Women are taught that being a respectable classy lady is exemplar and anything else is being a slut. People believe that women can either be pretty or smart, or sexual or studious. They do not believe a woman can be both. But, women can be both smart and pretty and know how to party and club and be studious and productive. Women are more than they are viewed as by society. Women are complex human beings who cannot be compartmentalized. All women have different characteristics, emotions, thoughts, feelings, dreams, and desires. Women are not simple so they cannot be categorized. Women are reduced to their sexuality. Society views a woman 's worth as their sex lives and how they present themselves in terms of dress.

Guys who slut shame look cool and get a lot of attention. It is okay for a boy to slut shame because he does not get judged but he destroys a girl. Females are supposed to be empowered, confident, and open about their bodies. Girls should not be afraid of their bodies or their sexuality. Boys should not be predators. Asking young girls to take sexy photos, or secretly taking sexy photos or videos, and sharing them widely is predatory. Mothers need to teach their sons how to respect women.

Boys cannot always be excused. Boys are supposed to be dominant but it seems as if though women are stronger because they go through more and boys are always being excused for everything. The law and society is always in the side of men. We have grown so much as a country and women have more rights but our roots of sexism and rape culture will never be gone. It seems as if though women have fought so hard just to take tiny steps. On the other hand, a man can take tiny steps and gain so much.
