Instagram Hoes And Sponsored Bitches

According to Urban Dictionary; Instagram Hoe: a woman who posts provocative pictures on Instagram for men to fiend over and pay to get.  A thirst trapper. Sponsored Bitch: a woman who uses a man for their money, status, political or professional position.

When you scroll through your Instagram explore feed, you’re bound to find an insta-famous woman on Instagram. She dons fine clothes, travels the world and has expensive lifestyle habits. Your curiosity wants to know how she can afford this as she doesn’t post anything about her profession or career. She’s not a blogger or an entrepreneur. Your conclusion – she either has a rich man or is a sponsored bitch/Instagram hoe. Granted Instagram gives you the power to show people what you want them to see, but the perception she’s giving off is one of the two aforementioned. When looking at a similar page where an insta-famous man posts the same things, he could be one of three things – a drug dealer/white-collar criminal, an heir or a successful business man. Notice how the narrative has nothing to do with a woman. He may not state anything in his bio nor how he supports his lifestyle, but it has no assumption based on the aid of a woman. Why is that? A man can not be an Instagram hoe. Let that simmer.

The cases where women use their bodies for monetary gain are vast, and historically date back centuries. Often the stripper, sex worker, and Instagram hoe, can be perceived to have a lower moral conscious, unlike the model who walks on the runway. Yet, some models on the runway have slept their way to Fashion Week. Some women have used their body to get high powered positions in the corporate world.

There can be different reasons for a female to become a one of the ‘low moral conscious’ positions in her life. It can be daddy issues, low self-esteem, a need for attention or a way out of her current circumstance. The list is endless. These circumstances are not considered, but their choice is chastised, by both men and women. These factors permit an even deeper issue on how men perceive women. Likes equal popularity and how attractive she is to men. Therefore equating the value of a female body to how many likes are on her picture and how much money is in his pocket.

Instagram hoes/sponsored bitches are problematic and dangerous when the perception becomes normal for someone else. The rebuttal to this will be – “IDGAF about what anyone think – it’s my life!” The answer to that would be – “true.” However, when looking at the ramifications of this adds to the ongoing problem. Look at the perception of a minor looking for a better life/future. She clicks on that page where she sees a woman with an ambiguous career that affords her luxury hotel suites and Hermes bags. Instead of understanding these things require you to work for them, she scrolls through the comments and finds out all she has to do is open her legs. Her assumption is that a woman can be an Instagram hoe, and a man can not, that men work hard to get what they want while women have to work twice as hard and still open her legs. Thus creating a future cycle of issues which create the “opportunity” for them to become Instagram hoes and sponsored bitches.

  1. On point article. Love the Kevin Hart meme. Hits home as I am online dating and on my fat days I’m like “Who IS that girl on Match?”, “Oh, wait thats me before I got winter fat”.
