If you don’t have sex until marriage you’re looked at funny. If you lose your virginity at a young age, people call you fast. If you have more sexual partners than the person judging you, you’re promiscuous. If you refuse to show a lot of skin you’re too modest. If you show too much you look easy. Guys like to render compliments via sexual harassment (whether verbal or physical), and we are expected to accept it with open arms because “that’s just what men do.” I swear society blows my mind on a regular basis. It can’t decide if it wants women to be nuns or sex symbols and no matter how we live our lives, it’ll be deemed problematic by whoever thinks their opinion is gold. I have much, much more to say but I’ll conclude with that. I suggest that you visit the Instagram account of model Adwoa Aboah (@adwoaaboah). The piece she did on the #FreeTheNipple movement and slut shaming can be found in her bio. It triggered this piece and enabled me to articulate how pissed I’ve been.
