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"?

slob perhaps - but not slut... perhaps your friend's vocabulary requires extending....

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.

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.

Would you care to specify what part of Nigel Farage's speech was racist? That's pretty serious mud to throw these days.

I would slap her/his bottom and ask them to call me Stanley.

Dunno I think if somebody came into my house and made any comment about how I clean/don't clean I would find it pretty offensive no matter what word they used.

Love to know which part of the speech you consider to be racist.

When I was about 10 I first heard the word c*nt. I was convinced it was a small animal like a stoat / ferret etc. I started using this word widely at everybody until one night after my Mum had called me to have a bath I told her not to be a c*nt. She dragged me off the street in front of my freinds and gave me a right hiding, then my Dad found out and I was in even more trouble.
