The desire for rights or the right to desire. The debate around the “me too” movement

Women cannot abdicate our full and unrestricted rights to a life free of violence, but in the process we must take care not to victimize ourselves

Health and Esthetics

A variety of professionals working in  sexuality  sciences have tried over the past few years to intertwine different disciplines such as biology and science., anthropology,  psychology  and, specifically, gender studies, with the desire to build an integrated field to see the  sexuality  from their different angles.

Focusing on one aspect, but without losing the eye of others, the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) has reaffirmed its commitment to advancing all actions for equality between men and women through its Declaration of Sexual Rights. Its latest version was approved in 2014.

#metoo

The issue  of gender equality  has reemerged in recent times, through the emergence of the #metoo movement, in which the naturalization of violence against women has become visible  women  who have been present in secular terms, revealing how the association of power and its imbalances in the gender category are a reality.

However, there have been criticism of this new construction of feminism, arguing that the same barriers between the sexes that feminism intended to break down are being raised in the name of feminism, in order to create a restrictive environment for many elements of sexuality.

Particularly, from the point of view of sexology, they are barriers to desire and its expression and those forms that can be interpreted as prolegomenes, which can lead to coital activity and the construction of a potential love bond.

 Women  cannot abdicate our full and unrestricted rights to a life free of violence, but in the process we must take care not to victimize ourselves, much less to lead to a new puritanism that relegates us to objects of care and puts us back into the so-called safety of the home. Separating men into closed ghettos of their same  sex .

As so many times, we need to explore, through our professional exercises, from the trenches of  sexuality work, how to build bridges, recognizing the gender differences, but always maintaining that gender differences should not represent inequalities.
