Are You A Slut?

You might be surprised by the answer, I was.

This awesome infographic, supplied courtesy of Mother Jones, is an attempt to fill you in on some of the insurance birth control debate that have been going on.

Evidently some of our elected officials, and waaay too many talking heads, have been dismissive of women's testimony on this issue.  If you aren't already aware of the asshattery going on, you can look it up elsewhere because I don't have the time or energy to get into details.


One detail I am willing to discuss is that some of these same people figured they could easily dismiss anything women have to say by simply labeling them sluts.  Without approving or condoning of these women I thought it might be important to to quantify what these officials/talking heads considered a slut.  For all we know they could be talking about sex-addicted doggers who prefer to do their activities in school yards during recess.  Of course, I have no idea why anyone would want them to be testifying, but I'm sure dumber things have happened.....this is congress after all.

If you need to see if you are a slut, as if self-identification was sufficient, you might want to use this handy-dandy flowchart:
