Amber Rose has been in many relationships. Her and best friend, Blac Chyna, have two children with two different men and seem to always be in love, but soon after are in a new relationship.

While both have been 'slut-shammed,' they both don't care about the publics opinion. In fact, Amber Rose has created an entire 'Slut Empire' and 'Slut walk' event that happens every year and a lot of people are surprisingly a part of it. Despite the participation, there is a lot of controversy about her taking so much pride in being a slut and creating this whole 'slut walk event.'

The 'Slut Walk' is actually a positive event. As stated on the 'Slut Walk' Twitter page, the purpose of the 'Slut Walk' is to, "combat Women’s Equality issues such as sexual injustice, victim blaming, derogatory labeling & gender inequality." And it's gotten a lot of attention and participation over the years.

The walk was inspired by an incident that happened in Toronto where police officers had told a group of women to "stop dressing like sluts if they wanted to avoid sexual assault."

There's No Shame In The 'Walk of Shame'

Amber Rose uses the most common derogatory labeling terms that she is called and brands it. While she's labeled as a slut for having had so many partners, two different baby daddy's, and other stunts, she doesn't let people degrade her and control her. And while it is controversial to say 'I'm a slut and I'm proud,' we all can respect her for advocating against rape culture, labels, gender inequality, and sexual injustice. In recent years, there has been a lot of these issues and not much being done about it.

Modern Feminism

She has been on the back end of a lot of disrespectful and very racist and sexist attacks. In an interview, she said she would cry and even avoid leaving the house. It got so bad that she hit a realization point, and she wasn't going to let people take away her happiness anymore. She stated, "I got to a point where I really stopped giving a f**k, and that's when I truly got enlightened." All of her feminist acts are in the form of satire, and it's really hilariously brilliant.

Stop-Shaming

Her message is that society has told men and women how women should dress, act, and look. She's tired of being told how to be a woman, and so are a lot of other women. In another interview, Amber Rose said that, “I’ve been called a slut while I was still a virgin. I have been called a slut while I was in a committed relationship with my husband. So it really doesn’t matter what you do in life, people can call you that name because they are uncomfortable with your sexuality." This is why she embraces the term slut, and calls herself a slut. Because she's not going to let other people have any power of her. And every woman can respect not being controlled by someone else.
