Whore has many modern meaning. The Italian Preist used it to has denigrate your character because you, in his opinion, denigrated God’s house. Mothers occasionally call their daughter a whore because they have broken some serious rule that should never be broken. A public figure may call themselves a whore as a sense of empowerment. You may even call yourself a chocolate whore if that’s where your indulgences are focused.

The power of the word whore has been diluted yet it still has that punch. A woman will never forget the time she was called a whore in anger. Even if the person calling her a whore was unjustified calling her that the pain remains. It’s a very powerful word and has serious long term consequences. I wish the word didn’t exist.
