Are there moments when any of you think that you are viewed as sl*%, wh0#%?
A friend of mine said that my AP probably does not see more than the sit-by-the-sideline-whore. The term hurt me and it made me think for a moment, If I indeed am seen like that. I could go and expose my entire sex life to everyone and though it may seem like a lot of sexual partners to me, it may not be for others and vice versa. Am I a skank because I slept with AP? I am lucky to say, all the partners I've had (well those, I consented to), I have loved. I have kissed 5 men in my life and fewer than that I have been intimate with. So, what am I?
The other issue is that I get men coming to me and really looking at me in a way that makes me feel dirty. I am getting frustrated by labels that hurt my self concept and the male attention I get, that is both unwarranted and unwanted. I understand tha tI have some physical features that intrigue men, but some assume I am easy based on that. Some women at work have made comments about me that describe as a highly sexualized deviant and all because of the way I look and dress.
So, I know it is part insecurities, part the labels women are given and the attention I garner...but in the end is tis truly how women are seen?
