There Was A Lot Of Slutshaming On "The Bachelor Australia" And Everyone's Pissed

"Let's add fire to the burning stigma of adult industries."

Posted on

On Wednesday night's episode of The Bachelor Australia, Matty J's sister Kate swung by the mansion to meet his prospective girlfriends.

Basically Kate was there to stir up shit, and have one-on-one chats with the remaining 14 girls in the house.

Basically Kate was there to stir up shit, and have one-on-one chats with the remaining 14 girls in the house.

Since last week, Channel 10 has been teasing audiences with previews that make it look like giant secrets were going to be revealed in the episode.

Kate first spoke with Leah who told her that she's a full-time student and also a party planner. But Kate later spoke with another contestant, Elora who said: "There's rumours that she could be some kind of exotic dancer... maybe she's worried that she's going to be caught." Kate then decided she HAD to find out the truth, and set about doing some detective work, because apparently Leah doesn't have a choice when it comes to telling Matty about it in her own time.

And people were pretty quick to point out how outrageous it was to be shaming Leah for her work.

Really? That's the "skeleton"? I LOVE GIRLS WHO SHAME OTHER GIRLS AND ADD FIRE TO THE BURNING STIGMA OF ADULT INDUS… https://t.co/BW8b7tUjNc

HEY MAYBE SHE DIDNT MENTION HER SEX WORK BC YOU'RE ALL AWFUL AND MISOGYNY IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE IS SAFE #TheBachelorAU

Love my trash tv, do not enjoy the implication that someone is a bad person because of the nature of their work πŸ™„#TheBachelorAU

Especially because she's done a number of pretty shitty things over the last few episodes that are actually worthy of critique.

hi i'm not a fan of leah but like we don't have to slut shame her there are Actual Bad Things about her like idk she's EVIL #TheBachelorAU

Matty's sister was shocked that Leah hadn't yet told Matty about her past, despite the fact she's hardly had any one-on-one time with him.

Has she told matty she was a lingerie waitress? SHE HASN'T HAD A SINGLE DATE WHEN WOULD SHE TELL A STRANGER THIS INFORMATION? #thebachelorau

Matty... pah-lease. You don't even know the girl's last name and you expect to know she's done topless waitressing? #TheBachelorAU

ALSO people were pointing out that former male contestants of the show never received similar backlash for their work.

Number of Bachelors who had been topless entertainers: 2 But Leah is female so that means they HAVE to slut shame her right? #TheBachelorAU

Thank god Matty is above taking off his shirt for money #TheBachelorAU

Seriously Channel 10, it's 2017.

STOP πŸ‘ SHAMING πŸ‘ SEX πŸ‘ WORK πŸ‘ ON πŸ‘ NATIONAL πŸ‘ TV #thebachelorau
