changed my avatar or whatever the little thumbnail picture thingy is called, and I realized shit…this is old, I probably need to update my profile pic on Facebook too but I really hate taking pictures…
A catcall is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The purity myth is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The fetishization of female purity in a world where catcalls are an acceptable form of communication telegraphs one thing very clearly:
“Women, stop sexualizing yourselves—that’s our job, and you’re taking all the fun out of it.”
The sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Otherwise it’s “sluttiness,” and sluttiness is agency and agency is threatening.
“Female ‘Purity’ is Bullshit”, by Lindy West (at jezebel.com)
I FUCKING LOVE LINDY WEST. SHE’S FROM SEATTLE AND SHE’S DA BEST.
^ Perfectly sums up why slut shaming is a load of misogynistic bullshit <3
And why these pathetic, limp dicked little weaklings need to get it through their dense skulls that we don’t give a fuck if they don’t like us ‘Dressing/acting like sluts’
We don’t give a fuck what they think/feel about us doing ANYTHING for that matter
The only person whose opinion of the way I dress/behave matters to me is MINE
