A new study finds that young women are guilty of bullying their peers using degrading sexual language. Researchers tracked the social lives of 53 women who lived on the same college dorm floor at a Midwestern university during the academic year. The high-status women in that group were primarily from upper-middle class backgrounds and achieved peer status through their participation in the Greek scene.
Researchers found that low-status women who tried to enter the high-status scene risked public slut-shaming.
The result? The researchers found that the higher social status you had, the more hookups you would participate in: Of the low-status girls, five had little or no sexual experience, eight had only been in monogamous relationships, one had primarily had relationships but also participated in hookups and seven had participated in both hookups and relationships.
By contrast, all of the high-status girls had some sexual experience: One had had only monogamous relationships, three had primarily had relationships but also participated in hookups and 19 women had both hookups and relationships.
The bullying tactic has particularly stinging implications considering those women at the top tended to be upper-middle class white women, and the women with lower social status tended not to be. Sadly, girl-on-girl fighting usually ends up empowering men. It just makes it OK for guys to call you sluts and whores. Write to Eliana Dockterman at eliana. MachineHeadz—Getty Images.
