It’s almost time for the holiday where we stuff ourselves on stuffing, drink too much wine to deal with our crazy relatives asking us if we’re still single, and pout when we still have to sit at the kids’ table. That’s right! It’s Thanksgiving time! When we’re lost in the drama of the holidays, it can be hard to remember the spirit of the season. Maybe these topics aren’t the ones your family will want you to list around the dinner table, but there are loads of things Slutty Girls have to be thankful for, and here are just a few!
Beyoncé for her empowering jams.
Suffragettes for fighting for our right to vote so we can make sure Donald Trump doesn’t become the next president.
Chris Hemsworth for being Chris Hemsworth.
Your best friend for sitting outside the bathroom while you took a pregnancy test.
That pregnancy test for coming back negative.
Our friends for being our strongest support.
Liquor for being our second strongest support.
Condoms for protecting us from STIs.

…or for cuddling us after sex, even if they hate it.
The family members who cook our Thanksgiving dinners. Even if that person is yourself. Or the Chinese food guy.

Leggings, because anything that isn’t elastic is not fit for such a big holiday meal.
Okay, leggings for just existing, while we’re at it.
And, most importantly, all the other slutty girls out there who make us feel empowered, strong, and sexy on a daily basis! Happy Thanksgiving!
