This interesting idea only serves to further commodify women’s bodies — a kind of reward for good behavior. Wrong direction! How about all of the men who aren’t trying “win back dominance over the territory of women’s bodies” police and punish the ones who are? Men have only had dominance over women’s bodies for the past 10,000 years — since the advent of agriculture (and the patriarchy that came with it). How about we revert back to a time where men had no expectation that they had dominance over anyone else, male or female? I think that would be a better way to go.
