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 roundup includes an HIV activist calling out slut-shaming in the gay community, yet another sexist high school dress code debacle, a short and sweet video with teenagers defining slut-shaming, a paper on the complex behavioral and sexual hierarchies on campus, and a look at the latest celeb nude photo leak and the public’s reactions.
