Leftist commentary from a mouthy bitch
If it doesn’t work for you, fine.
If you think the only reason ANY WOMAN gets called a slut, regardless of race or social standing, is because she has done something to deserve it. Fuck you.
The word slut is used to shame and silence women, and a myriad of reasons are given for that shaming and silencing, including race, ethnicity (black women are more sexual, Russian girls are easy, all want a marriage visa, etc…), dressing provocatively or not dressing provocatively, flirting, not flirting, your body shape or lack thereof (big boobs, “fat girls are desperate and easy ,” etc…).
SLUT IS A MEANINGLESS WORD!!!! It has no definition. NONE. It means nothing outside of its utility as an agent of oppression of ALL WOMEN. If you think that any woman, again, regardless of race, class, ethnicity or anything, escapes that word, you’re wrong. No one escapes it. Not when someone decides that’s what you are, completely and utterly independent of reality.
We are all sluts, and none of us are sluts.
Very few of the feminists I know are ecstatic with the mainstream media’s coverage of this, because they (the Mainstream Media) are focusing on the cute, white, thin, mostly blonde girls in scanty outfits, instead of all the older, racially diverse, fat to skinny women and men marching in t-shirts, jeans, jogging clothes, the clothes some of them were raped in. This is not the fault of the Slutwalk, this is the fault of the Mainstream Media.
It is also the fault of the Mainstream Media that the message of the Slutwalks is getting lost and perverted. Women are not marching for the right to be sluts. Women are marching for the right to have their rapes taken seriously by the police. So that when they report a rape they don’t have to endure a million questions about whether they’d been drinking, what were they wearing, what kind of underwear did they have on, are they sure they want to ruin this nice young man’s life over a “misunderstanding?”
Over on MSNBC, who you would think would know better, they had the headline “Slutwalks put provocative message on the streets.” Really? The message that no woman deserves to be raped, and if she is raped, deserves to be taken seriously by the police is a “Provocative message?” Really?
For some people, I guess it is.
