A slut is as a woman who has frequent casual sex with multiple men. The concept of slutiness is highly relative, as a woman that today would be considered relatively chaste (say having three pre-marital partners) would have widely been considered unmarriageable in the past.
Some incels falsely conflate sluts with whores, the latter only being interested in financial exchange (ie a prostitute).
Sluts today still have a stigma. This is because many are heartbreakers, have psychopathic traits, and destabilize long-term partnerships. If everyone was a slut, and incels got in on the action, few incels would really have a problem with sluts, however this is not the case. By virtue of the fact that some sluts exist who will fuck nearly anyone, sluts have the potential to solve the incel problem.
The theoretical slut
In the purest sense, a slut is a woman who just wants lots of sex – she does not care who she has sex with at all. However, even after the sexual revolution, this type of woman is exceptionally rare, and the sexual revolution did not produce enough sluts to handle the inceldom caused by women dropping out of sex and marriage altogether.
Still, many incels still seek them out, promote sluthood (the slutpill), or even have usernames on forums like, "SupportLocalSluts".
In the mid-2010s many women took it to the streets to make it VERY well known that are, "promiscuous".
Incel types took offence at this display as it was occuring in the midst of a sex recession and acceleration of inceldom. They are protesting being made to feel bad being promiscuous with wagecucks and chads so who cares about their dumb parades?
The common “slut”
Many incels feel that the shallow nature of dating apps have driven, “sluts”, to have sex with only attractive men. These “common sluts” are girls ranging from 4-7 in attractiveness, and take turns getting fucked by multiple 8+/10 males. By doing this they boost hypergamy, leaving their looksmatches incel. Once a woman’s vag has been loosened up by such a variety of penetration, she sometimes begins needing two partners at the same time to feel anything; thereby becoming a double-stuffer.
History of sluts
Non-college-educated sluts peaked in 1970, and since then promiscuity among that group has decreased.
Male aversion to female promiscuity
There is some evidence that a preference for chaste mates may be partially hardwired in men, owing to their evolutionary history. A promiscuous woman is a poor investment for a long-term relationship, due to the greater risk she may cuckold the man, or indeed may already have dependent offspring that compete with his own potential offspring for resources. Promiscuous woman also pose a much higher STD risk. Research has shown that this preference is so ingrained in men that they even prefer less promiscuous prostitutes (later age of first sex and less years spent in the profession), rewarding them with higher payment for their services.
Men often rate chastity and especially marital or relational fidelity as one of the most valued traits in a female marriage prospect, though the aversion for women with a low pre-marital partner count is lower in more sexually permissive cultures, such as Sweden.
On the contrary, in short term contexts there is evidence that female promiscuity is moderately desired by men in a female partner, due to perceptions of her being 'easier' and there being a lower likelihood of her seeking a commitment from the man.
Female aversion to female promiscuity
On the other hand, women also have a general dislike towards highly promiscuous women for several reasons. One is that they present a risk of destabilizing their current relationship by seducing their male partner. Another, possibly more important reason, is that women being too generous with their sexual favors “lowers” the “price” of sex. This is related to Sexual economics theory. In other words, if women are overly promiscuous, then this makes sexual access easier to obtain. This makes men less willing to invest into committed relationships and invest large amounts of resources in women.
This female tendency towards slut-shaming can also be explained by intrasexual competition. If female chastity is valued by males (at least for long-term partners) than women can derogate and reduce the mate value of female rival by implying that a female rival is overly promiscuous, especially in relation to themselves. This strategy can therefore help a woman reduce the mate value and social status of a female rival, while possibly also making it easier to secure a particularly desirable male partner for herself.
There is indeed evidence that the female hatred of sluts may be even greater than males dislike of sluts (likely due to female intrasexual competition), for example studies have found that woman have more negative perceptions of sluts than men, women dehumanize and seek to harm promiscuous women, and women write the majority of tweets that contain anti-slut slurs.
