I can already hear you gasping.
There is, indeed, one simple solution to end "slut-shaming" once, and for all.
I know what you're thinking:
"There's no way slut shamers are going to tolerate all these slutty sluts slutting around being slutty! You can't possibly think sluts can be slutty without fear of being called a slut! Shame! Horror! Besides, what would you know, Kris? You're a MAN! You've never been slut shamed!"
Well, you're partly right. I've never been slut shamed. That's because the accepted term for a man with a healthy sexual appetite is "man-whore."
Let me paraphrase that, and repeat it for those of you not paying attention:
The ACCEPTED nomenclature for a man who enjoys sex is "man-whore."
Did you catch the key term there?
Perhaps I'm off my rocker, but I think a great first step would be to STOP REFERRING TO WOMEN WITH HEALTHY SEXUAL APPETITES AS "SLUTS."
I know this is a pipe dream. I know it isn't likely to happen.
How the hell else would you be able to stand in solidarity with your sisters, and back them up, while simultaneously denigrating them?
Here's a neat experiment:
Replace "slut" with any other derogatory term. Out loud. Add "shaming," and ask yourself if any of your friends to whom that term applies would appreciate you using it to back them up.
I don't know everything, but I'm reasonably sure my gay friends would wince if I backed them up by chastising someone for "fag-shaming."
Just a thought.
Don't like slut-shaming? Great. I'm on your side.
Now, stop calling women who enjoy sex "sluts."
