Daydream Nation on Slut Shaming
Jenny: [Seeing Caroline in the restroom] Ugh, slut.
Caroline Wexler: What did you call me?
Jenny: I think I just called you a slut, slut.
Caroline Wexler: Why?
Jenny: Because everyone knows that you've banged, like, forty different guys since you came here.
Caroline Wexler: Really? Forty?

Caroline Wexler: Okay, let's just say that I have banged forty guys. What's the problem? You're just jealous because you've been, ah, brainwashed by puritanical assholes who think sex is a sin. But then again, your, ah, little gerbil-sized brain has been reprogrammed by the media to believe that sex is the be-all, end-all. So now you're stuck, right? 'Cause on the one hand you love to fuck, but afterwards you feel overwhelmed by guilt & you're not sure why. Maybe it's because sex is neither as good or as evil as you've built it up to be.
Jenny: [hurt pause] Shut up, slut!
Caroline Wexler: Jenny, seriously, listen to me! The highlight of your entire life is gonna be your yearbook photo.

You're gonna spend the first half of your life planning your wedding & you're gonna spend the second half regretting it. & if I were you - & thank god I'm not , 'cause you have terrible hair - I would stop & I would reconsider your whole value system, because everything you know is wrong. .

I really want to stop shaving my legs...
misswednesdayaddams: …because I like hairy legs, and I don’t see why I need to shave, like I’ve been told my entire life. But, I’m worried about how people will react. (I’ve got very dark hair, it will be immediately noticeable.) Any advice on how to put up with the jerks? Hair is beautiful. And if anyone has any beef just tell them that.
