All girls hate sluts. We’re judgey, and catty, and mean, and we go out of our way to make sure that everyone knows of the evil this other person is doing with her own life in a way that does not actually affect us at all, because bitchy. But that’s just how it is. Sluts are the enemy and you’re not about to start the revolution, here.
I mean, it’s okay when you do it of course. You just broke up with your boyfriend, or moved to a new city, or lost a lot of weight, or moved out of your parents house, or you’re on vacation, or you’re a freshman, or you’re a senior, or whatever. It’s okay, because it’s just a phase. And also, it’s okay when your slutty friend does it. She is your favorite friend after all. Because she’s hilarious and shares her stories, and makes her sexuality fun for everyone. She encourages you to do the body shot, or kiss her in public, just this once. Plus, she always has boys around, and that’s just a lot of fun.
But you and your friends do it behind closed doors. You wear your bodycon, or bring the TOFTB, or wear something reaaaaally short, but not all at once. You’re not prostitutes. It’s not that you have a moral opposition to women having sex. Get real. It’s 2014, and you don’t care what anyone does. But the way those slutty girls, the real slutty girls, do it is just gets you all UGHHHH. They just throw themselves at anyone with a dick and a heartbeat. You don’t like every guy in this room, sweetheart! I know you don’t! And would it kill you to cover up a little bit? Don’t you know you actually just look desperate and pathetic? They only want you for one thing, you dirty skank. You’re not even that pretty.
And you start to realize that the immense hatred you feel for this girl kind of resembles envy. It doesn’t make sense. Because you genuinely don’t want to behave in the way that this girl does. You don’t want to be the one who chases him. You live in fear of a guy who only wants you because you were there. You don’t want to have to be naked for a guy to notice you. And you don’t want to be “the favorite” just because you put out. You never want to be the girl without girl friends…or the girl who hangs around dudes, just to be ogled. But there’s one thing you do want, and the “slut” will beat you in getting it every time: attention.
There’s a reason she acts this way. Because it works. And sure, in the long-term, individual men aren’t going to stick around. But in a room full of guys, they’re looking at the one wearing the least to the imagination. And that sucks. We get mad when girls take the easy way out. I put a lot of effort into finding the perfect sexy-yet-tasteful outfit, and it’s not always easy to turn down sex in exchange for self-respect. But you do it, because you have a goal — to sleep with someone who likes to hang out with you during the daytime. It’s just not fair that her goals are met immediately, every time, while you have to wait a few weeks — maybe even months — before meeting a guy who’s worthwhile…a guy who will give you what you want. It makes you feel like you’re less pretty, less noticeable, less desirable. And so, you hate her. You hate her because you feel like she’s cheating the system. She’s fighting dirty to get what you both want, and you’d never play that way, so it’s not fair that she does. And worst of all, it feels like she’s winning, because “honorable” or not, all eyes are on her.
