Turning life into a "lifestyle" is the ultimate trivialization.
Your view of women is contradictory at best. On the one hand you believe the society represses the female sex drive from the earliest stage of development, but you give no reason for that repression. On the other hand you believe that women are mercenary and suppress their own sex drive so they can manipulate men.
Women do not have the same sex drive as men because their role in nature is not fertilization of the ovum, but gestation, childbirth, and nurturing. If women were just as "horny" as men you would have seen a dramatic change in their behavior with the advent of reliable contraception. But all we see is confusion and ruination because so many women have tried to "liberate" themselves from their female natures with the mistaken idea that they will be more attractive as mates.
Women are governed by the feeling of love, not the expectation of orgasm. Orgasm is unnecessary for the female and is more an accident of differentiation of the sex organs during fetal development. The innervation of the perineum occurs before there is a distinction between the penis and the clitoris and while the penis does have a function the clitoris does not - much like male breasts.
Two males have the same sex drive, and two females have the same sex drive, but a male and a female do not; they are complements and that exerts a moderating force on sexual behavior. Look at the difference in the behavior of gay men and lesbians.
It is fair to say that gays have a "lifestyle" and lesbians have a "lifestyle", but a married couple with children lives a procreative life.
On Talking Sexual Assault at UCSB

Social organization follows biology, not the other way around. Every human society regulates sexual behavior because of its critical importance to reproduction which is essential to survival of the species.
Deconstructing social forms doesn't change our biology or the "feelings" associated with the distinctive reproductive roles of male and female. All it does is withdraw the social supports for optimal reproduction and survival.
Marriage assigns responsibility for offspring to the procreative couple giving their child two biological parents which is a clear survival advantage. Unlike bears and wildebeests the human male loves, protects, and provides for his children and that is why he requires sexual fidelity of the woman he marries. He doesn't lose that feeling because "marriage is over", nor does he accept a promiscuous woman as a mate. Those "feelings" are biologically-based. By the same token contraception doesn't change the woman's feelings about fidelity even though the source of those feelings is reproduction.
We have had fifty years of reliable, readily available contraception along with relentless pressure to use it. Do today's women have the same feelings men have because they no longer have to worry about pregnancy? No. A chemical fix or a condom doesn't give a woman a male sex drive. Only two people with the same role in reproduction will have the same sex drive. That is why you see phenomenal promiscuity among gay men, but a woman with a hundred sex partners a year could only be a prostitute and her job has nothing to do with her sex drive.

The reproductive imperative is universal, but the roles in reproduction are dichotomous and that is why males and females do not have the same sexual appetite even without the encumbrance of pregnancy.
I described above how I think it would be if women really had a male sex drive and the description reminded me of the promiscuity of male homosexuals. There you have two people with the same sex drive, but without the moderating influence of the female. It isn't complementary, but compounding. The drive is relentless but disengaged from its purpose and its partner. It is only temporarily satisfying and therefore the appetite has a high potential for addiction.

Tabatha, Voting is made mandatory only when those in power can be certain of the outcome. The low turnout in this election means that people think both parties suck and voting for either is pointless. Those who enthusiastically voted for Obama in 2008 bought a pig in a poke and a great many of them deserted the Democrats when they realized that he was useless as tits on a bull.
The Democrats have built a coalition of angry women, la Raza, blacks, and gays and have discounted the interests of the American working man and his family. So people who have never voted Republican in their lives find themselves outsiders in a country they no longer recognize as their own. Hoping that all is not lost they vote Republican because they think nothing could be worse than Obama and his motley crew.

We have all sorts of publicly-funded institutions that were designed to serve the American demographic as it existed before 1965. The public funding continues while the people served are increasingly foreign. Should all publicly funded institutions be abolished, residual funds be distributed among those who paid in. and start over with privately organized and funded programs to serve only the needs of the people who directly organize and fund them? Public schools, for example?

So who decides which laws are unjust? Are all immigration laws unjust?

The Democrats appealed to the very narrow self-interest of angry women, gays, blacks, and illegal immigrants to build a coalition they hoped to replace all those Americans whose family interests Democrats no longer support or even recognize.

Sixteen year-old girls are not thinking; they are acting on feelings that they interpret as love and they interpret the male's sexual interest as love. They don't think about babies or settling down; they don't think about completion, they don't think about a test relationship; they don't think about contraception or abortion.
If reproduction depended upon the female's awareness of what she "deep-down" wants we would have died out long ago. It isn't a matter of what she wants, but what nature wants. Nature wants the woman to be selective, even if her selection is largely unconscious. Nature wants the child to have two parents and rewards that by giving the child a survival advantage.
If women were driven by sexual appetite then there would be no need for alcohol and no need to be particular about a partner. There would be no need for prostitution. There would be no need for elaborate declarations of consent. Sex would be readily available, free, and satisfying to everyone. Of course, virginity, and fidelity would be outmoded and promiscuity would be de rigueur. I have my doubts that a man selecting a woman to be the mother of his children and his lifetime companion would want the field to be solidly held by women who had had sexual relations with scores of men and who put sexual satisfaction at the top of their list of requirements.
In my day women in college were known to be looking for someone to marry. For most of them education and career training were seen as self-improvement while waiting to find someone. Women are doing the same thing today, but they either do not recognize it or will not admit it. For college men - why buy the cow if all you want is some cream in your coffee?

Men and women are sexual complements and they differ dramatically. The male experiences sexual appetite - a quest for orgasm because his role in reproduction is fertilization. His short reproductive cycle is nothing more than arousal, intromission, and ejaculation. The human female, on the other hand, has a reproductive cycle that begins with ovulation and only ends with the weaning of a child. Though orgasm may accompany sexual intercourse, it is unnecessary for the woman. What drives her is the need to complete her sexual cycle through gestation, giving birth and nursing her child.
Projecting the male sexual appetite onto females may be convenient for men but it is ruinous for women. While the male's reproductive imperative is recognized, accommodated, even celebrated, the female's imperative operates out of sight, unconsciously, and is even denied by women who strike a pose of unfettered sexual appetite. But it is an imperative and thwarting natural processes has consequences.
For college women the consequence has been the substitution of love, marriage, and childbearing with the "relationship", which is a euphemism for a sexual partner that has a limit of roughly two years - coinciding with the female cycle. After two unproductive years the woman starts over again with another quest for love. Every two years through college, graduate school, and career she repeats the quest until she finds herself on the other side of thirty, unmarried, and childless, while the men she was waiting for to become financially able choose mates on the basis of youth and fertility.
You are right to point out the other social forces that have created this ruination, but your solution of partying and orgasm tells me that you don't have any daughters.

The conflict in the college woman's mind is not between enjoying recreational sex and being shamed for pursuing sexual pleasure; it is a much deeper conflict rooted in her nature.
In humans the female is the primary selector because she is looking for a male who shows a willingness to commit to her and her offspring; that is to say, she interprets her feelings of confidence and acceptance as "love", and that feeling leads her to submit to sexual intercourse. She can be wrong about the male's intentions and that is why a commitment or public promise before intercourse is prudent.
The human male selects for youth and fertility but he is more of a sexual opportunist and will engage in sex with willing partners though he has no intention of entering into a permanent relationship. When he does fall in love he is willing to satisfy the female's need for commitment, fidelity, and he will perform his role as protector and provider of mother and child.
College women get "plastered" to suppress their natures - their need for love and commitment. But they can't be drunk all the time so the contradictions take the form of denial, blame, and aggression.
