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 hundreds taking part in SlutWalk Chicago, a new loophole that could allow women contraceptive coverage even if their employers are morally against it, a notable indie game developer getting slut-shamed, a classic quote by an infamous ex-intern on her public sexual bullying, and the brutal assault and attempted rape of a young porn actress.
