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

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

Well then; looks like these two are in a row. Although it's true that Handler was in a relationship with the president of Comcast, the company that owned E! for quite some time, Rivers has no right to call Handler out on her personal life. "Whore" is such a cheap, low blow, and as The Gloss's Jamie Peck pointed out, it's barely one step above calling a woman "fat." It's an uncreative, repulsive and unnecessary way to refer to a woman, any woman.

So the next time you're about to call a fellow female a slut/whore, I suggest you take a breather and hold your tongue. A woman like Handler who is honest and embraces her sexuality shouldn't be shamed for it; if anything she should get a high five. Especially because she slept with 50 Cent. Come on, that's hot.

What do you think of "slut shaming?"
