Just speaking my truth!!!

What is wrong with being a Slut?

I just finished reading a book where the female lead was fighting the stigma of being a slut. I couldn’t help feeling sorry for her as she lived in a small town filled with judgemental people and was only accepted when she eventually found a man who was prepared to take her on with her bad past.

Now I can hear you asking “What did she do to get that reputation?”

It is actually scary, but all she did was fall in love with her high school sweetheart and trust him with her virginity. They used a condom but obviously it didn’t work and she fell pregnant.

He left to go to college claiming she is lying and he wasn’t her only lover and she got the slut title.

Now we all know she could have had an abortion, or a DNA test to prove he was the father but would that change her status? No.

As women we are brought up to be repressed and stay good. Yes I know about the sexual revolution and all that, but you know as well as I do that women who go after what they want sexually, still have to worry about being labelled a slut.

So I want to say to every woman reading this. Be a slut if you want to. Be proud of your desires and go out there to get them filled, as and how you want.

Just stay safe and don’t hurt anyone.

As long as you follow those guidelines you should be proud of being an empowered woman. What is wrong with having sex? The man who turns you down because you have a past is not worthy of your wicked ass.

Go out there and embrace life, love and your sexuality.

You deserve to be happy.

    DI think it’s a power trip and a way for women to feel better about themselves at the expense of another woman. Because Sadly, women are the biggest perpetrators of the Slut label. Men don’t use it nearly as much. It’s a sexist bend, where men can do worse and be called a stud, something with a positive inference. We have to start teaching our daughters that they are not in competition with other women. That’s the message society and the media send them and they respond in spades.
    I teach Dani to respect herself, be confident in herself, love herself, and finally, help other women do the same. Sadly, most young ladies around here are taught the opposite through the sexualizing of them at such young ages, the bad behaviors of their mothers towards other women, etc. It’s an uphill battle… but I hope my daughter will be the best example of what we can become.

      I really believe we should start building each other up instead of breaking each other down! And your daughter rocks!
