Yeah, I didn't think she genuinely believed or meant anything she was saying. Other than that Chloe is a slut and whatever other slur she dished out. But the bits about the hooking - I don't believe Kate really thinks Parker is in danger around Chloe for those reasons. In Kate's mind she just wants to sabotage Chloe and leverage Jennifer's immaculate moral standards and possible Daniel insecurities to that end.

Kate using Jennifer to expose Chloe's secret past seems so immature and antiquated to me. The fact that Kate is being so hypocritical about this sort of slut shaming is almost beyond the pale and I say this as someone who loves the character of Kate.
To be fair, Kate did
acknowledge her hypocrisy. She even had a pretty good argument -- as far as these things go, anyway -- for why Chloe's actions were worse.
I don't mind what Kate is doing, personally -- it's kind of like arguing that a convicted murderer is a danger to children while knowing perfectly well that you yourself once killed someone in self-defense. In the end, you and the other person each took a life, but your reasons for doing so were completely different. Right or wrong, in Kate's mind, that's basically how she's viewing the situation.
Of course, having the nerve to criticize someone for doing something that you forced them to do is another matter entirely, but that has nothing to do with hypocrisy.
I don't think Kate even views things the way she claimed to when she was explaining why the situations were different. Unless the story has been changed, she knows full well that she had Quinn use blackmail to keep Chloe on the corner.
