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 piece on the links between slut-shaming and sex trafficking, an analysis of gendered slurs in the LGBT+ community, a call for a woman’s right to have complicated aka “messy sex,” a news item on a famous model and mother who pushed back against slut-shaming, and a discussion of the role of misogynistic slurs in hip hop culture.
