The Monogamous Slut!

on

The current wave of ‘Slut Walks” began when a Toronto police officer told women in a York University audience not to dress like a “slut” to avoid sexual assault.

One of the organizers commented on the walks:

“We have taken up the word slut … to claim that a slut does not have to remain a pejorative and demeaning epithet,” Toronto Slut Walk organizer Heather Jarvis told me. “A slut can be someone who is in control and unashamed of their sexuality…. A slut can be someone who is unafraid to enjoy consensual sex. A slut can be someone who refuses to believe…that enjoying sex or owning one’s sexuality is an invitation of violence.” If this is a definition of a slut, I definitely fit the bill!

What I find interesting about this whole issue is that it took one man’s uneducated comment to spark the controversy. It seems that, in general, we need people such as this Toronto police officer to speak out and bring issues to a head in order to take appropriate action.

I am glad that Toronto Police Constable Michael Sanguinetti had the balls to speak his mind. If he had not shared his seriously misguided opinion, we may not have had the opportunity as a society to realize that we are not as enlightened as we think we are. If a man of the law, who has seen the sheer brutality and damaging effects of rape, can walk around spewing this type of garbage to potential victums, we really have our work cut out for us.

In response to this issue, I will claim my right to the title ‘monogamous slut!” In general, women who thoroughly enjoy sex are labeled ‘slut’…if I have 3 times the amount of sex per year with one partner, compared to a woman who has only 1/3 of the amount of sex I have, but she has it with more than one partner, who is the bigger slut? In actuality, neither of us. Well folks, that’s all she wrote.

    Way to claim your own beautiful sexuality…! You own it, it’s a beautiful part of you, and nobody can tell you what to do or not do with it… Go ahead and dress as “slutty” as you like…
    Hey, if guys really really really like sex and are not ashamed of our sexuality, can we be sluts too…? heck yeah we can…!
