I'm so tired of the Slut Shame

I'm tired that if a woman wants BC, she's a slut
I'm tired that if a woman enjoys sex, she's a slut
I'm tired that if a woman has a baby and not married, she's a slut

Why is it that to talk about BC, it can only be about a medical condition, and not controlling births...that makes us a slut.

Why is it, you are not a good woman, if you don't want to have a bunch of children, or better yet, no kids at all...you want sex without consequences, you are a slut.

Why is it that we're are not suppose to speak about the fact that we, as women, we actually like sex, and want it...you are, my friend, most certainly a slut.

I'm fed up and sick of stick it up the as people saying that we are sluts. Your religion and morallity stops at my uterus...nothing more, nothing less.

Thanks for letting me rant.

2. Still haven't figured out why men

get a total pass. Not really in reality when they have children they aren't prepared for either, but does society have even one thing to say about them having children out of wedlock? Not, really.

10. I have been wondering that, too.

It takes two to tango. Those single mothers don't get pregnant by themselves. Although by the slut-shamers' standards, the Virgin May is a slut, too.

3. it goes beyond religion and morality.

and that is what we have to recognize. we are in a society today that men have free reign created all women as sluts, all the time. thru entertainment, comedy, internet, society as a whole.

when women become milf's, hit it, do it..... the woman is not a human being and she no more owns her sexuality in that scenario than she does with the right and the religious and moral. they all feed each other. when our men on the left choose to you descriptive's like pussy, cunt, bitch and they are the good guys helping us fight for our basic rights, it helps to create a safety net for people like limbaugh to go on his spew he did for three days. for whatever reason.... he felt that was just fine.

we cannot see that it is only about religion and morality, because it goes way beyond that.

4. +1.

As a guy, I have always found the denigration of women who like sex to be counter-productive. But I suppose it's really about control, not sex, anyway.

7. I am not a guy... :). But agree the Rush attitude seems more about control..

And domination of women, and their use as sex objects.

Rush felt free enough with his audience to ask for sex tapes.. "So that we can all watch" Which is so abhorrent that apparently he has removed those comments from the transcript.

I remember the glorious freedom that came with the development of BC pills...and I will never allow Rush Limbaugh to denigrate them in my mind.

And as one DU poster posted already..thank you to the men who understand.... Because it is freedom for both sexes.

I just don't look at it from the point of view of the male fossils/ Neanderthals (apologies to Neanderthals) who keep up any slut chant.... To hell with them.

As my dear deceased Dad used to say...."just be glad you're not married to one of them".

6. Hall Sparks has a great take on the pussy/balls thing

Balls being the most sensitive part on men, and yet saying someone has balls make them strong
The pussy can endure a lot of trauma, think child birth-that hurts , and it can bounce back like nothing happened. But to be called a pussy is weakness.
I think different. I'm a pussy because I'm strong, I bounce back, and I like to have fun
Suck on that all you sensitive balls

8. Do not despair at all, all american girl...

For years, I've dispensed BC pills in Ontario...and what has been happening for years now, is that Mothers will come in to pick up the 3 month supply for their daughters, especially if their daughters are in college etc, and the Mothers are paying for any charges for the BC pills for their daughters.

I feel it is like a silent bond between Mothers and daughters....the Mothers want the same protections for their daughters that they were able to use. (of course there is a lot more to safe sex than the BC pill...but I'm lucky here..that is taught in school here)

Essentially the slut stuff, while nasty, can be expected talk from some Rush mesmerized sheep.

Vuyoristically demanding a sex tape? So sickening..that the sponsors had to leave.
