There Is A Reason Why You're Labeled A Slut

By

Let me start off by saying that I am not really a fan of the type of humor generated by people like Jenna Marbles, the infamous YouTube vlogger. I don't really agree with her opinions as to what she finds particularly funny, which is why it was so strange when I discovered that we shared a mutual understanding towards a specific cultural issue that is actually very close to my heart at this time in my life.

Today, I’m here to defend a video the vlogger has recently been getting a lot of flack for. A few weeks ago she posted a video titled “Things I Don’t Understand About Girls Part 2: Slut Edition”. She starts the video off by disclaiming that what follows is solely her own opinion and then proceeds to discuss her views concerning what is known as a modern day slut.

The Internet has been going nuts since the release. Feminists everywhere have been commenting on her video, absolutely flipping out that a female would dare call another female a slut, even if she’s had sex with a multitude of men in a rather short period of time. I mean, how dare us women call other women sluts?

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen a “Women calling other women sluts is wrong and old fashioned and you’re not accepting that times have changed and blah blah blah blah” bullshit rant before. I write for Elite Daily, and a number of my articles have received feminist backlash for my use of the word ‘slut’ or ‘bitch’ because I’m a woman and calling another girl a slut is apparently a mortal sin.

Well you know what, it’s not wrong to call women sluts, if they are in fact a slut. Why? Because there are actually people who deserve to be called sluts, as this word can still be used as an accurate and appropriate label for a woman or man who has willingly earned such remarkable status.

You can’t get offended if someone calls you out on the very nature of your behavior. Let's say I called someone a female. Oh my god, I called you a female even though you possess the genitalia which defines you as a female. Despicable.

In my months here at Elite Daily, I’ve come to realize that the only people who get offended by stuff written on the internet to the point in which they are compelled to tell us how displeased or offended they are by one of our articles (I promise you, we read and laugh at them all), are the ones who are representations of whatever social commentary the article is based off of.

I mean, I'd understand if a female were to get upset or offended if they were called a slut and did not partake in any excess sexual activity with men. But when the number of men you’ve slept with exceeds the amount of books you’ve read in your lifetime, you need to sit down and think about how much you care about how others perceive you and their ability to take you seriously.

No, I don’t care that it’s almost 2013 and there should be equality amongst genders and whatever other progressive feminine bullshit you want to pull on me. There’s no exception for someone to ever not know the name of someone they’ve slept with, or to need multiple hands to count how many guys they’ve given blowjobs to. It’s just never going to be cool to be promiscuous, regardless of your gender.

Yeah yeah, you’re young and what you do now doesn’t matter when you grow older because people can change and shouldn’t be reprimanded for acts from their past. I’ve heard this so many times, but how can you ever expect to raise respectable children and steer them in the right direction when you were sleeping with a different person every weekend in your 20s?

This isn’t a double standard either. There’s no way I would ever (knowingly) have sex with or enter a serious relationship with someone who I know had had sex with way too many people, and there are more people than not who feel the same way.

That’s just disgusting. Call me old fashioned, but I’ll sleep well at night knowing that I’ve never had a pregnancy scare or had to get tested for an std. You keep having ”fun” and going out and doing you on the weekends, but don’t try and tell anyone else that they shouldn’t call you a slut if that's truly what you are.

Here’s some valid advice, and a thought that I’m sure has never ran through your head: if you don’t want to be called a slut, don’t do anything slutty. Simple as that. Crazy concept, right?
