This is a great read 👍 something I never considered was that the damage could come up later after you’ve quit.

This part:

men’s blind belief in their entitlement to dehumanise women and to purchase consent, whether that be financially or through one of the multiple other, interconnected, yet equally legitimated means through which women’s ability to say no is held to ransom under the patriarchy.

I’m from the Middle East, where marital rape isn’t recognized. Islam also states a woman who denies her husband is cursed all night. I wonder how many women around me have had to say “yes” thinking they had no other choice.
