SLUTS HAVE MORE FUN!
SLUT: A PERSON OF ANY GENDER WHO ENJOYS FREQUENT CONSENSUAL SEX, ESPECIALLY WITH MULTIPLE PARTNERS.

IT’S PRETTY SAFE TO SAY THAT EVERY WOMAN WILL BE CALLED A SLUT AT LEAST ONCE IN HER LIFETIME. WHILE THE SEXUAL DOUBLE STANDARD IS SLOWLY BEGINNING TO SHIFT, WE'RE STILL A CULTURE WITH A MASSIVE SLUT-SHAMING PROBLEM. IT’S STILL TABOO TO BE A GIRL WHO SLEEPS AROUND. WE STILL FEED GIRLS THE OUTDATED, DESTRUCTIVE IDEA THAT, BY HAVING SEX, MEN ARE GETTING SOMETHING, WHEREAS WOMEN ARE GIVING UP SOMETHING. GUYS HAVE SEX FOR FUN, BUT IF YOU’RE A GIRL WITH A HIGH SEX DRIVE, YOU MUST HAVE “ISSUES”—YOUR DESIRE MUST COME FROM YOUR LOW SELF-ESTEEM, DEPRESSION, OR BECAUSE YOU’RE “UGLY” AND CAN’T GET A BOYFRIEND OR WHATEVER.

MY ADVICE IS: DON’T BELIEVE THIS MISOGYNIST, SEX-NEGATIVE BULLSHIT FOR A SECOND! REMEMBER THAT, AS LONG AS YOU’RE NOT HURTING ANYONE, THEN YOU CAN HAVE WHATEVER TYPE OF SEX LIFE YOU WANT. SLUTS HAVE MORE FUN, AND THEY CERTAINLY HAVE BETTER STORIES. SO IF/WHEN SOMEONE CALLS YOU A SLUT, TAKE IT AS A COMPLIMENT. AND REMEMBER THAT IT’S POSSIBLE TO HIJACK A WORD THAT IS INTENDED TO HURT YOU, AND REAPPROPRIATE IT AS AN INSTRUMENT OF POWER AND IRREVERENCE.
