As a woman, I will chime in with this. Terms like "slampiece" horribly objectify females, and only serves to weed out men who actually respect women from their douchebags counterparts.
Please elaborate how that term objectifies women. I'm curious to know about the long history of its usage in our country where women have been put down by being called a "slampiece." Feel free to provide examples in our culture and media that demonstrate this word as being so objectionable.
OK, now I have to speak up, since you are somehow trying to defend this. Women have been objectified in disgusting ways from the beginning of time, and it still doesn't make it OK. The results of being told that you are a "slampiece"? A little something called "self-fulfilling prophecy", a little thing called "low self esteem related to you seeing your worth as being only related to your ability to sexually please a man", (see also porn that only represents women with bodies that are unattainable by the common woman AKA the cause of eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder), etc etc.
Why pm me the same thing you're going to post in here? So, I'll say it again.
Please educate yourself on how powerful language that diminishes women is. It's not just a word for attractive. It's a power statement, and a way of labeling women by their ability to fuck. It's truly very sexist and immature.
It also makes you sound like an awful bro. Just stop.
I'm sorry LLL, I didn't verify my understanding of a slang term with urbandictionary.com.
I can't tell if you are being an asshole here or not. But since I work in an urban setting, this is how I hear it used 100% of the time. And how probably 100% of women take the term (trust me, Katy Mae and I both have vaginas and boobs, you should probably take our words for it, if we say it is offensive, it probably is).

I am still not even sure how I feel about this word, which when I first thought about it seemed pretty offensive, but I do know I am going to be keeping a keen ear out for it. I wonder if I have just tuned out such a ridiculous term.
Before this discussion, I had only heard one person ever use the term, and he uses it frequently and in the manner described by the urban dictionary link. He also happens to be one of the top 3 biggest d-bags I know. He's a friend.
Where I come from, it's just another way of saying that a female is attractive.
Shut up, no it isn't. Unless you're from a bubble in the greater NYC area, then maybe this is true. The only people who use the word "slampiece" in NY/NYC, like anywhere else in this country, are dimly lit meatheads. Stop using the regional excuse for being stupid.
My buddies and I had been out drinking over the holidays and went back to my friend's mom's house after the bar. We were hunting through the freezer for some pizza rolls or something when, jackpot, box of frozen thin mints. So a swoop the box and we all circle it getting ready to inhale those tiny tiny cookies, but, inside the box, instead of a sleeve of crispy goodness, was a rolled up wad of cash. My friend's mom was storing $7,200 cash in a thin mints box in the freezer (no cookies).
I can't think of a worse food product to store cash in.
