Amber Rose is shutting down the haters, again. 

In a recent Instagram post, Rose defended her hymn to female sexuality and reminded followers she is an "advocate for safe sex, women's rights, and gender equality." 

Her post was in response to a common question she receives from fans and critics.

It's not about the sex, but about being unapologetic for one's sexuality. 

The question posed in her Instagram note suggests that some people see women embracing their sexuality as being "promiscuous," or as the note says, "hav[ing] sex with as many guys as possible." 

Rose, who sponsors a SlutWalk Festival in her name every year, has been a prominent voice against "slut-shaming," or the practice of stigmatizing women for embracing their sexuality.

Paying it forward.

Rose admitted to Cosmopolitan in 2015 that she hit a turning point in her life when she stopped worrying about being judged for her actions. 

"I think the turning point was when I just stopped giving a fuck about what people say," she said. "One day, I just woke up and I was like, ’You know what? I can’t sit around and stress anymore about the Internet and what people say about me. I just gotta do me.'"

Since then, she's advocated for women over 18 to be "unapologetic" about their sexuality, the same way men have been. 


We're not imagining it: the double standard is a thing. 

A study by the Demographic Research explored the "sexual double standard and gender differences in attitudes toward casual sex among U.S. university students."

The goal was to determine if women were judged more harshly for having casual sex (or sex with someone who isn't a long-term partner) than men. 

The study concluded that while both sexes were open to having different sexual relationships, "men are more judgmental toward women than toward men who have casual sex," the study said. 

"Men appear to over-report and/or women to under-report intercourse and fellatio, suggesting that men see these acts as enhancing and/or women see them as diminishing their status. Women face more negative judgment than men when they are known to engage in casual sex," the study found.
