My Response To Jenna Marbles’ Ridiculous Slut Shaming Video In GIF & Text Form

I’ve never had much of an opinion either way about Jenna Mourey (commonly known as Jenna Marbles), prominent YouTuber and popular Internet personality. Sometimes I find her funny; other times I find her Western-NY-accented rants a little annoying (to be fair, that’s mostly because I grew up in Upstate New York, too, and simply hate the dialect). Overall, I think she’s attractive, amusing and oftentimes intelligent, so I had zero qualms with her up until yesterday.

However, a friendly reader directed me towards Marbles’ YouTube channel to see a video titled, “Things I Don’t Understand About Girls Part 2: Slut Edition.” Right off the bat, it was fairly obvious that this would consist of gross generalizations regarding female behavior and sexuality. Nevertheless, I watched the video, and ten minutes I’ll never get back later…

…oh look, I was totally right.

According to Marbles, here are the vague guidelines with which she sets up her video:

“A slut is someone who has a looot of casual sex. And unfortunately I can’t completely define ‘a lot’ because it’s different in different people’s minds. Think about the people that you know in your head. It’s not that girl that’s sort of like, ‘Ohhh, she’s just confused,’ and it’s not that girl that’s, ‘Ohhh, you know, she’s just doing whatever.’ It’s the girl that you’re like, ‘Yeah, yeah, she’s a slut.’ Yeah, that girl. Those are the group of people that I’m talking about.”

Okay, so lemme get this straight: a slut, by Marbles’ definition, is not somebody who is fucking people because she’s “confused” (about what? dicks?) and it’s not women who are, uh, “doing whatever.” It’s just people whom you emphatically label sluts?

This isn’t going to be even the least bit rational, is it?

She goes on to inform you of her belief that being a slut is a choice, and then feigns concern for women’s “slutty choices” but “still loves you” because she totally didn’t just insult women everywhere, particularly those who believe that having casual sex shouldn’t be excusable for males and condemnable for women. Oh, and she has “many friends who are actual sluts” (is that like saying you have black friends in order to act racist?). JUST SO YOU KNOW.

Marbles then says she doesn’t understand why women have one night stands because “girls, in particular” have body issues, so having sex with a stranger — or as she aptly calls it, “doing sex things to him” — is totally ridiculous. You know, because every single woman has body image problems and all men do not, therefore making consensual sex in a casual environment mentally dangerous to a woman’s psyche while every man’s just pumping away, feeling great about himself. (Wut.)

Pictured: Every woman post-one night stand.

Pictured: Every man.

It’s also dangerous to our health! Because that man might have plans to “chop you up” and put you in his freezer, which is obviously your fault for going home with him and not his fault for being a fucking murderer. Or, she cautions, he might have several friends “closing in, ready to gang bang you.” Now, I’m pretty sure she’s referring to “gang rape,” so victim-blaming a woman for not expecting a bunch of men to rape her as a result of going home is absurd. Nobody expects to get gang raped and it’s not up to her to prevent it (pro tip: who’s making the choice to rape somebody?). Yes, there are dangerous situations that one must consider when going home with a stranger, but women can take bath salts too, so I’m pretty sure nobody’s necessarily safe with an unfamiliar acquaintance simply because of his or her gender.

Oh, and it’s “risky on more than one level!” Why? “Pregnancy, disease, and fuckin’ homicide.” After all, nobody has ever gotten pregnant by their partner unexpectedly, gotten an STD from somebody they knew or been murdered by their significant other (except every fucking day). At this point, I took a break, because things were starting to get audibly sassy IRL at my computer and I just wanted her to leave my sense of calm alone.

But we trek forth: next, Jenna Marbles insults your asshole friends because they clearly don’t care about you if they allow you to live your own sex life the way you see fit. Now, I’m obviously not saying that if a friend of yours is wasted and wants to go home with a stranger, you shouldn’t just put her in a cab or take her home; that’s common sense, because your friend can’t legally consent to sex in that state of mind. But does that mean that you should prohibit your friends from boning acquaintances? No. No, it does not, because that is not your business. She then slut shames women who, as pointed out by Tumblr lexcanroar, are likely being sexually assaulted by saying that if you help your blacked-out friend get home, you’re helping “the sluts of the world make less bad, slutty decisions.” What the fuck, indeed, that she’s all but condoning the actions of anybody who would have sex with a person who’s entirely unable to consent while insisting that an incoherent female is deserving of stigmatization, slutsplaining and judgment.

Oh, and by the way, college isn’t the educational institute you so naively believe! Guys apparently go to school to “look for sluts,” by the way, which is insulting to men on several levels. First of all, it implies all men have the same mindset (then again, generalizations seem to be Marbles’ thing). Second, since when did men not go to college to, y’know, learn? Oh, since all men obviously became mindless sexual beings who can’t control themselves. Since that time! Okay.

Fortunately, not all YouTube personalities are assholes promoting outdated, sexist rhetoric. In fact, user Laci Green posted a wonderful response to the video, asking her viewers to consider what slut shaming is and why it’s exactly what Marbles is doing. She quotes a friend by saying, “If we don’t respect sluts, we don’t respect women,” and calls the attitude of holding disdain for anybody who doesn’t have sex the way you think they should “some arrogent bullshit.”

In all seriousness, I am so deeply disappointed and saddened by Marbles’ grossly sexist rant. It’s these types of attitudes that harm women just as much as the misogynistic ones resounding from men, and there’s simply no place for them anymore in a society that desires to hold men and women as equals. But some people still scream them through their e-megaphones; even sadder, many people continue to give them the means to do so.

In conclusion, everyone, if you’d like for the brilliant Jenna Marbles and other such slut shamers to approve of decisions regarding your sex life, health and well-being, you should totally listen to her. After all…

The End.

      I’m just going to say that shows like The Bad Girls Club, Real Housewives, the Kardashians, etc.etc.etc.etc do way more harm to women than this girl’s video. This video hardly even scores a blip on my “things to be offended about” radar. I’m WAY more offended by Kim Kardashian and Snooki.

      • Cee

        Just because there are worse people to get offended by doesn’t mean you can’t analyze something offensive that you like said. Hitler is more offensive thank Kim Kardshian but you can get offended by her and Sam can get offended by Jenna Marbles

      • Cee

        Something offensive that someone you like said*

      • Samantha_Escobar

        And then there’s female genital mutilation and using rape as a tactic of war, which are things I’m WAY more offended by than Kim Kardashian and Snooki.

        As @cee said, just because there are far worse happenings in the world doesn’t mean that spreading negative stereotypes about women is a-okay. In fact, perpetuating lies about victim blaming and encouraging slut shaming actually bothers me considerably more than anything Snooki’s done. She’s just annoying; these attitudes are dangerous.

      • kj

        I’m down with Jenna Marbles because this video is at least fostering a dialogue. I’m optimistic that she will issue an intelligent response to the criticism this video has garnered. Jenna Marbles has posted a lot of smart, funny videos and I think she is generally a positive role model for girls – she shows you can be pretty AND smart AND hella funny. I think that any dialogue is good dialogue.

