I posted a letter to the paper yesterday, but there was another letter in Monday's paper that deserves a wider readership:
Your articles about women saying 'no' to casual sex shows hypocrisy because if a United States naval ship docked in Wellington tomorrow, girls from all parts of this nation would rush down, waving their knickers, to meet marines hungry for sex.60 years is a long time to hold a grudge against all women because someone found an American soldier more attractive (and good on her, I wouldn't sleep with him either).
It is no different from what happened in World War II, when Yanks and Kiwis fought among themselves in Wellington's Pigeon Park.
Kiwi women have not changed over the years. Their santimonious, hypocritical atitudes live on. They are home-grown.
I should know - I was around as a Kiwi soldier and saw it all happen
I'd try and explain to him that just because that it's not hypocritical to say no to casual sex with one man, and then sleep with another. But I fear it would be a waste of time.
