Amber Rose doesn’t get enough credit for being a complete badass. But it looks like that’s about to change. The model recently appeared on Tyrese Gibson and Rev. Run’s new relationship series, It’s Not You, It’s Me, where she set the record straight on myths that often surround the notion of sexual consent.
When Tyrese suggested some women might be “asking” for sexual attention by giving off a certain “energy,” Rose immediately shut it down.
"If I'm laying down with a man — butt-naked — and I say, 'You know what? No. I don't want to do this. I changed my mind,' that means no,” she said. “That means f-ing no. That's it.”
She added, "If I want to wear a short skirt or a tank top, and I'm at the club and I'm having fun with my friends and I feel sexy, I'm not DTF. I didn't come here to have sex. I came out here with my girls and I just feel pretty.”
After realizing the debate was getting a little heated, Rose made it clear that her anger wasn’t directed personally at Tyrese or Rev. Run. In fact, the 32-year-old admitted she, too, used to have similar opinions, even referring to herself as a former slut-shamer.
"I'm not mad at y'all," she said. "That's how society raised all of us."
No need to apologize, Rose. Plenty of women — and men — out there appreciate your words. Here is just some of the support that came in through social media.
