Girls, women, and transgenders are often made to feel bad about being sexually active or even for dressing in bold ways that highlights their sexuality.

They are called 'loose' or 'immoral' or 'characterless'. This is known as slut shaming.

The opposite happens for males: virgin shaming. Men are made fun of and bullied if they remain virgins or sexually inexperienced for long.

Slut shaming and virgin shaming are two sides of the same patriarchal coin. It's a way of society exercising control over people's sexuality.
