Sluts Unite!

Over the weekend I took part in SlutWalk Greensboro.  What is a SlutWalk you might ask?  Well in Toronto, on January 24th, 2011 some dick of a cop gave his view of sexual assault by stating, "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized."  Needless to say a few people were kinda pissed off, so over 3,000 people came together and marched to the front door of the Toronto Police Station on April 3rd, 2011.  Thanks to the internet this movement has taken over, with marches going on in major cities in the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia.  You can read more about it here , here and here .  It felt wonderful to be a part of such an important cause, not to mention making the signs was fun as well.  If you hear about a SlutWalk in your city you should definitely partake!
