So I live in a co-ed house. On one side I have a Chinese guy and on the other I have a French Canadian girl. In a conversation with two of my favourite people in the house ( American guy, but practically Swedish and Jersey girl from Russia), the question came up, what why is it that a girl who sleeps around is a slut (negative), and guy doing the same is a playa' (positive)?
Here is the answer my Swedish friend gave. Being in university, it's quite naturally a metaphor:
Think about it this way: If a lock can be opened by many keys, it's a bad lock. But if a key can open many locks, it's a master key.
Any thoughts on this? Anyone?
