Thou Shalt Not Slut Shame

By Valerie Rice | November 13, 2020

What a theory. Now, I am sure someone is demanding that I explain myself. And, as always, I am more than happy to do so. Slut shaming is stigmatizing women for behaving in a sexual or promiscuous manner. Alright, I bet half of you are wondering what is wrong with that. Women shouldn’t do that, right? Okay. Fine. So ask yourselves this: Why? Seriously, why? And write your answers down so they can look back at you. If your answers have anything to do with the behavior of others or your own morality, we have a problem. Allow me to set forth my argument.

WOMEN ARE NOT YOUR CHILDREN

This may come as quite a shock to you, but women are free and independent agents unto themselves. Yeah. I know, it is hard to believe. Hey, White women have been people for almost 100 years, legally, and the other races and nationalities are kinda acknowledged too! That sound a bit snarky? It IS. Because women have been oppressed for centuries, treated as children and property and worse. We do not have equal rights or pay as we speak. Not only that, but expectations on women’s behavior continues to this freaking day, and we are sick of it. Literally, sick. We get shafted in medical care and die in childbirth, especially in the US, and our mental health is seriously suffering. Don’t believe me? Check this out. And yet, we do NOT get to give our voices to guide policy for women’s health care. Seriously, it is a huge panel of old white man who can’t tell a labia from a label and probably think ectopic pregnancies can be properly implanted (they can’t, and if not terminated can kill you, FYI), so why do they treat women like ignorant children? Because they always have and they can.

WATCH YOUR DAMN LANGUAGE!

We are not “girls,” we are women. As in, grown ass adults who can kick your teeth in while comforting a toddler, making dinner, and finishing yet another presentation someone else didn’t want to do but it needs to b done by tomorrow morning and why not give it to Linda, she doesn’t have anything else going on, she’s just a woman, and that f*king zoom meeting on the phone? They won’t see your death, we got this. Plus we can get that stain outta the carpet, no worries. It’s the power or hydrogen peroxide and patience. With a smile. So knock it off, Frank, my garden thrives on the rotting flesh of assholes like you. But in all seriousness, women are seriously overburdened, taken for granted, and referred to as “girls.” Girls are children. We discussed this. Show some respect. And do your share. There is such a thing as caregiver burnout, or just burnout in general, and nobody can last forever.

ALL HUMANS HAVE SEX

Yeah, we do. Especially you over there. Men love it, women do too. Something about women expressing this makes people gasp and clutch their pearls though. Which I find hilarious because everyone loves babies. Well, where do you think they come from? What? Women are asexual creatures who only spread for reprodductive purposes? Grow up. This is 2020, and reality needs to be a thing. For real. Do you seriously want to pass on this bull to the next generation? I hate lies. I despise delusion. I hate it so much I refused to teach my children about Santa and we do not utter religious dogma in my home. Pics or it didn’t happen. MY kids were fed a diet of skepticism and scientific evidence, with a daily dose of logic. They are not ruined, amoral , or evil. They are loving, empathetic, and rational human beings who happen to see through smoke screens. Yes, some have developmental disabilities, but they navigate. And they know about sex, pleasure, masturbation, LGBTQIA issues, birth control, abortion, and most importantly, CONSENT. Are they sexually active? Two are, and responsibly so. I’m proud of them.

WE ARE NOT GENITALS

A woman is more than her genitalia or sex characteristics. I am talking about my trans sisters. Your roads may be harder to walk than mine, honestly. You are ridiculed for your transition, your clothes, your voice, your authenticity, you name it. Well, I love you. Seriously. I don’t have to know you. I love each and every one of you and welcome you to the ranks of womanhood. It sucks, but we are in it together. I got your back. Being a woman is not a choice, it just is. There is enough scientific evidence to validate this that any moron who tries to invalidate the transgender community is seriously just trying to pick a fight. So draw your sword, asshole, I challenge you.

THE END…FOR NOW

Alright, That’s a lot. I’m stopping. You get the point. I hope. I actually have an entire arsenal curled around my tongue but I will hold for now. So, until next time, be well!
