    Hey guys, Bea Miller here.

    I’m gonna be checking in to Ditch the label’s Community over the next few days to answer your questions and to talk to you about things that actually matter.

    To get things started, I want to talk about a picture I posted on Instagram recently which caught the attention of another woman, who called me a slut just for having confidence.

    Instead of reading this as the negative comment it was intended to be, I decided to hear it as someone calling me a sweet little unforgettable thing and turn it into a positive message to hopefully empower other women.

    So now, I want to hear from you. I’ve created this space to be a safe place for you to share your own thoughts and experiences in and about the word with me.

    Leave your comments below!

    love, bea

    Hey Bea!! I feel the same. I get called a slut all the time and it’s usually from other girls and I don’t understand why. Like we should be there to pull each other up??

    Hey Bea,

    I have been slut-shamed and it drives me mad that people do it the whole time to one another, the worst is when women do it to each other like we don’t have enough problems.

    So cool you are here, thank you for starting this thread. ❤️

    hey bea!!! 😍sorry that happened to you! The fact that you made a good thing from a bad experience is really cool. I’m gonna do that in future, next time someone says something mean on social media I’m going to find way to turn it around and use that negative energy for positive things!

    Thanks for the inspo, love your song btw!

    Hey Bea, love the video!!! ugh whenever I wear some of my clothes I get told that i’m giving off a certain “look”…. like my clothes create a bad impression. I mean they are just clothes you can’t judge a person by what they wear, right!?

    Love the way you turn it positive. Next time someone makes a comment I’m just gonna own it like you do.

    i once pulled over by the police and it was late i was in my pajamas running to the store quickly, and when they asked me to step out of the car, they told me to put a sweatshirt on because what i was wearing was “disgusting” and that i should have “more respect for myself” the worst part was that it was a women! we shouldn’t tear eachother down like that and i shouldn’t be told what i can and cannot wear

    hey bea! i may not have experienced that before, but i know it’s something that happens in a daily basis. i’m extremely disgusted by people who call women “slut” for the way they dress or pose. i think those people don’t understand yet that any women can do whatever they wanna do without being slutshamed about it. we all own our bodies, and we try to be confident, and these people saying all these hateful comment can shut up with their disrespect and let girls be proud of their body. thank you for expressing your thoughts on this matter! i know i picked the right role model! i love you

    I’ve been called a slag and slut so many times and always by other women and i find it so backwards what happened to women supporting each other. all i see if people bringing each other down and it’s so sad because it’s shows people still haven’t learnt. especially learnt the definition of the words which is not my clothing choice.

    hi bea, i don’t know if you will be able to see that but that’s my story, nobody called me slut (well just a girl of my class but i ignored that because she felt angry or whatever) but my exboyfriend was the same as motherlove’s boy, desesperate and full of shit, he was toxic and he made me feel broken. i started to hide feelings, to stay in my house for days and he just wants that we meet to kiss when i wasn’t well with that idea because i felt bad with myself. when i broke my relationship with him the chapter blue appeared and i was happy that somebody could “understand” me… btw i’m so thankful to you, because of you i feel like i am a sweet little unforgettable thing and nobody can’t refuse that, thank you so much bea, you inspire me everyday 💜

    (sorry for my english, i’m from spain, i hope to see you soon)

    Hey Bea! I’ve been with you since your colored hair and I have never been prouder to be part of a fandom. You have such beautiful and good songs with such a big truth about them, I have been toldby my ex-boyfriend (who was my boyfriend at the time) that whenever I wear a crop top or in his eyes “sexy” clothing that I am asking to be touched.
    Like how disgusting, he told me that I can’t drink whenever I’m around other guys because I can’t control myself so I can’t say no to other guys??? Tell them giys to keep their hands off instead of telling me to dress, act and live differently just because guys can’t act like civilized human beings. I broke up with him because of your song S.L.U.T. It inspired ke after you released it and gave me strength. Thank you for being such an inspiration and for helping out girls from all ages 💓

    I’ve never been called a slut myself, probably cause i’m a guy, but I’ve heard it constantly in the hallways directed toward really nice girls. one of my best friends was recently shouted at and called a slut in the hallway and like I had no idea what to tell her. at least in my school it’s a common insult that cuts deep for most and like I have no idea how to be a part in getting rid of the general meanness of the word and association : (
