The past few weeks I’ve seen all over social media name calling of high profile public figures, most recently, “She’s A Whore” has been all over my Facebook.

I admit it, I’ve heard women name call each other all my life. It’s so common that now at 36 years old, I believe I hear it so much, I’m numb to it. But I don’t want to be. I don’t want to be ok with hearing ugly and vile words about other women. I want to stand against it, loud and proud.

Can we stop for a second and think about this rationally…..

She’s A Whore

Say that out loud. Don’t just read it. Don’t just type it. SAY it.

How is this statement ok? Why is typing that acceptable? And for God’s sake: how do you know if she is?!? Were you there? Did you witness the unmentionable acts in question?

Honestly- what gives you, me, or anyone else that right to label another individual?

You know what else she “is”? She’s a human, she’s a friend, she’s a daughter, she’s a grand-daughter, and chances are: she’s someone’s mama. Feel good about yourself still?

I really just have to ask, is saying “She’s A Whore” ok? Have we gotten so used to the ugly we say about others that we turn a blind eye to it? I believe we have. We make these vicious claims about others without even batting an eyelash. If that were you, your daughter, your sister, your mother, or your best friend – would you be ok with someone saying that? I’m gonna bet dollars to donuts you would not be ok and you would come at those people balls to the wall.

Why can’t we do that for other women?

What if we all stood up for another when she was under attack?

What if we said: NO MORE to ugly rumors?

she's a whore

You aren’t helping

You are adding to the problem. As a woman, I can tell you¬†honestly: we suffer enough from beating our own selves up with hate talk, we don’t need you to do it also.

Your hate added to our own negative talk is unnecessary.

STOP

I challenge you to stop the name calling of others. Today.

Don’t give me that, “well it’s true” stuff either. So? Your point? What about you is true that others have said but it still hurt your feelings?

Think about it.

Women – I’m talking to you first.

You want men to stop talking down to us? Then stop doing it to other women first and show men we won’t accept it about ourselves or other women. It’s a little double sided if we don’t want a man to call us a whore but we will throw it around like confetti about another woman.

Get Mad

It’s time we get mad, we become fierce, and we fight for those who need us. We have to stand up for each other without joining the crowd throwing stones.

Stop being afraid of making someone mad at you if you don’t join in on the ridiculing of another. Let them get mad! Buy them a cape then they can be Super Mad.

Who qualifies?

Everyone qualifies. Name calling is not ok. Keep the ugly off social media. So what if it’s a public figure, a celebrity, an actress, or a musician.

SO WHAT. It’s not your right to be cruel to others, you weren’t given the title of Almighty.

Change starts with you.

Change starts with me.

I’ll change, will you?

xoxo,
