Another Year, Another Slutwalk

Another Year, Another Slutwalk

Has it been a year already since the last time exceptionally endowed, young Israeli women walked the streets of Jerusalem, protesting the undue attention men were giving exceptionally endowed women walking the streets of Jerusalem?

The protesters, which walked in Jerusalem a couple of months after the Tel Aviv march, are sick and tired of police blaming acts of rape the attire of the victims. And while the argument they’re making is valid, the in-your-face quality of the event suggests more an expression of exasperation and rage than an attempt to educate anyone.

Also, I must admit my own bit of exasperation when looking for an image from the march that I could post on these God fearing pages.

  1. I respect the idea of modesty, but blaming women in any measure for their rape is disgusting. The support for any such belief is not there. At one time men went animal seeing an ankle, and then every additional inch of skin as suggestive, etc. We have seen throughout history the creativity of man and the ideas that fill his head and nurture and applaud it. Unfortunately we also create fantasies from what we want to imagine from what we desire most–women. It’s not them, it’s us who are responsible for that behavior and must control it without any excuses. It is a shame that these women feel a need to do this because of it.
