Angry Single Blogger: Joan Rivers, Quit The Slut-Shaming!

What is slut-shaming? And why is Joan Rivers doing it to Chelsea Handler?

If you have yet to hear the term slut-shaming, then you're a wee bit behind the times. Slut-shaming is when someone "shames" a woman for, basically, being sexy or having "too much" sex. For example, you see a girl walking down the street in barely-there clothing and you turn to your friend and you say: "What a slut!" You've just slut-shamed her. You don't know anything about her; you're just judging her by her looks.

Although the term has been making the rounds over the last several months, Joan Rivers took it to a whole new level this week when she publicly slut-shamed fellow comedian Chelsea Handler. Handler had gone on the Howard Stern show — so you know it's going to be real classy — and she made some fairly disparaging comments about Rivers. Basically, she said she didn't think about Rivers ever and for her to "f—k off," after Rivers had originally made some other snide comments about Handler. Confused yet?

In retaliation, Rivers responded with this mouthful of gems (courtesy of The Gloss: Joan Rivers Attempts To Slut Shame Chelsea Handler):

The girl was on her back f--ing the president, we all know that, of the network [Melissa tries to get her to back off from this line of reasoning] She started it! We all know how she got there. She's fine, she's ordinary, she's not a genius…she's an ordinary girl…she f---ed someone high up in the industry and they gave her a break and she's doing okay. I walk over and say "hello, nice to see you." You say…ignored me. Who the f--k do you think you are? That's number one…

She's a drunk, she has her own show, I don't wish her good luck, I don't wish her bad luck, I don't care, I don't think she's particularly funny, but don't you come after me, you whore.
