Listen, here at Gurl we’re 100 percent against slut shaming. We hate the word slut, we never call anyone on the site a slut, and frankly, we get grossed out when we see other people do just that. Why? It’s a gendered word that simply shames women for daring to be sexual in any way, shape, or form. If someone wants to have sex, let them have sex. OMG, let them live. As long as they’re not hurting anyone or themselves, it ain’t anybody’s business. Also, the word is unfairly placed on women who are victims of sexual assault (the “asking for it” mentality) and anyone who dares to revealing clothing or even leggings. People just love calling women sluts, and that’s just disgusting.
You don’t even want us to get into how much of a double standard accompanies the term slut. Men’s sexuality is lauded while women’s is mocked. WTF?
Unfortunately, the rest of the universe hasn’t quite caught up with the fact that slut is a nasty word. Fortunately, this has led to these aforementioned people to ask really stupid questions about being slutty and we’re going to call them out. So check out these 10 Yahoo Answers questions about sluts that will make you lose faith in humanity, but hopefully our snark will restore it.
