Twitter, Tea and Biscuits: Review essay on The New Sex Wars by Brenda Cossman

This paper stems from a review of The New Sex Wars by Brenda Cossman to discuss, more broadly, the central argument of the book: the mobilisation around #MeToo constituted the trigger for the sex wars 2.0. This is an ideal text (and pretext) for exploring the terms and repertoires of the debates that existed and that are resurfacing around the connection between the meaning of sex and, as a manifestation of liberation and violence, its constitution as an object of normative regulation. This exercise is based on three axes of problematisation: disputes over the conception of sexuality, its influence on the relation between autonomy and consent, and the role of law as a means of regulation-reparation.
