    So the term ‘slut’ is a common word in modern society. If you ask someone what the word means, the replies usually go along the lines of ‘sleeping around’ or ‘being inappropriate’ but what does the word mean to you? Why should it be used as an insult? Because if showing off my body and being confident makes me a slut, then I’m ok with that.

    Hey Frankie,

    I know what you mean, it speaks volumes about the power of language and the damage a word can do.

    We wrote this for the blog as we wanted to understand the word better. The bit I hate is the double standard that exists when it comes to male and female behaviour and how different the same behaviour can be viewed.

    The blog is here if you want to have a read:

    How do you stay confident? Confidence is a big issue and I know there are a lot of people on Community that want to know what other people do.

    Sending positivity

    I personally agree that slut is not a good word to use and/or that it is used in the wrong context. People use the word slut for a women when they are not acting like one or isn’t one to begin with. Also, slut is such a one sided word only used for women but men are praised for it by their peers.
