Wiki Version:
<p>Despite the prevalence of the term “slut", no consensus has been reached about what it means to be slutty. A woman can be labeled slutty for multiple reasons, most common of which are appearing or behaving sexually deviant (Tanenbaum, 2015). While no one definition exists, the slutty label almost exclusively derogates the referent in an act known as slut-shaming (Papp et al., 2015). For the purpose of the current study, the implicit association test (IAT; Greenwald et al., 1998) was adapted to assess whether the appearance- or behavior-based definition of slutty was more readily associated with shame based on response latencies. 60 participants (30M, 30F) completed one of two IATs wherein slutty acted as a procedural variable and was manipulated to be represented by appearance or behavior. Although a two-way ANOVA (α = .05) indicated no significant main effects or interaction between the procedural variable and gender, it is noteworthy all participants showed a positive D measure. This finding suggests an association between both definitions of slutty and shame. Also, across gender, men and women do not discriminate by appearance or behavior when labeling an individual as slutty.</p>
