'Bachelor in Paradise' Star Maurissa Gunn Speaks Out Against Trolls Shaming Her
Bachelor in Paradise has a lot of cute couples this season (literally obsessed with Grocery Store Joe and Serena Pitt), but the chemistry between Maurissa Gunn and Riley Christian is simply unmatched. These two had an amazing date during last week’s episode, but unfortunately some viewers shamed Maurissa for talking openly about being sex positive.
Much of Bachelor Nation has come to Maurissa’s defense, and now she’s speaking out about the ridiculous double standard she’s facing.
“First off, I do want to say thank you to those who have been showing so much love and support,” she wrote. “I know the video is all fun and games, but I do think something needs to be clarified. I don’t need to explain what I said, because I said it with conviction… However, there are other women that may not be as nonchalant or as indifferent as I am, to handle the kind of criticism that I’ve been receiving, and it’s not okay.”

She added, “To my next point, it’s OK FOR WOMEN TO LIKE SEX! Sex is a 2 person act, so there shouldn’t be a double standard regarding which gender can openly like it, and which gender should be timid about their enjoyment. What’s even harder to believe is that the majority of the negativity and hate is coming from women. It’s already hard enough being a woman in today’s society, so we as women should do everything to lift each other up rather than bring each other down. I hope this message is received with love and kindness.”
Yes to all of this!!!!!!!!
