It can be hard to feel justified in your actions when people are hell-bent on humiliating you. Especially as a woman, standing your grand in your expression of your sexuality is a constant uphill battle.
Charlotte makes a point to voice her desire to be herself and it really being a man’s issue. This is true but at the same time women have to understand, generally speaking, high value men will always shun this type of behavior. It has to do with understanding how a male dominated society has always operated since antiquity. Only in today’s age with DNA testing does a woman enjoy the privilege of promiscuous behavior without apparent consequences. In the past a child would be a bastard and grow up without a father. Now the child has knowledge of father but love and presence is generally absent. My article on “The Economic Devastation Wrought By Parents Withholding Children” is the result of this type of behavior. True it is pride that makes men do what they do but the bottom line right or wrong the result is the same. So women have to ask what’s more important proving men wrong or doing what would most likely be best for children.
