    In today's society, we are faced with a problem that was never prevalent before; a crime that goes unseen like no other, and that is rape. Along with new societal norms, we've adapted a new language, one riddled with bigotry and double standards. Disrespect is at an all time high- women are objectified and thrown around by men- and it is all due to the usage of one word: slut. This word, which is synonymous to prostitute, is used in all areas, from describing an outfit, to body shaming, to degradation of a girl who kissed a boy in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is not the correct usage of the word, however. Webster's Dictionary defines the word as "a woman who has many sexual partners." When presented with this, it is clear that something…

    related to the main topic of slut shaming and the attitudes surrounding it among women of differing status. A criticism that I have is that it focused on white women on that university campus and merely focuses on status as it was linked to class level.

Additionally, the group interviewed was not a representative sample of the population of college women since it only researched one floor on a…
