Amber Rose Dropped a Truth Bomb on Men Who Think Women 'Ask for It'

February 19th 2016

Model Amber Rose, who hosted October's Slutwalk LA, has been an outspoken critic of sexist stereotypes and social media slut shaming. In a segment of "It's Not You, It's Men," Rose voiced the importance of consent and candidly nailed the problem with sexist slut shaming and victim blaming.

Nothing a woman wears, intuits, or does invites sexual attention or nullifies the simple fact that no means no, Rose explained.

"If I'm laying down with a man, butt-naked, and his condom is on, and I say, 'You know what? No. I don't want to do this. I changed my mind,' that means no," She asserted. "That means f-ing no. That's it."

Amber Rose fired back at host Tyrese Gibson, who suggested that certain women give off a vibe that attracts and excuses unwanted sexual attention. "If you see a basketball player, and he's known as a basketball player, when you see him, you'll be like 'yo lets go play ball,'" Gibson said. He continued, "Its an energy that's being sent out there that creates that kind of response."

Amber Rose wasn't having it, and she explained that slut shaming is reinforced by society's sexist assumptions about women and their appearances. "I'm a former slut shamer," she confessed, admitting to calling other women "hoes" in the past before becoming an advocate against slut-shamers.

When co-host Rev. Run asked what she thought of the quote "Dress how you want to be addressed," Rose booed him and pointed out that nothing a woman wears means she wants sexual attention or intercourse.

"If I want to wear a short skirt or a tank top, and I'm at the club and I'm having fun with my friends and I feel sexy, I'm not DTF," Rose explained. She continued, "I'm not 'asking for' nothing."

Slut shaming and Amber Rose both made headlines after a recent Kanye West Twitter outburst, and as ATTN: has reported, many female stars have come forward with their experiences of being slut-shamed and are pushing back against media sexism.
