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 a socio-cultural analysis of the feud between two very high profile women on Twitter, an interview with a prominent feminist author on language and gender-based bullying, a look at the reasons why the “s-word” has nothing to do with sex, an overview of a new study that dispels links between promiscuity and the HPV vaccine, and an article on the futile attempts of a presidential hopeful’s tech guru to hide his misogynistic tweets.
