Female Empowerment?

A friend on Facebook recently posted a link about, "Slut Shame: Why do we still attack women, just for having sex?".  With the link she asked, "hmmm...why is that?"  Well, since you reply:

Because ALL women are meant to be adored, cherished, and have a crown of love placed on her head by A man who would lay his life down for her.  Every inch of her naked body, he should know by heart.  This is not something you find in casual sex.  Instead of our soul being filled during sex, it is drained and we are left feeling empty, which is so contrary to how we were told we'd feel...empowered.  I think that in the back of our hearts and minds, we still know this as humans and that's why there's a negative stigma attached. 

However, no woman should be attacked, even verbally.  Christ himself condemned it when he came to the defense of Mary Magdalene, a prostitute who was about to be stoned to death.  This is where the famous quote  "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone" (John 8:7) came from.  After she repented, he honored this former prostitute w/ being the 1st to see him after he rose from the dead.  Anyways, just one woman's opinion...based on my own experiences :)
