Often, parents or social groups even put pressure on girls to wait for marriage, despite what their bodies are telling them to do.

Slut shaming occurs within many different facets of everyday life. ”These questions, to the asker, might seem totally natural, but to the woman they send a singlemessage — this is your fault.
The fact that slut shaming takes so many different forms makes it particularly insidious. Other methods include making deprecating comments about how a woman is dressing.
There’s still a strong culture of genteelness that pervades our society, and with it come expectations that girls won’t “give it up,” that they won’t sleep around and that they’ll guard their bodies carefully.If that lesson wasn’t clear enough after the loss, it should be now based on Ashford’s dismal fundraising efforts – when your fundraising is compared to Omaha’s panhandling, you know there’s a problem.Now, voters are starting to get a realistic view of the 2018 race, and it does not bode well for Democrats: Ashford’s constant pandering and flip-flopping on positions, his inability to raise money, and the result of the Mayor’s race earlier this year mean the Democrat Establishment’s favored candidate is going to have a rough time.Note that these types of comments are very different from a parent expressing concern over the way a child is dressed, or explaining to a young girl how such modes of dress might be perceived, even if that isn’t acceptable.Still, parents too must be careful not to engage in victim-blaming behavior.
