I get called a “slut” all the time. My friend Ashley calls me a slut like it’s my name: “Slut!” The Frisky staff calls each other sluts when we divulge our sexual escapades. Internet commenting trolls call me a slut fairly regularly (and a “bitch”, and a c-word, and plenty of other foul things). I call myself a slut, like, say, last week when I hooked up with a dude on the first date. A lot of 20-something women are used to being called a slut in some area of their lives, in every situation from “haha, just kidding” with our friends or (cool) co-workers to more serious areas, like when it’s hurled at us by a catcaller. “Slut” is one of those female-centric words — like “bitch,” like “feminist” — that can mean so many things that it almost means nothing anymore.

As of yesterday, two lovely famous ladies are once again on the market. First, Olivia Wilde separated from her husband, Tao Ruspoli, the son of an Italian prince.

Named for the iconic singer/actress Jane Birkin, the “it” bag will set you back the price of a college education. I’d rather spend that kind of money on, um, college, so the only Birkin I’ll be carrying is this cute Birkin shopping tote from Thursday Friday. And it will only set you back $35! Remember when some dude offers to help as you heave your groceries up the stairs to say, “Be careful! It’s a Birkin!” [Thursday Friday via RockerRepro.Blogspot.com] Keep reading »
Kim Kardashian attempts to channel (and interview) her idol, Elizabeth Taylor , in Harper’s Bazaar with a, ahem, Kleopatra photo spread. “What if I want to go on a date with someone in New York, and then I come home to L.A. and I go on a date? I could have slept with none of them, but I would be known as being—a ‘slore’: a slut and a whore. But I’ll do what I want. I have such a different outlook now,” Kim says of her love life. I think she has a long way to go before she reaches Liz status. A looong way. But it’s good to have goals.[Harper’s Bazaar] Keep reading »
