Skip to comments.'Slut Walks' come to the U.S.

BOSTON An international series of protests known as SlutWalks, sparked by a Toronto police officer's flippant comment that women should avoid dressing like "sluts" to avoid being raped or victimized, is taking root in the United States. Some women and men who protest dress in nothing more remarkable than jeans and T-shirts, while others wear provocative or revealing outfits to bring attention to "slut-shaming," or shaming women for being sexual, and the treatment of sexual assault victims. "It was taking the blame off the rapist and on the victim," said Nicole Sullivan, 21, a student at the University of Massachusetts-Boston and an organizer of the SlutWalk planned Saturday in that city. "So we are using these efforts to reclaim the word 'slut.'" The police officer made his comments in January to a group of York University students at a safety forum. He later apologized, but his comments were publicized widely on Facebook and Twitter. They inspired a march in Toronto last month that drew more than 3,000 people, as well as SlutWalks since then in Dallas, Asheville, North Carolina, and Ottawa, Ontario.

>> Could not possibly be more guilty.
Finally a reason to get all slutty...
"...Just your usual gathering of leftists..."
All of a sudden, I’m thinking of the song “Honky Tonk Ba-donk-a-donk”.....
LOL! True. It doesn't take much courage to do that here in the U.S.
Certainly, nobody *deserves* to be raped, regardless of how they are dressed, and the culpability for such acts is purely on the part of the aggressor. Having said that, there are behaviors that will make one a more or less inviting target to a predator.
Take for example a person who posts photos of their house, their home address and vacation plans on Facebook. The make no arrangements to have their property checked while away, and top it all off by leaving their housedoors unlocked. Certainly they are well within their rights to do all of those things.
Now, the neighbor at an adjacent property has a secure fence, an alarm system, NRA stickers on every vehicle in the parking lot, and a number of large, well-chewed bones visibly left in the yard by the two Dobermans.
Neither property owner *deserves* to be robbed, but wouldn't you say that one would be more likely to be, and in fact made themselves so?
Interesting that those doing those marches are also those most most likely to be most jealous of scantily dressed beautiful women...
This is another socialist lesbian agenda of control and possession and jealousy of beauty blaming men for assaults and the very thing these jealous islamistoid sluts would do.
Virtually indistinguishable from the mouth-breathing SEIU demonstrators that I observed in Harrisburg a couple of months back. An uglier gaggle I never saw before or since.
what is the difference between a slut and a skank?
Here are some definitions from google:
Skank may refer to: a slang term for a promiscuous person, usually a woman.
Slut or slattern is a pejorative term applied to an individual who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous. The term is generally applied to women and was an insult or offensive term of disparagement, meaning “dirty or slovenly.”
So this could a “Skank Walk” or a “Slattern Walk” or “People of Easy Virtue Stroll” or “ The Parade of Low Potential, Low Achievers” or “Democrat Convention”.
When I was younger, much younger, I had some appealing young ladies of easy virtue try to take advantage of me. The flesh is weak. Having succumbed, I decided they were not sluts but women of rare insight and intelligence.
“I wish I could say they were following that advice”.
My Mom had a wonderful saying: “Leave something to the imagination. Men have wonderful imaginations and they will “imagine” you better than you are”.
#2 Rapists should be punished as they were historically prior to Coker v. Georgia, 433 U.S. 584 (1977), i.e. death or castration.
#3 Stupidity is not illegal. However, women need to realize that lures work and do not always attract ONLY the "fish" you were hoping to catch.
Those are the most over dressed sluts I’ve ever seen. Except for the fat guy in the front. But really, if you go to a gathering of sluts and the only person showing some skin is a fat guy, what good is it?
They wish. *yuck*
I guess common sense is no longer common?
They have a dream.
LOL! Stand along the parade route and hold up signs saying “1” to “3” depending on how bad it is.
If he doesn’t get out of that wheelchair and walk then it really does require a miracle.
You taught them well. They will figure it out eventually.
They had similar slut walks in France, but targeted against the muslims who would actualy rape the girls. But the French intel and blame America first crowd of cowards are now kind of blaming US conservative men instead. It’s much more convenient. Our liberals will love it of course. Any such political self hate what not liberal/RINO product is greatly appreciated these days in this country.
besides, real sluts can’t walk... Strait that is.
Ever have a Pig Party?
How do we tell rapists, “Don’t rape a slut”? Then again, IF I were in that business, I haven’t seen one SLUT WALKER I’d touch, even with your ....
The last time we were in Denmark we saw signs all over downtown at women's clothing stores that said “Slut Sale!”
I found the signs worthy of a few photos and jokes with my wife. However, in Danish, the word “Slut” as in “Slut Sale” means End or Final Sale.
So I hope that these Slut Walks are truly last feminist walks or marches.
