One of our worse social double standards is the so-called “walk of shame.” It’s awesome, bro, when a man returns home the next morning wearing the same clothes he did the night before, but when a woman does it, with her high heels in hand? “Oh my god, what a slut.”
We should be proud — you go, girl, for having sex — but instead, they’re routinely slut-shamed, and Amber Rose, who’s hosting her very own Slut Walk in Los Angeles, has had enough. She teamed up with Funny or Die to imagine a world in which women are celebrated for having a one night stand. There’s even a cameo from Orange Is the New Black‘s Matt McGorry, who wrote on Facebook, “This video is not encouraging women or other genders to be ‘promiscuous,’ it’s encouraging a society where we don’t judge women and call them ‘hoes’ for the same reason that we’d give a guy a pat on the back and call them a ‘pimp.’ You don’t have to want one night stands for yourself to honor and respect a(nother) women’s choice to.”
