It doesn’t take much for someone to start a movement. In this case it was a flippant remark by a Toronto police officer that launched a new cause. “Slutwalks.”
Yep….sluts from all over will be converging in such cities as Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, Reno and Austin, Texas. Saturday a “Slutwalk” took place in Boston in an effort to reclaim the word, “slut.”
I personally had no idea that the word “slut” needed to be reclaimed, or that it was in any trouble to begin with. Must have missed that one.
The Toronto police officer said that, “women should avoid dressing like sluts to avoid being raped or victimized.” This of course infuriated women, some of which I guess don’t mind being called a slut, with respect to this new set of protests taking place. My guess anyhow.
According to Nicole Sullivan, 21, a student at the University of Massachusetts and an organizer of the Boston Slutwalk on Saturday, “it was taking the blame off of the rapist and on the victim. So we are using these efforts to reclaim the word, “slut.”
Slutwalkers, unlike moon walkers, or duck walkers, or those walkers handicapped seniors use, dance to hip-hop music, wear worn T-shirts with the word, “slut” on them, and hold signs that read, “sluts pay taxes.” Some also skate around in lingerie while their male supporters wear shirts reading, “I love sluts.” I’m assuming it’s just the females that are wearing the lingerie. Can’t be sure though.
See, it doesn’t take much to create a new movement. Raise the flag in support of Sluts of America. I see the possibility of a new political movement here as well. What better place for it to start than in Boston, home of the original “Tea Party.” Perhaps this will evolve into the “Slut Party.”
And we all know, what with the recent downfall of various politicians for borderline slut activity, that this new party could very well gain momentum and become a powerful force in the 2012 elections. I might even consider supporting them, considering some of my own past indiscretions with members of their new party. I refuse to wear lingerie however.
Yes….birds of a feather flockith together.
Campaign slogans? Hmmmmm…………
“Vote for a slut…if you’re elected, you won’t ever have to resign.”
(ya have to think about that one…..um…..just think politicians=caught messing around=resignations)
Or….”A vote for a slut, will get you out of a rut, and end the defisut.” (deficit)
Observing a photograph of the demonstration in Toronto, which shows participants prancing around at the “Slutwalk” just goes to show you that sluts do indeed have more fun than non sluts.
Sluts of America…it’s time to come out of the closet. Your time to shine has arrived. Drag out those high stiletto heels. Pull out all those leather outfits. Display that cleavage with pride. Hold your heads, or boobs, up high. It’s time to stand up for the rights of all sluts.
I for one support all of you. If I myself were a slut, I’d be out there on the front lines in total support of your cause.
In the meantime, until someone makes a flippant remark about short Italian gigolos, I’ll simply have to bide my time.
Good luck sluts of America.
