Why Asking Women About Their ‘Body Count’ is Disgusting and Needs to Stop
The concept of “body count” is often discussed in popular culture, particularly regarding men. However, this idea that women’s sexual histories are fair game for discussion is not only unfair but completely disgusting. It implies that a woman’s worth is tied to her sexual history, which is unfair and untrue. Additionally, asking about a woman’s “body count” can be damaging to her self-esteem and mental health. We must work to break down these sexist and misogynistic attitudes and treat women with the respect and dignity they deserve.
