Have you heard the term sex-critical?

Feminists are fully aware that the term sex-positive has proved confusing for some of you. Sex-positive was never intended to mean all sex needs to be thought of as good by everybody all the time. Sex-positive definitely never meant consent stopped mattering (the opposite, really).

But sex-critical might be a more helpful lens for you, rather than viewing everything as either sex-positive or sex-negative.

Your comment seems very sex-negative, so I invite you to consider how practical/useful that viewpoint is.
