Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about SlutWalks. What’s a SlutWalk? (I’m addressing the under-the-rock crowd now.) SlutWalks have been taking place around the globe. They are protests against the misogynistic (i.e., woman-hating) attitude that states that victims of sexual assault are “asking for it” by dressing like sluts. The VICTIM is blamed and the RAPIST is somehow given an “excuse” for acting like a Neanderthal. It’s not the clothes. If it were the clothing, then a woman wearing a burka would be safe, but that’s not the case. It’s the RAPIST’s fault totally and completely. End of story.
So here’s a vid of some of the photos I took at Philadelphia’s SlutWalk, which took place on Aug. 6, 2011. I was glad to see quite a few men there – there were more males present than I had anticipated beforehand. Good for them – those are the real men.
