This.

It is a relatively new development that most women can even afford to not get married. And even so, there still is massive social pressure to at least have a boyfriend.

All men, especially subpar men who do not add anything to a woman's life, benefit from this.

Now, I would consider coercion by society as a whole to be a bit different from direct, male on female coercion (be it violent, as in, using their physical strength to intimidate women, or financial, like using prostitutes) but still.

All men who have sex with women benefit from patriarchy, none of them can know for sure whether the women they have sex with would have decided to have sex with them if they were truly free.

That's a very uncomfortable thing to admit to oneself.

I don’t believe consent is something women can really do currently. I know that’s a hot take but tell me there’s ever a situation in which she can freely say no.
