Slut Walk LA June 4th 2011

647 N. San Vicente Bl West Hollywood June 4th 12pm

Have you heard of slut walk? Its a phenomenon that started in Canada and has spread world wide. Its a movement to reclaim the word “slut” and to try to end “slut shaming” In Canada an officer of the law was speaking to some students and said “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized” That’s an all in one statement. It slut shames and it victim blames. Its a double whammy and coming from a person in a position of authority in law enforcement well no bueno, really, really no bueno.  OK the officer was reprimanded and sent back to where ever they train to get well, retrained but it was the spark that started the slut walk protests. People taking to the streets to stop slut shaming our girls… all over the world.

Los Angeles is now in the mix and they have a slut walk planed for June 4th, 2011 in West Hollywood, CA and I will be there. Yes, I’m a slut. Well, I was a slut before a i was a whore. I suppose some people would still call me a slut. I’m also a female who doesn’t feel  like the shirt i chose to wear or the skit i pull up over my hot ass should be responsible for the violent act of rape.  Slut shaming needs to stop, its prevalent in or society and its hurting our girls.

I will be at slut walk LA  on June 4th to show my support and to work the SWOPLA (sex workers out reach project LA)  table. Please if you’re there come by and say hi, sign up for the SWOPLA mailing list and take to the streets and let your voice be heard… You don’t have to be a slut to participate.
