If you admit that you haven't cleaned behind your cooker in five years, and a friend calls you a "slut", do you laugh, give him/her one of your looks, or hit said person with an arguably grubby frying pan?

Personally I would just laugh and think no more of it.

I would probably roll my eyes and wonder what cleaning behind the cooker has to do with being a "slut"?

There in lays the problem.  It used to be used as a pretty inoffensive term to mean you don't keep your home/work place clean, and could be aimed at both men and women.  Often it was said by a person to describe themselves.  With the demise of that meaning, the use of the word today now seems horrendous.

No wonder Godfrey Bloom doesn't think he's said anything wrong, but others think that he is a disgrace.

"Slut" used to refer to a slovenly person who didn't keep their home or person clean and tidy. I've only heard elderly people use it that way though. And also my mum for some reason.

...Good thing I found that out before posing for an art class which had a long discussion about whether or not someone they know is a slut, or the conversation would have shocked me a lot more.

It was never inoffensive - the more modern usage is merely an extension of how it was used previously.
The housewife who didn't keep her clean was regarded as breaking her marrige vows as much as if she flirted with other men.

He was sacked be cause he distracted attention from the leaders racist speech.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

Given the age of the person that made the statement, it is most likely he interprests the word, and most of his generation would, as meaning slovenly.