        RHWs and the Kardashians are all about “Look at all this awesome shit I have! SHOPPING!” etc and not about issues real people face.

        It’s not exactly relevant to be saying that FGM and rape as a war tactic are offensive – we’re talking about US pop culture personalities here……..

      I’m a big fan of Jenna’s but this video really pissed me off. And it seems, for me at least, to come completely out of left field for her. She’s done many videos that, while comical, come off very intelligent and pro-women (i.e. the olympic sports bra video & the skimpy halloween costumes video, just to name a couple). I would’ve never expected to see this video come from her.

      • Samantha_Escobar

        I know, right? I usually have seen her as a humorous commentator, so it bums me out that this exists.

      • karla

        i feel like this video is directed towards a situation in her life, after all she was so upset last week. i know assumptions are bad, but i have a feeling she was cheated on. or maybe she found stuff about her boyfriend regarding other women.

      • stoosh

        I’m pretty sure the consensus about last week was that a good friend of Jenna’s and Max’s sadly either died or committed suicide. Jenna’s comments were a bit ambiguous but Max posted a video with more a clear message regarding life and death, etc. I think it very unlikely that this video is as a result of a relationship problem.

      • Guest

        While a friend of Max’s did die, this was also posted the day after her and Max finaly called it quits on their four year relationship. ;) That does not excuse what she has said, and hopefully she will see that, attempt to make ammends and learn from this experience and grow as both a human and a woman.

        You need to shut your mouth and kill yourself for the slut you are.

      • Anon

        I have never seen a greater bunch of over sensitive pantywaist crybabies freakout about somebody judging them on their personal choices in life before. So what babycakes?!?!? If someone drinks and drives, do we judge them for this bad decision? Hell, yes we do! Do we judge all drinkers? Hell, no we don’t! We are judging the CHOICE, not the man or woman than indulges the occasional intoxicating beverage. When you make a stupid decision, utter a stupid phrase out of your mouth, make a dumb over-generalization about something everyone already knows isn’t the fact, someone has a right to express their amazement at your “slut logic” as Jenna Mourney humorously puts it. When you go to the doctor, and you tell him it hurts to pee, he asks you quite frankly, how many people have you had unprotected sex with recently… Is he judging your precious liberty as a modern woman in this world? Hell, no he/she isn’t. They are trying to ascertain exactly how big of a slut you are to figure out the possible self-destruction you have inflicted upon your BODY is this time Lolita. It is no different when you go to pick of car to purchase. Women are wonderful as separating the BODY from the MIND, why not in regards to unprotected sexuality? What is so hard to wrap your mind around in regards to making BAD CHOICES and make BAD DECISIONS? It is a bad choice to have unprotected sex (the kind that Jenna is specifically addressing in her blog video) with lots of random people and if you are a girl or boy / man or woman that habitually makes bad choices like that, prepare to be judged upon those bad decisions you make. That’s life, chick! Deal with it sluts! No amount of squirming around the subject with feminism is going to convince anyone else that being a dumb slut is a good thing. Nobody, except enabling those who make a career for themselves out of bad decisions in life to begin with. I’m over it. Shove it up your ass if you think otherwise. I’m out.

      • scp1957

        Alternately, SHE cheated on her man and is now hyper-defensive about it, the best defense being a good offense. Guys and gals BOTH play that game.

      • MensRightsCanada

        If it pissed you off then good, you’re part of the problem.

    • rita

      i love jenna marbles and i loved the video. i totally agree. being promiscuous is risky and gross.

      • Cee

        *blink*
        So a woman taking charge of her body, desires and choices is gross? Also, conflating promiscuity with risks is completely ignorant. A squeaky clean prude exposes themselves to the same risks a promiscuous woman does when she touches somebody else’s genitals

      • Angee

        Promiscuity IS full of risks. We’d be kidding ourselves if we pretended it wasn’t. Though I don’t necessarily approve of defining the terms of the word ‘slut’, saying that a prude and promiscuous women are putting themselves at the same amount of risk is untrue. A more sexually active woman will have more opportunities for that risk.

      • Samantha_Escobar

        While I agree than banging a bunch of people can get risking, those risks aren’t exclusive to women. Men who have sex frequently, versus men who do not, are also at risk of impregnating somebody and getting an STD; it’s not a one-way street.

      • Penny

        Yeah, so? Everybody is reading way too much into this. Just because the video was about women does not mean she’s unaware of how this is also true for men. You can’t possibly think she’s that stupid. You’re looking for sexism where none exists.

      • Cee

        Women who take control of their body and decide to be promiscuous usually are more aware of risks. They use condoms and are usually on some sort of birth control method. Also, they have many exit strategies and rules when it comes to going back to a persons place or back to their own place. Promiscuous women are not idiots that are unaware of the potential risks that come with sleeping with many people.People need to stop feigning this concern when they are truly slut shaming.

      • Angee

        Now you’re generalizing the women that are promiscuous. Maybe Jenna was generalizing by saying promiscuous women are all making bad decisions, but you’re generalizing by saying promiscuous women all have ‘exit strategies’ in mind, and are always well aware of what they’re doing. Perhaps this applies to you, but in all honesty, you have to know that it does not apply to all women.

      • Cee

        I did not mean to generalize (correcting on a crappy connection is almost near impossible), what I’m trying to say is that for the most part promiscuous women are aware of the situation that they are in. We must stop concern trolling them because they do not need it. For the most part they are aware of the situation they put themselves in. Yes there are a few that are not, but we can’t use them as a basis to tell women not to be promiscuous. If you are genuinely concerned for someone in your life that is, tell them so, but don’t belittle their life choices by informing them it is risky. That is not as much of a shocker to them as you may think

        I am not promiscuous. I just feel strongly that women should be able to make the same choices men can without having women themselves judging them as gross and thinking that they are idiots unaware of risks.

      • G

        Your kidding right? Maybe in whatever fantasy world you live in.

      • chanela

        sweety really? condoms are not magical. people can still get pregnant while using condoms 0_o

        you are giving promiscuous women (and men) WAY too much credit. these are the same women that are so proud to sleep with every men they see, and then once they get pregnant, they’re over here crying on maury because they have on idea who the father of their child is and they are upset that they don’t have the father of the child to support them. DUH because you didn’t know him in the first place.

        it’s just not a smart thing to do. way too many consequences over some damn” urges”. i can’t believe people see nothing wrong with it and actually accuse people of “slut shaming”. this is why STDS are on the rise.

        sex is nothing to play with.

      • CMJ

        So is sitting on the BART in a skirt with no tights on.

        My point is, a lot of things are risky…and as Cee said, you put yourself at risk every time you have sex – even if you’re in a monogamous (so you think) relationship.

      • stoosh

        For all of the people leaping on this comment, how about thinking sleeping with complete strangers is a tad gross regardless of whether you are male or female?

