Overnight Thread

By Wyatt Earp | June 11, 2011

Send in the sluts.

In a move right out of the Twilight Zone, women across the planet are taking part in SlutWalks – marches where the participants dress as slutty as possible before yelling at the men who stare at them. The SlutWalks are supposed to be empowering.

To whom, I have no idea.

The latest desperate bid for attention by publicity-starved feminists is to sponsor SlutWalks – events at which scantily clad women take to the streets enmasse to claim their “right” to dress and behave however they want or to go anywhere at any time without the risk of being sexually assaulted or deemed to be streetwalkers. Granted, the feminists have gotten a lot of mileage out of their attempt to displace the romance of Valentine’s Day with their crude and brassy V-Day performances but if anything illustrates just how outrageous and passe the movement has become, it is the feminists’ delusional attempt to take back the term “slut.” (H/TFerrell Gummitt)

Taking it back? Wow, they must have seen Clerks 2.

British consumers have a nasty habit of serving their dinner guests food that has been dropped on the floor or past the recommended date for its sale and consumption, a new survey showed Friday.

The poll of 2,000 consumers, commissioned by Italian pasta brand Giovanni Rana, found 15 percent of respondents admitted to serving “floor pie,” food that had fallen on the floor, and 10 percent knowingly made a feast for guests using goods well past their sell-by date.

Oh, they so stole this from The Simpsons!

Mmm, floor pie!

    RE: The sluts…If they didn’t dress up no one would pay any attention to them………

    RE: Floor Pie…What about the 5 second rule?

    I’ve had mixed feelings about Slut Walk. Being who I am, I cringe when I see them dressed as they are. But I also understand the sentiment behind it and what triggered it.

    I am a big one to say “If you ain’t in business, don’t advertise.” But I’ve seen some of the protests and some of the rape victims at these protests. How can an 11 year old possibly “ask for it?” What happened to accepting NO for an answer? Slut or not, rape is rape. Quit putting the focus on the victim and put the focus on the rapist. (Now the prude part of me is screaming for them to put clothes on.)

    Waitaminute here: one cop in Canada says something reminiscent of a cave man and suddenly we have Slut Walks all over the place?!?
    No, rape is not defensible. NEVER.But Slut Walks, really?
    Oh, that’s right, N.O.W. has been SO BUSY protesting the truly 12th century way in which Islamic Nations treat their women (When it’s OK to Beat Your Wife. Don’t let you wife outdoors with any skin showing or else we’ll kill you and STONE HER TO DEATH) that they just don’t have the time or resources to protest one cop’s stupidity.
    Oh, wait, that’s right, N.O.W hasn’t protested the way women are treated in “other cultures” and besides, what does that have to do with equal pay for equal work and honey, you still have to pay the check, let’s not get carried away with this equality stuff!!
    Still and all, hopefully someday, when these women are all grown up (mentally, I mean) they can explain to their daughters why they were striding down the street dressed like hookers.
    And you thought photos of you as a disco-diva from the 70′s and 80′s were embarrassing, or the “Punk Rock Look” with the orange and purple hair and black nail polish were bad, wait’ll your kids get ahold of these photos and show ‘em off to their friends!!

    The cop’s comment is more than just a comment. It is an attitude that has been very pervasive in our culture.

    Do I agree with how the women are dressing? No! Are all the women dressing like that in the Slutwalk? No. Media only shows the most shocking.

    The Walk is in reaction to the much tired attitude of blaming the victim.
    Don’t dress like a slut being the one the cop made.
    Don’t go out alone.
    Don’t be alone in a laundromat.
    Don’t go to bars.
    Don’t leave your drink alone.
    Don’t do this.
    Don’t do that.

    Heck even I made a post a while back about an article on college rape and frat parties. Don’t set yourself up to be raped.

    It puts the blame on the victim for being there to begin with.

    It’s like Denim Day in reaction to a judge in Italy who said a woman had to have been a willing participant because she was wearing tight jeans.

    I don’t wear jeans so I don’t participate in this day. I won’t participate in Slutwalk either. But I will cheer them on and I work very hard here squashing antiquated ideas about women.

    If I were to walk down the street butt naked, that does NOT give you the right to harass me. If I were drunk and passed out on your bed, you have NO RIGHT to touch me. If I were to dance with you and decided to grind myself against you and became a cock tease, that is still not consent for you to rape me.

    And yes, this is a hot button for me both as a rape survivor and as an advocate for women who are victims of domestic and sexual violence.

    As for the Islam comment, all that does is say “Well, it’s worse over there, so quit complaining.” We might not get stoned to death in actuality, but women do get stoned to death by the attitudes of cops, lawyers, court systems, loop-holes, and attitudes of the general public.

    Islam – Well, she shouldn’t have gone out by herself.
    America – Well, she shouldn’t have gone out (at night) by herself.

    What’s the difference?

    And equal work for equal pay? We’re (women) are still waiting for that. Wake me when it happens.

    Another thing about “Over there” there is (or was) a Slutwalk in New Dehli.

    What to tell their daughters? How about “Honey, please don’t go out in public because guys don’t know how to keep their dicks in their pants.” I’d rather (after making sure they’re armed) “Honey, yes, we embarrassed ourselves, but people finally realized that yes, you can go out in public and not live in fear of rape or retribution of victim blame that used to permeate our society.”

    Chris C – “Put me in coach!”

    LDIV – Kiss it up to God.

    Kim – It could have been addressed is a more mature manner – without the whorish clothing.

    Real – Funny how NOW disappears when the abuser is a liberal or a Muslim, huh?

    Kim – I plan to tell my daughter that guns are plentiful in America, and so are self-defense courses. I also plan to severely regulate her dress code. I see some pre-teens dressing like streetwalkers in church, for God’s sake! Not gonna happen here.

    Wyatt – I agree. I also plan to teach my son to respect women and treat them right. Real men don’t hit and real men accept “No” as an answer.

    I remember when a young man/boy came to my screen door and demanded to see my daughter.
    I sent a left through the screen into his nose and went outside to cuff him with his own belt.
    Cost me a new $50 screen, my girl said “Thank you daddy”
    When the po-po came [30 mins,heh] I found out that the asshole had raped her the previously week.
    I followed the case through the system to no avail.
    I will get him!

    I’m sure these erudite ladies are marching in support of their Islamic sisters for personal freedom in a modern world. I would like to see them march in certain parts of Lononistan where even the police cannot go.

    Londonistan–minus two points for spelling.
