Abstract

In a recent investigation of bullying of LGBTQ youth, LGBTQ students who reported higher levels of sexual activity described increased peer victimization in comparison to heterosexual students. Such bullying may be likened to slut shaming, a set of behaviors in which women are humiliated and may experience loss of status for their supposed sexual behavior. Because of the limited empirical literature base documenting and assessing this behavior, this commentary represents an argument for the inclusion of slut shaming as a form of bullying used to victimize LGBTQ students and urges further research in this area.