      • Carla

        Those are your thoughts and opinions. Some people share those thoughts and opinions, some do not. You should not feel badly for how you choose to conduct yourself, and neither should someone else who makes different choices than yourself.

      • Cori

        So is using public bathrooms, but I’m not going to judge a girl just because she needs to pee. ;)

    • Alex Dumpfree

      I’m not disputing the notion that those are valid reasons – and they motivate plenty of men, as well as women!

    • kj

      I love Jenna Marbles, so I am really disappointed by this video. It’s kinda like, what’s your point? People are able to make their own decisions and bang as many randoms as they see fit without having to justify themselves to others. Concern trolling not required.

      I suspect that Jenna has taken her usual style of outrageous humour a little too far this time and doesn’t realize how offensive and hypocritical this video is.

      HOWEVER
      I don’t really agree with all of Samantha’s takedown of the video.
      While it’s true that you can get an STD (or be murdered by) a long-term significant other, I think it’s absurd to say that your risk of getting an STD from or being raped by your long-term partner is equal to the risk of this happening with a stranger.

      I also think that it’s stupid to ignore the risk from going home with a stranger just because on principle that would constitute victim blaming. I don’t think that being cautious/protecting yourself and working to dismantle rape culture are mutually exclusive.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gethsemane-Herron/1092360352 Gethsemane Herron

        I don’t think she’s saying the risk is as equal to having sex with multiple strangers, but that there is a risk with having sex with someone period. As someone who did get an STI from my then boyfriend, my first and at that time my only, I know it doesn’t matter.

        As far as the second part, “being cautious and protecting yourself” is counter productive to ending rape culture. To pass the messages that you must do something to avoid getting raped is still putting the burden of protecting oneself to the woman. Instead, we need to teach people not to rape instead of teaching people how to not get raped.

      • Tania

        There seems to be such a fine line between what people think of as victim blaming and common sense precautions. Getting black out drunk does make you a better target – not just for rape (stranger or acquaintance rape), but for theft and physical assault. People should protect themselves from greater risk of violent crime. Of course men should be taught not to rape, but the reality is that there ARE men who will be rapists, regardless of what they are taught, same as there are still thieves and murderers in spite of everyone knowing they shouldn’t steal and murder.

        (Of course, saying “you shouldn’t be wearing that unless you want to get assaulted” does not fall under “reasonable precautions.”)

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gethsemane-Herron/1092360352 Gethsemane Herron

        I didn’t say “that men should be taught not to rape”; I said “people” ; “Instead, we need to teach people not to rape instead of teaching people how to not get raped”. Please re-read my comment before you put words in my mouth.

      • http://www.facebook.com/autumn.olive.5 Autumn Olive

        Um, the reality is that most rape victims know their attackers and most attacks occur in either the victim’s home or the attacker’s home, which means your idea of “risky” behaviours is contrary to what people are really taught: Risky behaviour is typically seen as walking through a dark alley at night, where creeps can lurk in the shadows and jump you when you are vulnerable.

        But in reality, this so-called “risky behaviour” is simply hanging out as friends in mixed company, and some social drinking. And I don’t know about you, but most people trust that their friends won’t rape them? It’s not about “taking responsibility it’s about other people treating you like a fucking human being. I went to a party once, and a guy passed out drunk and you know what we did to him? We drew on his face with markers. We didn’t rape him, because that’s psychotic. I want girls to be treated with the same level of dignity. You can still goof around and be silly and draw on people’s faces, but don’t become a psychotic rapist just because someone is passed out.

        So no, it’s not a “don’t make yourself vulnerable” issue, it’s a “be a fucking decent human being” issue.

        Society normalizes sexual abuse towards women, but what do I know I’m only a woman who has experienced cat calling, groping, sexual coercion, distasteful “compliments” (verbal sexual harassment), slut shaming against my past sexual partners, street harassment, and stalking. And none of these issues

      • alexandra

        Actually, around 80% of rapes are committed by an acquaintance or friend– someone known to the victim. And I’d bet that a lot of people give STDs to their monogamous partners, even without cheating– men carrying HPV, for example, don’t show symptoms, so they can infect multiple women just in the course of having normal relationships.

        And to me the most important part of this is the date rape part, like Gethsemane Herron points out. If a girl is drunk, consent didn’t happen, and can’t happen. That’s the part of the video that’s the most offensive, that JM thinks she’s preventing a drunk girl from making a bad “decision.” At that point, it’s not a decision, which is the whole point.

        If everyone involved is sober, it’s a decision that gets made and everyone is taking a risk. Women give STDs to men too. I think it’s worth the effort to speak carefully here, in the interest of preventing careless, offensive misogyny.

        Disclaimer: I have always felt medium about this girl, mainly due to her propensity for baby voices.

        oh, and: http://www.911rape.org/campus-rape/what-students-need-to-know/stranger-rape-vs-acquaintance-rape cause I know someone’s gonna bust my ass about that.

      • Penny

        Yes, THANK YOU. Finally a little common sense here. I don’t agree with victim blaming either but just because rape isn’t the victim’s fault does not mean you can just be irresponsible about the risks. Let’s just be realistic here, just because you have a feminist ideal about the way shit should work does not mean it actually works that way. And just because she’s talking about one risky activity I don’t feel that in order to defend that she therefor needs to acknowledge every other risk a person runs in life. This is just ridiculous and overblown.

    • JennyWren

      I think she’s essentially decided that the term “slut” has less to do with sexual activity levels and more to do with whether or not you personally like someone.

      Also, anyone who uses the phrase “do sex things” should not be allowed to pontificate on other people’s sexual habits. If you can’t talk about sexual intercourse without resorting to coy semi-euphemisms, you don’t have the level of maturity to decide what other people get to do with their bodies.

      Is sex risky? Yes. So is driving a car. But that never stops anyone.

      • bobell

        Im not going to comment on the video but from what I gather, you havent watched Jenna Marbles because shes not coy in the least. Watch one video, any video and youll know.

        you need to chill! jenna marbles has a damn phd and 2 other friggin degrees but she doesn’t take herself seriously at all. she’s a go go dancer for crying out loud!

        just because she has a certain type of humor and says things like ” do sex things”, doesn’t make her unfit to talk about things. you obviously don’t watch her videos. make a video of your own and say things the way you want to say them.

    • Olivia

      my problem is this: yes the video is bad, it’s awful but if you’re JUST NOW getting upset at jenna for saying stupid stuff- you need to backtrack and check yourself. because 1. that’s what she’s famous for, making sexist gender scripting videos in the name of “humor” and girl hate rants (uh, “what bitches wear the the airport” anyone?) she has never been pro “woman” and 2. she’s also had a history of being pretty damn racist- BUT NO ONE EVER BRINGS THAT UP. in her nicki minaj video she wears full on blackface and a butt pad- and people don’t say anything about that, EVER- yet now everyone is up in arms about this slut shaming video, as well they should be! But, I don’t know, I just want to live in a world where people care as much about racism as they do sexism. It bothers me that women can get away with repeated racist bullshit and no one cares but then as soon as they slut shame everyone jumps on the bandwagon. Those are just my thoughts.

