Slut Shaming Women — 6 Comments

  1. The systemic misogyny in the USA never ceases to amaze me, not that Canada is much better. How can we have the audacity to point out the failings of the Taliban when we fail so miserably at being fair and equitable? Mainstream culture is pretty much contaminated with a male-centric bias and after making some progress, feminism is on the defensive again. Sigh.

  2. I had a friend in high school that was teeny weeny, but had huge breasts. She wore very typical tops for the time, typically a size bigger then her actual size, just so the top would cover her properly. Needless to say, even the next size up was a little tighter in certain areas, and this did not go unnoticed by the other girls in my class.
    This girls was funny, warm, and generous and all I would ever hear down the gossip mill was what a slut she was. Really? This came from girls who were much more promiscuous, but because the exact same shirt didn’t fit them as snugly, my friend was a slut. What is she supposed to do, wear a mumu?

    Somewhere along the line big breasts became a sign of sluttiness, tight clothing as well. A woman’s words, mind, and personality no longer valid. I agree with you about it being a shame that Palin is skewered for her clothes. Groomed or poorly groomed, it is her politics that should take center stage. Just as the color of a man’s skin does not a President make. I am proud of Obama breaking down the white wall of the white house, but I am ready for an election where color, sexual orientation, religious choice,and gender are no longer relevant.

  3. Palin ,wasnt ” groomed ” to be a politician . she comes from a working class back round . her dad was a teacher. to my knowledge she never lived in a ” trailer ” to make fun of her dialect and looks is hypocritical , childish, and disturbing . she fought AGAINST her own party and corruption to advance from a city mayor to governor . as governor her state enjoyed a surplus , something obama and the great spenders can learn from . her quotes have been twisted into lies that are believed ( she never said she can see russia from her front porch , it was a saturday nite live spoof ) . its no wonder average people wont run for office when you get this media then abiding citizenry to do this hatchet work on an average american mother . i guess people want what they say they dont . typical Rich , groomed , corrupt politicians , rather than someone who
    sets out to make the country a better place .

  4. great post Diana , at least you have some class and explain your differences rather than slander and insult with Alinski tactics
