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 two politicians getting into hot water for dropping the s-bomb, a little workout slut-shaming, a look into a gay men’s book club with the best name ever, and an opinion piece on birth control.
