I read this post by Taylor from Restless Youth, where she talks about slut-shaming and people judging others because they're dressed in what their opinion isn't 'conservative'. I totally suggest you read it because it's well-written in my opinion and gets to the point without blaaabbbbing on like I have a tendency of doing. I ended up writing a really long comment and felt like I should just copy and paste it because I am a lazy butt. Here ya go (true story that happened at my school):
"I completely agree. You know, something happened a few days ago in my English class that I'm going to talk about in my next blog post, but I'll just tell you in this comment because I think this post IS wonderfully written accompanied by a WONDERFUL outfit. Okay, so my teacher assigned us to create our own nine levels of hell, based on what we think is a reason. Some examples: Betrayers, pedophiles, murderers, and so on. One group, made of two girls and one boy, had one powerpoint slide titled 'loose girls'. Immediatley, I became frustrated (to myself of course). As I was waiting for them to justify their title, I read the slide and began to feel my eyes swell up. Their description of the sinner was as follows: Girls who wear short shorts, girls who sleep with boys too soon (what really is 'too' soon?), girls who basically feel SO confident and empowered in themselves and their sexuality basically was what they were describing. My sadness turned into anger. I couldn't believe my eyes, especially since it was TWO girls, and one boy in this group. Obviously, I would still be angry as hell if it was three boys, because I'd obviously come to the conclusion of "oh, it's just stupid misogynist boys who won't learn what the hell equality is until they're 30, if even then, or EVER." Basically, I couldn't believe that teenage girls who had access to the internet, were the definition of anti-feminist and were proud of it. They were proud of waiting a year of dating this boy to have sex because that meant they weren't "sluts" which equals stupid, apparently."
