Rant Time: Again With the ‘Slut’ Shaming?

Hello, Angels

Today, I went out of my house, which is a rare thing for me to do on weekends at the moment after the whole ‘incident’ which happened almost a month ago now. But I did, and I was also in town yesterday with Gege the ALMOST black belt as my bodyguard. But today, I heard some things as I walked around and did my shopping. One of them being something which disturbed me and made me feel violently sick:

‘She was dressed in such short shorts, she was asking for it, frigid slut.’

Did the group of people tell the male creature to shut the hell up before one of them punched him in the face with a brick? No, not at all. They all sat and laughed and joined in, making comments about this girl. The girl was not with them (cowards) but whoever she is, my heart goes out to you, because from the sounds of it, you need a little love and DECENCY at the moment.

Now, I am doing both English Lit and Language as A-Levels, so I’m going to tear this sentence apart right now, and put it in such simplistic turns that even those moronic little animals could understand it:

First of all, let’s start with the most oxymoronic things I have ever heard: a ‘frigid slut’. Frigid is a word technically used for somebody who isn’t going to do sexual things, feels uncomfortable doing things, or also used as an insult by fuckboys when a girl turns them down because, let’s be honest now, the girl would often need a microscope, and I will say no more. A ‘slut’ is known as somebody who sleeps around with various people, and never is in a relationship with any of them, can often flirt with a group of people all at once, and basically gets around, but in some cases, it is used for when a girl is forced into doing something and some people are so dim they’re going to ignore that and play the victim themselves (no, I am not at all bitter). So to call somebody a frigid slut is without a doubt in the top ten most pointlessly stupid things I have ever heard in my sixteen years, so congratulations good sir, keep your hands down your trousers because one day you may find something.

Secondly, I have said this a thousand times, but what a girl or boy wears has nothing to do with if they consent to an act happening to them. When they say ‘Yes, you can *insert act here*’, you can then go ahead. No matter how short a girls shorts were, it does not mean that she is okay with being felt up, groped and started at by every Tom, DICK and Harry. No matter how tight or short her shorts are, and no matter how good that booty is, unless she does NOT tear your hands away or off as soon as you attempt to go there, or does NOT say the words ‘Get your hands off my arse’, you have no right to touch her.

Finally, why on earth are fuck minded individuals supporting this? From what was later said, luckily somebody appeared and tore the handsy imbicile a new one, and she was okay, thank God. But what was said about this man was also completely narrow minded and disgusted me further:

‘The guy who came was probably was just jealous, gay bastard’

No. Nope. Nopey popey. Nonononononono. A person looking out for and standing up for somebody who is in a position of harassment or assault should not be put down. No actual man would stand by and let a woman or a man be sexually harassed, and no woman would allow it either. If somebody looks uncomfortable in a situation like that, you go and save them: pretend to be a friend, a sibling, a cousin, and get them the hell out of that situation. The amount of times a friend has pretended to be my lesbian lover or a brother to et me out of that is countless, and I would and will do the exact same. That man would have more balls than people saying such vile things ever will. Plus, gay is not an insult and if you use it as one, grow the hell up; in some societies, people still get killed for being homosexual, so using it as an insult is really bloody disrespectful, shut the hell up.

I just felt like it needed to be said. And I will happily rant to my little hearts content about this if necessary: slut shaming needs to stop; it is down to a person who they sleep with, and as long as they are safe and happy, who gives anybody the right what to do with their bodies? Second of all, nobody is a ‘slut’ for wearing clothes that may be short or revealing, stop being so narrow minded and either jealous that you could never get them (or you lost them) or that you don’t have the confidence in yourself to wear what the person in question is/does. Third of all, if you see a situation, you save that person, don’t be an arse or watch it happen or ignore it. Finally, being gay and the word gay is not a bloody insult, so stop bloody using it as one.

Stay safe and stay happy, Angels ❤
