Sexual Stigma

Leave a comment

So in class we were talking about how guys are seen by society as sexually aggressive and women are seen as submissive. This goes hand-in-hand with the stigma women get from expressing themselves openly when it comes to sex. A guy gets congratulated by his friends when he has sex, and a woman has to endure judgement and resentment from her friends. For years now I’ve seen girls get the third degree for talking about having sex, and it baffles me that we still have this problem in 2015. We’re okay with so many other things, yet we get judged for one of the most basic human instincts? I’ve always tried to be nonjudgmental about people’s personal lives, and I don’t understand why others can’t extend the same courtesy. It’s a personal matter, and it isn’t anyone else’s business what they do with their bodies or their personal lives.
