San Diego SlutWalk

At 2 p.m. on Saturday June 11, thousands of self-proclaimed sluts will gather outside of City Hall for SlutWalk San Diego, a rally and march against sexual violence.

The first SlutWalk was held last April in Toronto, four months after a local police officer told a group of college students that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized." SlutWalk events have since occurred in cities throughout the U.S., Europe, and Australia.

"We believe that all of us, regardless of gender, need to recognize that by allowing the publicly shaming of victims by using their appearance or sexual history against them, it creates a society that accepts and justifies acts of sexual violence," reads a statement from San Diego SlutWalk's organizers, Anastasia Shevchenko, Pamela Doble, and Rebecca Trichel.

According to SlutWalk San Diego's facebook page, more than 2600 men and women, many dressed in short skirts and stripper boots, will attend the march from City Hall to Horton Plaza for a rally with guest speakers and victims of sexual violence.

I wonder if someone who is a "reformed" slut would be allowed to march? Or how about a future slut?

Sorry, Slut-walkers, I have decided to go join The Surfing Madonna's FLASH MOB up in Encinitas for the afternoon on Saturday. I figure that there I will be able to lift up my dress and FLASH Encinitas drivers in honor of the MADONNA! LOL

No woman should ever be attacked, regardless of state of dress. Where I come from, the cop who said that would be slapped--on the back. That's why I'm not there any more. However, I must point out that attacking women would result in worse treatment of the offender by "the boys" or the nearest man than he would get from the law . . .
