Name slurring for women
I am sick and tired of women talking shit and berating other women. I always hear the oh so common taunts of "slut" whore" "cunt" or my favorites "fat" and "ugly. Women love to gossip and talk shit about other women. We are trained to do so by our society that wants women to be competitive and undermine each other so that we never form a sisterhood and overthrow the patriarchy's power. In other words, constantly using these terms makes women sound stupid and petty. So here is a short list of commonly used slander terms and why they do not work.
Slut- This term is commonly used to demean a woman that is not liked. The term is supposed to hit home because it is saying that the woman is sexually loose and promiscuous. What it shows about the person saying it is that they disapprove of women being sexually free and having guilt free consequence free sex. So basically, people who shout slut are abstinence only education pushing Republicans, or really unaware democrats. Do not use this slur if you want to sound any older or educated than a 15 year old high schooler.
Whore- Technically this term is used for a woman who gets paid to perform sexual favors, but it is also used as a variation of "slut". You sound just as stupid saying it, especially if you mean it as "slut" which means that the women are not getting paid for their sexual promiscuity. It is usually used to be a tad more insulting than slut but either way the intent is the same, trying to make someone you do not like feel like a piece of shit. Not nice and not effective, whore calling only begets more whore calling.
Fat- Probably my favorite. Comes in various names and forms, but basically it serves the purpose of making the person being called aware of the fact that their body is not acceptable. Again, the person saying ti sounds more like an idiot because they buy into that whole "skinny is the only way to go" mantra. I went off about people making statements and generally being assholes about weight here but let me reiterate that no one has the right to judge another's body, and if you do , you are an asshole to the 8th degree!
Ugly - This one actually makes me laugh when people say it because beauty is a matter of opinion, and when people call someone else ugly, they really show how ugly they are on the inside!
Cunt- The alpha and omega of insults hurled at women. It is a derogatory term for vagina, basically connoting some type of dirtiness or lack of sanitation. I mean what better way to insult a woman than by claiming her vagina is dirty? But this insult also shows the mentality of most people which is A. women are nothing more than a vagina B. women have to keep said vagina squeaky lemony clean all the time
All these insults for women really show how sexist and even misogynistic our society can be. I mean these insults are meant not to simply just insult, but to demean and destroy self confidence. I cannot even think of one male intended slur that does even close to the same thing
