"However, blaming women for immodesty or sexual expression is harmful, retrograde and sexist. It relies on the belief that women’s bodies exhibit a sexuality that should be controlled and when it is not successfully controlled–they deserve what is “coming to them.” The undue pressure put on women to maintain an unrealistic vision of modesty and purity, that no one can live up to, is slut-shaming in different packaging. It’s a particularly toxic brand of nationalism–the idea that a woman’s purity and modesty is the core of her identity as it relates to her culture. And it has consequences in how women can function. It limits the visions women can have for themselves, their self-expression and control over their own bodies and sexuality. Ultimately, it produces the culture it is trying to control."
