the notion that woman’s default sexual orientation is “none” surprisingly persistent despite various contrary evidence

A lot of people are taught — I was — that women don’t actually like sex at all, that they merely put up with it, and that if you attempt to have sex with a woman it is automatically harmful and degrading to her.
Many liberals have embraced this philosophy fully, but have also removed it out of the religious context in which it is typically embedded. That somehow makes it even worse because then it becomes an even deeper core belief.
On the other hand, this is also true:
to be fair, if you are an unattractive heterosexual male (like about 40% of the population), the message you get is that being sexually attracted to anyone is deeply shameful and predatory.
