and stigma surrounding it—and to uplift and empower people everywhere to connect with their bodies and their partners in new ways.
Full disclosure: I’m a huge online dating advocate. For years, I journeyed the waters of dating apps and ultimately wound up meeting my partner of nearly two years on Tinder. Can you even believe it?

Beyond the massive perk of meeting the love of my life, the online dating world taught me plenty of lessons — from self-acceptance to listening skills to the art of graceful rejection and beyond.
In many ways, I feel like my experiences with dating have amplified my feminist values and my confidence in being a strong woman. To be honest, I often ask myself if I would have been ready to meet my current boyfriend, had I not opened myself up to grow through my many dating experiences prior.
