A response: “Do I Look Like A Slut?”


This week, YouTuber Hannah Wittons’ video “Do I Look Like A Slut?” went viral. Witton starts off by talking about how when she gets ready for a night out with her friends, one always seems to ask if they look like a slut. “When we ask our friends, do I look like a slut? What are we comparing ourselves to?” Witton asks.

Witton goes on to show responses that she received when she asked her following on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook what they think is a slut. Some responses are progressive and others are not. But in the end, Witton comes to a conclusion that I can agree with. Witton said, “It’s my opinion that there’s no such thing as a slut. People’s sexual behavior is none of your business.”

It doesn’t matter if someone has had twenty sexual partners or hasn’t had any at all. If it doesn’t affect you on a deep personal level, then it is none of your business. Everyone should be able to make choices about their sex life without the ‘slut police’ parading about judging everyone.

Judging someone by what they’re wearing says less about that person and more about you. It’s always confused me when feminists tell other women and girls what to wear in order to not appeal to the male gaze.

But what you’re wearing shouldn’t have to do with getting attention from men. It should be about what you want to wear in order to feel comfortable – and hell, even sexy, if that’s what you want. It’s not about what you wear, but instead the intent behind your reason for wearing it.

Witton says it best when she states, “We also can’t determine whether or not someone is a slut from the way that they dress. Because as much as you like to think it, there is no correlation. And also, there’s no such thing as a slut.”
