  •  I don't find it entertaining at all (1+ / 0-)

    and indeed I find it kinda distasteful.  Which is why I didn't watch it.  I don't feel any need to judge her on any level beyond that of my personal taste, or to say that she shouldn't be doing what she's doing because I wouldn't enjoy watching it.

    You apparently don't think her performance could be described as slutty? Please tell me what would be, then?
    This is exactly my point.  Nothing should be described as slutty, ever.  The word "slut" and its derivatives reflect an attitude that says everybody is entitled to judge women for expressing any aspect of their sexuality, and that women who are judged to be sluts (a) should be made to feel ashamed of it, and (b) do not deserve respect on any level.

    You shouldn't have been called slutty when you were younger, and for the exact same reasons, Miley shouldn't be called slutty now.  Not because I approve of her behavior, or because I think anybody else should approve of it, but because I think everybody needs to stop acting like our approval or disapproval of her behavior should matter.
