Barack Obama says women should not be shamed for having sex while men get a pat on the back




President Obama just condemned an ancient double-standard. "We need to change the attitude that punishes women for their sexuality," he said Tuesday, "but gives men a pat on the back for theirs."


I never truly understood that whole thing about the more lovers a man has, the more he should be looked up to and the more a woman has, the more we should look down on her.

Why are women shamed for enjoying sex but men are not?

I honestly couldn't tell you. It may stem back from the traditional family values where women were meant to be pure and "boys will be boys" and such.

In any event, I don't believe in slut-shaming. If some chick wants to bang 5 dudes in an alley, go for it sister...just make sure you get tested.

I don't think its for enjoying it.

The stigma comes down to the basic premise that the man makes the move for sex. If his advances are accepted often, he is a stud. If a woman agrees to advances often, she is a ...promiscious

I disagree with it. I think we all really need to get over these hangups.

A key that opens many locks is a master key; a lock opened by many keys is a #ty lock.


But really, it's a stupid double standard propagated by the idea that women should be put and good and men should be virile and go out and woo women, but the ideas are mutually exclusive.

Did Obama just find his old collection of 90's rap and R&B?

This issue has been talked about and sung about for awhile now.


But its cute Obama wants to feel 90s cool again.

Here here . Always use protection.
And good judgement.

Sex keeps you happy by releasing serotonin. It keeps you healthy it's cardio.
It keeps you closer as a couple.

Taking aim at a number of gender inequalities, the president called himself a feminist.


From your source.

I guess this is what we should expect from our 21st century leaders.

Too bad we couldn't have expected it from our 20th century leaders. Gender inequality was certainly a well-known problem then.

Why is the POTUS opining on this topic? Who cares what he thinks about the topic? Is THAT what we pay the President to do? Lecture us on proper sex etiquette? Good Lord. Get the hook!

Think he's a bit behind on that one. LOL!!

I would like to know who's counting?

The only people who know how many lovers anyone has should be the people

themselves ......NO ONE ELSE's BUSINESS

Everything.

Why do people need labels of any sort?

I prefer to shame the man for being a slut.

It's a tad old school, you can't name and shame unless it is talked about....by anyone.
If sex is consensual, it's fine but should be something private by both parties, and should stay between them.
If they want to yabber about it, that's their business, but it's also something of a betrayal if the other party does not want to be part of the discussion.

If that is how the leader of the United States wants to 'self-identify" as, then he is welcome to do so.

I'm also just as free to think that it is unnecessary, stupid and politicizes equality.

Or don't we have that yet?

Women are much more sexually active then men...give me a break...not just in the act of sex, but flirting, dating, romance, etc...but definitely with sex.

Men are looked down upon if they treat women like objects and can't hold a relationship. There are lots of men who respect their male friends if they hear stories about treating a lady nicely. If you have what it takes to make a woman happy your male friends will respect you and admire you. Randomly getting laid is just a high five or a cheers. Sometimes your guy friends will tease you if that's all you got and you didn't get to take her out for dinner the next night. As in you preformed poorly during the one night stand.

Women should be allowed to make decisions for themselves, and not let the media or government control them. It also completely ruins the intimacy if you and our partner are bragging about how many different people you've slept with.
