How to Shame Teenage Girls into Proper Prudeness


Slut-shaming, Australian PSA style! Prison Island's new PSAs against teen sexting relies entirely on convincing teen girls that they'll be ashamed for sending someone "intimate" pictures of themselves. Because of course society's totally innate values of guys being cads and girls being gossips are A-okay and just the way things are.

I found that clip very informative as to why Australians are not often used for voice-over narration.

and I thought it was difficult being a teen 25 years ago…ugh

Admittedly, I am a cad.

@Gef the Talking Mongoose I took CAD in high school, maybe I can translate.

@Gef the Talking Mongoose: What if the guy is a cad AND a gossip?

The answer is the burkha.

@C_Webb: No way. You can still see the sexy eyes. The only solution is a cement coffin.

Why is Justin Bieber so mean?

AUSTRALIAN FOR FEAR.

1) Guys being cads is not A-okay.
2) But it is just the way things are.

We should educate them, too, but it's probably easier to convince teen girls to be less idiotic.

@cory dodt@twitter: Kinda like how women shouldn't get drunk, because then the police might rape them?

hockeymom (#143)

@C_Webb To be fair, if she got drunk, it's not rape-rape.

@cory dodt@twitter Just the way things are! Fantastic! I shall stop agitating for social change, or expecting more from people.

….. Do you have any idea how much bullshit has been perpetrated under the "just the way things are banner?" Think before you type.

This is what happen when you let in people who are linked from Twitter.

@cherrispryte –
you just did a straw man argument – basically, changing the subject to something else and then attacking that instead of his original statement. Cory_dot said "1) guys being cads is not A-okay, 2) but its just the way things are – we should educate them too but its probably easier to convince teen girls to be less idiotic". But you responded "so we should stop agitating for social change, or expecting more from people". That's not what he said. In fact, he said "we should educate them too but its probably easier to convince girls…". The bullshit gets perpetrated regardless. Girls need to be taught that alpha dogs like to sexually humiliate insecure women (especially immature, self-important, status-seeking teenage guys). You'll do better at changing society if you are willing to accept it at its shitty, lame, and unfair face value.

An appeal to dignity in later life might help as well.

There must be some sexting analogue to former Representative Chris Lee.

the dude is totally innocent cuz the fatty 5 (at best) is sending him unsolicited tit pics and, being an 8 or 9, he's tired of the uggos doing anything they can to get his attention. he's obviously justified in broadcasting her pathetic dirty flirt attempt.
