Slut Shame

tumblr_ngext6FRqG1rfduvxo1_250So here I am reading blogs, wasting time, gossiping about celebs and who do I run across? Amber Rose! ET Online was interviewing her about herself, tweeting and her next move. She mentioned being slut shamed and I honestly didn’t know what she meant by it. I thought to myself, if there is slut-shamed, is there slut-pride?! What is this?

Slut Shamed
Slut Shamed means when someone goes out of their way to make another person feel bad (likely a woman) about their sexual history. In other words, calling someone a hoe. Here is my take on this; no one can insult you if you own your shit.

I can not tell you how many times someone tried to take my past and throw it in my face. I am not moved about something or someone I did yesterday. I’m not doing it or them now, so fuck off. If someone will go out of their way to “slut shame” you about your sexual history or lack of, shame on them. Also, pat yourself on the back because you are so important that they had to dig in their bag of dirt to try and throw some of it on you. Have a seat hater!

Sure, we’ve all done something we’re not proud of, it’s cool because it happens. However, when you continue to live a certain lifestyle that would make your nana blush that’s on you, the present not the past.

It’s important to have pride about where you came from and how far you have come along. If I was a stripper and someone threw that in my face, and I’m in a better place, I would tweet my credit score and keep moving. Do not let your past prevent you from seeing how you’ve come. Some of us have to go through it in order to come out a stronger and better woman. You might still see the scar but it won’t bleed unless you pick at it.
