good comment! There is a somewhat related term for women. A term like "spinster." (old maid is another). Spinsters are supposedly sexless women. Point being they are not attached to a man. But who is responsible, according to patriarchy? The woman, of course. A woman is "sexless" due to her own being. A man is de-sexed due to a woman. According to this, it's always a woman's fault and also about sex. ugh!I liked Sheila Jeffreys book about spinsters. "The spinster and her enemies" is the title. It says a lot.
