Slut-Shaming Feminism: Why You Should Shut Up about Melania's Photos

In general, liberals love to claim that they are taking the true moral high road. They say that they are more mature and evolved in thought than conservatives. They call out the hypocrisy of conservatives touting “family values” and “morality” when discussing sexuality and gender politics, all while said conservatives get caught neck deep in the very “immoral” things they had been chastising. An anti-abortion senator will be found out to have paid for the abortion of an out-of-wedlock fetus to a prostitute. An anti-gay governor will be found to have a room full of on-call Rent Boys and a pool full of floppy dildos that he swims in a la Scrooge McDuck every night. Liberals eat this up and are all about talking about how terrible conservatives are. Well, given how they’ve treated Melania Trump thus far, it’s time that liberals shut the fuck up.
You guys suck.
After Melania Trump repeated Michelle Obama’s speech at the Republican National Convention, most of us were laughing, but quite a few people had straight up angrections™ over the incident. The tweetstorm was a maelstrom of people calling her everything from slut to skank to bitch. Not cool. Be mad that she lifted someone else’s hard work. Act incredulous that the same words spoken from Michelle Obama that garnered disgusting hate from conservatives now garnered praise and respect for someone espousing virtue. Joke that the Trump campaign thought they could explain away the plagiarism by quoting My Little Pony in their explanation. But the vitriol exacted at Melania Trump is ridiculous.
Now it comes out that she did numerous nude photo shoots 20 years ago. Now the same thing is happening. People are calling her slutty, calling her a bitch, yadda yadda. I don’t get it, though. These are the same people who admonished conservatives for spewing hate for women who were nude models and strippers. These people would celebrate anyone who was “brave” enough to get in front of a camera with nothing on but a smile. Now all of a sudden, Melania Trump is a slut for doing her job? She was a model in Europe. Europeans generally don’t have such a laughable hang-up about nudity that Americans do. Melania was a European model. She has a bunch of nude photos. Clutch the pearls. The fact that I’m hearing conservatives say that what she did was a “celebration of the human body” and that people should be ashamed of themselves for admonishing her for it, and that I’M AGREEING WITH THEM, shows how much liberals have lost the “moral high ground”.
Conservatives are far from off the hook in this instance, though. Let us not forget that it was the New York Post, a conservative rag, that re-published these photos, complete with an almost congratulatory article. The New York Post, who was silent when someone made a cartoon depicting Michelle Obama as a pre-op trans woman, attacked Malia Obama for going to Lollapalooza instead of the DNC, who derided one of her first national speeches, who spend more time talking about her outfits than her food and exercise initiatives, are now propping up Melania Trump as “brave” for her nudes. And let us not forget the new Republican platform that pretty much equates pornography and the adult entertainment industry with some harbinger of demise of human civilization. If what they say is true, turn the mere thought of a nip slip would cause Mt. Everest to blow its top and implode in on itself simultaneously, all while the fallen rise from the dead to consume the living. But Melania Trump's completely nude photo shoots are Judy fine? I'm sure Kentucky has banned art installations with less nudity than her pics. But still, conservatives who lost their shit when Michelle released a photo of herself in a sleeveless dress are all of a sudden coming to Melania Trump’s entirely naked defense. I throw all of the shade, and the lamp to which it is attached. These people have no legs for any of their arguments.
It looks like the New York Post baited libs to make negative comments about Melania Trump by posting these 20 year old photos, and libs took the bait. However, instead of showing who on which side of the political spectrum holds the high ground in the realm of society’s idea of “morality”, they’ve only exposed that both ends of the spectrum are wallowing in the mud in order to take down the other side. Also, everyone in America has a very contorted view of morality.

20 years ago, Melania Trump had a job, and she did it. Sadly, there are no pictures of Michelle Obama practicing law. Bottom line, liberal or conservative, if you are going after a presidential candidate’s family members previous deeds to bolster your argument, you’re pretty much garbage. You're both wallowing in the button of the outhouse, pointing at each other and shouting, "Look at all the shit in his face!" Stop slut shaming Melania Trump.
Definitely laugh at the plagiarism, though. That shit is funny.
