Okay, So How Many Partners Makes Me A Slut?

The subjects of slut-shaming and double standards between genders when it comes to bedroom life are not new.

On Slut-Shaming

We have to stop equating chastity with self-respect.

Slut-shaming, as defined by Finally Feminism 101 is “the idea of shaming and/or attacking a woman or girl for being sexual, having one or more sexual partners, acknowledging sexual feelings, and/or acting on sexual feelings.”  It is damaging to young women everywhere when we tell them that these feelings and being sexual is a negative thing. 401 more words
