Last night, I turned my phone off and went to bed early. I haven’t done that in quiet a while and should more.

Anonymous: Whats so bad about "slut shaming" honestly?

oliviaandrews:

I’ll break it down for ya.

Point a) slut shaming and victim blaming go hand in hand. You calling a girl a slut or a whore or whatever just makes it seem okay when a girl is raped or sexually assaulted for it to be blown off as nothing. “Well how much did she drink?” “Well what was she wearing?” “Did she lead that person on?” Guess what, none of those things matter. None of ‘em. Someone being raped or sexually assaulted is no one’s fault expect for the piece of shit who thought it was okay to put their hands on them without their consent.  

If you don’t care about any of that, think about this

Point b) as sad as it is, you more than likely know someone who has been raped or sexually assaulted. You slut shaming just shows them that you can’t be trusted. And you may be thinking “but if it happened to someone I know it would be different.” Take a second to ask yourself why it’d be different. What makes it happening to someone you know any different?

Point c) honestly, people can sleep with whoever they want and its really no one’s business. As long as its consensual and isn’t hurting anyone then who fucking cares.

If that doesn’t make you think, then I don’t know what to tell you. I guess you’ll never get it and that is really fucking sad.
