“The Nightly Show” Takes On Slut-Shaming And It Is Pretty Much Perfect

The brilliant Larry Wilmore over at “The Nightly Show” devoted his entire show last night to tackling slut-shaming, in light of both the recent Mo’Ne Davis debacle and the fact that, like, every woman in history has dealt with something similar. He broke down the word “slut” and its meaning, which is helpful because it’s always good to fully understand the insults you’re throwing around like so many dirty sweat socks into an overflowing hamper. His definition:

A girl who developed faster than you both physically and emotionally; she dabbled in healthy sexual experimentation, which was intimidating; or she refused to have sex with you, which was frustrating.

So, the dickbag that accused a teenager of being a slut for being better at sports than he is was not only an asshole, but also flat-out wrong. We knew that already, but Larry Wilmore cleared it up anyway. The rest of the episode is a delight — watch it here. [The Cut]
