slut-shaming

do you slut shame? then ask yourself these questions:

  1. who are you to police another person’s body?
  2. does that person’s actions directly affect you? (ie your health, well being.) N.B i don’t include happiness in this as this is something that is relative and completely your choice.
  3. who are you to reduce someone’s person (qualities, personality, etc) to a single word?
  4. do you think oppression is more socially acceptable than a person’s “rampant sex life”? (spoiler alert: it’s less.) ***
  5. do you believe in living in a patriarchy? (a system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line.) no? then quit encouraging misogyny. 
  6. what do you gain calling someone a slut? like really. honestly. do you gain happiness? money? fame? glory? self-satisfaction? chances are, the answer is no.

*** op·pres·sion
əˈpreSHən/

  1. The unjust use of power to enforce an unequal relationship and deny others rights or value.”
  2. Prolonged cruel or unjust treatment or control

Listen Up, Libertarians: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Slut-Shame

#SHOUTINGBACK

if you know someone who doesn’t believe sexism exists, show them this video & direct them to this twitter page.

as a survivor of abuse & sexism for 15 years, i believe it’s important to spread the word that sexism DOES exist; in both genders and that people should not be silenced.

i’m ecstatic and excited that someone is using social media to spread this message and give survivors the courage to have a voice. it shows great movement.

N.B: sexism isn’t a gender thing. it’s an ignorance thing and can happen to ANYONE.
sexual assault can also happen to anyone; regardless of age, race, gender, religious faith (including atheism)

i wouldn’t call myself a feminist, either, as this puts a pretty hat on male issues and places them on the back burner.
