But there's no slippery slope

What a silly idea, a slippery slope.

Planned Parenthood's Facebook page, "Planned Parenthood Info for Teens," includes a link to the MTV program Sextra Credit, Episode 2—no, really—with a profound discussion about sluts and sluttiness:

...“A lot of people define slut as someone who has too much sex or too many partners – but according to who?” Francisco asks. “The slut fairy?”
Francisco continues by sharing the “positive” side to being called a slut.
“But did you know that some people use slut in a positive way? Francisco says. “They use it to define a woman who is confident in her sexuality and being the sexual being that she is.” Francisco says. “I personally think there’s a little bit of slut in all of us.”
“Why is it that when girls have lots of sex they’re sluts, but when guys have it, they’re studs? Francisco says. “Not only does that make zero sense, but it’s also totally unfair.
“So hey, stand up for equality,” Francisco says. “Stop the slut-shaming.”
There is also a link to Seventeen Magazine: “We’re taking sex questions over at Seventeen Magazine,” the teaser to the link says...
Just great.  I remember reading Seventeen.  It used to be a classy publication.

Funny how being a liberated woman today is all about her sexual organs. I thought we were supposed to be considered more than a biological pleasure unit. I thought liberation meant equality. Guess I was wrong.
I'm watching (for the second time) the HBO series, John Adams, with my teenaged daughter. She says Abigail Adams is her hero.
Thank God.
