Slutwalk – Because nothing screams “EQUALITY” like walking around in public with duct tape over your nipples.

I don’t get it. I really don’t. How did feminism turn into this?

Hundreds Take Part In “Slut Walk” Against Sexual Assault

Several hundred people rallied and marched in downtown Chicago Saturday during an annual event called Slut Walk Chicago.

Some of the mostly women in the crowd went topless with some well-placed x’s on their breasts made of duct tape.
The event is part of an international “Slut Walk” movement.

It started several years ago after a police officer in Canada told some college students that woman should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized. His words sparked outrage.

The women who organized the local event say they’re fighting what they call rape culture and supporting victims of sexual assault.

“The idea that acts of violence can be excused due to a victim’s dress, state of intoxication, location and sexual history is absolutely ridiculous and feeds into a cultural view of sexual assault as not a real crime,” said organizer Liz Sheridan.

After the rally, they marched through the streets chanting, “Whatever we wear, wherever we go, yes means yes, no means no.”


My 80 year old mom is one of those second-wave feminists from the Sixties and Seventies, so I called her and asked her to explain slutwalking to me. She said:

I don’t have a clue. I told you not to bother me with this stupid stuff when I’m watching my shows.

Can any of you explain this slutwalk thing to me?

I do understand one thing. Any guy who participates in a slutwalk is hoping to get laid, or at least wants to see some boobs.

Apparently the highlight of the event was when they busted open a “rape culture” pinata filled with condoms. That’s another silly idea I will continue to heap scorn upon.

  1. The Klown says:

    They seemed to be protesting a lot of other stuff too. It was your standard leftist rent-a-crowd.

  2. well, as the parent of people that age, I suspect that this type of protest has a hefty element of parental rebellion in it. You know, the kind that says that “this is OUR form of feminism.” Makes little sense to me either. My first impression is that although the cause is just and serious, the form that the protest takes is a huge turnoff (or turn on to young men or women) and that the message is lost in the optics. The biggest message sent is youthful rebellion. Sigh. Not that I ever indulged in anything like that at that age…….

    • Lulu says:

      It is arrested development because people that age should have gotten over parental rebellion by now. The continual delaying of adulthood is very bad for society. When they reach 30 and haven’t “evolved” past the pimply insolence and “look at me!” stage it probably won’t happen. I personally think a lot of it has to do with casual but heavy regular drug use because it freezes many people in that mindset when they start using (some even regress). That is my opinion and it is probably flawed but comes from decades of observation.

      • much has been written about this new generation and at least in the things I’ve read, the consensus is that in general they are taking much much longer to reach adult benchmarks than previous generations. The reasons given include 1) the economy and 2) the helicopter parenting kept them in a cocoon much longer and they are breaking out later to express themselves. It’s hard to imagine this phenom, but there it is……

        • Lulu says:

          I am sure there are many factors and all of those you stated are certainly true. But the substance abusers have the most problems even if they stop using because they are so often behind developmentally in many areas that really harm the rest of their lives. I hate seeing it and how much damage is caused for just being dumb, naive, and silly for a period in their formative years. It dogs them in ways they don’t understand when they are just kids acting out and enablers say it won’t hurt them because they did it too. It does hurt them.

        • Monster from the Id says:

          I think the foremost reason is the continuing disappearance of good jobs (by “good”, I mean “reasonably safe and pay enough to support a family”) from the economy due to offshoring, outsourcing, and the increasing ability of machines to replace mental as well as physical labor.

          Policy shifts could arrest the first two causes (if the government were sufficiently independent of Big Business, which it is not), but not the third. Eventually, we will either need to create job programs like the old WPA, or else accept that technical progress has changed the world so much that the economy no longer needs all able-bodied and able-minded adults to work, and so adopt a “social wage” (guaranteed basic income) and other survival guarantees, which would also allow us to redistribute work into smaller portions among individuals–since the people who do have work now would no longer depend on their jobs for their entire livelihoods, they could afford to share the work with other people.

          The Right will NOT like either of those ideas. 😛

          • elliesmom says:

            I think you’re wrong about the right not liking those ideas. I think they’d be fine with a three day work week if everyone worked three days. What they object to is someone digging ditches five days a week so someone else can sit on his ass and get free stuff from the government.

