For the past ten to fifteen years, senior high school girls at Millburn High School in New Jersey have created a so-called “slut list,” a degrading list of slurs against the incoming freshman girls.
A reporter for Good Morning America obtained the list from this year that singled out 21 thirteen and fourteen-year-old girls and contained vulgar descriptions next to each of their name.
“I’m so desperate and hairy that I’ll give you [drugs] for free if you get with me,” one entry read.
“Keeping up with the family tradition, [blank] me … and knock me up,” read another.
Although many parents have complained, some of the students have told GMA that the list is just in good fun.
“The list is just a silly tradition that is cyclical. It won’t stop because seniors feel the need to initiate the incoming freshman. For all the parents who are complaining about the list, you have to wonder what they’re going to do when their daughters are seniors making it,” said one Millburn senior in a Facebook message.
