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.

This week we have men and women rallying at UVA to protest rapes on campus, a performance artist taking to the streets in lingerie to delve into sexual double standards, Bette Midler trashing Ariana Grande’s choice of expression on stage, an analysis of a protest in Kochi, India against strict moral policing by the state, and a review of a Madison, Wisconsin TV show about sex, gender and power.
