Has The Gay Community Got A Problem With Slut Shaming?

“The guy gets all the bump, the more he can score. A girl can do the same, yet you call her a whore” sang Christina Aguilera way back in her early noughties classic, “Can’t Hold Us Down”.

She was singing about something still very relevant today, the fact women are shamed for sleeping with more than one person, while men are celebrated for doing the exact same thing. However, is this a problem in the gay community? YouTube sensation John Bird thinks so as shown in his latest video, ‘Gay Boy Problems – Slut Shaming’.

Within the video, Bird calls out the gay community for the fact that we are, in all actuality, a little bit self-loathing. Why are we so obsessed with what is going on in everyone else’s bed? Why are we so hung up on judging each other whilst we go on about equality and pride?

“There is nothing wrong with having a bit of fun if you are single” the vlogger argues and he has a point, there isn’t! If you can pull, then why not? A marginalised group should know better than to marginalise each other.
