Having multiple sexual partners shouldn't be label as a bad thing, especially if you are unaware of the fact that your former partner is dead, because your current partner told you he was dead.
No, it really should be. Especially in the zombie apocalypse. That's all the survivors need is an STD infection or pregnancy with no stable place to hunker down. She homie hopped. It's that simple. If the genders were reversed it would also be bad. It isn't like it was just some random get your fuck on kind of fling, but a more emotional one who was a close associate of your deceased for a not so long husband.
In The Walking Dead, traditional morality and social rules go straight out the window, so we can not judge these fictitious character by their actions since they are committing them in a world with no rules or norms, those are all gone.
Things that have an increased risk factor for one cheap thrill, especially with no ability to treat, and no ready access to contraception, should not be done. I'd say it's actually worse in their current situation then having civilization backing them up if they get a little bump or crotch itch.
I personally don't like the word slut because no one should be ashamed of having multiple partners, man or woman, but it there is a rather popular double standard where it is okay for men, but wrong for women to do so.
No, you should be ashamed. Increased risk just because you're horny. That's just dumb for people to do. Men included. The only reason it is worse for women is they have a higher chance for acquiring the std then men do.
It might not be your intention when you use the word (you weren't even the one who said it, I'm just arguing my view here), but when you do, you perpetuate that double standard.
No. Using a gender neutral term to apply to somebody is not a double standard. Sure, if I only applied it to women, or never to men in a similar circumstance, I could see the bitching. But when somebody acts the literal definition of a word that applies to both sexes, I will call them a slut. Asian boy is dumb for getting it on with that chick, but hey, at least he, as far as we know, has only had sex with one person during a zombie outbreak which is a lot better then multiple people.
I do not consider myself a feminist really, but I am some one who simply doesn't care for bull shit, which is what double standards and stupid social norms are.
Everything isn't a double standard you know.
I really hope they play up the governor liking WALLS part of his character. He better collapse in utter amazement when he sees the prison for the first time.