      • karla

        i TOTALLY agree! she always does/says offensive shit in her videos and i’ve never understood why people never said anything. but i’m glad people are getting this upset now, i mean.. better now than never

        You’re right, I have never heard anything about a blackface video! I don’t want to watch it and increase her views, I’ll take your word for it. All around this is just super disappointing. I’ve enjoyed what little of her I have seen :(

      • katie

        get over it, it is humor, just because it isn’t humor you like doesn’t mean shes a sexist racist monster that should be burned at the stake. your only claim that she’s racist is because she did a nicki minaj impersonation (and painted her face) well Nicki Minaj isn’t white now is she, and a butt pad really? how does that make her racist? I have seen plenty big butts from women that were white, asian, hispanic, and black (all races) so please explain how a butt pad would make her racist? she also impersonated other people right? What you are doing is reverse racism people don’t care about racism and it’s not because it’s an issue that needs to be talked about but because in a lot of places it isn’t an issue and maybe people are tired of other people bringing up the race card ever second. don’t be getting crazy over nothing.

      • melsbells

        You need to educate yourself on what black face is.

      • EMily

        right? does no one here know what minstrel is? did everyone skip history class? stfu until you do some research. it’s wrong, it’s always wrong, and yeah, its completely offensive. It goes back to slavery, literally re-enacting the “happy go lucky dandified coon” (that’s a direct quote from wikipedia)- and not cool. Butt pads I get, crazy make up I get- we still would’ve gotten it.

      • mel

        No, dressing up is not always wrong…black face is wrong. Changing your skin tone for the sake of a costume is not. Overly and unnecessarily sensitive people like you tend to confuse everything with black face which is a very specific character portrayal. Black face was dehumanizing as it portrayed black people as simpletons and lesser beings. This is not the purpose of a costume of an actual person who happens to be black. If you dressed up as a person wouldn’t you try to look like them? Why is it okay for you to mimic, say for instance, their hair color and not their skin tone? What are you so afraid of? Are you afraid of admitting that we all have skin? Are you one of those people who constantly confuses a racial conversation with a racist one? Why are you trying so hard to censor? Is it supposed to be a secret that Nicki Minaj is black? Or is it like Voldemort- something so terrible that we simply can’t speak of it?

        Oh, I agree. Everyone’s always up Jenna Marbles’ boo-hind and I never got it, never will. All she does is go on long, mildly funny rants about girls, like she’s so above all the dumb girl stuff girls do (my sister does that stuff. I especially love it when she says she hates girl drama when she LIVES for it!) She did one about ugly girl tricks to looking pretty which was basically just a nit pick on girls wearing too much make up. Can’t stand the girl. She’s a glorified drama queen.

        And she’s immature to boot. I would never have guessed she was in her mid 20s…

        i’ll admit, i made a response to this video because it upset me, but i don’t regularly watch her videos, so i didn’t know about the black face or her horrible Asian impression in the “swing yo dick” video. even though i’m all for calling out casual racism on the internet, i’m almost weary of talking about her any further because it’s just driving her views and ad revenue up. it’s kinda having the opposite effect :P

      • chanela

        are you serious? how ELSE can you impersonate nicki minaj!?!?!? the woman is BLACK. jenna is WHITE. nicki minaj has a huge fake butt. how the hell is it racist for jenna to wear a butt pad to look like nicki minaj?

        and how was the movie white chicks not considered racist?

      • Cori

        I feel weird saying this,but you might want to look to Miley Cyrus as an example. She did dress up as Nicki Minaj for halloween without altering her skin tone to do it and it was obvious who she was. Nicki has a very defined image that you don’t need to use blackface to pull off. I don’t believe the butt pad is racist, but the face paint is and it was unnecessary.

        I think anyone with half a brain sees White Chicks as racist, so I’m not seeing the relevance. It’s just been around few years so no one’s talking about it anymore.

    • lynn

      I don’t really agree with anything Jenna Marbles is saying, but I
      do think as a society we have created this ‘slut’ phenomenon so it’s not
      entirely her fault. I definitely think slut, whore, ho, etc. should be deleted
      from our vocabularies, and I feel that all women should have the right to
      engage in as many sexual encounters as they want. But like Jenna, I have a few
      questions as well.

      First off, these stereotypes exist not because women are
      maturely going around having sex with men and feeling empowered because of it.
      I get it. Women can have a lot of sex. Women can love sex as much as men and
      can go home with whoever they want. I don’t think that’s the problem, though…at
      least in my opinion. Now you’re probably going to attack me for being part of
      the problem, but I really need to talk about my experiences and what I’ve seen
      in my life and maybe you guys can give me some answers. I could care less if
      women want to have sex with hundreds of men, but when I see a girl visibly
      drunk, hopping from one guy to the next in a crowded bar, then hear from
      friends that she was whispering sexual fantasies into their ears, am I not
      allowed to have an opinion of her? I don’t think ‘slut’ is the correct word,
      and I don’t think that everyone needs to have the same morals as I do, but I don’t
      think I can 100% support her actions and give her a high five for women and
      sexual empowerment. Is that wrong of me? Is that normal? Should I just let her
      do her thing?

      Also, if I see/hear a girl talk about how she “totally wants
      to fuck Amanda’s boyfriend Steve because he’s so hot and he’d totally like her
      more than Amanda,” am I supposed to not think negatively about that? Again, I
      don’t think ‘slut’ is the correct word, but what the hell are we supposed to
      call ‘that’ then? I guess labels don’t need to exist and we can all just agree that that girl is not very nice.

      And I definitely agree that the whole double standard still
      exists. Similar to the story of the drunk girl at the bar (above), if we saw a
      wasted guy doing the same thing, although he would be deemed as ‘creepy’ from
      most women, still in some cases (and I’m generalizing here because I know not
      all men are vagina hungry monsters) his friends would either be egging him on
      or not really think negatively of his behavior. For the girl, I’m sure most of
      her friends would disapprove. Now I don’t approve of either. I guess my problem
      is with the actions or manner of how someone (girl or guy) engages in sexual
      activity? Is that wrong of me? Many argue that we cannot shame a woman for
      engaging in sex in a way that is different than the way we would normally do
      it. I don’t necessarily shame women for doing it in a different way, but am I
      allowed to not agree with that way? I don’t think that girl is a bad person,
      but I guess I just don’t agree with her actions. Just like I’m sure we all don’t
      agree what each other does in different situations, not just sex.

      Am I contributing to the problem? Should I just support all
      women in their sexual decisions and say ‘more power to ya’? I understand we
      need to stop the slut-shaming, but I don’t think I can agree with everything
      some women do.

      • JennyWren

        If a girl is visibly drunk, going around whispering sexy things to guys *who are clearly not welcoming the behavior* then she’s absolutely being creepy, and you are allowed to think that. If a girl is talking about wanting to screw another girl’s boyfriend then you are absolutely entitled to think she’s being immature and inconsiderate, just as you would if you heard a guy saying that. But it’s not the sexual part of their action that makes it disagreeable- it’s their manners, and I don’t think anyone would jump on you for saying they were not exercising good manners.

