Slut-shaming is wrong: This 13-year-old has it figured out

How awesome is this 13-year-old girl with her vlog about why slut-shaming is wrong. (Answer: “It’s part of a rape culture… [that says] it’s okay to rape sluts because they were ‘asking for it.'”)

Seriously, how amazing is this girl? And how can I make sure my daughter turns out equally amazing (and with a truly great understanding of the institutional systems in our society that hurt women — at the age of 13!)?
