Debate Rounds (5)
prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.
Some examples are, when you hear the word rape, what popped into your mind? Unfortunately most of you if not all thought of men. Well a dear friend of mine who is a male was raped by a female. How often do you hear of that? not often probably.
When you hear the word(s) slut, whore, prostitute, ect.... what do you think of first? Again most of you if not all thought of females. I don't blame you, I mean a credible resource that a lot of my peers use have the definitions of those which I will share with you.
1. an immoral or dissolute woman; prostitute.
2. Obsolete. a dirty, slovenly woman.
Whore: 1. a woman who engages in promiscuous sexual intercourse, usually for money; prostitute; harlot; strumpet.
Prostitute: a woman who engages in sexual intercourse for money; whore; harlot.
Males were mentioned not once in these even though we have male strippers, male prostitutes, and "players" who are a stereotype of a male slut.
I don't think I should be called a slut/whore/prostitute just because I am female. But yet everyday I school I am called vulgar names. When I don't answer they tell me I have no sense of humor. Actually I love to laugh and have a really good sense of humor, but when I personally am put down because I have a vagina I'm not going to laugh. when you continuously degrade me and tell me I will amount to nothing but being good in bed (yes I have been told that at 15) it takes all my will not to cry. How would men feel if you had your future planned out based on your sex? you can be anything you want, but if I want to be the president of the United States? what are the odds of that right now? Thanks for reading this :)

'The brunette sat on the bridge.'
There, point proved, neither of those sound racist, sexist or ridiculous.
