What's YOUR favorite part about participating in SlutWalk?
Hey SlutWalk lovers!
Who would YOU like to see speak at SlutWalk Denver this year?!
Anonymous asked: Where's your coverage / blog about Corey Donahue being convicted of Unlawful Sexual Contact? Failing to include his dozens and dozens of hand-to-crotch escapades and finally being held responsible for it seems pretty "non-inclusive" when it's not even touched on here.
Anonymous asked: I rather bitch about things... = Sorry, I just don't care about WOC. We all know that's what you're saying so you may as well have not. It's very telling that your response to those particular problems that you go 'mmm you're dividing us', just as op predicted.

**TRIGGER WARNING RAPE**
ceasesilence: Sometimes rape survivors feel terribly guilty about feeling turned on during the rape, or when remembering the rape. Feeling turned on is a pretty common reaction and makes a lot of sense when you consider that for people with vulvas, being turned on might mean producing lubrication, which protects your body from further injury, and for people with any kind of genitals, being...

slutwalktoronto: When a Toronto police officer said women could avoid being sexually assaulted if they didn’t dress like “sluts”, we were angry but not surprised. Sun News now reports on a Muslim street cleric spouting the same beliefs - that women are responsible for being sexually assaulted because of what they wear and they need to be told what to do by men who know better.
