Skip to comments.6 Brazen Advocates of Slut Culture on the Pseudo-Feminist Left
Posted on 10/24/2010 1:40:30 PM PDT by HorowitzianConservative
Sluthood wasn't always considered a virtue. Most normal, rational people look at sleeping around as something sad and wrong. It's not healthy, physically or mentally, it can be damaging to a young girl's reputation, and it can also be incredibly dangerous. Women that sleep around oftentimes end up feeling used and regret their choices when they get older and decide to settle down. Other women end up contracting STDs, which may or may not be treatable. For these reasons and more, being a slut is understandably looked down upon -- it can be genuinely harmful. Today's pseudo-feminists, however, have turned that common sense logic on its head.
Sluthood is now, unbelievably, looked at in their eyes as healthy and empowering. Sleeping with random men every night is not sleeping around, it's "embracing your sexuality." This attitude has trickled down into our everyday culture, and it's had an effect on young girls. Almost two-thirds of teenagers who do have sex end up wishing they hadn't. Teens who have sex early are more likely to be depressed or suicidal. And while femisogynists act as if birth control and condoms makes sex absolutely risk-free, the truth is not quite as clear. The emotional consequences are clear; physically, the truth is simply that condoms are not foolproof. Consider that 1 in 4 teenage girls now have an STD. And pregnancy can only reliably be prevented through abstinence, something teenage girls need to know, considering that teenage mothers are significantly more likely to live in poverty and rely on welfare.

Since sluttiness often leads to unwanted pregnancy, which in turn often leads to abortion, perhaps that's what you'd like pictures of.
Yes, indeed: this thread is useless without pictures.
“It’s almost like there really is some male conspiracy to degrade women — except so-called feminists are the ones actually perpetuating it.”
Along with nearly all of current pop culture.
Have you checked prime time TV lately, including some of the favorite shows of Freepers?

I heard Imus say that his 12-year-old son would rather watch Glee than the game; but, Deirdre Imus won’t let him watch it anymore because it’s so bad.
There have always been women perpetuating promiscuity: there is almost zero monogamy within the lesbian subculture where no men are involved. Women hire prostitutes if they can not attract someone to discretely meet their desires in other ways. They ogle male strippers far less than the other way around, but Chippendale's wasn't a flash in the pan phenomenon - it's still going strong.
Contrary to the commentary usually seen on Free Republic, women become addicted to porn in great numbers as well. The percentage appears to be less than for men, But only if you take a quick and very shallow glance. If you look at porn deeper, you find that women more often lust after three dimensional pornography - there are fare more vibrators and dildos sold reducing men to an idolatrous representation than there are blow up dolls or artificial vaginas.
Women tend to consider it hateful to bring this up.
I believe that William F. Buckley, Jr. wrote to Hugh Hefner that, “The Sexual Revolution will free the men first.”
Add to that one of Rush Limbaugh’s ‘undeniable truths of life,’ namely that “Modern feminism was founded to get ugly girls more dates,” and we get this article.
It would be funny if it weren’t for the lives destroyed...
Tertiary (late stage) syphillis:
Some of the commercials on TV help perpetuate the slut culture. Anybody seen that zoosk commercial with the women looking over an online dating site and one of them saying, “I could go for some serious romance?” Everytime I see it, all I think is “jeez, what a whore.”
Damn dude, you’re harshing my buzz.
“I believe that William F. Buckley, Jr. wrote to Hugh Hefner that, The Sexual Revolution will free the men first.”
And it did. The worst part is, that women who have let themselves be manipulated into thinking that sex without committment is empowering, are now seeking to drag other women into the mistakes they made, mainly out of spite. Also to make them share their misery with them as well. ti is alo frightening that the values of the entertainment industry are permeating (actually infecting) the values of mainstream society. ANY biography on ANY actress is filled with how the actress, before being famous, was abused horrendously and instead of facing their demons and oncquering them, they instead go into Hollywood and just become someone else for a while, then do drugs in the meantime to avoid facing who they are as people. AND we all know HOW they get to the top and it isn’t through talent.
Now women and men are imitating the ‘norms’ of severely emotionally and psychologically damaged people. People who are chaotic and unstable and usually major trouble to people they get involved with. Girls and boys need to be yanked into a stable lifestyle/values and the entertainers yanked OUT of mainstream society. I would have to say that it frightens me to think of the life my children will have to lead to avoid getting badly hurt.
