Shameless Slut: we are stronger then misogyny

Social media has been a platform for voicing opinions. In a great way, this has lead to the expansion of ideas. Girls now can actively discuss feminism on forums in order to gain a wider audience with both guys and girls. Many guys today, still, shy away from the idea of feminism. They deem it almost as a ‘girls only club’ with twisted views of a feminist being a lesbian man hater. These are untrue biases that are not at the true core of feminism. Feminism is for everyone. It’s even more imperative that we have guys join our cause because in a lot of ways they still have the voice of influence.

There’s room for everyone in the cause.

But still, when girls are arguing their points through the World Wide Web, and their points are valid, a guy’s normal retort is to call the girl a slut. When he does this, it’s the equivalent to when he has no valid response he just calls a girl crazy in order to invalidate any of her feelings or words. The word slut itself was created by men as a way to keep women from being confident in her sexuality. But we are stronger than misogyny.

So we are here, calling all shameless sluts to join in. Girls should be allowed to do whatever they want with their bodies because it is their body. Slut shaming is an ill concept created to pigeonhole girls into feeling embarrassed if she likes sex or is unafraid to wear what she wants to wear because it makes her feel powerful and confident. Anybody who thinks otherwise is just trying to bully girls into being submissive and stay true to the standards that men create for them.

But if we educate enough people about what the true core of feminism stands for to protect both sexes. Too many times have guys been subjected to what is called ‘reverse sexism’ in which girls use societies rules in their favor. One example of this is how it’s socially acceptable for a girl to express her emotions and to cry, but if a guy tries to it is deemed weak. If a guy hits a girl, people will intervene in order to protect her, but if a girl is hitting a guy, people will just ignore it because it’s not seen as a threat. These are social structures that have been in place for many centuries and it leaves guys feeling isolated and trapped. So when I say feminism is for everyone, it really is about equality for both sexes. So, guys we need you! We need your help to bring everyone into the fold and if we join forces then I believe that will be the fundamental catalyst for change.
