Impotent young men

The Wash. Post reports that sexually aggressive girls is causing impotence on college campuses:
It seems that for a sizable number of young men, the fact that they can get sex whenever they want may have created a situation where, in fact, they're unable to have sex. According to surveys, young women are now as likely as young men to have sex and by countless reports are also as likely to initiate sex, taking away from males the age-old, erotic power of the chase.

"I know lots of girls for whom nothing is off limits," says Helen Czapary, a junior at the University of Maryland. "The pressure on the guys is a huge deal."

Combine performance anxiety with binge drinking and the abuse of drugs on campus and it's no wonder that problems are showing up at college clinics in numbers that give the lie to the adage that impotence is reserved for the old (Bob Dole) or crazy (Jack Nicholson in "Carnal Knowledge"). The younger models who now appear in commercials for Viagra and its pharmaceutical clones reveal that the drug makers know (hope?) what the rest of us don't: Some members of the Game Boy generation are losing their game.
Weird. I am suspicious that this story was planted by Viagra sellers.

George writes:
Why do you doubt this? Girls are just discovering what everyone thought was obvious 50 years ago -- that girls cannot chase boys in the same way that boys chase girls.
The article says that "ED" is the politically correct term.