        The problem is that for the most part we still live in a society that values women according to their sexual capital. We’ve progressed a lot as a society, but culturally women are still hugely judged according to their looks and sexual appeal to men. I think a lot of younger women and girls do act out in these ways because they are trying to boost their self-esteem- and that is *not* empowering. Conversely, a lot of younger men do the same thing for similar reasons. But the answer isn’t to revert to old-fashioned notions of sexual purity, because that’s just the flip side of the same coin. We need to try and elevate all of us (women AND men) to the point where sex isn’t a commodity or a way to score points that gives us status, but just an enjoyable indulgence that makes our lives better, no matter how we choose to have it.

        I like to think about someone who sleeps with someone who they know is drunk. Not incoherent, unable to consent or fight them off drunk, but maybe past tipsy and at the stage where they might make decisions they wouldn’t when sober. If you choose to take them up on their attention when in that state, what does it make you? Technically you didn’t do anything wrong, but it also kind of makes you an opportunist jerk. I think if we could move the sex discussion away from morality to simple good manners, we might be able to discuss these things a little more profitably.

    • Rina

      Jenna Marbles was a Go Go dancer

      • katie

        she is also a woman with a masters in psychology personally a go go dancer, a stripper and even possibly a prostitute are pretty smart because they make tons of money off of men just staring at them or having sex. I think that job would be better then sitting at a desk for 8-9 hours a day dealing with crappy people and crapwork don’t you?

      • Rina

        Oh absolutely! I was just pointing out that people could easily say that she is a “slut’ thus, she she should not call other women sluts. Although, it doesn’t matter what a woman does, it is nobodies place to judge.

      The phrase “doing sex stuff” sounded intentionally ironic to undermine the supposed dumb attitude of the ‘slut’ in question. Still horribly misguided and narrow minded, but not stupid. Just wanted to clear that one up if poss….

      Is it weird that I found it sexist that she immediately assumed a slut is a girl? I would say the only really slut is the self-proclaimed one. And even then I wouldn’t always believe them. Labels are more indicative of trying to possess future sexual activities as opposed to past ones.

      • sweetpea

        So true adamfox. I’ve never heard a guy referred to as a slut. His behaviour, while just as risky and unsafe, is usually seen by his friends as ‘cool’.

      I had to stop reading this half way through, what a pile of ridiculousness. Just because men (and women!) can do nasty things doesn’t mean women (and men!) don’t still have a responsibility to be careful. “Yeah I I might get raped/chopped up/whatever, but whatever, that would be HIS fault, and I’m an enlightened woman so I can do what I want…” Her advice is not absurd, and you seriously need to relax.

      • http://www.facebook.com/autumn.olive.5 Autumn Olive

        The reason people are getting mad about this issue is because people have a tendency to blame rape victims for their own rape. Even in court, a victim’s sexual history can be used against her. So can her clothes. And her alcohol consumption. Even the rapist’s ignorance to what consent really is.
        So perpetuating this idea that women are responsible for what OTHER people do to her against her will, is giving rapists a scapegoat. It’s vicious victim blaming and it’s wrong.

    • brittany

      Whenever someone makes a valid counterpoint questioning the “rightness” of being sexually promiscuous, you all go back to the same argument: It’s OK for men, so it should be OK for women.” OK look, I don’t know where along the line here a woman decided that the best way to respond to society’s disregard for men’s sexual safety and health was to promote the same disregard towards women, but this attitude needs to stop. That’s like saying “It’s OK for men to eat dog shit so dammit, we women are going to do it too!” Then walking around with a styrofoam cup of your coveted pile of dog shit with a spork sticking out of your mouth, feeling like you’re empowered because now you’re doing it too, and attacking anyone who tells you you shouldn’t as “anti-feminine.” Does anybody else see how ridiculous this argument is? Ladies, you are missing the point!

      It has NEVER been OKAY for men to do this, just ACCEPTED in society. What we should be doing is working to change that. Men should not be celebrated for using women for sex, and women shouldn’t feel like the only way to take the power back is to insist it was what you wanted all along!

      People like Jenna and I value different things than women who choose to SAFELY be sexually promiscuous (I say safely because I think there are two definitions of the word slut at play here that is causing some confusion: we think of a slut as someone who has promiscuous sex with multiple partners with no regard for the consequences for herself or others who may be affected. You are talking about women who make the conscious decision to have safe casual sex with multiple available men. These are different. Our definition deserves to be shamed. Yours does not.)

      The difference between people like Jenna and I and your definition of a “slut” is we value different things and sometimes people with our value system have a hard time understanding how a women can be so radically different. To us our bodies are sacred, having sex is when you are at your most vulnerable, it’s something to be shared only with someone special. We value a monogamous relationship. We value the bond between two people who only share this act with each other. We value the safety of monogamous sex, such as the reduced chance of STDs. We would honestly feel shitty about ourselves if we had a one-night stand, NOT because society would make us feel bad, NOT because men can do it and we can’t so waah, but because we HOLD OURSELVES to a standard: promiscuity is counter-productive of what we want: a long-lasting relationship with a faithful partner who respects us. And yes, we believe that a marriage-material man would be less likely to have that respect if we let it all go on Day One. These are personal moral values that we hold ourselves to.

      The women you are supporting do not value these things. They value freedom in choice. They don’t feel ashamed when they have multiple partners like we would. Perhaps they do value some of the same things but disagree on casual sex’s effect on their ability to ever attain these things.

      What we have here ladies are two groups of women with two different value systems who need to learn and understand and respect each other. What saddens me is that tolerance on ANY level – be it women’s sexual choices, gays, abortion – needs to go BOTH ways. You have to be tolerant of someone’s right to disagree with any behavior and not SHAME them for disagreeing with you. I believe what you are engaging in right now is REVERSE SLUT SHAMING – shaming a woman for disagreeing with a promiscuous lifestyle. In your defense, Jenna didn’t exactly make her point in the most eloquent way, so she deserves a little flack for not treading a little more lightly. I’m sure she, like me, had no idea there was such a fanbase for sexually promiscuous women.

      The sad thing is here none of you focused on the three points Jenna actually made during the video, only that her personal opinion that sleeping around with no regard for yourself or others is wrong: One night stands- this isn’t necesarily wrong though, sorry Jenna! It depends on your values as described above. If a woman chooses to have a safe one night stand, as long as its not with a man who is “taken” and she doesn’t get pregnant, thats OK! Which leads into the last two points she made:

      Hooking up with another girls boyfriend-

      Getting pregnant and being happy about it-

      I believe even you new-definition-of-slut-proponents would agree that neither of these things is defendable. I think we can all agree that hooking up with another girls boyfriend is disrespectful – and before you jump all over me, yes the boy is equally – EQUALLY – responsible. But as a woman with a vagina we hold the power, we have the ability to make the choice to be different than men, to hold ourselves to a higher standard, to consider feelings, consider family structures, consider peoples lives and futures we may be affecting with our sexual choices. No one said it was fair – but its our responsibility as women. That’s my personal opinion anyways. And lastly getting pregnant. Again maybe this is just a reflection of my personal values. I believe a child benefits from growing up in a household with two parents in a committed relationship. Maybe you take your feminism to a whole new level and say we don’t need no stinkin’ man anyways. That’s your choice, your value.

