In Defense Of The Slut Phase

At one point or another, we’ve all said it. We hate sluts. We hate the girl that shamelessly flirts with every guy she lays her eyes on, wears shirts just a little too low-cut, and rolls into her Tuesday morning 8AM class at 8:15 with make-up that looks like she just banged Ke$ha. The worst part about her? She’s fully aware of what she’s doing, but she just doesn’t give a shit. What a bitch.

How dare she? How dare she even think about looking at Bryan when she KNOWS you took him to a date function last week? There couldn’t possibly be a reason that she’s going out of her way to ruin your life. Surely it can’t be that her boyfriend just broke up with her and she’s sad, or that her dad left for a business trip and forgot to call on her birthday, or that the guy she’s had her eye on just updated his Facebook profile to “in a relationship.” Nope, surely this girl is just a homewrecking slut who has nothing better to do than sleep her way through every fraternity on campus, regardless of the guys’ relationship statuses. She enjoys destroying lives. She gets an immense amount of joy from seeing the look on your face when you find out she ruined your chance with the hottie from bio who was probably supposed to be your future husband (or at least your formal date). Right?

As easy as it is to continue believing that, maybe it’s time that we all agree to take a step back before we begin the firing squad. It’s one thing to hate the girl who’s always after someone else’s boyfriend, but as for the girls just going through their slut phases? Let’s cut them a little bit of slack. After all, didn’t you appreciate it when your besties didn’t judge you when you laid in the floor drinking bottle after bottle of Barefoot, only to go out and MO every guy in sight after you saw your almost-boyfriend out with a girl from your rival sorority at Starbucks? Cliches become cliches for a reason, and we all know from experience that the old saying, “The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else” rings infinitely true. Sometimes, you’ve just got to do what who you’ve got to do to make it through a hard time, regardless of what other people are going to think about you.

Sure, there are more appropriate ways to deal with the rough times in your life: alcohol, Xanax, partying, fro-yo, online shopping — the list goes on, but for some, the only thing filling enough is the attention you get from the slut phase. When we go through the slut phase, it’s because for some reason, in some aspect of our lives, we’re feeling alone. Even though we’ve tried to fill that space with cosmo after cosmo, there are some emotional holes that even a Birkin can’t fill. Enter the slut phase.

Eventually, these girls will realize that their cheating, scumbag ex-boyfriends aren’t worth their time and tears, and they’ll come to their senses, and when they do, they’ll need a solid group of girlfriends there to accept them without judgment. This is where my proposition comes in: let’s abolish the judgment that goes along with the slut phase. There may be something negative to be said for the slut phase, but there’s something worse to be said for girls who don’t have each others’ backs. This is the girl code we’re talking about. Honor it, support each other, and give the girls going through the slut phase a break.

    Thank fucking goodness for this. I said it once, and I’ll say it again. We’re all sluts, so shut the fuck up because there’s a lot of banging to be done. Wouldn’t everyone just be happier if everyone got (safely) laid on the regular?

    Fuck slut-shaming is what I have to stay. Who gives a fuck if it’s a phase or a lifestyle? If you’re so insecure that knowing a girl sleep with a lot of guys upsets you, that’s your problem. As long as she’s not malicious and trying to hurt anyone, more power to her.
