Why is it sexism to think that someone is a slut, judged by her outfits?
Because its slut-shaming and clothing-policying all roled into one, connecting all of that to the gender specific stereotypes one wants to assign to it. THAT IS Sexism.
Calling someone a slut is basically a more brutal way of calling one shallow,
No. Calling one a slut is using a sexist slur to insult a female-specific target and slut-shame her due to something your "morals" disagree with. That is sexism too.
refering to the many overnight partners the person has. . .
And how sexually active the person is has nothing to do with you. What do you call a male who has ltos of sex? A player of course, how awesome. what do you call a female who does the EXACT SAME THING? A slut, oh what a slut, how horrible.
THAT IS sexism.
Everyone can be as sexually active as they want without some biggot trying to policy their personal life.
The girl in Taylor's video was a bitch despite Taylor's lyrics being annoyingly stereotypical. I would have called that girl a slut too basically. And clearly I wouldn't mean it in literal terms, as in she gets around, duh. It was as if her message was saying that guys want the nice girl or something. Anyway I don't care about your Taylor rambles anymore :| HMPH. Rihanna makes Taylor look like nothing, in terms of sexism.
Just because there's far more offensive examples in the world, does not make it less on what T.Swift is doing.
Also yes, calling a woman who "gets aroubnd" a slut is sexism. A woman who is sexually active usually is just that... a sexually active woman. Not a "slut", "whore" or whatever sexist slur that comes to ones head. it goes against your morals? Well great, that's your problem, but no one has the right to put another person into a stereotypical definition, because by that very idea you ARE downgrading that person to something less than individual, going against the VERY basic human rights of every person alive.
plec is always that egoistical on twitter im glad that fatty blocked my ass
But that means Caroline is sexist character too cause she slut shamed Rebekah in 3x19 or 3x20 I don't remember.
TVD in entirety is sexist show(john's letter? every female character, etc) so yes, it does not surprise me. A lot of S3 Caroline has been overblwon with sexist overtones.

Have you lived in a bubble? All trashtalk is made this way.
A player of course,
No, being called a player is NOT awesome. It might be in the society of so called "pretty boys", but in any other context, it is just as bad, because it implies the exact same.

Just like with every single moral, you mean?
Yes they really don't look too deep into the words.
If i was a vegetarian who thought of eating meat as murder, expression my moral towards it, would be an attempt to meat-shame(just as valid) the person eating the meat into not. . .
