Prolific Sluts of Our Times (Queue BBC documentary music):
Cleopatra.
Madame de Pompadour.
Don Draper (Whatever, do you even watch Mad Men?)
Yo mama.
You know what, that sounds like a very stupid premise for a television documentary. It may only be popular with the Neckbeard, MRA, and all around disgusting excuse for a human being demographic.

At least in this century.

‘Slut’ wasn’t always a word that applied to a very promiscuous and rachet woman or man (Yes, men can be sluts too). The first recorded definition of the word ‘slut’ was in 1402, and pretty much meant a woman who was unkempt and messy. Example context: “Thy lady doth smelleth of oxen, and looketh as fresh as one who hath never seen a reflecting glass.” It also could have the same definition as it does today – aka ‘hussy’, ‘ho’ and whatnot – but that was less common.

The word evolved over the years. It wasn’t really until the early 20th century that people began to use it as a synonym of ‘whore’. It was meant to degrade women, because women were gaining rights-like the right to vote. It’s a sad trend that when any group finally gets the same rights as an established group (Not even going to touch the word ‘privilege’ here), ignorant and threatened idiots have to drag them down.

Flash forward to the modern era. Some women are ‘taking back’ the word, in a response to stop a culture where women are blamed for how they dress as an explanation for sexual assault, as an insult, as a socially acceptable way to degrade character, etc. Slut is not a word that discriminates-men can be called a ‘slut’ too. However, given the historic definitions, this fight goes to the ladies.

The next time you consider using the word slut, you’re really calling someone a righteous mess. So take your attitude somewhere else – you’re a total slut before you take a shower in the morning. Know more.
