Crystal Bui recently wrote an editorial on hookup culture for Tufts’ student newspaper.“Some genuinely do enjoy hookup culture and feel empowered by dictating the terms of intimate encounters. Because a dating culture is nearly nonexistent on college campuses, some students (male and female) are pushed into this hookup culture and have found it to be dissatisfying and degrading. Maybe hookup culture is our own way of grasping at the safest alternative.
The feelings of empowerment that many participants of the hookup culture describe are frequently contentious, at best, and are often disputed by sociologists, psychologists and those who are spectators to this foreign culture.

Which marriage guy also said (talk about overshare for the first few messages, sheesh). I have said this all before, but I am continually surprised by how little people communicate properly. 2.) If you don't make an attempt to get to know me, how are you going to know if we are compatible? Now before you go on saying that's just how guys are, let me tell you this: I know guys who can carry on a reciprocal conversation quite easily, so it's not just the gender itself (and stop stereotyping! most people i know would have deletes,ignored and moved on Someone needs to get a life.." I won't even comment on the grammar (as I shudder reading it). Hookup culture empowers women to engage in casual sex by providing a ready supply of males and few short-term consequences. What does it enable or permit them to do, other than have more sex? Women often use this term to mean having power and control over a man.
