from Les chats de Willy Ronis, Paris, 1954 (Willy Ronis) via liquidnight
Slut-bashing shows us that sexism is still alive and that as boys and girls grow up, different sexual expectations and identities are applied to them. Slut-bashing is evidence of a sexual double standard that should have been eliminated decades ago… Slut-bashing sends the message to all girls, no matter how “pure” their reputations, that men and boys are free to express themselves sexually, but women and girls are not."
