Perpetrator not only destroyed my home when I ran from his violence, but my clothing, valuables, sentimental and irreplaceable objects. Spray painting obscenities on the walls, dousing everything with gallons of paint and burning my clothes.
Slut-shaming has nothing to do with what a woman does with her body.
Because women are slut-shamed for sexually engaging with AND for sexually rejecting men. We are called sluts for sending nudes AND for refusing to send nudes; for flirting AND for not flirting with men; for smiling AND for not smiling at men; for accepting AND refusing unsolicited dick pics from men. Do you see the pattern? Women are slut-shamed for saying yes AND for saying no because women are slut shamed for having a say i.e. for expressing consent (or lack thereof). Slut-shaming has nothing to do with what a woman does with her body; it is a tactic used to disconnect women from their voices.