      I have really strong feelings on this so forgive me if I came across as harsh. I totally respect you safe-sex-slut-banger women (said endearingly. We are taking the term back, right? that’s why we use the term slut shaming? We’re saying its wrong to shame the new definition of sluts?) if you totally respect me, a perhaps overly traditional-conservative and way-too-proud-to-only-be-bangin-one-guy woman.

      PS – IF THERE ARE ANY YOUNG GIRLS READING THIS, PLEASE DO NOT FEEL PRESSURED TO HAVE SEX JUST BECAUSE OF THIS SHIFTING TREND IN OUR SOCIETY TOWARDS ACCEPTANCE OF A CASUAL ATTITUDE TOWARDS IT – ITS YOUR CHOICE! IF YOU WANT TO HAVE SEX THEN HAVE IT! BUT IF YOU’D FEEL WEIRD/ASHAMED/UNSURE, THEN JUST DON’T DO IT! WAIT TIL YOU’RE A LITTLE OLDER AND WAIT TIL IT FEELS RIGHT!!

      • stoosh

        Yeah, i’ve kind of always thought a bit like this. Emulating the very worst of “permitted male behaviour” could be seen as a kind of step towards equality, in a weird way. Doesn’t make it any less of a depressing thing to do. I have little respect for girls and guys that unsafely slag it about.

      • Benita

        You are doing the same thing Jenna is doing which is equating how a woman views herself with the number of sexual partners she has. That’s wrong no matter how wordy you get. Women, like men, are people. We are not “better” than men because we have vaginas, thinking like that falls dangerously into the old argument that men can never turn down sex which is a big tenet of rape culture.

      • LastBitofCommonSense

        Take note everyone, Benita has not one but two goals here, as do most of the women who attack slut-shaming. One, she wants to be a slut, at whim, without reproach. Two, she wants it known that she’s better than you because she’s free and you’re indoctrinated. Different points of view will not suffice. Ironic that the most closed-minded people are in fact the sluts, but then men already knew that didn’t they? It’s why PUA’s can play women like this like fiddles.

      Jenna’s also done black face unapologetically. While I can appreciate her occasional funny videos, that pretty much ruined her for me.

    • NelJel

      I have been watching Jenna’s videos for about three years and I do agree that this video is a little different than her typical stance on things and that it probably has to do with a negative situation going on in her life. I actually think she is just stating her opinion and she’s allowed to feel however she wants and make any kind of video about it.
      And it seems like some of the “sluts” she is referring to are girls who feel like they have to act this way because it’s expected, not because they truly want to be having promiscuous sex.

    • Anita

      Who’s Jenna Marbles?

      • http://blog.franchesca.net chescaleigh

        the most famous woman on YouTube

    • BumbleBBB

      Jenna didn’t slut shamed any slut. She was stated the facts, brought up examples and questioned the logic in a slut’s mind. She went to a woman point of view instead of a man because, we have to admit, men are less vunerable than women (in general). Men have less chance to get knocked up or raped by a woman. Now, Jenna was only stating, in the whole video, screwing 5 times a week with different guys is not safe on many levels. Some are upset with the term “slut”, but how do you call a person (man or woman) who fucks 3 different person in one night and doesn’t even know their names? Not because i had an one night stand last Tuesday. Jenna’s video was about how having intercourse with a stranger is risky. If you enjoy sex, get a couple of partners to screw with on a regular basis. It’s so much safer then a stranger in my bed each night.

      • sass

        Most women are raped by someone they know; your claim is erroneous.

    • Donna

      The ONLY error in this whole article is that Jenna’s last name is Mourey, not Marbles. Marbles is her dog, and therefore every time I read “According to Marbles…” I pictured a Chihuahua dictating to Jenna about slutty behaviour. Just to clarify that….

    • stoosh

      Are people here saying that they wouldn’t consider intervening if they saw an incredibly drunk girl clearly about to get taken advantage of? This is assuming that she is visibly past the point where she can properly consent. That’s anything but a woman taking control of her own body and it is dangerous. And I know this isn’t necessarily a popular opinion, but i’d say the rather a lot of the time, us women are more vulnerable than men in certain situations.

      • Benita

        Yes, women are more vulnerable partly due to attitudes like Jenna’s the perpetuate the idea that women are responsible for preventing their own rapes instead of teaching men not to rape women. A woman who is too drunk to give consent is not a slut if a man has sex with her, she’s a rape victim.

      • stoosh

        I’ll re-iterate my point… would you not step in? Rape is something that exists, but stepping in to stop it happening does not mean women are responsible for stopping the rape (note: at no point do I refer to this hypothetical girl as a slut)… it remains completely the attacker’s fault. But while there continue to be guys out there with fucked-up mindsets and/or a downright corrupt attitude to sex, I certainly do not have any qualms with helping to stop something awful happening. My point was basically making reference simply to being a good person.

        I’m not entirely convinced that there are going to stop being dickhead men in bars picking up women who are clearly past the point of ability to make their own judgement (ie: BLIND DRUNK) anytime soon. I’d rather help stop something happening to that girl than wait around for the day that all men finally understand the nuances of rape and why every instance of such is wrong.

        This is not to say I don’t believe in education. Some men do need to learn these things. But it’s an ongoing process and that needs to be combined with basic human concerns such as what I expressed above. Christ, even said intervention could involve some assertions as to just what this bloke was doing wrong!.

    • MJ

      The thing that stumps me about this whole thing is that, not only has Jenna come off as a pretty intelligent woman in former videos, but she used to be (still is?) a Go-Go dancer. I have no problem with this AT ALL. However, clearly other people do, as I’ve seen YouTube commenters pass judgment on her sexuality and life decisions based on this career choice. I would like to think that, compared to most people, she’d be a little more enlightened when it comes to making rash decisions on someone else’s intelligence and/or sexuality. I’m pretty disappointed.

    • Kayla

      You guys realize Jenna is a comedian, right? She has opinions just like anyone else. Who the hell are people to say that she’s “wrong”? And for all of you people who use the term “society”, its not some invisible creature going around, influencing everyone’s opinions. Society is people, for Christ’s sake. People have different ways of thinking. Stop thinking that “society is against you” when people don’t think the same way you do. Why should this anger anyone? If you like to sleep around, go do what you do, regardless of what people say. You shouldn’t care anyway.

      • Benita

        You are right, society is for people. That means that all the people here who were offended or hurt by what she said have every right to call her on it. Being a comedian doesn’t grant you an anti-criticism shield.

