Tori walks up to her two friends and greets them in the hallway.
Sean: What’s up, prude?
Tori’s friends judge her hoodie.
Sean: What’s with the hoodie?
Julie: Yeah, no one will notice you under all of that fabric
Tori: Well, actually someone did notice me!
Tori starts to spill some juicy gossip
Tori: We’ve been talking for a while. I may have done it.
Her friends are ecstatic
Sean: Omg you did it?! Finally! You’re the last in our group to do it!
Julie: Deets now!
Tori: We met on OKCupid, and after a while, we decided to meet up here after school. And we went back to her place, and one thing lead to another.
Tori’s friends are shocked
Shock turns to doubt
Julie: So you didn’t really do it then…
Tori questions her friend’s ignorance
Tori: So wait, it’s sex if it’s with a guy, but it doesn’t count if it’s with another girl?
Sean: No. Because it’s only sex between men and women that counts.
Julie: Yeah. And there was no—erm—thing involved.
Tori: There are more sexualities than heterosexuality! All of them are valid!
Tori: And Julie, sex is sex! There are tons of ways of doing it without penetration
Julie: Okay, geez, Tori, we’re happy you did it. But don’t you think it’s slutty to do it on the first date?
Tori: Do you think it’s slutty that Sean sleeps with girls on the first date?
Julie: The girls Sean sleeps with are sluts, but Sean isn’t.
Tori: THAT MAKES NO SENSE!!!
Sean: I’m a dude, I’m supposed to have lots of sex. Girls either have to say no or be sluts.
Tori: Okay, let’s break it down. What is a slut?
Both: A girl who sleeps around a lot.
Tori: And why do we only call women sluts?
Tori: Because we, as a society, want to control women’s sexuality. We praise women that make themselves appealing to men and at the same time shame them for making their own choices.
Tori: How many people does a woman have to sleep with to be called a slut?
Tori: See how flawed this way of thinking is!? You don’t even have a standard number!
Tori: The correct answer is trick question. Stop calling girls sluts.
Julie: Okay, so should I call Sean a slut because it’d be wrong to focus only on women?
Tori: No! Don’t call anyone a slut! What goes on between consenting persons is none of your business! Using the word slut just feed into misogyny! It just hurts people and holds advancement back!!!
Both: Okay. We’ll never say slut again.
Tori: Well, there is one exception. Some people have reclaimed the word slut and choose to label themselves as sluts.
Tori: But let them label themselves! You don’t get to label them and project your prejudices!
Tori: Let’s do away with “prude” though.
Tori: You guys have been calling me a prude for years, so don’t pressure people on that end.
Tori: I’ll educate you two at Sean’s tomorrow. Right now, I have a date.
Tori reads a text from her date as she walks away from her friends.
Sean: Go get some!
Julie: Shut up, Sean!
