In defining it, you would see that the criteria is completely subjective. In use, the word is frequently trotted out only to denigrate women who do not fit into your moral box, however small or large it may be. THAT is the problem. Women should stop rewarding promiscuous behavior? Fine. How many sexual partners is the cut off limit before we women refuse to date a man or sleep with him? Do kids matters? Does frequency matter? Etc. There can be no consensus!
If you choose to date women with under a certain number of sexual partners or a certain amount of sexual experience, then fine. Knock yourself out. But if we are going to attempt some sort of change, it has to be on something other than this shaky, sexist persecution.
quote:I would suggest that some of you women not let your personal insecurity about possible being promiscuous taint your examination of the collect condition.
I was wondering when that line was going to make an appearance in this thread. Anyone railing against the labelling of other people's sexual activities must be insecure about their promiscuous behaviors? I guess anyone marching against AIDS must have it? Come on, Noah. Wrong is wrong and you don't need to suffer from it to recognize it and speak out against it. Nor should we.
quote:Men, for the most part, are not the ones complaining.
Of course not! That is the very crux of sexist behavior. It's good for men and men only!
quote:You might hear men lamenting about how discussed they are about scantily clad women who appear on some video.... but when they see it they aren't turning the channel and in fact many move in for a closer look. Consequently, men are reveling in female promiscuity and raunchiness.
Scantily-clad women are now being labelled as promiscuous??? She can be called promiscuous without any idea of whether or not she's had sex, huh? I guess she just has that promiscuous look. It is enough for you that she has her "tig ol bitties" hanging out. It is enough for some other men that she simply HAVE big breasts. Not surprising because that is the same way this language is used toward women everyday.
quote:When one takes an inventory of feelings, it's really the women who are the unhappiest with the current situation and are the loneliest. Thus, if women are the loneliest and unhappiest from the current situation, then it only makes sense that they will be the ones to take responsibility for changing it.
Certainly! I contend it is sexists and misogynists we should be viciously rooting out and shaming. Women cannot continue to let men tear down their fellow sisters. Women cannot continue to buy into sexists garbage designed to leave them always on the short end of the stick.
