Where sexual morality is rooted in nothing but consent, sexual mores will be decided by nothing but power.

A) what if everyone were equal, B) can't say for sure why but I'm pretty sure this is b*******

You should try to say why; because then you’d have a better idea of whether it’s true or false.

Help me understand this. What are you saying sexual morality should be rooted in? And what should sexual mores be decided by? I’m trying to follow you, but I just don’t get what you mean.

An account of human nature ordered to ends, sex ordered to procreation, sexual complementarity, marriage, education...

In brief, moving sex from category of power to the categories of the good, the true, and the beautiful, inscribed in sexual mores, customs.

Consider "a) what if everyone were equal" then your premise becomes false.

This is a non sequitur. The logic of my claim wouldn’t hold unless everyone equal in dignity & nature, as embodied rational souls.

You may be grasping at truth I don't get yet, but there's got to be a simpler way to say it

Power that can manufacture consent can also manufacture all those things, or the appearance of them

Simpler ways of saying things can be very true, but often don’t make you think. And we very much need better thinking on sexual morality.

That’s the thing...only the appearances, simulacra of the real thing.

Yes, they belong to same constructivist category. No prior givens of nature means no access to a sexual morality ordered to ends of nature.
