Hey Ladies...

The internet showed me these pictures: 

"uhhm...internet, you may have a point there. Maybe not in modern times,
 but there is certainly a tradition of double standards." 


This may be the dead horse and what not, but what IS the boy word for slut?
Manwhore just takes a word that still rings of derogatory femininity and adds man. 
Douchebag is actually more of an insult to women, if you think about it,
and player or pimp is often used as a compliment. 

As I see it we have two options:

1. Have some creative types come up with a new, insulting word just
for those types of "loose" men


2. Stop using those words for women whom we perceive that way. 

Seeing as Option 1 would probably go the way of "womyn", (meaning, mostly disappear) I think option 2 is the best bet.

  1. I think the phrase we used to use was "he's got the morals of an alley cat". Not one word and a little less effective but you are probably right about option 2. Who are we to be judging anyway?
