On Changing Views About Sexual Liberation and Respect

If you’ve been around Facebook for the past few days, it is likely that you have come across that photo of a girl with her top raised, exposing her breasts, with a guy sucking on one of her “goodies” while at least five men stood along and cheered them on.

A lot will consider that photo lewd, disgusting, totally unbecoming. What’s worse, all of them just view the girl as deplorable. The guys? Meh, they were just being guys. If you think like this, the only person you should be ashamed of is yourself.

At first glance, a lot of netizens blamed the girl for being drunk beyond control, and that’s why the guys took advantage of her state. They slut-shamed her, told her she deserved it, that she was “asking for it” anyway, that she used it to pull attention to herself, to somehow, make up for her lack of good looks. Again, no comment for the guys. Until when are we going to accept these comments, anyway? Seriously, humanity, we need to give justice to our education. This is why, whenever I come across this anti-feminist comments, I usually tell them off and take it as an opportunity to educate. Continue reading »
