I agree. She knows she is a slut but too stupid to protect herself against VD. You would think that if she felt shame she would have used condoms to prevent the stigma of an unwanted disease and a creepy partner with so little respect for her that he didn’t care to tell her he was contagious.

Sweetheart, wake up. Even wearing a condom perfectly every time will not prevent herpes, warts, etc. The only thing it *might* prevent is a trip to an abortion “clinic”.

Kissing someone can also easily transfer disease. It's mind-blowing that “making out” with random people is considered by many to be disease free. Just like you did with the random Marines.

YOU ARE A SLUT because you are selfishly destroying your chances of being a loved wife and mother. Disease, contraception and abortion will destroy you. All for a few cheap thrills with random men who are using you as a kleenex.

Now stay clean, work on some skills and pray that a respectable man will someday love you.

Signed,

-Former male slut

There’s one cause for “STDs” - fornication.

I’m conflicted as to which part of this incident is hawg-stupider: “youth group spring break bus trip to Myrtle Beach,” or “snuck off to make out with Marines.” I think I’ll have to go with the former, since it was presumably planned by brain-dead adults, while the latter was the act of idiot teens.

(Nothing specific against Marines: the same behavior with any adult men would be equally hazardous.)

You are quite right.

Not to excuse the Marines, as I think adult men going after high-school age girls is inexcusable. Exact age not given, but this certainly could have been a case of “15 will get you 20.”

However, chasing any young women that don’t run away too hard is quite literally hard-wired into the male brain. It’s the default setting, and resisting it is difficult even for guys with every intent of doing what is right. Presence of alcohol doesn’t help with resisting such temptation.

As you say, putting a Christian youth group into a “Girls Gone Wild” type environment doesn’t seem like the best of all possible ideas. /s

To my mind, meeting a random guy on the street and sneaking off to make out with him is more or less the definition of slut.

This article is an excellent example of someone trying on a shoe, then announcing loudly that it fits.

that she contracted genital herpes is because people called her a "slut."

I disagree. She contracted herpes because she was sleeping around. "People" just ID'd her.

Sorry, re-reading indicates she was probably 16 or 17 when the Marine incident occurred.

I also find it bizarre that she was filled with self-loathing for contracting a disease, not for the behavior that caused her to contract the disease.

Getting a disease is not immoral, it’s just a possible consequence of certain behavior.

It should also be pointed out that to catch a disease it is not necessary to live up to the modern definition of “slut,” which I assume is “excessive sleeping around.” Presumably, a “normal” amount of sleeping around is fine.

To get infected, only a single act is necessary.

IOW, a girl could in theory lose her virginity and at the same time get pregnant and contract half a dozen diseases, some of them incurable, from a single act of fornication.

Same for a guy, of course, except he probably wouldn’t get knocked up. :)

Contracting the disease is just one way of “getting caught.”

I understand your point. Society’s judgment is triggered by the consequences - pregnancy or disease - and seems to send the message not that screwing around is immoral, but that the girl should have managed it better.

Indeed.

Shaming is the proper social response to the shameful.

Ridicule is the proper social response to the ridiculous.

Awww, the sexual revolution. So much progress, so much justice.

So much freedom,

Women free to act like sluts,
Men free to treat women like sluts,
And society free to draw the appropriate opinions about both.

The lady in the picture has beautiful teeth!

That is true. But I hope the GOP doesn't lose a perfectly safe House seat (SC-01) because of them.

This definition is goofy:“slut-shaming” is the act of declaring someone a slut (or a whore or any other similar word, or even promiscuous, for that matter) based upon perceived sexual behavior: the clothing someone wears, the way they communicate with potential partners, the people they date, the number of partners they have (or haven’t) had, and the type of sex they enjoy.

She's described being a slut, but for the most part they're encouraged by the modern world. Does "slut-shaming" really occur and what's wrong with a little shame?

Very true...I also really enjoyed reading your profile page...we are in near complete agreement about things...although I don’t trap...but I hunt!
