I see this take often, and frankly it disturbs me.

Sex, cuddling, intimacy etc are not “needs” in the same way things like food & water are.

But they are essential to a healthy human experience. And I am concerned when ppl on the left call this incel propaganda Bc...
Most ppl in the left are familiar with concepts of patriarchy, toxic masculinity, etc.

So this idea that sex and intimacy aren’t required sounds like a way to perpetuate toxic masculinity, and in some ways toxic femininity.

Flat out saying human emotion and sexuality is...
Unnecessary seems like a really, really bad idea. This is going to lead to bad things happening.

True, They aren’t necessary for staying alive, but The ability to have sex and emotional intimacy are quite necessary for healthy humanity.
And even asexual folks, even if not engaged directly in sex, still need emotional intimacy, and possibly intimate physical contact like cuddling or hugging.

Not necessary for life, but definitely required for healthy life. I am concerned when leftists ignore this
Lastly- this isn’t incel propaganda. Incel theory is deeply rooted in misogyny and male entitlement. Their take isn’t that men are entitled to sex, their take is men are entitled to own things and women are trophies to own. It’s not about sex, it’s about ownership
