This picture crawled its way into my FB feed yesterday. I find it offensive for two reasons.
First is the painfully obvious slut-shaming. Damn it world, get it through your head – a womans’ worth is not linked to her sex life!
The second is a bit more subtle, and a lot more worrying to me. The comparison of a woman to a free sample doesn’t just reflect on a womans’ value. It also says something about how she can be treated. It insinuates that she can be taken any time, by anyone, and no-one will mind. THAT, I find frightening.
