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 one of the foremost researchers of sexual bullying and slut-shaming writing about her experiences following the phenomenon over the past twenty years; a handy guide to find out if, in fact, you’re being slut-shamed; a piece on how one student feminist newspaper has decided to eschew the “s-word” for something more inclusive; a behind-the-scenes revelation about yet another misogynistic fraternity initiation ritual; and a certain actress confessing her sexual secrets during a Q&A about a beloved classic.
