Default Feminism confirmed A "win-win" for everyone. [FREE]

Bareket, O., et al. (2018). "The Madonna-Whore Dichotomy: Men Who Perceive Women's Nurturance and Sexuality as Mutually Exclusive Endorse Patriarchy and Show Lower Relationship Satisfaction." Sex Roles.
Quote:
The Madonna-Whore Dichotomy (MWD) denotes polarized perceptions of women in general as either “good,” chaste, and pure Madonnas or as “bad,” promiscuous, and seductive whores. Whereas prior theories focused on unresolved sexual complexes or evolved psychological tendencies, feminist theory suggests the MWD stems from a desire to reinforce patriarchy. Surveying 108 heterosexual Israeli men revealed a positive association between MWD endorsement and patriarchy-enhancing ideology as assessed by Social Dominance Orientation (preference for hierarchical social structures), Gender-Specific System Justification (desire to maintain the existing gender system), and sexist attitudes (Benevolent and Hostile Sexism, Sexual Objectification of Women, and Sexual Double Standards). In addition, MWD endorsement negatively predicted men’s romantic relationship satisfaction. These findings support the feminist notion that patriarchal arrangements have negative implications for the well-being of men as well as women. Specifically, the MWD not only links to attitudes that restrict women’s autonomy, but also impairs men’s most intimate relationships with women. Increased awareness of motives underlying the MWD and its psychological costs can help practice professionals (e.g., couple therapists), as well as the general public, to foster more satisfying heterosexual relationships.

Conclusions
The present study provides support for the feminist account of the MWD, sometimes viewed as alternative to the evolutionary or psychoanalytic accounts, by showing that MWD beliefs correlate with a variety of sexist and derogatory ideologies. Hence, in line with the feminist insight that “the personal is political” (Hanisch 1969), our findings suggest that seemingly individual-level concerns about promiscuity and chastity are in fact strongly related to gender power structures. In addition, that the MWD has negative consequences for men’s well-being adds to the feminist understanding (e.g., Dworkin 1981) that reducing gender inequality, and the ideologies that support it, is good for everyone—men as well as women.

Van Badham in the Guardian, How Female Sexual Liberation Led to Male Sexual Entitlement also called for this link within her article to The Week, The Female Price of Male Pleasure to be read also.
