Counter-Culture Conservatism: “Slut-Shaming” Edition

Anna-Maria Hoffman is a college student and conservative woman who feels strongly about the messages current pop culture sends out to our young women. She feels there has not been a properly public voice from her generation to stand up and defend modesty and encourage young women to value themselves and demand others value them as well. To that end  Anna-Maria has created the blog “Counter Cultured“, where young conservatives address the culture they live in. They don’t just talk politics –  they talk movies, television, music, values and she even has a fashion section. This week I had the pleasure of traveling to the Dr.Phil show with Anna-Maria to talk about the topic of “slut-shaming”. A lot of folks don’t know this term (I had to look it up before we taped the show).  Anna-Maria describes the term and gives her response here. It’s well worth a listen, and if you  know of any young women who are hungry for this type of message then this blog is a great resource. In the age of Kardashians, Jersey Shore and Teen Moms it’s refreshing to see a young woman who is proud to wade against the culture and advocate for more self-respect among her peers.

    I watched you on the Dr. Phil show and, yes, they tried to portray you as a bully, but I must say that it really did not work. You cannot argue with TRUTH! This postmodern society that Dr. Phil and those other women were endorsing, tries to tell us that there is no right or wrong, and that whatever feels good is good. In reality, this mind set is killing the young and old alike. Thanks for being brave and going on the show!
