The Slutwalk movement has made it to Australia, and some people are finding the title a little hard to swallow. Someone has just called me a “chauvinistic cuntsack” on Facebook because I disputed her claim that “slut” is a “bad word” that can never be reclaimed.
To her, this was obvious, because “slut” refers to people having promiscuous sex and you could never call “a chick” or “your missus” a slut. Der. Guess she’s never met a gay man or a sex worker in her life. And no, I’d never call someone else that word, but I’ll happily support someone who uses it to make a point about a cop who blames women for ‘inviting’ rape.
I’m forced to reply here, because after sending me that misogynist little missive, she blocked me so I couldn’t reply. Good thing you’re pretty, lady, because otherwise, you’d be venal, dumb and ugly.
