Alas, you’re not wrong, mario savioni. The thing is… sex is a universal human need, as per Maslow. Women need it just as much as men to feel fulfilled, unless one is asexual of course.

Your war metaphor rattles me because it is only too apt and a very sad state of affairs I can’t deny as I’ve been on the receiving end of sexual assault a few times.

We can all do better, but for this to happen, we really need to move past the gender divide and the gender construct and embrace our shared humanity. Whether you and I will see this in our lifetime remains to be seen.

PS/Apologies for taking so long to get back to you.
