YOU’RE A SLUT

Slut. I find myself baffled as to how, in the year 2014, this word still runs rampant throughout society. Slut. It is no longer solely a word men use to belittle a woman’s sexuality, but one that women, too, have incorporated, abused, and continuously spew from judgmental lips. Slut. The bearer of this name carries the stigma that weighs down all around, as they are held captive to those four letters- S L U T.

I am from a country that claims to be the land of the free. We recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem proclaiming our unalienable right for freedom, but we are not free. We are bound by the chains we ourselves bind tightly around our necks. We let words like slut, fag, and dyke be the voice of our generation as we cower behind them. We let ignorance be our leader as we are governed by prejudice and fear.

Don’t be ashamed of who you are. Don’t let anyone tell you what you have to be. You are free– free to make your own decisions without being condemned by society. Don’t live in fear of what people might say about you, but find happiness within yourself.
