Is it “Shameful” to be a “Slut?”

Now that women have become CEOs of major companies, have become a dominant force in higher education, and have been on the Presidential tickets of both political parties, feminists have set their aim on the last great frontier: the ability to look and act like a slut with impunity. 

In a study designed to show how bigoted even women are against sluts, Tracy Vaillancourt, a psychology professor at the University of Ottawa, and a PhD student, Aanchal Sharma recorded the reactions of women when they were interrupted by the same woman who was dressed in two very different ways:

Half the participants were interrupted by a thin, blond, attractive woman with her hair in a bun, dressed in a plain blue t-shirt and khaki pants, whom the researchers called “the conservative confederate. The other half found themselves in the company of the “sexy confederate,” the same woman, instead wearing a low-cut blouse, a short black skirt, boots, and her hair sexily un-bunned.

The researchers watched the reaction of the women for eye-rolls, body scans, or sarcastic laughing and rated them with same metric Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein used in their experiments: “bitchiness.”

Vaillancourt found women scoffed at the scantily clad woman more than the conservatively dressed woman.  Apparently, women “are threatened by, disapprove of, and punish women who appear and/or act promiscuous.”

This demonstrates for the first time “slut-shaming in an experimental context” and  is bad.  Very bad.
