It was in the book. Actually, I am very impressed with the way Pete Jackson did the movies with such faithfulness to the book. Normally you'd see some of the main characters changed into token minorities, or gender switched, but not so.
And that scene was written long before the advent of Betty Friedan and the She-Man Male Hater's Club of feminism.
*Yet* society views this as being strictly free-willed decision-making on the males part: they are blamed completely for being a"predatory wolf" and therefore society does *nothing* to educate men about "restraining" their urges in order to avoid getting manipulated.

The issue of consent has emerged as a key battleground between attorneys in the case. The defense wants jurors told they can convict the Los Angeles Lakers star only if prosecutors prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she did not consent to sex -- and that Bryant knew it.
"The jury has to be told that if someone consents, that's not submission against her will," argued defense attorney Hal Haddon, who said it is the first time a Colorado judge has had to consider the issue.
Prosecutors said they are required to prove only that Bryant's actions were enough to cause the woman to submit to sex against her will, making the consent question moot.
"By proving the elements (of sexual assault), you necessarily disprove consent," said Matt Holman, an assistant state attorney general helping with the case.
Scott Robinson, a Denver defense attorney who is following the case, said prosecutors were taking an "extreme position" in suggesting her consent does not matter. "It seems anathema to our traditional view of what constitutes rape," he said.

I just want Alicia to come back.
Nobody said you posted it they said you would come back after Phebe worried you left for good.
I don't think you are right, guys -- I think women go to bars to find someone. They just didn't take an interest in you two, that's all.
