Walk like a Slut!

Thousands of women are set to take to the streets in cities across the UK after the remarks of a Canadian police officer, who advised women "I've been told I'm not supposed to say this – however, women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimised."

The Cardiff SlutWalk event page on Facebook has attracted more than 260 supporters in a few days, who will – pending police approval – also march on 4 June from outside Cardiff University Students' Union, through the city to St Mary's Street. Beccy Pert, 20, one of the organisers of the Cardiff march, said the movement had struck a chord around the world. "People are fed up with the injustice of innocent people being blamed for rape and sexual assault. Comments like these only serve to shame victims into silence when they should feel no shame."

Okay guys, I can see the point of this protest walk and I support it's objectives. Women MUST be able to dress exactly as they want to and not risk assault or rape because of their choice of clothing. Women should not be assaulted or raped because of clothing. Women should not be denied justice because of their choice of clothing style.

Of course, men find it rather pleasant when women choose to dress like sluts. We get that certain feeling and enjoy the show. So come on girls, dress like sluts and walk through Cardiff and brighten up our day! On the funny side we have 2 facts involved in this story. The surname of the woman involved in the Cardiff SlutWalk is PERT - oh, laughing out loud, women, breasts and PERT! Also Beccy Pert was misquoted in earlier print editions of the Guardian newspaper as saying "Comments like these only serve to shame victims into violence"; that should have been "silence"!
