    I think we can all agree that rape is wrong/horrible/etc etc. But the piece that seems to be missing from this dialog is it is not ok to slut shame a woman even if she HASN’T been raped. If a woman makes a decision to go home with a strange man and have a one night stand, that is ok too. It’s her body, her life, her decision. You might not make the same choice- but you are not her. So don’t avoid slut shaming because the woman might have been taken advantage of- avoid slut shaming because you are making an ethical judgement about someone that you don’t have a right to.
