My post about the Secretly Pregnant Sluts show received this comment:
However, I don’t think you’re supposed to refer to a woman who married as a ‘slut’. Unless, of course, somebody other then the husband is the daddy.
Referring to married women who become preggers as ‘sluts’ is jr. high school-level rhetoric. She’s supposed to put out- remember?
This made me realize that I need to write up a page about the actual nature of sluts. There’s two things that I have realized about sluts:
- Sluts aren’t limited to one night stand sluts. Serial LTR sluts are sluts too.
- Once a slut, always a slut.
Usually, when we think of a “slut” we think of a woman who has a lot of one night stands. This definition of “slut” is insufficient. The preferred form of promiscuity for most women is serial monogamy or serial LTRs (long term relationships). There is nothing “better” or “more moral” about being a serial LTR slut than a ONS slut. (Dalrock has done a lot of work explaining how “no sex before monogamy”, the idea that serial LTR sluts use to justify their promiscuity, is not a moral statement.) There is no real difference between the ONS slut and the serial LTR slut. Often times whether a woman is a ONS slut or a serial LTR slut is dependent on whether a man she has banged wants to continue banging her. In many cases that’s the difference so there is no real line between the ONS slut and the serial LTR slut.
Being a slut can’t be erased at all. Lots of sluts think that either being married or “repenting” to Jesus will make it so they were never a slut. This is not the case. Marriage is no guarantee that a woman will stop being a slut. The divorce rate and that fact that women file most divorces alone is proof of that. “Repenting” to Jesus also doesn’t make a difference. Jesus forgives sins. He does not erase them from history like some sort of cosmic magician. For Jesus to forgive a person’s sins, a person must truly repent and not just be going to Church to find a chump to marry for the pretense of respectability.
Yes, more women are sluts than you realized. And they don’t stop being sluts either.
