Swedish Teens Riot After Slut-Shaming On Instagram

Today's Lady News photo
  • High school students in Sweden staged a riot after a 17-year-old student posted a question on Instagram asking for “sluts” to be identified, which garnered a list of 200 pictures of 13- and 14-year-old kids. In response, other students — including older siblings — went after the original poster and then rioted in the streets and at the mall. Damn, Sweden. You’re making us Americans look like we don’t give a shit about slut-shaming! [The Local SE]

Pink's Slutty Song

A Frisky reader sent me the lyric video for Pink’s new song “Slut Like Me” and asked what I think. To be honest, musically, I think it sucks. But I have a feeling he was asking what I really think about Pink owning the word “slut” and using it to describe herself — which I’m cool with in my own life. We have to be aware of the nuanced differences between how different people use “offensive words.” Those words can be powerful or harmful depending on who is using them and how. It’s totally different when I call myself a slut in a positive, pat-on-the-back way than it is when an angry man calls me a slut because I rejected him at a bar. (Or, you know, Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut.”) “Slut Like Me” is no great piece of music, though. I wish it was worthy of the debate over women using the word “slut” that it is going to cause!  [YouTube]

20 Sluttiest Things People Have Ever Done

What’s the sluttiest thing you’ve ever done? I’m pretty sure this has come up in conversations more frequently than some might be comfortable with, but I’ve never seen this discussion get so in depth until browsing this thread on Reddit. My sex life feels incredibly tame compared to some of these stories – some are funny, some are shocking, some are just plain weird – one response from AlphaRedditor says: ‘I had sex for Cinnamon Toast Crunch.’ Fair play.

Here are 20 of the weirdest, wildest, sluttiest things that Redditors claim to have done. Read more…

10 Lessons Only A Slut Can Teach You

If I could have three wishes from a Genie they would be the following: Jason Giambi would happily agree to have sexwith me, drinking beer would dramatically improve my figure and the word “slut” would lose its negative connotation and become a widely accepted term of endearment far and wide. I’m pretty firm in my conviction that number twenty-three will eventually come around, but I’m afraid the other two wishes are a wee bit far-fetched. A girl can dream.

A girl can also embrace her “slut status” with grace and dignity. That’s right my friends. There are methods to the madness that is the promiscuous adult female. Sure, there are moments when she becomes completely crazy, but that’s half of the fun when you’re interacting with and living the life of a slut. Read more …

God bless Gloria Allred: the attorney has fired off a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office to notify them that their most noxious resident, Rush Limbaugh, broke the law. (Again.) It turns out Florida has an obscure defamation statue classifying the “false and malicious questioning of a woman’s chastity” as a misdemeanor. Which, of course, is exactly with Limbaugh did when he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his nationally syndicated radio recorded in Florida. 

Let’s be real: Florida should repeal such a sexist law. I mean, really, “a woman’s chastity”? But I’m not going to be pretend I would be tickled if Rush Limbaugh did get in trubs for defamation. [Huffington Post]

One spring afternoon when I was in high school in New York City, I had a bizarre health scare. A friend and I had been lounging by the Hudson River pretending to read and philosophize but really gossiping about our schoolmates — acting exactly our age.

That afternoon, I had miserable symptoms as I always did when I had my period. So I popped  some handy painkillers, waited for them to work, gritted my teeth, yakked some more with my friend, and then went home. Later that evening I noticed myself itching at the hairline, then on my face. Within an hour, I was completely covered with distinct red polka dots which would have been cute on a dress, but were horrifying on my skin. Hurriedly I showered, took Benadryl, and woke up fine the next morning. I assumed it had been a reaction to something on the ground or a tree.

But then it happened again the next time I had my period. So my mother, like the good Jewish mom that she is, marched me to the doctor. There I learned I was allergic to anti-inflammatory  medicines: Aspirin, Advil, Aleeve, Motrin and their equivalents. I could only take Tylenol, which didn’t help nearly as much as the other pills had.

This newly-diagnosed allergy posed a big problem. Keep reading »

 I know you were all breathlessly waiting to hear what Patricia Heaton, who played the wife on “Everybody Loves Raymond,” had to say about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke’s public comments regarding birth control coverage under health care reform. (More background here and here.) But unfortunately for you, Heaton has deleted all of her tweets about the topic. Why could that be? It seems the public did not look too kindly on Heaton’s tweets last week, which included:

“If every Tweaton sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn’t have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce – sound good?”

And:

“G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex – pay 4 it!”
