Why is "slut shaming" suddenly frowned upon?
Wikipedia: "Slut-shaming is the practice of criticizing people, especially women and girls, who are perceived to violate expectations of behavior and appearance regarding issues related to sexuality. The term is used to reclaim the word slut and empower women and girls to have agency over their own sexuality."

So I get that maybe it's no longer kosher to say these things out loud. I'm as libertine as the next guy, but if I see a girl getting railed behind a dumpster, I'm not gonna say, "Good for her! She's empowered."

Is being a slut now a feminist act of defiance? Are they sticking it to the patriarchy?

I am so lost in the modern world.

when you reject sexual investment as a form of patriarchal thinking, this is where you end up

Sex is awesome. Why should I hate on anyone for getting their F*ck on?

Because people think their sensibilities should matter a hell of a lot more than they really do

Honestly, it is a huge double standard. No one cares if a dude fricks 100+ women, but if a chick sleeps with 100+ men, she basically has to move out of town

We really shouldn't be calling girls "sluts" anyway. All it does is make them less likely to jump in the sack.

Seems counterproductive.

When I first looked at the title, I thought it read "Slut-Slamming".

1. It’s none of your business
2. Why apply a different standard to the guy?

This.

The crusade against "slut shaming" is about the paradigm in which a man who sleeps around is lauded and a woman who sleeps around is shamed.

Now, the evolutionary reason behind this is deep seated: if a man sleeps with a hundred women and they only sleep with him, anyone who gets pregnant is pregnant with his child. A woman who sleeps with a hundred men and they only sleep with her, if she gets pregnant, we (historically) have no idea who the father is. That creates a burden on society and a rift in the tribe that we don't want.

But with the rise of paternity testing, the underlying purpose behind the shaming no longer exists. But, there's still going to be a lag between then and when public sentiment catches up.
