Your Weekly Slut Roundup

From sex workers to women who use birth control or just, you know, anyone at all on the feminine spectrum, no one is safe from the slings and arrows of the S-word. Our weekly “slut roundup” is a snapshot of recent news items where the term has popped up, from stories on slut-shaming and sexist bigotry to any relevant sex positive pieces as well.

The internet must have blown its load on Halloween slut-shaming so there wasn’t too much that caught our eye this week EXCEPT a video by YouTube feminist Hannah Witton called “Do I Look Like A Slut.” In it, she delves into the frustrating and ubiquitous debate about what a “slut” actually is, and then asks Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook the same question, revealing some of the choice responses she received. (Spoiler alert, Tumblr is by far the most progressive).
