Campaign to end "slut-shaming"



There have been a few viral videos on YouTube in support of the campaign to end "slut-shaming".  A Dr. (heh) Laura Berman writes about the effort in the following article:

The latest YouTube video to go viral doesn’t feature Justin Bieber or a keyboard-playing cat. In fact, it’s nothing more than an intelligent and sophisticated 13-year-old discussing a topic very near and dear to women everywhere: Slut-shaming.

However, there is also an effort to shame public urinals. It seems that men standing to pee is a sign of dominance and exploitation. And feminists are specifically offended about a urinal in Germany that is shaped like a mouth. (Which begs the question - how do feminists know what is in a Men's Restroom? Perverts.)

Once upon a time the Rolling Stones lamented that they couldn’t get no satisfaction. Today, the Rolling Stones Fan Museum in Germany has similar woes, since it’s under fire from feminists who have taken issue with the museum’s urinals.

I pretty much support any effort to eliminate shame. Hopefully, one day all American women will be shameless.
