    So I just finished reading this entry and thought of something. The original meaning of “slut” was “someone who doesn’t bathe/is really dirty.” (Same with “whore.”) In Judaism bathing is super important. There’s even rules for it as well as washing hands. Some people think the origin of anti-Semitism is the fact the Jews were better at surviving things like the bubonic plague because of the fact they bathed.

    So maybe when they call Jezebel a slut they don’t mean she slept with a lot of men but rather that she had nasty BO, greasy hair, and fleas.

  • I don’t think so. The connotation is very much that she was a temptress and led men astray. – even to modern day. Although the cleanliness aspect is an interesting angle to view things from…!
