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 articles on MTV’s recent True Life slut-shaming episode, Monica Lewinsky’s campaign to end sexist cyberbullying, Larry Wilmore’s discussion about the ways the s-word is used incorrectly, and, finally, one writer’s response to Amber Rose’s SlutWalk announcement, and her analysis of the ways the SlutWalk movement has historically alienated women of color.
