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 round, we have students engaging in mass walkouts after school dress restrictions unfairly targeted female students, some commentary on the state of sexualized Halloween costumes, a female musician calling out her peers for their self-objectification, a discussion of one city’s SlutWalk’s name change, and two animals shamed for their biological imperative.
