Amber Rose was not feeling Tyrese Gibson and Rev. Run's feelings on women who dress provocatively during an appearance on the duo's new OWN talk show, It's Not You, It's Men.

When Gibson compared men trying to grope a sexily dressed woman to people wanting to play basketball with someone wearing a basketball jersey (facepalm), Rose shut that shit down real quick. 

"That's not the same thing Tyrese, ya'll know that," Rose said, before explaining that it doesn't matter what a woman is wearing when it comes to consent, even if she's not wearing anything at all.

"If I'm laying down with a man, butt naked, and his condom is on, and I say, 'you know what, no, I don't wanna do this. I changed my mind,' that means no. That means fucking no, that's it. 

And when Rev. Run piped up to say "I've heard a quote that said 'dress how you want to be addressed,' and it's just, there's some validity to that," Rose promptly shut that shit down real quick, too.

"Oh, boo! That's not realistic. Stop it," she said. 

She ain't mad at 'em, though, nor is she surprised at their opinion.

"That's how society raised all of us," Rose said, admitting that she is herself a former "slut shamer" who called women hoes. "Society teaches us to be that way. You see a woman that's like dressed provocative, and you're just like 'she's loose.'"

Rose, who has become known as an anti-rape culture advocate, also talked to the hosts about organizing her SlutWalk protest event in Los Angeles last year. 

You can catch Amber Rose's full interview on It's Not You, It's Men on Saturday, February 20 at 9PM on OWN.