Sorry, it had to be that way. And, it's "Dudette."
Most women don’t do other women, they have sex with men. No where in all of these posts do I see where men are held responsible for their part in this.
What is up with that?????
It takes two to get it done why are we leaving the other half out of this discussion?????
Good point. Men need ot stop running around, trying to get every woman the ypossibly can into bed and then complaining about there not being any decent women out there.
Thank you! It’s difficult being a slut by yourself.
Cripes that’s revolting.
I think that the tart fails to understand the real definition of ‘serious romance.’
Musci videos like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQa7SvVCdZk&feature=related rarely show the reality of women who worked in brothels and what they looked like in actuality.
Having grown up in Palm Springs in the '70s, I know exactly what your kids face. Thank God that they have you to watch out for them; my parents were clueless. My wife and I moved out of California just to have the chance of bringing up children remotely normally; no TV, either.
Talk about "harshing a buzz"....who is that woman?
The cure for syphillis is to get somebody to take a crap on your face??
It’s almost like there really is some male conspiracy to degrade women — except so-called feminists are the ones actually perpetuating it.
It never ceases to amaze me how these orthodox feminists blatantly support policies that actually hurt women’s interests in the long run. I’ve had a few discussions with these women and they simply could not understand that
a) Self control is the only real empowerment and
b) I was not a self-loathing woman, a puritanical bigot, or a sweet but brainwashed idiot for refusing to have sex before marriage and
c) They do NOT represent my interests so they cannot claim to represent ALL women without admitting they think they know what’s good for me more than I myself do. Which is exactly the same thing they accuse conservatives of doing.
Isn't it? Of course, it takes years and years to achieve that stage of the disease. Meanwhile...you just spread it...
(ooops. Poor word choice owing to the title of this thread)
I don't think so.
“oftentimes end up feeling used” Honey, you were used before I met you.
>>Women tend to consider it hateful to bring this up. <<
I don’t find it hateful at all.
I find it to be truthful, however, that is not at all what this article is talking about.
It’s talking about the push by some women to make other women into sluts, especially young women. You’ll always have sluts. But most young women like relationships with sex as they icing on the cake. These women want them to look for sex first, because they do. Our society sexualizes everything.
“who is that woman?”
...stolen from your “about’ page...
Thanks, I was thinking she looked kind of familiar...
“Our society sexualizes everything”
No need to look any farther than FreeRepublic for examples of that statement. Threads that have absolutely nothing to do with sex, sexuality, or anything remotely related to the subject can be filled with photos of scantily clad women and “I’d hit it” references. It’s ridiculous.
I imagine that Todd has seen that look a time or two...
My parents were useless too. Failed, I didn’t end up pregnant, but I didn’t get help getting out of an abusive (verbally and emotionally) relationsihp and I had someone help me develop the confidence to drop him, but Dad didn’t do anything, didn’t even try.
Oh secondly, I don’t have kids yet. But I know what to avoid in guys and have the confidence to follow my instincts. thanks for the compliment, it means a lot.
In defense of sluts.
In purely biological terms, there may be a good reason for sluts to exist. It boils down to a simple problem. There are numerous people who should not reproduce. For whatever reason, they are reproductive “also-rans”.
Either they cannot create viable offspring, or they can only produce defective or unhealthy offspring, or they are physically or psychologically unable to raise children.
However, like people who can reproduce and raise children, they are compelled to want to do so, for the most part. And this is a major problem.
People who should reproduce, biologically, have a hard enough time in finding a compatible mate, optimal for raising children. If there are lots of people who should not reproduce, but want to try anyway, they “get in the way.”
Enter the slut. In this case, there is a likelihood that to start with, the slut is someone who should not themselves reproduce. However, they can serve a greater biological purpose by enticing *others* who should not reproduce, *away* from those who should reproduce.
But this creates another problem. The slut needs to lure one group, but *not* lure the other group.
Enter the idea of “sexual morality”. Optimally, those that reproduce should be in a monogamous relationship with their partner. Humans have even innovated the idea of socially enforced marriage to help insure that breeding couples stay together and raise their children.
