What does it mean to look like a slut? In another interesting video from Hannah on Youtube, she explores the word slut, and whether or not this word should exist.
In my opinion, I agree with Hannah: the simple answer is that there is not such thing as slut. Why have girls disassociated themselves from the idea of being a “slut”? What does it mean if we want to reveal a little more skin, or a little less? Does less clothing always mean we are looking for sex, or some other relationship? Does our clothing really accurately correlate to the number of partners we spend our time with? I think not.
Recently, feminist movements have been attempting to reappropriate the word slut into a more positive meaning: TV shows have jokes centered around looking "classy with a hint of slutty." These women are taking a derogatory term, and then making it a joke that they are in control of in an attempt to clear its meaning.
But still there are those out there that use the term in only a demeaning way, and girls who still use it positively with themselves, but negatively towards those they dislike. And this, I believe, is something that needs to stop.
