Being A Slut Isn't A Bad Thing

Why do we slut-shame?

Being A Slut Isn't A Bad Thing
Giphy

According to Google, a slut is "a woman who has many casual sexual partners."

The denotation above does not state that being a slut is shameful, yet a negative connotation of the word has been ingrained in us for centuries. In today's society, especially, the word slut is used in a malicious way. "Sluts" are generally looked down upon and put to shame. We use the word "slut" to insult women because apparently, being a woman who sleeps around is controversial and morally wrong.

The number of people a woman sleeps with should not define her or give her a bad reputation. Slut-shaming should not be acceptable because being a slut is not a negative thing.

Even worse than slut-shaming is assuming someone is promiscuous due to their fashion choices. Unfortunately, we often associate the way someone dresses with whether they are a "slutty" or not. As a whole, we feel entitled to label women as sluts solely on the way they dress, and that is unfair. Women should feel free to dress according to their tastes without being judged. It is ridiculous that it is only deemed acceptable to dress like a "slut" on Halloween. For starters, exposing skin or wearing tight garments does not entail that one is dressed to be promiscuous. Secondly, nobody has the right to judge someone else so superficially.

The number of people a woman sleeps with should not define her or give her a bad reputation. Slut-shaming should not be acceptable because being a slut is not a negative thing.

Being a slut is not a bad thing, but since it is perceived as a bad thing, women are often offended when referred to as a slut. We need to change the way we perceive sluts because it is demeaning to all women. The way women dress should not bring rise to assumptions about how many sexual partners they may have had or currently have. Women should also not be criticized for the number of partners they choose to have. All in all, slut shaming must be brought to an end.

Sluts are just women, like all other women, who just happen to have multiple sexual partners. Women who dress on the more liberal side may or may not be sluts, so let us refrain from making assumptions. Together, we can make a change, and make it socially acceptable to be a slut and to dress freely without being deemed a "slut" in relation to today's connotation.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
