I do appreciate the page on your site explaining your use of the word 'slut' and what you mean when you refer to it. I agree, too. But then there's also this: Slut: a woman who likes sex as much as a man.
To me, that always felt wrong somehow though I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Certainly, it wasn't the word slut. Or whatever meaning of it or the feelings it may evoke.
But I know now. It's the referral to 'men' in that context that bothers me. Do really all men 'like' sex as much as women who refer to themselves as or are called sluts? What does 'like' mean anyway: 'feel about', 'handle', 'care about'? Does it mean that men are somehow less complicated or challenged (as in 'they just like sex, don't they?')? I don't think so. If anything, when it comes to sex, many men are even more challenged than women, and not just in recent times. And many are seriously damaged, probably beyond repair. So, 'Slut' and 'Men' in the same sentence makes things just unnecessary complicated, no?
Maybe one day there will be a man exploring his journey by way of his own 250 film art project. Until then, how about this:
Slut: a woman who likes sex, uninhibited.
Or whatever :-)
