OPINION: Word to misogynists: Stop the slut-shaming

Hello, my name is Dakota Fincher and I’m a slut.

I am a slut because most times I forego wearing a bra.

My shorts may show a little too much skin on a 110-degree day in sunny Arizona.  Because of my sex appeal, my body count must be through the roof.  I’m sorry, let me explain. It is time to shame slut-shaming.

What is slut-shaming? Per Bing, it is “the action or fact of stigmatizing a woman for engaging in behavior judged to be promiscuous or sexually provocative.”

Belly buttons? Cancelled. Short skirts? Forget it and cover up.

Lewd conversation may ensue if a woman’s shoulders are showing. It could lead to speculation on how many sexual partners she has had.

Does this matter? It does not. It is too much to be slutty but being a prude is worse. There is no winning, so women might as well wear what they want and be who they prefer.

My words of advice to misogynists: Do not give two cents where two cents are not  due. I don’t care what  comments you make about my body turning you on. And BTW, talking about “that ass” is not going to get you that ass. I promise.

Why even waste your time? It’s disrespectful and does not have anything to do with a woman’s character.

There are characteristics to describe women beyond their cup size. Try smart, bold and strong. The women who are being whistled at have chosen to live their life in comfort. They know why they wore a particular out fit when they left the house, and it was not to get male attention.

I’m not saying every guy out there participates in slut-shaming, but the word “slut” came into existence somehow. Personally, I don’t believe it originated from females.

Along those lines, however, women need to stop calling other women sluts. It is hard enough with men putting women  down. It shouldn’t be done by people who know what it is like.

To my female readers: Be promiscuous, or not. Show some skin, or don’t. Shake what your mama gave you, or sit down. Do not listen to anyone other than yourself. Never let anyone tell you there is anything wrong with being comfortable in your own skin.

Don’t’ let someone make you feel bad for being who you are.  Support other people’s choices. Come together instead of apart.

Dakota Fincher is a slut-supporting feminist. She believes anyone can be who they want to be, and assholes should keep their mouths shut. Also, Rhianna should have won a Grammy for ANTI. Don’t @ me.
