G’head, don’t be shy………Shed your ‘gender stereotypes’, girls…after all …….your’e just like men.
Women, since the dawn of time, have been ascribed with derogatory terms for certain se-xual behaviors, and even ways of dressing.
W-h-ore, s-lut, sk-ank, bi-tch, “easy”, har-lot, fallen woman, ho-o-ker, str-umpet, tr-amp, fl-oozy, hu-ssy, loo-se woman…….and on and on ad nauseum.
A girl or woman who engages in s-exual activity with more than one, or many partners is, of course…a sl-ut.
What is a boy or man who engages in s-exual activity with more than one, or many partners called?
When one wants to defame or hurt a woman, the first label she receives is a se-xual put-down.
But, what is a pro-stitute or wh-ore in reality?
They are girls and women defined and judged exclusively through their se-xual behavoir. They are condescended to in the harshest manner as being immoral, corrupt, degenerate and depraved.
Male immorality or debauchery is excused as being “natural” and almost uncontrollable, once a man is “teased” or aroused.
And since men are ruled by their hormones, they can never be responsible for their “acting out”, infidelities, or shameless behavior, right?
Hence, the woman he cheated with is the “home wrecker”. The young girl at work who tempted him is the one the wife goes ‘gunning for’. Her fellow woman becomes her own enemy.
The new pseudo “empowerment” of women, which supposedly grants her rights to se-xual autonomy, by shedding all female modesty, encouraging promiscuity and assertiveness, proves to be unnatural, unfulfilling and ultimately do women more harm than many of the restrictions she suffered prior to ‘liberation.’
Men tend to be rational, active creatures, not nearly as emotional as their female counterparts. But women, striving to prove they “are just like men”, deny their emotional needs and falsify their true selves when they pretend that one night stands are “really” what they want, and that po-rn-ography is great for their love relationships.
The truth is that women want love, respect, and yes- commitment,-just as they always have, but are petrifried to admit it.
There is nothing more misogynistic than the lie that women dressing in a hyper-se-xualized way is somehow affirming and “empowering.”
Displaying oneself as a se-xual commodity……….is the antithesis of female humanity and grace.
Although men are perfectly capable of controlling their physiology and s-exual functions, oftentimes, they perceive women in provocative clothing as offering an invitation or availabilty. (Why else is she exposing her br-easts or legs?) It creates confusion at best, and anger, hostility, and even rage, when the male is rebuffed and scolded “for looking”, at worst.
Woman, by her very nature, has always taken the moral high ground, and (whether society admits it or not), usually drags her unsuspecting boyfriend or husband along for the ride.
When women abdicate that role, and deny their own womanhood, men too, get the message, that yes, women do exist solely for the purpose of se-xually entertaining and servicing men. (Why else would she strut around in red, 6 inch stilettoes, with her cle-avage in his face?)
The only purpose of a skin tight, low cut, form fitting dress is to be se-xually provcative.
There is nothing natural or comfortable about it.
But at least, let us be honest about the wearer’s intentions shall we.
Hundreds of years after women were forcibly bound into corsets, they now willingly stick their feet into shoes that an acrobat would have difficulty maintaining balance in.
As tragic as it is, women will always be judged and vulnerable, as a result, –by their se-xual attractiveness and identity.
Women, are trained to live for the exterior. For the male glances. How many heads did she turn?
Diet, excercise and plastic surgery are the main topics in nearly every womens’ magazine on the shelves throughout the free world.
Women now imprison themselves by their own willing objectification.
Supposedly “liberated” girls and women who are intellectually or musically gifted, who are supreme athletes, are still objectified. They play tennis in what almost looks like their underwear and and pose as “models” wearing skimpy clothes for magazine covers. Despite their intellect. Despite their talent.
Clearly, for a girl……….talent is not enough.
She’s soooooooooo hot.
Being called “hot” is simply a demeaning, expolitative way of saying “someone I would want to have s-ex with.”
Teachers are rated by students.
No one thinks twice about calling even their doctor or nurse “hot.”
Judging people , and women in particular, by their se-xual appeal,- has become so the norm and has saturated our culture so much that instead of being insulted or at least taken aback, women are flattered when a student calls them “hot.”
Encouraging our society to want dancers to be “hot”, a.k.a -”se-xy” and musicians and athletes to be “hot” and even their brain surgeons to be “hot” is manipulative, and even warped. The se-xiness of your doctor is none of your concern. It is inapproriate at best, and perverse at worst.
It is time to take a long, hard look and re-think our social attitudes, and se-xual mores.
And no, I don’t want some kid telling me this article was “hot.”
