Slut Shaming

Slut-Shaming is an unfortunate phenomenon that is when a person mocks or degrades a women because she participates in what is not considered “acceptable” or “normal” sexual activity for a female.  Slut-Shaming is a term that is most used in regards to women and not men.

The Double Standard 
If a man walked into a room of his peers and talked about his last night with a women he would be praised and admired.  While if a women walked into a room and said the same story as the man the chances of her being admired and praised are very low.  In Toronto a police officer told two girls that they could avoid sexual assault from not dressing slutty.  Which prompted the Slutwalk in protest.  Has anyone ever told a guy to not dress slutty? Has a guy ever been giving a second look for wearing a toga on Halloween?

Slut Shaming Needs to Stop
When I was in High School I heard the term slut, whore, and thot multiple times during the day.  The only way for slut shaming can stop is for people to be educated on what those words really mean and what It feels like to be called one of them.  Slut shaming is immature and it’s sad to what it has become today.  Bette Midler is a 68 year old women who called Ariana Grande who is 21 a whore.  Slut Shaming needs to stop because I really hope that when I’m 68 the word whore is not in my daily vocabulary.
