Listen Up: Selena Gomez Is No Slut

I enjoy the fact that Selena Gomez is still hanging on to her pure-as-the-driven-snow Disney image, in a lot of ways (yes, I know ‘Come and Get It’ was anything but, but you know what I mean). What I don’t particularly like is the fact that while she’s proud of her status as a lady your family might like to meet, she simultaneously shuns those that are anything other than that.

From Teen Vogue:

“So a part of you is broken when that’s gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you’re just like, forget it – I can do anything I want.

[But] I’ve tried it, and I’ve never been that girl. I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night.”

Well, that’s cool, Selena. I’m with you on that – I have never had a one night stand and never could. I’m too emo for that shit, so I feel you. However, I know people who are into more casual encounters and while it’s not my style, I won’t really hate on anyone whose it is.

Before y’all hop on the Feminazi train, I’m not at all saying that Selena is slut-shaming or openly bashing anyone, but unfortunately the implication in quotes like this – because of how women are viewed in society at large – is that it’s good and virtuous to be a prim and proper young lady and not so much to be anything else, because that just makes you a slut, and ew, who wants to be a slut?

I’m so torn on this! It’s not like she hasn’t had her share of feminist dialogue before…

  • jennifer, amidst all the jealous, nasty uncalled for bullshit you spout out, you do make some good points.
    I like your stand here. dis bitch got no idea who feels what as a result of their actions. some chicks feel incredibly liberated and powerful when they’re in the “player” position, yet she implies all women feel “broken” and loose when they have more than one partner within 6 months or whatever it is she’s implying.
    whatta fake ass hoe.

    • I don’t understand why the concept of “self-respect” has anything to do with wanting to have sex?? Like, I respect myself, hence why I want to have an orgasm tonight, you feel me?? Go get your jollies as much as you want, bb.
