So, it would seem that a lot of people are truly in shock about Miley Cyrus's performance at the VMAs. Okay, I admit, I thought it sucked. Her tongue thing just freaks me out and I don't get the bears at all. (The reality is, though, she is 20 years old. She's not a kid. She can do what she wants. Get the fuck over it)
But am I truly that shocked? Umm, no. Not really.
And yet, all over facebook, that seems to be all people are talking about. I've seen letters written to daughters, 10 things you need to tell your teenage daughter, blah blah blah.
I was even listening to the radio and one of the hosts said that she was just out on stage, being a whore. Hmm, I must have missed the part where she had sex with someone, on stage, and got paid for it? Others call her a slut and a skank. She was being "sexual" yes, but ... does that automatically make her a slut or a skank? If she can grind against Robin Thicke and be called a slut, then he should get called a slut for ... DOING THE SAME DAMN THING.
But that brings me to my point. It's a okay for guys to express THEIR sexuality, but not girls. hey, I grew up in church, where girls couldn't show a knee or the guys would be drooling fools! Boys are run by their penis and they can't control themselves! So we girls have to make sure we help them out! Cause they can't help themselves! So when a guy wants to act like a, well, slut, it's accepted. He can screw as many girls as he wants and gets called, "the man", while a girl, who wants to sleep with who she chooses, gets called a slut for it.
Why is it that females can't be sexual too, without being shamed for it?
I don't get that.
My husband was talking about how these x disney girls all turned out to be skanks. He mentioned Vanessa Hudgens. Ohhhhh, let me guess! She's a skank, because she took a nude photo of herself and sent it to her BOYFRIEND, at the time, and somehow it got out?
Alright, seriously... Seriously?
Take away, girls, don't take racy photos of yourself and give them to your SO. I guess that makes you a skank.
You have to save your v card till marriage. There are balls and purity rings centered around YOUR virginity. (don't see the same for guys. wonder why THAT is). If you give that away, you lose some of your worth and you're suddenly a slut, while the guy gets a pat on the back.
I remember watching this pastor talking to a bunch of teens. He was talking about purity and "saving yourself". He talked to the girls and mentioned how, when you walk down that aisle, you want to wear a white dress... it shows your purity, your innocence, your commitment. Shit like that. I started crying. Because, when someone steals your innocence, you feel dirty and you feel like you lose your worth, too. It's like a girls worth is tied up in her damn hymen.
It's ridiculously stupid and I'm tired of it. Sick and damn tired of it.
