Some woman from Albania who had numerous critiques of “Western women.”
Basically we’re all horn dogs giving out sex right and left then wondering why men don’t take us seriously.
[As if being taken seriously should have anything to do with our sex lives.]
In any case, she tried to slut shame me and even used that word – slut – to try and make me feel bad.
Did it work?
Not fucking likely.
First of all, the last thing I’m going to do is let a woman in Albania who has NO IDEA who I am to take my blog posts and turn them against me.
My posts are a bit on the sexy side DELIBERATELY because I like being frivolous and light.
Lord knows there’s enough seriousness in my life to weigh me down.
Second, if I was a slut, I SURE AS HELL WOULD BE GETTING A LOT MORE ACTION THAN I AM.
And finally, I reject the idea that “western women” are obsessed with sex. I know MANY women who basically could live their lives without it and I dislike anyone who generalizes and stereotypes women in order to promote their own critique.
JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY IT DOESN’T MAKE IT TRUE.
As a general principle I strongly object to slut shaming. I think women should have as much freedom in their sex lives as men do without being treated like they’re diminished as human beings because of it.
Ms. Albania acts as if the best thing in the world is to have a man and not be single.
The best thing in the world is to have a man (or woman) who you connect with.
I don’t connect with everyone on that level.
Not everyone is a kindred spirit.
And that’s okay.
I can enjoy their company any way I want EVEN if that includes having sex.
If that makes me a slut in some people’s eyes, so be it.
I refuse to let a stranger tell me that my value is measured solely though my pussy and how tightly I let the norms of men rule over it.
