Modern feminism

RE: Modern feminism
Quote:If you personally think it's immoral that is your prerogative.
If you try to make a person (regardless of their gender) feel guilty for their sexual behavior, then that is slut shaming.

Of course I wouldn't stop people from having their behaviour, I consider promiscuous behaviour from both sides to be immoral, not because I think sex is only for procreation, but because I think sticking to a partner with emotional attachment makes more sense and compensates in the long run. Not that I think the occasional one night stand and hook up at the bar is immoral, it's not... What I consider immoral is people banging one different person per week and then complaining that dates don't take them seriously, it's just normal for people to refuse dating with someone who has had many sex partners. And I think promiscuous behaviour is for both sides not only women, even though women have a more easy time picking a partner, and that's the reason they get slut shamed more, even by non religious people. In all social groups most people will think of a woman who bangs the entire block as slut, that's how it works.

RE: Modern feminism
"even though women have a more easy time picking a partner, and that's the reason they get slut shamed more," no that is not the reason at all. Women are slut shamed more in most cultures because women are not supposed to be sexual creatures. Women are not supposed to have sexual thoughts and desires. A woman can be slut shamed even if she's only had 1 partner. Young girls who develope early can be slut shamed even though they're virgins. Many religious women are slut shamed even within the confines of their own marriages. Because they're meant to please their husbands, but not actually enjoy sex.

I'm not saying this stuff is overly common everywhere, but it is certainly real. And it has nothing to do with who can find a sex partner easier.

Things Modern Feminist Need to Focus On:

1. Disabled parents are at very high risk of losing child custody cases to non-disabled partners

2. The FDA does not test the highly dangerous chemicals that are used in relaxers to straighten hair, yet it's being applied to two year olds

3. Sex education is not comprehensive, and does not cover all sexualities

4. Parents still have the right to sterilize a disabled child

I was talking about social circles in developed countries, I see the reason I quoted as being the psychological reason why slut shaming happens, even though I'm not really talking about slut shaming here but more likely social prejudice. I completely agree on the rest but that's more predominant in third world countries or theocracies. The example is Islam. Those damn arabs

Yes definitely worse than I described in third world countries. I was actually giving examples specifically from the town I grew up in right here in the good ole USA. :/

Sometimes I'm really happy to live in europe. I have so many female friends who had multiple partners that I don't think that slut shaming happens that often amongst youngsters, even though some older parents still insist on it frequently, I know quite a few. A female friend of my girlfriend is 21 and her mother doesn't allow her to go on vacation because she's afraid her daughter my sleep with her boyfriend, as if that was abnormal at such a young age

I think she is saying that modern feminists focus on slut shaming too much whilst completely ignoring the frankly terrible treatment of women in other countries. Its like if I called a woman a 'bitch' and they get really offended by it, but at that exact moment, a few thousand miles away, a woman is being whipped for being raped. Its like: get your priorities right.

This seems an example of first world problem shaming. Even though women in 3rd world countries have it much worse, everyone has their story to tell.

I don't think so. (Wouldn't be the first time I was wrong of course.) I think slut shaming is specifically about coming down harder on women than on men.

Rape culture -to me- is about dismissing rape with an attitude of "boys will be boys". One sex's youthful hijinks can't make the other sex's violation okay. Suppressing what may come naturally is precisely what is at stake. Pro-social behavior means not sticking your dick where it isn't welcome (unless you're play acting of course).

Luckily, only uneducated simpletons think like that.
'The more I learn about people the more I like my dog'- Mark Twain

'You can have all the faith you want in spirits, and the afterlife, and heaven and hell, but when it comes to this world, don't be an idiot. Cause you can tell me you put your faith in God to put you through the day, but when it comes time to cross the road, I know you look both ways.' - Dr House

“Young earth creationism is essentially the position that all of modern science, 90% of living scientists and 98% of living biologists, all major university biology departments, every major science journal, the American Academy of Sciences, and every major science organization in the world, are all wrong regarding the origins and development of life….but one particular tribe of uneducated, bronze aged, goat herders got it exactly right.” - Chuck Easttom

"If my good friend Doctor Gasparri speaks badly of my mother, he can expect to get punched.....You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others. There is a limit." - Pope Francis on freedom of speech

I've known plenty of educated simpletons that are certainly stupid enough to think something like that.

RE: Modern feminism
Critcising promiscuous behaviour is the practice of devaluing a person to the level of merchandise, further devaluing them every time they're used.

Equality is generations away. Sexism is so entrenched in society that even many women can't see it and if they do they are suddenly feminazis.

I think women and men can be concerned about all sexist problems, big or small, no matter what country.
There are mothers in Africa who pound their daughter's breasts with rocks everyday until they're flat so they won't get raped but they still get raped anyway.
I've seen a picture of a little girl crying and holding a bag of lollies. She'd just had her clitoris cut off.
These are bad images. Enough to make a sexist man say,'what are our women complaining about, they've got it so good.'
So I think there's a danger in that.
