|Tramped out to drive her point home.|
The protests, which have been come to be known as SlutWalks, have now crossed the international border and entered the home of the free and the brave.
"It was taking the blame off the rapist and on the victim," said Nicole Sullivan, 21, a student at the University of Massachusetts-Boston and an organizer of the SlutWalk planned Saturday in that city.The idea of dressing cheaply and provocatively is something I am against, without question, but the greater evil here is the natural tendency for people to blame the victims for the crimes that befall them. Though such a dismissive attitude seemingly insulates the speaker from the fear of harm, it is a crime in itself which I find absolutely infuriating.
For me, I'm with the slutwalkers, heart and soul.
