Are You Being Slut-Shamed? Here Are 8 Ways To Tell

It comes in many forms. You're asking for none of them.

Slut-shaming can be obvious in some ways and subtle in others, but it all comes down to judgment of women's sexuality and circumstances, even circumstances that we have no control over. For many of us, we deal with everyday forms of slut-shaming that can be difficult to recognize and call out, which "True Life: I'm Being Slut Shamed" recently examined:

As "True Life" showed, subtle forms of shaming are just as bad as the overt kind. It's important be able to identify the less obvious signs that it's happening, and know that they're still not OK. Here's what to look out for:

  1. Partners act entitled to details of your sexual history

    As long as you're being honest with romantic partners about getting tested and using protection, you really don't have to name names or magic numbers. They have no right to demand every detail about your past if you're not comfortable divulging it. The answer is often irrelevant and will make you both feel bad.

    You don't have to hide or be ashamed of your number of partners, but don't feel bullied into sharing it either. You could be a virgin and it'd still be none of their business.

  2. Your friends think it's OK to tease you about it

    Of course you want to confide in your friends about your escapades. But be sure to recognize if their interest turns into a spectator sport. They may not mean to be a bad friend, but are likely dealing with their own sexual hangups. The bottom line is your number is not a game, so don't let anyone keep score of it.

  3. You get comments about your sexual history based on what you're wearing

    You're confident in your body and secure when showing it off, but it frequently puts a slut-shaming target on your exposed skin. Try to call it out as it happens, reminding others (and yourself) that you can wear whatever you want.

  4. You're told going on lots of dates means you're having lots of sex

    It's OK to date multiple people, but for anyone to think that you hook up with every single person you date is unfair and pretty intrusive.

  5. Your guy friends assume you want to hook up with them

    He may not be a bad dude, but ignorance combined with horniness is no excuse. If he acts entitled to his "turn," then clearly communicate that if he really valued your friendship, then he wouldn't broach the subject that way or make those kinds of assumptions about you.

  6. A partner judges your "experience" based on your performance

    Let's face it, we all want to be good in bed -- but not too good. We worry that pulling out all the stops could seem like a mark of promiscuity instead of sexual compatibility. Everybody has a past, so don't put up with anyone who makes you feel bad about yours; it's not your fault if it made you awesome.

  7. Someone makes fun of you for wearing that outfit yesterday

    It can be especially insulting if you actually put effort into getting ready that morning.

  8. You're rejected based on presumptions about your sexual history

    It's not right or fair, but the reality is that people can act like jerks when they can't comprehend choices that don't match up with their own. Some slut-shaming is accidental and worth having a conversation with the person about, but straight-up rejection based on judgements about your sexuality? That person isn't worth another second of your time.
