Tumblr has taught me more about feminism, womens rights, rape culture, slut shaming, mental illness etc, more than school ever had. So don’t you dare tell me this website is a complete and utter waste of time
reblog this if ur the emo cousin
you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.
Thank YOU HOLY SHIT
nah still gonna preach about slut-shaming because if we are raising our girls in a society where they see barely-18 (if that) models splashed everywhere during the time of their lives where they are most influenced by role-modelling we have no right to shame them for acting in the way they were taught to
13/14 year old girls (AND ALL OTHER GENDERS) are discovering what it means to be “sexy” at this age. they are going to wear things that are inappropriate - this goes for every middleschooler - they are experimenting and that!! is!!! okay!! we all were 13 and wore a skirt or too much bodyspray and felt like we were grown up!! the bad part is that society has taken that normative experimentation and made it disgusting. wanna know how? bc we have taught dudes that young girls are totally viable sexual partners (just look at lolita) and whomever makes the rules went “wait, i cannot control my dingdong around young girls in shorts because i have been conditioned to like any vision of legs i see. this disturbs me, and it is wrong. i don’t like feeling like i am wrong or dirty. WAIT what if i say they are the wrong and dirty one???? yEAH they should know better than to turn me on!!” you want proof? try the bodyspray topic again - young boys are trying to be “sexy” for their age group just like girls are trying to be sexy for their age group. but you don’t see boys having to miss school because they smell like axe, young boys are not sexualized like girls are (although they definitely have role-models i don’t approve of such as hyper-masculine males) so we don’t see older woman saying “you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, there is something really wrong with young boys smelling so good and not letting us touch them,” which is basically what this post sounds like.
behavior which is detrimental to a 13/14 year-old’s psyche such as reckless sexual abandon is not an opportunity for you to say “she’s a slut.” actual sexual activity is not the fault of a minor. you are basically saying “i expect someone who is too young to even vote to be in constant and knowledgeable command of their choices and that this is only the responsibility of the girl. boys will be boys at this age, ammiright?” fuck this ideal. the reason middleschoolers behave in this way isn’t because they are sluts. they behave in this way because we are failing in our responsibility as adults to teach younger generations about responsible sexual activity. how come when a student has not learned pre-calc we don’t expect them to understand calculus but when a student has not been given a safe and sane sexual education, we expect them to just know?
i am disappointed with this society which seems to throw large and difficult personal topics at young women - sex, drugs, etc. - and refuses to teach them how to handle these topics, only that they are the gateway to being (or not being) “cool.” We allow boys a lot of freedom in experimentation, but we will outright condemn any girl who is simply trying to figure out the rules to a game on her own when we should have given her the full packet and walk-through way before she started playing.
i hate this post and i hope it dies because there is so much disgusting about it it is 2014 and you can still make a comment about 13 year old girls being too sexy for their own good and you will get hundreds of thousands of notes i am sad and fed up idk
WHEN YOU THINK SOMEONE LIKES YOU
AND THEN THEY GET IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE ELSE
JOKES ON ME
