Believe it or not, the Iowa City DePressed Citizen thought a group of people wearing provocative clothing going for a walk was news.
Apparently, there's a nationwide movement of "SlutWalks," based on the notion that there's a sexual double standard in play when it comes to how men and women choose to dress themselves.
Gosh, you mean a woman wearing a pushup bra with exposed neckline and a tight short skirt is viewed differently than a man with an unbuttoned shirt gyrating on the dancefloor? Who'da thunk?
Seriously, some of the people in this PC story want to be able to wear slutty looking clothing, and not be thought of as slutty.
And say, doesn't this "SlutWalk" thing happen everyday in the Ped Mall after 2am?
What a ridiculous *story*.
This "SlutWalk" accomplishes nothing. This doesn't raise awareness, it doesn't redefine what slut means and it won't prevent sexual assault. Anyone who thinks any of that has a screw loose. Look, if you don't want to get attacked by bears when salmon fishing, either pack a gun or don't go salmon fishing. If you don't want to cut your finger in the kitchen, then I would suggest you don't pursue a career as a chef. If you dress like a slut, you're going to be thought of as a slut, that's just the way it is and yes, unfortunately your dress may attract something undesireable by deciding to dress like a slut. Life is full of risks. Being risque involves some risk. No "SlutWalk" is going to change that reality.