Thus, people who should reproduce should *also* be moral enough, so they do not attempt to reproduce with those who shouldn’t.
Breeders should not want to have sex with sluts.
Conversely, those who should *not* reproduce should hook up with the slut. At least enough to keep them out of the way. And the slut needs to be slutty enough to divert several of these individuals away from the breeding pair. Which is perhaps why we have prostitution.
And there’s yet one more twist. Females who have been through menopause can no longer reproduce. But it has been noted that many such women suddenly enjoy sex more. This may push them to become sluts themselves, augmenting the ranks of younger sluts.
Formerly a breeder, now a slut.
So, adding it all up, to help the human species to make and raise the best offspring, we end up with: sluts, sexual morality, prostitution, marriage, cougars, and monogamy.
What the article says is true, I think, as far as it goes.
What is missing is the impact on the lives and choices of other women, women who are trying to plot a more cautious and responsible course.
Left out. Immature. Undesirable. Those are the feelings that go along with realizing that the men you are interested in have available partners (casual connections, hookups) that you can’t compete with.
You can’t compete because you are not “above average” in the sex/dating marketplace. You are a little less than “pretty”, a little less than “trim”, a little less than “confident.”
For every hurt, desperate or infected slut trying to recover their sense of mastery of the mating game after yet another disappointing connection, there is a sister (in the feminist sense) trying to find a stable partner in a world where the qualities of stability are routinely devalued.
For the less successfully aggressive woman, partner stability is everything. They are not able or strong enought to try and discard partners. They want a “life number” of “ONE”. One partner. Forever. With security as part of the loving bond.
How can they find a partner like that with men who will have to choose them over more immediately rewarding partners? They aren’t the most attractive and they aren’t easily available. That’s a tough competitive position for a woman who isn’t that confident to start with.
Colleges are full of young women who hope that they will be able to put a disappointing high school dating career behind them. They hope to find young men who will appreciate their more intelligent, responsible and supportive personalities. They find instead a competition with attractive, confident and available sluts who are willing to pursue sexual opportunities with lots of guys, guys that otherwise might be prospects for late blooming, but ready and rewarding young women.
The sluts are depressed because their track is so physically and emotionally risky. (The author of the piece didn’t even mention the risk of being hit. She must hang around a really nice set of men. Of course many sluts aren’t so lucky.) Their sisters are depressed because they are competing in a game with the deck stacked against them.
This is empowerment?

Good point. I notice that all kinds of catalogues that wend their way into my mailbox (most unbidden!!) have those repulsive sex “toys” for women in them. Even places like the Vermot Country Store! I called them and complained and said I didn’t want their catalogues any more; they said they could send me one that didn’t contain those items. They didn’t understand I didn’t want to support a company that sells that stuff at all!
Lust is equally distributed among the sexes. Both have the ability to sink to lower than animal level.
“Musci videos like this”
That was so disgusting that it actually made me angry.
I couldn’t believe that when I saw a copy of my mom’s Vermont Country Store catalog... I thought the Goodies and the Moxie was risque enough as it was!
You know how it is with catalogs - your name gets sold and re-sold, so I’ve gotten lots of catalogs from places not only that I’ve never ordered from, but never even heard of!
So far Gaiam (some artsy yoga eco-nut outfit) sells sex toys, Dr. Leonard’s (stuff for old people) sells sex toys, now the Vermont Country Store for crying out loud sells sex toys. And some others whose names I can’t remember. At least The Company Store (comforters and sheets) doesn’t sell them yet! Nor does True Value hardware.
What’s next? Lehman’s, with non-electric wind-up ones made by the Amish!???!?
You’d think people die from celibacy or something, like starving to death.
Anyway, I was more than a little disgusted not just be the girls' attire, most of whom I had to keep my distance from just for saying hello, but sincerely, the girls were dancing like they were bent over the hoods of cars and the boys were dancing right up behind them. I left early.
I have had VT country store catalog for over forty years in my home. I was shocked to find the sex toys in the catalog. I was appalled and I called.
Precisely my thoughts. Are men who have sexual affairs outside of marriage also “sluts”? Or is this just a woman-bashing thread?
Actually, the use of the word slut in this article is demeaning. Thankfully, I read enough here on the thread and didn’t give their website a click.
The term is gender nuetral.
