Slutshaming refers to the moral condemnation of women who lead a sexually self-determined – sometimes permissive – life. In this context, misogynistic insults are used to belittle, shame and disempower the person in question. In this context, women – in contrast to men, who exhibit identical behavior – are deprived of the right to position themselves as sexual beings. Often slutshaming also takes place in connection with rape culture and victim blaming.
