Creds and Cruds for

This term is misogynistic in nature. There is no similar term that is quite as DEROGATORY for a promiscuous man. The word reflects and reinforces a moral double standard against women regarding promiscuity. Granted, I'm not for promiscuity for either gender, but the moral double standard for women is not justified. It only serves to give men more leeway and women more boundaries, something our slightly misogynistic culture doesn't question. Some say the term is justified because "women can get pregnant" but I do not believe that is the reason why people hold that double standard. If a woman were born without a uterus people would still call her a "slut" for sleeping around a lot. Nobody says, "She's a slut! Oh, she's on birth control AND uses condoms? Well then she's less of a slut."
