Skip to comments.We need to talk about sexual assault in marriage

Eight years into our marriage, sitting in a therapists office with my husband, I mustered all my courage and said my deepest, darkest truth: When we have sex, I feel like Im being violated. The unwanted sex at times made me sick: Once I had to run straight from bed to the bathroom, where I retched into the toilet. I spared him and the therapist that detail.
My husband shrugged and, staring ahead with more indifference than disdain, replied, Shes always so melodramatic.
. . .
I acquiesced. At the time, it didnt feel like a choice; it felt inevitable. I lived every evening dreading the signals of my husbands desire. I bargained my way out of sex as often as I could. I gloried in being sick enough to have the right to refuse.
On the nights when I couldnt get out of it, we used a method that I had taught myself to tolerate and that he, astoundingly, tolerated as well: I read a book to distract myself for as long as I could while he did the thing he needed to do. I did not let him kiss me for the last several years of our marriage. That was the rule . . . and I dont have to pretend to like it. This satisfied him.

I am a humanities professor who teaches feminist theory, models feminist behavior for my students and my own children, and has achieved success in a male-dominated field. Last year, my teenage son and I chanted in support of womens reproductive rights at the Womens March in Washington . . .

I feel sorry for both her and her husband. Why would a person like this marry a man, and why would she stay with a man who was so far from whatever it is she is looking for and continue for years when she would not "let him kiss" her? Why would her husband stay with a cold and malicious witch long enough for reading a novel to become a habit of hers?
Their problem, not mine. I don’t want to hear about them.
She has self-identified her problem.
So, what did she marry him for? Money maybe?
That’s a mouthful, it’s much easier to say fully retarded.
What a bitch.
This is old news. We learned from feminists back in the 90's that all sex is rape. This is just new packaging for an old project.
She’d prefer that government be her Sugar Daddy so she could only put out when she could get something out of it.
project = product. I got the “pro” part right.
The wife is committing spouse abuse.
last time I checked, divorce is legal in this country.
I would have filed for divorce the next day, and tossed that BITCH to the curb!!
This satisfied him.
Not a chance. Only a mentally ill and deluded person could write such a thing.
Geez, what a mentally disturbed woman.
A significant percentage of American women are man haters.
Her choice of profession is such a stereotype, its comical.
She’s an angry leftist cow. But what is her husband? My bet is he’s a beta-male who also likes to virtue signal his SJW credentials.
They must both be two cynical, superficial, selfish people.
The more these people keep digging in to the private relations between the sexes, the more they will kill them.
Another rash of #metoo.
