I know it's in bad form to have my first post be a "please help", but I assure you I'm a long time fan of Scarleteen, and I do my best to support and promote it as much as I can. I also wrote this article and this one for the site.
Anyway, I'm trying to help a friend out with a documentary she's working on. Her name is Andrea Dorfman, and she directed Parsley Days and Love That Boy, and now she's working on a project about The Myth of the High School Slut. She needs interview subjects, especially Canadian ones. Here's the gist:
quote:High school is a tribal place - and often a cruel one. Divisions are drawn between jocks, cheerleaders, nerds, drama geeks, Goths, etc ...
But there is one person who exists outside the cliques, who is never welcomed into any group. She is the girl with the reputation, the one boys are drawn to and other girls avoid.
She is the high school slut, and Slut: The Documentary, explores her experience and her legacy.
Many people remember her from their high school days - some can even recall her name - but few have thought about her significance: Why is she such a universal figure? Has she done the things of which she is accused? How is her reputation created in the first place?
Are you or were you labeled a slut in your high school? I am producing a television documentary on the mythology of the high school slut and would love to talk to you.
