Shame on Slut-shaming

Postby 6499 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 11:15 pm

Wikipedia defines slut-shaming as the act of making a woman feel guilty or inferior for engaging in certain sexual behaviors that deviate from traditional or orthodox gender expectations, dressing in sexually provocative ways, for requiring access to birth control, or even for being raped or sexually assaulted. How prevalent is slut-shaming, and what can we do to change people's attitudes?

Yes! This!

Perhaps also talk about how slut shaming ties in with victim blaming?

As an erotic romance writer and long time romance reader I'd be happy to be a part of this in anyway.
