Lately my brother has been into this girl who openly talks about how she dates around and has had sex with a former boyfriend a few times, but has always used protection. My parents don't like her and called her a slut. I got mad and impulsively said they have no right to speak of another person that way, I told them there's nothing wrong with having sex as long as you are responsible, etc. they got mad and took away my phone. I am now typing this on my iPad. Not sure if what I did was right I think I could've gone about it in a better way.

"they took away my phone. i am now typing this on my ipad" i'm sorry but i completely lost it at that line XD they take away your phone, they think they have you, you just casually carry on on your ipad XD thats priceless lol
anyway, to answer the question, you were right to speak your mind. your parents dont even know this girl yet they're calling her a slut. real mature. calling a child a slut. as a grown up, especially as a parent, thats really dumb to do. kudos for you for speaking your mind and standing up for her :31

I don't think it was so much what you said as much as HOW you said it. By getting angry and speaking disrespectfully, you caused them to over-react. No, they probably shouldn't use words like 'slut' either but they that's not for you to correct.. particularly not in anger. You can still probably fix this if you go to them with a humble approach of, "I recognize I was in the wrong by talking to you that way, I should've shown more respect, and I'm sorry that I reacted in that manner." They may or may not reduce the 'phone' sentence but they'll gain more respect for you that you are accepting responsibility for your actions and apologizing genuinely for them.1
