Jenna Marbles made me sad

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m actually kind of disappointed in Jenna Marbles. In her latest YouTube video, she expresses her opinion on “sluts” and lists things she ‘doesn’t understand’ about them. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Jenna and I think her videos are really great, but watching this one made me cringe. I can’t believe she’d slut shame like this.

Whether you’re a girl or a guy, who and how many people you sleep with is your own business and 100% okay if it’s consensual and safe. Nobody should be hated on or discriminated against because they simply enjoy sex.

One thought on “Jenna Marbles made me sad”

  1. I agree with that last paragraph you said completely, but there is a huge difference between being safe and responsible and then running about and banging numerous guys and getting pregnant then being unable to take care of a baby. And you can’t have a society that looks fondly upon limitless promiscuous sex and have a society that is also functional in that sense (as in, without irresponsible girls and guys spreading diseases and bastard children). And it is also two very different things to actually enjoy casual sex and to have casual sex only because it IS so accepted in society and almost is a “coming of age” thing, and pressures younger girls into feeling like they NEED to do it, which isn’t true at all if they aren’t old enough to assess the risk factors present. So while “slut-shaming” may not be the most morally correct thing to do, I feel like it actually does serve a purpose if you think about it in from a different perspective because it’s not as much the principle as it is the reality of the situation. I’m not saying it’s wrong at all. I practiced it for several years, hahaha…. but yeah. It’s all in the way you look at it. Plus I’m sure the culture in different areas has a lot to do with it. Just a thought/different opinion to think about 🙂
