The Jewish Perspective On "Slut-Shaming"

When the Romans tried to crush the Jews they did three things. First torture us into denying our faith. Second enslave the men. Third, sell the women for sex. See below.

<<After Rome crushed Judaea in the Jewish-Roman wars, many thousands of civilians were publicly tortured to death in failed attempts to make them deny their faith, many men were taken into slavery for use in forced labour (e.g. the Corinth canal), and many young women were taken into slavery and placed in brothels.>>

Why these 3 specifically? To deny any possibility of spirituality. 

Where there is no God except a man posing as one; and there is no work except what a master tells you to do; and there is no personal privacy, the soul is crushed like a flower cut off from its roots. Maybe from the outside it looks functional, but inside it is vacant.

Therefore, from a Jewish point of view, liberal feminist rants about "slut shaming" are misguided. They say that women should feel free to let it all hang out, because modesty is about "shame" and "victim blaming." The truth is that the feminist movement has bought into an alien Roman ideology, that sex ought to be disconnected from holiness. That such disconnection equals freedom.

Women have been duped by the feminist movement. A movement which took full advantage of them.
