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.

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

I AM NOT A COSTUME

I AM NOT A COSTUME

so, as most of you have probably realised, it’s halloween.

this is my absolute favourite time of year. i enjoy it more than christmas, new years, easter, what have you. 

for me, it’s a time to become something you aren’t; undertake another persona, personality, character, etc and have fun with it! you can zombify, mumify your costume to make it spooky or you can dress up as sexu as you feel.

but be careful about your audience. this article is nice food for thought. make conscious, critical, well-thought out decisions.