          • Somebody says:

            Your description of the economy also plays into the student debt issue. I watched my daughter decide on and obtain a graduate degree for the above reasons. By the time she got her degree, a gazillion other people saw the same avenue so wages in the field are depressed…….supply and demand.

            There is a constant cry for STEM graduates, oh my goodness we have to have more H1B visas because there aren’t enought STEM graduates. That’s horse hockey, there is a glut of STEM graduates. Kids for almost 20 years now have heard that’s the degree they should obtain, not enough people in the US with STEM degrees. That’s simply not true there are over a million US born STEM graduates working in other fields and about that many that can’t find a job.

            My son was just telling about a friend of his from college that still works at an electronics store because he can make more money on sales commission than he can in the STEM field. That’s what offshoring, outsourcing and the influx of H1B has done to the STEM field. That’s only one area, there are others. Both parties care more about their big money donors at the COC and elsewhere than they care about us or our children.

          • Monster from the Id says:

            Too many employers don’t want employees who are citizens because citizens have rights. It’s so much easier to underpay and abuse illegal aliens. 👿

            That’s why we need regulations, folks. Human beings are sinners, and so will exploit other human beings when they can get away with it. Hobbes was right.

      • Constance says:

        I don’t know about the drug use. I was a heavy pot smoker in my late teens and gave it up because I had to be at work at 6am and not hung over or groggy. Also my wages were so low I had to live 35 minutes from my job, an hour in traffic so I had to get up at 4:30 to be at work by 6:00am. The drug use didn’t arrest my development into a an independent adult.

        • Somebody says:

          I concur Constance, but they say that the pot these days is completely different than the stuff from the “good old days”. Maybe that’s the difference???

          BTW you had a car, I’m jealous! I walked to work or rode the bus, but oh my I had some damn fine looking legs!!

    • Constance says:

      I think you are right about the major element of parental rebellion, what I don’t get is why twenty something people are still bothering to rebel against their parents or the older generation. I did rebel and I also moved out 3 months after turning 18 and my parents didn’t pay my rent. That meant I was so busy with my collection of crap jobs and school that rebellion kind of faded from my life.

    Duct taped nips ? OUCH !

    I still don’t get the dancing vaginas and that message about the government to mind their own business, but want the govt to give them free contraception and pay for abortions. Sort of a mixed message there too.

    • Lulu says:

      We don’t have logic 101 anymore in schools. The teachers don’t take it, No one takes it anymore. My logic prof in college was a de-frocked German monk. Boy howdy was he a weirdo but a very good teacher. He looked like Martin Luther!

    • 1539days says:

      That duct tape thing is something a person should only have to do once to learn their lesson. With those people I’m not so sure.

  6. Kathy says:

    When I was in school, logic was taught as part of philosophy. But that was light years ago–sounds light it needs to be reinstalled.

    • Lulu says:

      It should be taught in high school as a public service. Maybe a baby version in junior high also if parents are not teaching it at home.

  7. elliesmom says:

    From Nana – who taught me how to date responsibly. “Dress like a lady, act like a lady, get treated like a lady. Dress like a slut, act like a slut, get treated like a slut.” Women can say they have the right to walk around town scantily clad, get drunk, use foul language, and have sex with as many men as they want. And they do. But they can’t dictate what other people, both women and men, think of them. Is it OK to rape them? No. But I’m more likely to be killed in a car accident if I’m driving 90 miles an hour than if I’m driving 35, and if I don’t want to get killed, I need to slow down. Somethings are just reality.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I remember my parents freaking out over boys with Beatle haircuts thinking they were just walking rapey machines. Of course, those were the days we had dress codes in public schools when they were actually preparing us for the real world. Girls couldn’t wear pants and your skirts had to cover your knees.

