So the best thing happened today. I was hanging out with some dudes and one of them was talking about some girl, and said “she is such a slut.” His friend, who is a total jokester and not easily offended, says, suddenly serious “Dude, you don’t call girls sluts. It’s not cool.”Dude #1 fell silent, looking embarrassed, and quickly changed the subject.
If that A+ example of a man hadn’t said something, I certainly would have, but honestly, guys, CALLING OUT YOUR BROS FOR PROBLEMATIC BEHAVIOR IS WAY MORE EFFECTIVE than me (or any other woman) doing so and likely being written off as an “oversensitive feminazi.”
Men and women - let’s put an end to slut-shaming and all other forms of sexism, TOGETHER.
