Slut Stigma

What is Slut Stigma?

With the most regretful of regrets I must inform you dear reader that I have yet to have sex at university.

It’s not like I haven’t had any action; I must have got with over twenty people, leading to many embarrassing incidents and awkward moments in the lift. This problem seems to be positively correlated with getting with people I live with. Don’t snog the hand that feeds you?

Snogging aside, I’m having a fantastic time at university. I have met some amazing people and quickly established a name for myself amongst my new group of friends. Luckily they haven’t judged me the way I have been judged in the past. The differing viewpoints of people here has led my mind astray; to a question, a query, a curiosity. What does one have to actually do to be labelled a ‘slut’, or ‘slag’ or ’whore’ or any other name this is frequently slapped on to a woman who feels no remorse about expressing her sexuality? slut pop 300x210 Slut Stigma

The Dictionary Meaning of Slut Stigma

Urban Dictionary told me this:

“‘Slut’ – a woman with the morals of a man.”

WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL?!

Personally I think women should have free range the same way men do, without being called something as awful as ‘slut’. If you can’t deal with a woman having slept with someone she’s not in a relationship with or getting with 20 people in two weeks; get over it and WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY!

Women shouldn’t be off calling each other all the horrible things without due course. And what even constitutes a slut? I would class myself as a serial snogger; am I slut? My friend slept with someone the same night she met them, is she a slut? Is it the quantity or quality of sexual encounters that create such labels? I snog 20 guys in two weeks, but don’t sleep with them. My friend slept with 2 guys in those same two weeks. Who’s worse?

Then again, I do understand the bunny boiler/boyfriend stealer side of this argument. If some girl tries to get on your boyfriend, knowing that he’s taken; fair enough, bit of a slut.

I think that we should embrace the whole Girl Power moment the way the Spice Girls wanted us to. If guys can get away with it then why shouldn’t we? I’m going to go get with another 20 guys just to prove a point. But maybe not my next door neighbours this time..
