Pearl-Clutching Alert: Ambitious College Sluts Taking Over Campuses [Jezebel]

At Jezebel, a response to that NYT article I posted a couple of days ago.

I know, I know. Hold the phones. Did you not know women are doing this? Because THEY ARE DOING IT LADIES. They are also DOING IT ON PURPOSE! Bet you didn’t see that coming. (In my day, we did this too. We called it college.)

If it all stopped there, we might just go on about our day not thinking too much about this trend piece that feels two years too late. But that’s not all: Instead, we are treated to the ol’ switcheroo, where suddenly right after the portion of the story about smirky virginity loss and fun romps with dudes you can’t even have coffee with, the story shifts into (and never exits) a long list of regrets and concerns, including a story of rape. Whereas part one of the story reads like an episode of Girls, part two is an after-school special. 

Also quotes from Penn grad Dr. Logan Levkoff’s Response to the NYT’s ‘Sex on Campus’ over at the Huffington Post.
