Consent and the Myth of the Cold Woman

Isn’t it funny that women are called cold, but no one questions why a man could be turned on enough to fuck a woman who has become a still mass of cells, each of them quietly (or noisily) saying, “No. I don’t want this!”

I hereby flip this. Any man who calls a woman cold is in fact outing himself as cold-hearted. Said woman is exactly the opposite of cold. She is so full of life, so sentient, that she cannot stand an assault to her personhood and must go into self defense mode, playing dead as evolution has taught her to do when a wild animal is near and she cannot run or fight.