    • http://twitter.com/LeanaSkylar Leana Skylar

      I really can’t even garner a proper response…First of all I highly doubt that she meant to offend anyone. Yes, Jenna talked about “sluts” which can have many different meanings to many different people. This is her opinion-not yours or mine. She can post whatever the hell she wants. I’m sure you have the right to post an equally “shameful” video or whatever the fuck you want because it’s YouTube-a free video sharing site. The fact of the matter is that people are taking shit to seriously. Yes, she talked about sluts, and how SHE views sluts. Now get over it!! You don’t have to over analyze every single thing she says or does in the video. Who has the time for that anyway? The article said that those minutes watching the video where a waste of her time, yet I’m sure she didn’t just memorize those quotations that came from the video in one go. If it is truly such a waste of time, then why do you insist on writing a whole article depicting and analyzing every single damn thing she says so critically? I’m sure if you were to analyze anything that stubbornly and aggressively you would come up with just as many hidden or degrading comments. Honestly, there are far worse videos out there than this one. There are many other topics that are much more pressing than discussing what a “slut” truly is. There are wars, abuse, trafficking, murders, rapes, and many other more repugnant things going on in the world, than a woman’s opinion, which she has the right to have, about what a “slut” truly is. So the fact of the matter is that yes, some things could’ve been handled better, but she can say/post whatever the hell she wants! People need to get the fuck over it.

      • Benita

      The Tyra Banks clip is both funny and telling, in a “the HELL your isht don’t stink!” way. “I have never in my life yelled at a girl like this!” Not, please note, “at a PERSON”, which would no doubt be a big, hairy lie, put that way. G_d forbid, though, that some MAN make some WOMAN nervous by raising his voice to her. LOL In a nutshell, the feminine/feminist hypocrisy. (I’ve seen way more than one gender theorist, or just casual woman-about-town, define violence against women to include just such verbal encounters, when aimed at women by men. The reverse, close to never, yet it’s FAR, FAR, FAR more common.)

    • http://twitter.com/Trayykay Tracy Ann

      Your take away on this video is obscurely misplaced. First of all, lighten up its called a sense of humor. She is absolutely, in no way, shape or form, blaming a girl for being gang raped by ten men. And to be honest, that simple notion voids any meritorious point made in this entire passage (a passage which I briefly skimmed from that assertion forward due to boredom and unsupported assertions). Point Two, we live in America, a country blessed enough to have the constitution and the bill of rights therein, this provides all of us with our right to freedom of speech. Here is a young woman who is an educated, beautiful, witty entrepreneur using her talents to make a living for herself, and because your opinion differs from hers (and she made clear this was only her opinion), you suggest for others to no longer support her livelihood? I am an educated, young, successful woman and I found this video to be entertainingly hilarious; unfortunately I don’t have time in life for a blog to discuss all the reasons supporting the same . However, i feel it very necessary to pointthat if I did have a blog and I disagreed with her opinion, as you did here; I would voice my adversarial position by supporting it with my own view points- not attacking another woman’s career path by encouraging all not to watch any of her videos. Of the video I watched and this written response I just read, the most offensive thing of all was your last couple of paragraphs personally attacking this girl and discouraging the Internet world not to watch her videos because your opinion differs from hers. As a female ” Internet blogger”,whose profession is writing your opinion so that others may read it,you should be ashamed of yourself for personally attacking her. A little self reflection is in order.

      There two things wrong with this post, one, you simply don’t like Jenna Marbles, two, you’re not making any sense at all.
      I can almost sense that jealousy in every word you have posted in this post, which is understandable, for the fact that you’re barely half as famous as Jenna,and the only reason why people read this post, is because you’re slamming her.
      According to your logic, Jenna is wrong about the fact that ladies should take better care of their body and self, instead of going around having sex with strangers on the street and giving them complete trust to enter your most intimate parts of the body.
      Well, I suppose high schools now need to tell the female students to have sex more often huh?
      Oh come on, generalization? When did she ever say that “every living human being/men/woman is like this”?
      She’s assuming that you’re intelligent enough to understand that she’s only mentioning certain types of people rather than every living human being inclusive of the starving kids in Africa.
      Throughout the post, all you can say is, ‘omg I’m so disgusted by what she said, how could she, it’s wrong, I can’t believe this, I thought she was better than that, oh gawd”.
      Please watch the video again, and try to stop having prejudice on her accent(explains how wonderful your personality is already at the very beginning of this post), try to see whether does her logic sound wrong, or do you insist that women should totally just sleep around and not take care of themselves.
      You’re pretending to be a feminist, but feminism doesn’t work like that, feminism demands for equality and respect for females, such as having the same pay as men, not having disadvantage in the work place just because you’re pregnant, not things like woman should be sleeping around just as much as some men do.
      Jenna was simply giving advice to females who tend to have one night stands, telling them the potential danger they’re putting themselves into, she never said a single word about sluts being socially unacceptable, or that sluts are shameful.
      I don’t even understand why do people call it slut-shaming, she barely said anything about sluts being bad.

      • sass

        Zakito, your argument became invalid with the “you’re just jealous” line.

        The writer has a valid point. Jenna is hypocritical and judgmental.

      • zakito

        Sorry dear, ‘you’re just jealous’ is an actual argument if you look into this context.

        Also, do read through my comment again, I’ve already debunked the whole ‘hypocritical and judgemental’ part.
        If you don’t understand it yet, I’ll run it through for you again.
        Jenna is telling girls to take care of themselves.
        She never said anything that ostracise anyone that fit into her definition of a ‘slut’.
        She’s delivering a perfectly good message under the facade of what this author calls ‘slut shaming’.
        Would anyone click on the video and listen to her advice if the video was titled ‘Girls need to take care of themselves’? Would anyone last till the end of the video if she’s preaching like a saint about why it’s dangerous to go home with strangers?
        Come on these messages aren’t even religious or anti-feminist, it’s the things your parents tell you since you’re young.
        In fact, Jenna shows concern, more concern than the author of this post had ever shown anyone.
        If you ask me, the author of this post is the true hypocrite.
        The author tries to justify one-night-stands, but neglect the danger of one-night-stand, and act like all the problems of unwanted pregnancy, STD and homicide is automatically miraculously disappeared.
        You know what? They still exist no matter how much the author of this post tries to make them seem like such a big deal.
        She goes to the extend of diminishing the dangers of going home with strangers, just to slam a Youtuber, dressing herself up as a feminist so females would rawr with her.
        Do you really think the author of this article would actually live the life Jenna talked about in the video? Would she really go home with a stranger and have sex with him? Would she tell her daughter it’s okay to go home with a stranger? No? Then why is she so angry when Jenna talked about why people SHOULDN’T do that? Why does she act like ALL the female in this world are independent ladies who knows karate? What about the ladies who AREN’T as strong? Do they not exist anymore?
        So tell me now, who is the judgemental hypocrite?

