“…Flowchart: Are You a Slut?…”

“…Are you a slut?

It’s a question that, to be perfectly honest, we would have felt more than a little uncomfortable asking as recently as a few weeks ago.

For one, there’s the word itself—as misogynistic an insult as you could conjure.

And there wasn’t much of a peg – what with the rest of the world focused on more pressing issues – like Israel’s threats of conflict with Iran – and jokes about Mitt Romney’s dog (this is a particularly good one).

But then conservative icon Rush Limbaugh—who was once caught trying to bring 29 100 mg Viagra pills with him to the Dominican Republic —

- spent three days ripping into Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke (rhymes with “look”), calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute” for testifying before Congress about birth control -

- and suggesting that he’d like her to send him a sex tape.

The #iamnotaslut Twitter campaign went viral; Limbaugh began losing sponsors (20, at last count).

And now we can’t seem to talk about anything else but “sluts.”

Seriously, just take a look at this chart from BuzzFeed…”
