In this episode, Helen has a conversation with Louise Perry, journalist and author of the recently released “The Case Against the Sexual Revolution.” They cover Perry's background, the reason for her success, and their shared long-term vision of demographic collapse. Helen wrote a review of this book for The Institute of Family Studies, excerpted here:
Not only is Perry’s set of evidence eminently understandable to an audience of young women, her tone is empathetic and humble, neither condescending nor blameful. She admits to her own belief of the lie, and believes that most who do, do so earnestly. This combination of accessibility and charity could be what makes The Case Against the Sexual Revolution effective in convincing young women to be chaste—much more effective than the litany of explicitly socially conservative and antifeminist books that have aimed for the same for many years. Already, it has served as the impetus for one such conversion of heart. Bridget Phetasy cited Perry as the inspiration for her article “I Regret Being a Slut,” which went viral on social media in early August.
