Publicly shaming women is still a thing? (Credit: Shutterstock)

From Your Tango

Sometimes it feels like we haven’t come too far from shaming women à la The Scarlett Letter’s Hester Prynne. And in some cases, the humiliation happens on national television.

After being interrupted by a drunk woman on Bourbon Street, a New Orleans TV reporter asked the 49ers fan, “How long have you had an STD?”

    The reporter should have been more professional in dealing with someone on Bourbon Street after the Superbowl (Side Eye: she wasn’t the only drunk person down there). She could have just as easily told her that the story was not on the game but the community and asked her if she knew of the seriousness of sexually transmitted diseases. Funny, those people who agree with the reporter know they would have had her tail if she had done that to them (on television)….U’d b calling Shay-Shay and a lawyer! Have several seats!

    I watched the video and didn’t think the “drunk” woman was being all that obnoxious. At least she was on topic, referring to the game. Maybe it was the reporter who was drunk.

    I think she was trying to shoo the drunkard away. Public shaming? No,but in the comfort of my home,I sure talk a lot of snack about these new “sexually liberated” people.

    Ask yourself if a man would be shamed for the same behavior.

  • Nope

    As opposed to what, doing it privately as is typically the norm? Ask any man who or what his woman wants to talk about as soon as he sees or speaks to her.

    I thought the video was hilarious of the News reporter & the drunk woman. She wanted to be all in the background acting a fool seeing that they are filming. The News Reporter flipped the script saying they were doing a segment on STD’s in NO. I don’t believe she was doing it as in trying to stereotype the woman thinking she must have an STD, but doing it more so to catch the woman off guard so she’ll walk away

    If you’re clowning in someone’s broadcast they’re going to shut you down. But as for slutshaming..No comment. I try not to say anything if i have nothing nice to say.

    NO!! It’s tacky and very low, only a miserable soul would do that.

    • L-Boogie

      I totally agree.
