Slut Shaming is Never Cool: Last Night's Episode of the Bachelor

Clare took it too far, but was it really her fault?


Ay ay ay... where to begin on last night's episode of The Bachelor. First, I think we all know that Juan Pablo and Clare definitely did the deed and second, can we please all acknowledge the fact that Juan Pablo is kind of a major douche?

After a group date that basically consisted of Juan Pablo and Clare macking on each other every chance they got, Clare took it upon herself to keep the festivities going by knocking on his door at four a.m. When Juan Pablo found her on his doorstep, instead of wondering why this fifth stage clinger was there, he greeted her politely and agreed to her request of swimming in the warm Vietnam ocean. 

Then, like the crazy (and horny) kids that they are, they began to make "pure bliss" in the water. Now, it never admitted that they had sex, but c'mon, from her metaphor of a baby giraffe to her cocktail party toast of "making love," it's pretty obvious that they did the nasty.

But as lovely as that all sounds and as into it as Juan Pablo seemed, he decides to change his mind for the millionth time, and decide that he needs to set a good example for his daughter. I'm all for that, but he seriously needs to stop pulling the daughter card every time he doesn't want to kiss the ladies. He's completely being wishy-washy with his decisions and the ladies and Bachelor Nation are definitely starting to notice. 

But the part that really pisses me off is the fact that Juan Pablo basically slut-shamed Clare. I know that he will probably blame it on his cultural differences, as he did with the homophobic comments that he recently made, but even The Bachelor host, Chris Harrison, admitted that he made Clare feel cheap. 

We all saw how game he was to dip in the water with her (and dip something else, if you catch my drift), but then, out of nowhere at the cocktail party, he tells Clare that they took it too far and that he needs to be a good example for his daughter. To which, Clare tried to explain that he should have said something, but he hushed her down by talking to her like a little child and telling her to look at him.

So, at this point, I am not a big fan of Juan Pablo. I'll still watch the show, of course, I wouldn't dare miss any more possible trainwrecks, but as for the slut shaming, Juan Pablo can blame it on as many things as he'd like, but I, and I'm sure the rest of America and Canada still think that he pulled one major douche-worthy move.
