The price of 'liberation'

"One of the historical ironies is that the ['Sex and the City'] lifestyle has been promoted most ardently by women .... They pitch it as liberationist and as a return to nature. As it’s played out, however, it has de-natured young women, objectified them, and locked them in rather cramped emotional prisons."

— Mike Aquilina, vice president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology,  reviews The Thrill of the Chaste.
