Mo’ne Davis remains a better person than any of us as she steps up to defend the college baseball player who was removed from his team after calling her a slut via Twitter.

Trigger Warning: This post mentions sexual assault.  Picture Joey Del Marco: she is sixteen years old, and she plays video games and dances her butt off with the best of them. She and her friends refer to themselves as the “Slut Squad” because they enjoy their newfound, emerging, and exciting sexuality. Joey goes to a party, where she splits an entire bottle of vodka with a few guy friends. Joey’s friends rape her. Her family and friends turn their backs on her, faulting and shaming her for the wrong that has been done to her. Read More
There’s a new pro-ho website in town, and she wants you to "come inside." Slutist calls itself a place for those of us who “embrace the YES.” It’s for those who own their hot bods and do whatever they want with them. Mostly, it’s for people who identify as sluts, which may or may not be your cup of tea. The word ‘slut’ packs a punch. Some feminists hate it, and for good reason – it’s been spat at women for generations, from such hateful, grimy places as dark alleyways and Rush Limbaugh’s mouth. Read More

After all, the police officer in question isn't the only person to share this view. It's a popular and insidious belief that women are often at fault for their own sexual harassment by dressing to provoke. Read More

Repent, sinner

BY jodi sh doff in Sex

It’s okay for women to have sex as long as they don’t enjoy it or actually desire it. That’s so fifty years ago, right? Wrong. Claudia Bellocq, in her blog, Claudia Bites! writes about being called a slut. Awful from a man, but worse still from woman to woman. Teenage girls do it all the time. When our hormones are raging, when we’re just becoming a sexual being, it's the thing we fling at another girl to hurt her, take her down a notch, ruin her reputation. Read More
