"The Sons of Eve" believe gender is socially constructed to legitimize patriarchal distributions of power and privilege. Qualities traditionally associated with masculinity have been heralded, while qualities associated with feminity have been villified.

Patriarchy permeates every institution of our society. Christian institutions have traditionally played a key role in legitimizing patriarchy through the doctrine of women's responsibility for original sin. As Eve was the first woman penetrated, receptive sex has become taboo.

"The Sons of Eve" say this is bullshit. We are a community of male-identified persons (and female-identified allies) - Queer and hetero alike - who believe in fucking with gendered sex codes. We call for all men to publicly embrace penetration, anal pleasure and the experience of sexual vulnerability.

While much has been done in mainstream feminist movements to herald the masculine qualities of women, little has been done to herald the feminine qualities of men. Every man alive has the capacity to experience anal pleasure. When all men publicly embrace sexual receptivity, we can begin to elevate the penetrated from their ghetto of otherness.

Though "The Sons of Eve" are born as a small livejournal community dedicated to discussing issues of penetration and social justice, our ultimate goal is broad social change. Membership is open; all are invited.

"The Sons of Eve" stand by the lyrics of our theme song:

Though some folks think penetration's beyond reprieve
It's really more transformative than you'd believe
Once it's in your ass you'll never want it to leave
Heels to Jesus, we're the "Sons of Eve"
Heels to Jesus, we're the "Sons of Eve"
