I met a girl recently who is open about her sexuality and fun, which is not something I get to experience often on Guam. We stayed up all night talking and had a great time. In the morning, I was thinking about something she said, and I sort of laughed about it. She said:
“I’m a little whore so I get tested all the time. I’m super-paranoid.”
So first of all, you should all get tested before every new partner because being responsible is cool. I like that my new friend feels that way.
However, what I want to talk about is my amusement over what might make someone a “little whore.”
See, she didn’t give a number, and neither did I.
Obviously I call myself a “Magically Delicious Super Slut” because I think that slut-shaming is wrong, and that women should be allowed to be proud of being slutty in the same way that men are.
However, I just think it’s funny that neither of us gave a number. It was like “I am cool with you being a slut, but I don’t want to find out that you think 30 people is a lot when I have slept with 200.”
It just made me giggle that even among sluts, we still fear slut-shaming because of the world that we live in.
So let’s remember: Don’t slut-shame. Women should be allowed to be proud of being slutty little whores, because that is what equality is really all about.
