Language confusion

I always interpreted the term “slut-shaming” as “making someone feel ashamed by calling them a slut”.

A lot of people are now trying to avoid that term because they see it as meaning “making someone, who is a slut, feel ashamed of it”.

I have been known to interpret language in weirdly convoluted ways, I know, but ??? It never would have occurred to me to interpret it that way.
