they are off the hook


Senior Member
What does the expression mean? Could you explain me?
"With all the feminist vibes in the air, guys think they are off the hook when it comes to traditional conventions and old-school dating. But being a feminist doesn’t mean skimming off the romanticism. I still want to be cuddled and big-spooned into strong, masculine arms, and I should be able to say I want that without being accused of being passive/clingy/whatever."