      • elliesmom says:

        When I taught middle school, the dress code was pretty much cover the essentials and don’t wear offensive tee shirts. But I remember my elderly Latin teacher saying dress codes were important because how we were required to dress showed us how we were expected to behave. Children shouldn’t come to school dressed for play when school became our work. Kindergarten and first graders, in her mind, should come dressed for play because at that point, school should be play. After that, the dress code should keep sliding until high school seniors should be coming to school like it was their full time job. A lot of people were afraid of her because she was a very demanding teacher, but I found her charming, and probably the most liberal teacher (real liberal) I had in high school. She knew I bicycled all over town, which I did because my mom didn’t drive, but not to school. When she found out it was because I couldn’t ride “modestly” in a skirt, she got the dress code changed to include ‘bicycle skirts”, otherwise known as culottes back then.

        • Lulu says:

          Remember when teachers “dressed up” like professionals? I had teachers who wore suits. Now they wear shorts and flip flops and wonder why the kids treat them badly or don’t listen to them. When I worked in law offices my work dress philosophy was “don’t fuck with me” which included my employers. It worked! I was always the one who got taken to court as staff.

          • elliesmom says:

            I was always expected to dress professionally. Not necessarily a suit -but a nice dress or skirt or blouse. No jeans. Nice trousers and a sweater. I wore a lab coat most days so I could keep my nice clothes nice in a science lab. I’m just starting to accumulate a slob wardrobe in retirement. Maybe it’s a regional thing, but the expectations were the same in the big city school and the small town school for me.

          • piper says:

            Remember when they called you by your title Mrs, Miss or Mr. + last name not by your first name

          • leslie says:

            My son teaches 6-8th grades. He wears nice pants a nice shirt and tie to work -every day. He looks serious and is really handsome. I think both being serious and good looking help when you’re teaching those adolescents. He shows them respect by dressing like that and they know it. And they, in turn do the same to him.

  8. Monster from the Id says:

    “Culture Pinata” WBAGNFARB (would be a great name for a rock band). :mrgreen:

  9. threewickets says:

    Think this style of protesting is taught in college now as part of the standard multi-cultural, multi-sexual, multi-gender, multi-ethnic, multi-everything society and socialness academic curriculum.

    • threewickets says:

      Also Pew says that women 18-34 today represent around 10% of the US total population, whereas the same demographic represented closer to 15% of the population during the Second Wave 70s. So women’s groups may have to work harder to be heard, although the internet is probably a big help. Problem is they don’t have any clear national leadership.

      • elliesmom says:

        I think there’s no national leadership because there’s no unifying agenda. It could be a chicken or the egg thing, but I don’t think so. A lot of 18-34 year old women are married and have children. They’re more focused on protesting Common Core than on slut dressing being accepted. I interact a lot with them in the sewing world. Other young women in that age group are either working their way up the corporate ladder or trying to get their foot on the first rung, and they understand you don’t get a job or keep a job dressed in duct tape. Serious young women in college who are crusaders who want to change the world are raising money for causes they believe in or taking on engineering projects or medical or educational projects in impoverished areas of the world. They don’t have time to walk down the street half-naked. I know a lot of 18-34 year old women. I just saw one off to Paraguay to teach for a year. They are bright, energetic, loving and caring. Beautiful inside and out. The women who dance in vagina costumes or who walk down the street naked attract the media – like a freak show at a carnival.

        • The Klown says:

          The modern feminist movement is just a subsidiary of the Democratic Party. Feminist advocacy groups exist solely to help Democrats raise money and win elections.

          • Lulu says:

            And their mentality is “look at me”, “pay attention to me”, or “bad attention is better than no attention”. I find them sad.

        From my Nana’s dating advice – “You want marry a drunk? Get yourself picked up in a bar”. She was widowed young and started dating again about the same time I did. We even went on a double date once. She was hilarious.

  17. 1539days says:

    I especially love how slutwalks started because of something one police police officer said years ago. Talk about letting a man dictate what you do.

    What you wear isn’t an invitation for sexual assault, but you’re not going to meet the best men by dressing in hot pants and halter tops all the time.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think the true criminality of Rape-Rape (h/t Whoopi) is being watered down with all the definitions and mixed messages about men’s intentions. They can’t even try to “round the bases” anymore without being considered a potential rapist.

