The consensus today seems to be in both the liberal and conservative communities that all American males in their youth were/are sexual predators and there seems to be evidence to support that.
This is somewhat confusing to many representatives of the senior population.
They remember the interaction of the sexes quite differently.
Many tell us that in their youth the sexually predatory male was largely unknown in what passed as “polite” society.
Certainly not in high school and not even in college for the most part throughout the 60’s ( though one senior citizen reports there were incidents involving the male teaching staff and female students that generated a certain amount of conversation ).
Historians may at some point come to ask how much easy access to birth control and abortion had to do with the apparent change in male attitudes resulting in what we started to see in the 1970’s and beyond
Back in “the day” for many older Americans there was a real fear of pregnancy among the boys and girls and it was the rare boy or girl that didn’t show great restraint because of that.
There are always exceptions but they were the “bad” boys and “bad” girls from the “wrong side of the tracks” living out on the “Pike” as they called it.
This would be an interesting angle for some credible researcher or institution to pursue given the realities of the world today, though it would not be a study that can be conducted without condemnation from some elements of society.
