Slut Shaming -Strippers Have Feelings Too

Updated on October 7, 2015

The Inspiration Behind The Movement

Time Reported – (2011) Toronto police officer spoke at a university on the topic of campus rape when he said: “Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” The implication that women are responsible for or deserving of their assault because of their dress or attire outraged many. Two women (Sonya Barnett and Heather Jarvis) organized a rally protesting the culture that labels, shames, and blames women for sexual assault.

For The Record

For the record, no women DESERVES assault or should suffer oppression, violence, and be objectified by others. All people should be treated with dignity and respect. Women are achieving ground-breaking achievements every day. The feminist movement took many women out of the role of secretary, good housewife, seen but not heard-Stepford wife to having the opportunity to pursue the career and industries they desired to pursue breaking glass ceilings.

Question

Do you support the slutwalk?

Here are my issues, questions, and clarification needed

The feminist movement participants (women) were the opposite of the movement participants seen today. The women that fault to obtain positions of leadership, control over their bodies, equal opportunity employment, etc. did so with dignity desiring to be taken seriously to take part in change. What are you proving about yourself as a woman always displayed in public in a highly sexual manner? Do you have the right not to be labeled when you chose how you label yourself? An older man once told me all women are female, not all women are ladies. Old women also told the younger generation there was no prize in being “loose.” Old men told their son’s-there are women you sleep with and women you marry-you should know the difference. While times have changed, they haven’t changed that much.

When the sign was displayed “stripper’s have feels too” this really seemed to capture the involvement and motive of the women. Stripping, or getting over solely in life by looks and body, doesn’t speak empowerment but rather celebrates objectification. You can present yourself in any manner that you desire which should be free to others labels but make sure the label you present represents your brand (you) to the best light and situation.

Questions

Do you feel this movement represents women/gender/racial/sexual-orientation/profession equality?

How does this movement differ from the feminist movement?

Do you support this movement?

Question – How can you decide to twerk on youtube and constantly promote the curves of your body and want the respect on another level?
