Slutting it up is a political act.

When you thought they couldn't be more ridiculous... Liberals can't help themselves. This reviewer seems to be echoing raunch feminists: Three New Films Examine What It Means When Girls Act Out

"These are wildly different films, yet they share a common impulse: to demonstrate indelibly how for girls, behaving outrageously is still a political act."

Based on his review, it may seem that he is saying that these ways of behaving outrageously are just a response to being oppressed and exploited by men. But maybe his generalization is rather tenuous - there doesn't seem to be much of a link between behaving outrageously and reclaiming freedom or autonomy except in the first film, Spring Breakers. The other two are just about "patriarchal oppression."