    • Joe

      It’s really simple: if you don’t want to be judged, then don’t be a whore. Not that difficult a concept. Where did all this slut-enabling on the internet come from? I assure you, her post was neither outdated nor sexist, merely the truth. It’s you militant feminists and your tiny corner of the internet who think it’s okay to be a whore, not the rest of decent society. Nobody is going to respect a woman who sleeps around, nor should they. Period.

      • Guest one

        Joe, you never had pussy since your queen-whore mother birthed you. Nobody respects her or you you basement dwelling faggot.

      • sass

        Whores get paid. STFU.

      IMHO anyone who is “offended” by this video is exactly the kind of slut she is talking about. I love Jenna. Leave her alone. Unless she named you specifically in the video, maybe you should just PIPE THE FUCK DOWN.

      • Slutty Virgin

        I am a 15 year old virgin and I was offended. Am I a slut?

        IMHO, It doesn’t matter if she was talking to me or you or Liza freaking Minnelli, if you are offended you have the right to voice your opinion on this video if it does not agree with what Jenna is saying.

        I guess the thing that REALLY bothers me is she is 11 years older than me and has, at least from what I have heard, a masters degree, and yet she seems to be like Taylor Swift in that she is mentally stuck in middle school and wants to be the most popular chick in the (metaphorical) school. She just chooses to be the rebel girl who tells the teacher to fuck off and eggs the principals house instead of being the goody two-shoes teachers pet who turns herself into a polished turd that shines so bright you can’t see the imperfections so every girl wants to be like her. One thing is for sure, neither of them know how to handle relationships in a mature manner or how to be a decent person.

    • kt

      Best part is there’s a video of her sucking cock on the internet.

    • idk

      if you dont want to be a slut, stop being one. that’s for men and women. you have free will, fucking use it and stop complaining about being ‘slut shamed’ it’s the way people see other people and our image in this world is everything. remember that. also remember when you were a kid and you were told you could be anything you wanted to be. it’s all about your will.

    • CoCo

      Reading this article made me mad. Some people just interpret videos and messages differently then others and if you were offended…you’re probably a slut (joke). If said girl usually gets drunk and usually has one night stands…then she’s a SLUT contributing to risking her own life. I’m not saying it’s ok to take advantage of women. But women need to learn from their mistakes and stop taking advantage of their gender. We shouldn’t think that we can live life carefree and then all of a sudden pull out the victim card when we regret a decision we made for ourselves. If you’re walking down the street and you get attacked out of no where, it is NOT your fault. But the situation is completely different if you CHOOSE to become intoxicated in a dark place full of strangers and CHOOSE to go home with one of the strangers. So you’re intoxicated and (guess what) the guy taking you home probably is too, who are you gonna blame now? The free drinks you got by flashing half of your tits? It’s one thing to be taken advantaged of. It’s another thing to be completely senseless. So next time you’re clubbing, maybe bring a friend or have a designated driver. Bring a rape whistle, pepper spray, etc. Better yet, bring your brain.

    • ClaireFair

      really? every woman commenting here is acting like they have NEVER thought of one woman as a slut and another one doing the same sexual things as normal. I call girls sluts when I know they are only having sex with their boyfriends. Jenna makes video’s to make people laugh and in this one in particular she talks in circles and pretty much undoes whatever she says in the first place. I’m a girl and I laughed through this video. Sluts know that they are sluts, that’s why they do the slut thing. Now that you’ve picked apart her video can you go and write an article about EVERY SINGLE RAP SONG THERE EVER WAS because they are 10 thousand times more offensive than this is.

      • sass

        I bet those rap songs inspired Jenna.

    • Fukyoupeople

      Fuck all you people … Freedom of speech!! PROPS TO JENNA!! …. She’s talking about her and max breaking up! U fucking delicate pussies!!! “Sluts” … Geez damn it! GROW THE FUXK UP!!!! Don’t fuxking watch it if you’re so disappointed in her!! :) I fuxking love it!! I wish she would post more vids like this!! So fuck y’all people!!! And all those SLUTS OUT THERE!!! ;)

      Ps. For all those sluts, come suck my big fat thick long dick!

      • sass

        You know, she has the right to freedom of speech, but that does not protect her from being criticized for it – it just keeps her from going to jail.

    • Anon

      I think it’s probably quite important for you to think about the tone of your article. Then consider that you felt the need to comment on her looks in the first section. I certainly don’t agree with what she said, however I do think that you should really think about what your views of women are if you feel the need to comment on her appearance before her humour or intelligence.

    • mari

      Last time I checked the term ‘gang bang’ referrs to group sex, not rape.

    • jojo

      I don’t think she was saying that if a girl was taken home and “gang banged” it would be her fault, but that the nature of a one night stand is risky because you don’t know the person and that person may have intentions you’re not aware of or okay with.
      It really just sounded like she was saying “why have a one night stand when there’s so much risk involved” to which people with experience with one night stands could enlighten her with misconceptions about one night stands and safety in general.
      Do women always go for a hotel? How do you “know” that a guy is trustworthy when you’ve just met him? Do you have an escape plan if his intentions are bad?
      Again, its not the fault of any victim that they were raped, nobody ever “asks for it”, and a one night stand doesn’t suddenly mean that you’re ok with satisfying this guy’s roomies as well (unless you are, which good for you), but if there’s ten of them what are you going to do? Of course a girl wouldn’t walk into that situation, but if that situation turned up, what do you do? I think that’s all she was getting at.

      • EvanAngelis

        If the girl was gang-banged, of course it’s her fault. Dumbass.

    • hkasn

      guys,im more disappointed with this this side,someone explain,Jenna Marbles has a point,its other peoples choice to live this way but its dangerous and risky,why is everyone mad

    • http://www.alexlovessweden.com/ Patricia Alexandra

      yes, jenna marbles, the biggest influence of women everywhere. I mean my god people are entitled to their opinions, I guess others (like you) have to tell everyone why some other internet star’s opinions are incorrect.

    • EvanAngelis

      Anything involving a woman and youtube is going to be stupid, because women are overemotional, illogical, vacuous morons.

    • Nikolay

      Jenna has no grounds upon which to speak on this matter. Sincerely. A girl (she’s no woman, yet, or may ever be – according to my own moral definition) who posts videos on the interweb displaying her breasts as a symbol of (sexual) “perfection”, providing instructions on how to conduct one-selves in the same, sluttish manor, calling out “sluts”? This word is offensive, just as her very demeanor. That breast video is but one of many examples, normalizing the idea of sex. Unfortunately, in this generation I have had to grow up in, idolization of such noble “sluts” covering up the image with makeup otherwise known as “pride” (feminism) is common, and this disgusts me.

    • Brandon Roberts

      i don’t look at any of jennas videos and she sounds like a real bitch

    • Casey

      Mad because Jenna is right.

      • sass

        Mad because Jenna’s a bitch. Not you know, “Oh, she’s just confused” or she’s “you know, doing whatever.” You know that girl in your mind right now? Yeah. She’s a bitch. Jenna’s a bitch.

        See how easy it is to swap out insults?

    • yoyoyo

      If you think what she said is wrong you’re retarded XD
