Slut-Shaming (2019)

LBD copy

Did you know there are cases of men being let off from rape because the girl was dressed like she was ‘asking for it’? What kind of message does it send? Are girls really responsible for the behaviour of boys? Should girls be the ones who have to change?

This one is close to my heart. I think girls should be able to wear what they want, where the want and when they want and feel safe. There are many people who don’t believe it’s women who should have to change to fit around the tolerances of men. Many whom I have known through friends, or family and also the workplace all agree that it’s the women’s responsibility to ensure they are not ‘asking for it’. It’s only when I write it out and make some art it really makes me realize just ho bizarre and demeaning it is for men. A unique perspective reveals a point left blindly obvious. The point that:

‘…men are so hopeless in controlling their sexual conduct that it is women who have to take the temptations away by modifying themselves and presentation’.

Is this weird to anyone else or could I be the crazy one here?
