Letterman Jokes About Sarah Palin’s “Slutty Flight Attendant Look”

It’s one thing for a comedian like Tina Fey to make fun of how inarticulate and fame-hungry Palin is. It’s another thing to say she dresses like a slut. But that’s what David Letterman of the Late Show did last night in his Top 10 roundup of “Highlights of Sarah Palin’s Trip To New York City,” when he said Palin must have “bought makeup at Bloomingdale’s to update her slutty flight attendant look.”

The rest of the list is actually pretty hilarious, but come on, we don’t have to be respectful of women only when we like them. Clip above!

Is Slut-Shaming Carrie Prejean Really Necessary?

When Carrie Prejean lost last month’s Miss USA pageant because (some think) she opposed gay marriage, after which she did an ad for the National Organization for Marriage, rather than attending to her Miss California “duties,” she made it pretty clear where her loyalty lies. It makes sense strategically — her anti-gay marriage stance ruined her appeal for many, but it did increase her popularity with a powerful few. Prejean hedged her bets by distancing herself from the Miss California Organization and lining up with those who had her back. She wasn’t going to be a pageant queen forever, after all.

She should have handed over her crown to someone who was interested in fulfilling those Miss California duties — whatever they are — since she had better things to do. But she didn’t and because of that — and Perez Hilton’s relentless campaign against her — Prejean stayed in the spotlight and the inevitable happened. Topless photos! Of a beauty queen! Who believes in God! The hypocrisy! Let the slut-shaming begin! Keep reading »

Poll: Would You Rather Be Called A Slut Or Fat?

Our society has a lot of thoughts about what women should be, and many of these ideas have to do with weight and promiscuity. The ideal is that a woman is thin and pure. In an article on The Huffington Post, writer Charlotte Hilton Andersen considers whether it’s better to be called a slut or fat — two names that women usually don’t enjoy being labeled. So, which would you rather? Justify your choice in the comments! Keep reading »

Death To This Debate: What Makes A Person A Slut?

One of my most shameful moments as a person was in the fourth grade. I was fairly invisible within my class, but had a desperate desire to be liked. There was another girl in my class who also was not popular and was picked on fairly often for being a little grubby. One day, in what I guess was an attempt to appear cool and funny to my classmates, I picked on her too. I told her she was dirty and that she reminded me of used toilet paper, whatever that means. Then I told her she was a slut. She cried. I still wasn’t popular after that, so the point was lost, and I’ve clearly spent the last 18 years thinking about how mean I was to her. But the thing is, I had no idea what the word “slut” even meant, I just knew it was a bad thing to call a girl. I still don’t know what a slut is and that’s because I don’t think there’s any definition that everyone can agree on. The debate over what makes a person a “slut” is so…ridiculous. Can’t we just retire it already?

The Daily Squeeze: Vain Men, A Dating Exhibit, And A Ridiculous Lawmaker

  • A U.K. survey found that men spend 30 percent more time trying to look good now than they did five years ago, and they spend an average of 30 minutes getting ready to go out, which is the same amount of time that we spend getting ready, as long as we don’t have to shave our legs. [News.com.au]
  • On February 22 and 29, the Wood County Historical Center and Museum in Toledo, OH, will present “Dating Through the Decades,” an event and exhibit that shows how people dated then and now (and where — i.e., speakeasies and soda shops), as well as love notes, valentines, and wedding dresses from the Victorian era to now. Road trip! [Toledo Free Press]
  • Larry Liston, a state Representative in Colorado, lashed out at unmarried teen parents earlier this week. “In my parents’ day and age, they were sent away, they were shunned, they were called what they are. There was at least a sense of shame,” he said. “…They’re sluts. And I don’t mean just the women. I mean the men, too.” [CW2]

    University Publishes Steamy Student Sex Survey

    The smarty-pants at the University of Cambridge conducted a study to find out where all the sluts were hiding at their school. Researchers, through an online survey, asked 1,000 of their students about their sex lives and found that the more students performed in bed, the worse they performed in their classes. Beyond making the grade, they were even able to pinpoint which academic pursuits would keep you a virgin. Half the math department, which ranks #1 in marks, couldn’t get laid even with straight A’s. On the other hand, coed’s pursuing medicine were found to be the friskiest, having the most sexual partners. All in all, the report card shows Cambridge is a school for experimentation, as 60% of students claimed they’ve done it outdoors, 25% are into S&M, and 15% have played a part in group sex.
