This begins a new category in my sadly-neglected blog: links to (serious, well-done, academic) research that supports feminist views. If I stop neglecting the blog, I hope this will become a resource for the feminist having an argument with a status-quo defender, as well as an eye-opening reading list for feminism newbies.
Research interviewing men who buy sex about their attitudes and motives. Scary shit; comes with a trigger warning for violent language quoted. Particularly frightening is that (for good reason) men who tried to solicit sex from the researchers were excluded: the result is that the subset of men included is the nicest of the sex-buyers.
