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 a reality contestant is damned for her behavior, a pundit spews misogynistic venom, a female security officer is sexually harassed, a judge takes a dangerous step in a rape case, and a politician stands up for using the s-word as an epithet because, he’s just, you know, old.