  21. WMCB says:

    I judge by results. When I look around, I don’t see happy, powerful young women confidently going about their lives. I see fearful, angry, weak young women increasingly agitated over nothing, offended and terrified of so much as a glance from men, and yelling from the rooftops that unrestrained promiscuous sexuality MUST be empowering and good for them, even though it is demonstrably not so. Curiously, the current state of affairs is working out very well for predatory male pick up artists, however.

    • elliesmom says:

      People are more fearful, in general, today. It’s not unusual or unexpected that a generation that was never allowed to go outside and play because of mostly imaginary child molesters would expect to find a rapist around every corner.

      • WMCB says:

        Yeah, the whole child abduction thing is hysteria. Child abductions are fairly rare, and when they DO occur, something like 60% of them are a non-custodial parent, not a stranger.

        • 1539days says:

          I did the numbers a while back and figured out that the chance of a child being killed in a school shooting is about 1 in 30 million, or 40 times lower than the chance of being struck by lightning. Preventing things is a good idea. Worrying about everything with a tiny potential of occurring leads to madness.

          • DandyTIger says:

            But if you could save one child, wouldn’t you? Progs have actually asked me that. Of course I said fuck no. It’s the same argument used to get rid of democracy and civil liberties entirely.

          • 1539days says:

            The other side of that is hiring a resource officer for every school would cost $3 billion a year, and that would not guarantee they could stop every shooter. That’s $3 billion to potentially save 1.6 kids.

    • DandyTIger says:

      If just looking at a woman can be rape, then the term rape no longer has meaning.

  22. erin says:

    I have lived in a country where being female and walking anywhere or riding mass transit without a man is an invitation to begang raped, you will be viewed as at fault for having been there. This is a place where to “swarming” by mem and anyone who tries to stop the event runs the risk of being beaten by the crowd observing the swarming. Swarming is euphemistically referred to as sexual harassment in the press there, however it is really a form of sexual assault.

    I give the women in that country great credit for participating in the annual slut walk. There is the potential for real harm and cultural blow back if you participate in the Slut Walk there.

      An interesting take on our practices, lives and Muslim immigrants – in Sweden, many women will go topless sunning themselves after the long dark winter and wear skimpy clothes to party in which raised more than eyebrows in the Muslim communities – almost 95% of rapes are committed by Muslim men.

    NYP:

    At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much.

    It turns out the man is completely unmockable.

    We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.”

    “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab onto — certainly not a flaw or hook that you can caricature. [Al] Gore had these ‘handles,’ so did Bush, and Sarah Palin, and even Hillary had them. But with Obama, it was the phenomenon — less about him and more about the effect he had on other people and the way he changed their behavior. So that’s the way I wrote him.”

    • 1539days says:

      You know in the old days before high definition, they would put gauze or even Vaseline over the camera lens to make certain actresses look flawless (and weirdly ethereal). I saw this a lot on the original Star Trek.

      As opposed to rose colored glasses, they are actually putting cheesecloth over their eyes so the flaws disappear. Oh, and did you notice the rock is Obsidian? All they see is the black.

      Holy shit. And he’s not even being sarcastic. Not even a little.

      • Kathy says:

        I can think of many ways to mock him. They are afraid to make fun of him because it will boomerang back onto them. Basically these comedians will look lame for latching onto him in the beginning. Example–mock his prissy walk and when he blows up his lips and when he says the same things over and over ( let me be clear, some say, they call me names–the drinking game phrases). What about the perfectly creased suits and the golfing and the pretentiousness –that alone should be comedy gold. And what about the froufrou ness–his need to be with celebs and ‘important people. I could go on and on–and the droning on speeches .

        • Somebody says:

          I’ll add to that, how about how aloof he is……supposedly cool, but he’s just stone cold and heartless IMO. Gaffes, oh my he’s had plenty of gaffes. Could you imagine the skit SNL would have done about W if he had seen dead people at a memorial day event or said corpsemen, or 57 states? His red lines and the whole Putin situation are just begging for mockery. His vacations…….the way ValJar controls him……oh my the possibilities are endless. All of that and we haven’t even touched on Michelle or those whole dynamics, talk about comedy gold.
