“Sure. Well, I think that slut and other words that are traditionally considered slurs are very, very powerful because they’re used to dismantle the credibility of victims. And using a victim’s perceived sexuality, whether that is pointing to perhaps their sexual history, the way that they’re attired isn’t the only way that that happens, but it’s a very common one and that resonates strongly with women.
And so I think that language, for example, using the word slut is a really finite way to talk about the very complicated myths that surround sexual violence and victim blaming and to begin taking them apart.“
