It’s the saga of the Date Gone Really, Really Bad, and it just won’t die. No doubt you’ve heard about “Grace,” the not-so-sweet young thing who went out with actor Aziz Ansari and found him to be, let’s say, less than the gentleman she expected.

But what did she think would happen when she shucked off all her clothes and performed oral sex on him? Discussion of poetry?

Still, somehow “Grace” doesn’t seem to comprehend this. So she reported her story to a website called Babe.net. The result was pure revenge porn.

However, other wiser women weren’t about to applaud Grace’s #MeToo moment. One of them was HLN’s Ashleigh Banfield, who blasted Grace’s whining on-air.

Banfield was harsh, but correct:

“So what exactly is your beef? That you had a bad date with Aziz Ansari? Is that what victimized you to the point of seeking a public conviction? And a career-ending sentence against him? Is that truly what you thought he deserved for your night out?. . . . But if you just had an unpleasant sexual experience, you should have gone home.”

So how did Babe.net react? About what you’d expect from a website run by 20-something feministas. Here’s how Katie Way, the reporter who broke the story, responded to Banfield:

The way your colleague Ashleigh (?), someone I’m certain no one under the age of 45 has ever heard of, by the way, ripped into my source directly was one of the lowest, most despicable things I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Shame on her. . . . . she targeted a 23-year-old woman in one of the most vulnerable moments of her life, someone she’s never f—ing met before, for a little attention. I hope the ratings were worth it! I hope the ~500 RTs on the single news write-up made that burgundy lipstick bad highlights second-wave feminist has-been feel really relevant for a little while. She DISGUSTS me, and I hope when she has more distance from the moment she has enough of a conscience left to feel remotely ashamed — doubt it, but still.

Wow. That’s. . . mature.

And that wasn’t all. One of the reigning Queens of Crass, Samantha Bee (who shares that title with Chelsea Handler), also lit into Banfield on her program “Full Frontal.” Her diatribe was a seven-minute word salad which lacked any cohesive logic whatsoever. But fear not — I have cued up her Ashleigh Banfield rant, so you don’t have to sit through the preceding four minutes of gibberish.

Seriously? Men need to “f*ck like a feminist?” What in the world does that even mean? Wear a pink pussy hat to bed or something?

I don’t wanna know.

But don’t you think it’s about time that we as women declare that the much-ballyhooed Sexual Revolution hasn’t worked out well for us?

Some of us remember how it coincided with the rise of feminism in the 1970’s. It was a perfect storm, and fortunately not all of us were swept up in it. But too many young women, armed with The Pill, the Hite Reportand attainable abortion (just in case), could, well, screw just as much as men. No need for marriage or commitment. “I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman!” they sang.

And young men everywhere said, “Yeah, baby!”

So how’s that all working out? What have over forty years of easy sex done for women?

For one thing, it doesn’t seem like “hook ups” are making women happy. No matter what libertine claptrap feminists have been preaching for decades now, the truth is that women don’t seem to like hook ups. Instead, they long to be cherished and protected by men whom they choose to love. After all, it’s hard-baked into their psyche, whether or not Samantha Bee or “Grace” want to admit it. These women want “Some Enchanted Evening,” or even just “I Wanna Hold Your Hand.” And they definitely want “R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”

They most certainly don’t want “wham, bam, thank you ma’am.” Yet this is what radical feminism and the Sexual Revolution have wrought. I’m past all that now, but I worry about the future, especially for my little granddaughter and other girls. Will they become strong and intelligent women who rise up and say, “Enough!”?

As Mona Charen wrote, “Perhaps the new feminist slogan should be ‘Down with the sexual revolution!’” Amen, sister.
