What a fabulous idea! :)

One Toronto policeman, Michael Sanguinetti, made the mistake of telling women on a college campus “not to dress like sluts” if they didn’t want to get raped.

It was a stupid and wrong thing to say, obviously. But if it had really been one guy’s mistake, hundreds of women wouldn't be participating in “Slutwalks” that have spread across the continent, and now the globe, and are garnering quite a bit of attention from the media.

According to the Guardian, Slutwalks have already taken place in Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Argentina and Sweden and major events are planned in London, LA, and more this summer. It’s a phenomenon that has gone viral, sporting creative homemade signs, costumes and chants that channel the clever and theatrical elements of feminist protest.

This is interesting, Matty. I'm going to ask our local action-against-rape agency if they're planning one.

Great idea, they had one in Christchurch not that long ago, but apparently there are not enough "sluts" south of ChCh to have a wee "slutwalk".. ;D... but I think it's a great idea.

I think this is a wonderful idea, and a big kick in the balls to people who make remarks like the officer did.  Too bad some people will never accept this theory (sluts don't cause rape, rapists do).  But at least it's getting them "in their face," if you will.  I would love seeing this happen around the area I live in, and would even purchase the types of clothing I used to wear when stripping, to take part.  Suck on this, conservative mutha fuckas!

No big deal, but do you have to make it so obvious?
