Today, The View discussed a high school hazing tradition whereby senior girls compile a public "slut list" of incoming freshmen. For the girls, "slut" doesn't have a negative connotation. Guest co-host E.D. Hill says "that's a sick way to think."

As Joy mentioned, many of the girls like being on the list, and are upset if they are not. Unsurprisingly, Hill—a conservative, and former Fox News anchor—believes that the term "slut" is always an insult "whether it's deserved or not," because, she says, "[Sex with multiple partners] is not what we were put on this earth to do."

But, as Whoopi pointed out, this is a generational thing. Younger women have a different relationship with that word. (If "slut" is the only feminine word we have that's comparable to "stud," then it should be treated as such.) Perhaps one good thing about high school girls not taking the word seriously is that they remove the power from it, so if someone calls them a slut, they aren't offended or damaged by it. Regardless, even though Hill seems to be certain about what she's supposed to do "on this earth," it's not her place to decide what other women are "supposed" to do.
