@297 Re: Andrea Dworkin, I'm afraid that "All sex is rape" is a very fair synthesis of her arguments, and her disclaiming this is just sophistry (on her part, not yours for quoting her). What do you think she meant by "equality", which sex and pleasure could survive? I'd say you can look to a quote from another of her books: "For men I suspect that this transformation begins in the place they most dread -- that is, in a limp penis. I think that men will have to give up their precious erections and begin to make love as women do together."
So sure, she didn't think all heterosexual sex was necessarily rape so long as the man didn't penetrate the woman or get an erection.
No opinion on the rest of the thread :-)

@7: As a 6'5" galoot, I take umbrage. Have you ever tried walking into a clothes store and finding a pair of size 14 shoes you like? How about finding a good pair of jeans with a 32" waist and a 36" leg? There are very few cars in which I can fully sit up without jamming my head against the ceiling. I must descend many staircases with extreme caution so I don't knock my head.
It's not all peaches and cream being enormously tall.
Give me a moment to feel bad for you
