For example, the classic homewrecker situation where a man or woman is knowingly aware that someone they're interested in has a boyfriend/girlfriend, or a family with kids and a husband/wife. Yet they agree to participate in a sleazy, disgsting situation. People try to say it's the one who's commited that should be at fault. I say THEY ARE BOTH AT FAULT: They were both wrong and they were both nasty ass skanks. They both deserve backlash and aggression. What do you think?
Do you think whores deserve the backlash from society/social circles and aggression from others?
Is it really any different from a not so nice b*tch or asshole reciving backlash from society/social circles and aggression from others?

In my book, a whore is somebody who gets paid to have sex. But I do know the group of low-born, ignorant gutter sluts that you are describing. I think they get scorned by good people and find acceptance only among their moral equivalents. That isn't going to change. I don't see many of them skanky pants troglodytes having a life that I envy.

I think what another person does with their body is none of your damn business and no one has the right to judge people for their sexual activities. HOWEVER, knowingly hurting other people is wrong and people do deserve to be judged for that. Obviously, if someone intentionally tries to or successfully sleeps with a "committed" person, they are in the wrong, and it's not OK to do that, but it's still the person who was supposedly committed that is worse.
I don't like the words whore and slut being used to insult people, particularly women. I think it's demeaning to our gender as a whole, and I think those words bring with them very negative connotations and assumptions about women based on something that has no bearing on their moral standing. How much sex a woman has, with how many people, is her business and hers alone. If her sexual activities hurt other people, it's not the actual sex that does the hurting - it's the context (cheating on a partner, knowingly sleeping with another person's partner, knowingly passing on STI's, etc).
