Female Empowerment or Slut Justification?

“Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it.”

-Leo Tolstoy

Last night Amber Rose posted a picture of herself on her Instagram account without pants or panties on, exposing her rather bushy box for the entire world to see.  Of course, given her previous profession as a stripper, and her current attention whoring, this isn’t news. What is different about this particular instance of her showing her goods to the known world is the reason why.  The photo was captioned with the hashtag #Amberroseslutwalk.

For those that may be unfamiliar with her slut walk, allow me to enlighten you.  This is the third annual installment of the event. It is scheduled for October 1, 2017 in Los Angeles.  The mission of the of the slut walk, according to Amber Rose herself is “to break down the idea that women should dress a certain way to avoid being victimized.” She goes on to say, “I like to dress provocative. I’m happy about my body. I work very hard at my body,” she told us. “And if I wear my cleavage out or I wear a short skirt, it does not mean I’m going to go have an orgy in the next five minutes. I could go be picking up my son or going out to eat, or whatever the case may be. It’s my body, it’s my choice, I can wear what I want, and it doesn’t mean I want you to touch me.” (www.mtv.com)

Let me be clear. Amber Rose is right, to an extent. That extent is that regardless or irrespective of what a woman is wearing, no man has the right to touch her without her consent. No sane, reasonable person, or in this case, man in specifically would even argue that.  As usually is the case in situations like this, there’s an ulterior, evil motive being masked by an outwardly benign one.

Again, Amber Rose is correct. How a woman dresses is not a justification to rape or sexually assault her. However, the truth in her statement stops there and here true agenda begins to reveal itself. See, what Amber Rose and her supporters really want is to make being a slut or engaging in slut like behavior acceptable. The want to remove the stigma attached to it, and have the ability to carry themselves anyway that they see fit with no judgements, particularly from men all under the guise of stopping sexual assault, rape, etc.

What Amber Rose and people who support this foolishness, don’t or perhaps won’t ever understand is that while they may have the right to dress as sluts, whores, and harlots, what they don’t have the right to is to dictate who dressing in such a way is perceived.  People have the right to not only have an opinion on what you make public, but to say it, and say it publicly. You are free to do as you please, so long as you aren’t hurting anyone, but you aren’t free from judgement.

This really boils down to one thing. People like Amber Rose, her supporters, and other like-minded people are saying with this slut walk is that is ok for them to carry and conduct themselves like a slut, yet deserve to be treated with respect.  The bottom line and inescapable truth is that people treat you how you present yourselves. For better or worse, that is s a fact. For those of us who have jobs, are we allowed to come to work any way that we choose? Hell, before you even get offered the job you must have an interview. Do you think how you present yourself has no bearing on you getting the job? It is willfully ignorant to think that it doesn’t. Here’s another example. When you go out to eat, be it a fast food place like Burger King, or a nice restaurant, are you going to eat there if it looks or smells dirty? Are you going to eat food served to you by someone who doesn’t look clean? How you present yourself to the world is an outward expression of how you want to be viewed, and by extension, treated.  They know exactly what connotation comes with dressing that way, yet they choice to do it anyway.

Ladies, no amount female empowerment rhetoric is going to change the fact that men, for the most part, especially those with means, don’t settle down with whores. Yes, we will fuck them, and may even have a kid or two with them, but no man wants to settle down with a whore. There are always notable exceptions, but those are aberrations that don’t represent the majority or aggregate.  A lot of women want to conduct themselves like whores and sluts, but then want to be treated as wholesome are as queen by men. They want to fuck and suck without consequence. They want to be able to be slut and fuck as many men as they want with no judgement, and when they’ve had their fun still be seen as respectable.

When a man is ready to settle down, he’s not looking to do it with a whore or slut. No amount of slut walks or propaganda will ever change that.
