There is ample evidence of sexual relations, from rapes to what appear to be relatively symbiotic romantic partnerships, between white slave masters and black women in the Antebellum South.

A strong male prevalence has been observed in autism spectrum disorder ASD since its definition, but the behavioral manifestations of sex disparity have yet to be clarified. Here, we investigate sex differences in the perception of the Numbness Illusion NIa procedure based on a tactile conflict, in adults with ASD and with typical development.

Pornography: Men Possessing Women is a book about pornography by the anti-pornography radical feminist author and activist Andrea Dworkinin which the author argues that pornography dehumanizes women and that the pornography industry is implicated in violence against women. Dworkin analyzes and extensively cites examples drawn from contemporary and historical pornography as an industry that hates and dehumanizes women. Dworkin argues that the industry is implicated in violence against women, both in its production through the abuse of the women that are used to star in it and in the social consequences of its consumption by encouraging men to eroticize the domination, humiliation and abuse of women.
