    "It is very easy to destroy a woman’s reputation. Facts are not needed, rumors and suggestions will do. There is no need to attack a woman’s professional decisions when her sexual and personal choices can be questioned. Paint a scarlet letter on her, and no one will listen to what the slut has to say. The McDonnells’ lawyers knew that, Gov. Christie’s lawyers knew that. They relied on misogyny when dispensing seemingly irrelevant details about the women involved."

    Slut Shaming is a feminist argument I believe has merit. I believe it's real, and I believe it's wrong.

    That's great OP! :D Out of curiosity, may I ask you what you do, as an ally, to help about it (on a daily basis and/or militant action)?

    I don't know how it is in other browsers but in Firefox, I can see the address in the lower left side of my window when I hover on a link. But pickle's bitly link didn't show the address this time, it just showed the same address as the link.

    I only believe in violence in the defense of violence, and slut shaming may be wrong, but it isn't violent.

    Violence doesn't always have to be physical you know, it can also be psychological. Insults, catcalling, humiliating or degrading somebody by spreading rumors (true or false), revenge porn, they're all examples of psychological violence. It's not because nobody gets hit that the victim doesn't hurt.

    As if there is something honorable about being a "slut."

    If a woman is a slut, let alone refers to herself as one and airs her sexual exploits to the world, the only problem lies with herself. She is fair game for shaming.

    I'm not a feminist ally. I just believe that feminist argument has merit.

    I'm an egalitarean. As an egalitarean I believe inequality is wrong when that inequality is a result of discrimination regardless of race and gender.
