Kaitlyn Bristowe Has a Message for All Hannah Brown Slut-Shamers

by at .

We can't believe this has to be said in the year 2019, but thankfully Kaitlyn Bristowe is here to help us say it.

Is everyone listening closely? Do you need to turn off any music or any podcasts and really focus here?

Okay, go right ahead. We'll give you a moment to do so...

A Great Bachelorette

All good? All set to hear this apparently breaking piece of news?

Here it is:

Women are free to consensually have sex with anyone they please.

SHOCKING, right?

Sadly, the answer seems to be yes to a handful of critics out there; most notably the one in particular who has dominated this season of The Bachelorette.

Over the past couple weeks, villiainous suitor Luke Parker has been outspoken about his disdain for Hannah getting close to other men on the show.

Emotionally? Yes, sure. But physically? Absolutely.

On a recent Bachelorette episode, Luke scolded Hannah for taking off her shirt while bungee-jumping with Garrett, saying to his possible wife-to-be:

"Your body is a temple and honestly I’m just thinking of you holding him, bare-skinned and I’m just thinking in my mind... it just pissed me off, it really frustrated me.”

This was only Luke's opinion on the show itself, but Hannah has sadly been slut/sex-shamed to such a degree that she was forced to make the following statement last month:

I refuse to not stand in the sun. I refuse to feel shame. I refuse to believe the lies and evil that flood my comments.

I am standing firm in believing that maybe God wants to use a mess like me to point to His goodness and grace. But dang, it's hard.

The amount of hate I and the men on this journey with me receive...it's chilling to know so many people want to spread hurt so recklessly. We all fall short of the glory of God...we just happen to do it on national television.

Perhaps she can now be comforted by the knowledge that she doesn't need to fight this battle on her own.

Kaitlyn Bristowe in the Year 2017

Bristowe, the season 11 Bachelorette lead, rushed immediately to the Alabama native's defense on Tuesday after a Twitter user noted "women are coming after" Brown and "slut-shaming her like they did to you."

To her credit, Kaitlyn was simply NOT having this.

"Women can have sex if they choose, and women can wait till marriage if they choose," Bristowe replied, adding with emphasis:

"Point is, ITS THEIR CHOICE. When you're making a life-altering decision to find a life partner, intimacy can be important. Why is that so hard to understand?#TheBachelorette."

We wish we knew, Kaitlyn.

Hannah Brown: I F--ked in a Windmill

Bristowe went on to call for support from all of Bachelor Nation.

"Of course, we should," she tweeted.

"Have you ever done something you regret, and needed support? Or would you be fine with everyone coming after you, when you're probably already being hard on yourself. Sometimes regrets are life lessons, which result in self compassion and growth."

This topic has surfaced once again because a promo for next week's episode of The Bachelorette features Hannah truly telling Luke off, once and for all.

As you can see below, she does so in truly epic fashion -- by telling the sexist loser than she had sex with another suitor this season. Twice. IN A WINDMILL.

Does Hannah actually send Luke home next week?

Or does she somehow justify to herself that he deserves to stay?
