    Why else would we teach kids to laugh at Pepe Le Pew and Bluto forcing unwanted sexual attentions on unwilling women?

    Why else would "Coward of the County" by Kenny Rogers, or "Run For Your Life" by the Beatles be hits?

    Why is it okay to air the entire SVU genre on network TV, but absolutely not okay to depict consensual sex by a woman?

    In horror movies, why do the sexually-active girls get terrorized and killed (often with phallic weapons), but the "good girls" (the virgin, the sexless Mom) survive?

    Why are Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast considered romantic stories? (One's about a stalker who lives in a sewer; the other's about a kidnapper trying to coerce his captive into marrying him.)  

    And these are just off the top of my head.
