It’s Time To Reclaim The Word “Slut” [Candy Dish]

Whenever I hear a guy refer to a girl as a “slut,” my blood boils. My face turns bright red and I just want to scream in a fit of rage. I want to ask him what qualifies him to label her as such. I want to ask him how he thinks he has the right to put her in that box. Why does “slut” have to be such a terrible word? Why does it have to be an insult? We need to take it back. We need to take it back because we’re not sluts.

I cannot even get started on my absolute disdain for slut-shaming. “Oh she was raped? I bet she was asking for it. She’s such a slut.” UGH NO. JUST NO. NOPE. NADA. It drives me up a wall. So the ladies over at Your Tango are on the same page as me.

Head on over to YourTango and check out how we’re going to bring an end to the shaming behind the word “slut.”
