In response to “A Letter To A One-Night-Stand..”, I have written a poem:
WHAT IS A SLUT?
Slovenly, promiscuous woman,
Whose morals are, in sex, like those of a man;
Shamed and ridiculed by all,
Even by those same men who gave her a call.
This term is used derogatively;
In such context, said so negatively.
However, may I advance a new definition?
A woman who, simply, enjoys the acts of procreation
In all forms, be it with multiple partners or no.
Could it be that one day, this word will be seen positively,
Or, at least, less derogatively?
I hope so.

As my fellow blogger Belasarius wrote in his article, “Slut!” (http://belasarius.com/2013/10/16/slut/comment-page-1/#comment-405):
“I’m here to proclaim I’m a reclaimer. To be a slut is not always a bad thing.”
