12/13/12 Laci Green -Slut shamming is used by patriarchy to punish women who go against the social norm that has been prescribed to women. Slut shamming is a part of patriarchy used to sham women for acting in a way that isn't allowed by patriarchy. When a women takes charge of her sexuality, she is punished socially for being a slut. Without feminism, women would always be the blame in rape cases. Without feminism, women would have no sexual rights or freedoms.
"While this won’t apply to everyone who enjoys wearing lots of makeup or who tans, I find that, for some people, they are already feeling the pressure of standards they cannot live up to. Makeup and tanning are a way of compensating. So, if we turn around then and call this woman a whore or a fake bitch (or whatever our insult of choice might be), we continue the process of victimizing her and degrading her body. We become a part of that vicious cycle..." -Laci Green #feminism
