“We have to listen to people. Folks want to believe that genitals and biology are like destiny! All these designations are based on a penis, however many inches that is, and then a vagina. And that’s supposed to say all these different things about who people are. When you think about it, it’s kind of ridiculous. People need to be willing to let go of what they think they know about what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman. Because that doesn’t necessarily mean anything inherently. Folks are just really uncomfortable with that sense of uncertainty, or that shift.”

Alright. So as a sexually active woman, one of the most annoying things in the world is slut shaming. In case you’re not sure on what slut shaming is, it’s bullying a female for sleeping with “too many” people. One of the most annoying parts of slut shaming is that it’s a double standard. A man…
One thing that really bothers me too is that just as often, women are the one’s criticizing other women’s sexual habits. How often does one of your girl friend’s talk about another girl like, omg she’s such a slut. That whore ran off with my boyfriend.
Um, sorry to say, but if your boyfriend left you for another girl, it’s of his own free will, and it’s a two way street. They are both at fault, but it’s usually the girls’ sexuality that is insulted.
It’s really a way to maintain a system of oppression, when the oppressed are doing the oppressing.
It’s why all those stereotypes like “girls are catty” and “backstabbing” are hurtful, and why lot’s of girls try to distance themselves from femininity. “I’m not like other girls… I’m different.”
We need to be united! Girl power FTW

When you send a girl home from school because her shorts or too short, or her clothing is immodest, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction-free learning environment is more important than her education. In a way, you’re telling her that the boys are more entitled to an education than she is, and that isn’t acceptable.
