make them stop 

More exciting television from Harpo entertainment:
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Oxygen has ordered eight episodes of "My Best Friend Is a Big Fat Slut," a comedy about two women trying to make it in Hollywood.

The deal, with producer Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, marks the female-skewing cable channel's first original scripted series. It is set for an April premiere.

Originally titled "My Roommate Is a Big Fat Slut," the show chronicles the lives and loves of Jane (Joy Gohring) and Marjorie (Bree Turner (news)), two twentysomething Minnesota transplants to Los Angeles who are pursuing the glamorous Hollywood life. It was written by Claudia Lonow (ABC's "Less Than Perfect").

"We like to think of it as 'Friends' uncensored," said CWM principal Caryn Mandabach.
Doesn't branding someone as a slut run contrary to the credo of networks like Oxygen? Aren't women supposed to be free to make their own choices without condemnation from society?

In protest of such an anti-progressive and misogynist sexual condemnation of a female character I'm going to abstain from watching the Oxygen network for one whole week.

That is, if I even get the Oxygen network.
