Gutfeld: Women Take to Streets in 'Slut Walk'

Written by Greg Gutfeld / Published April 7, 2011 / Red Eye

So a bunch of women marched in Toronto in the city's first 'Slut Walk.'

The goal? To say dressing like a slut doesn't invite aggression.

According to the event's website, women "are tired of being oppressed by slut-shaming; of being judged by our sexuality and feeling unsafe as a result... Historically, the term 'slut' has carried a... negative connotation... the intent is always to wound."

So, while people all over the world fight for basic rights, these ladies march for that.

Good for them, I say. What you wear should never lead to assaults, and anyone who disagrees is dopey.

But the protest was spurred by what a cop said when speaking on safety. He said that, "Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized."

Stupid, sure. But he wasn't physically hurting women.

My point is, marching because a cop said something dumb seems weak in the face of graver threats against women.

I mean, consider sexual slavery, honor killings, punishment for being raped, executions over adultery or being gay and other Sharia law creepiness.

A feminist could march against that, but then she violates the ironclad code of diversity, i.e. that other cultures aren't bad even when they do bad things.

But marching for sluttiness? Nothing brave there.You're certainly not gonna get flack from dudes. My guess is they'll be right behind you shouting, "We love sluts" like they did at the march.

But if you can't see the lowered expectations of all this, at least think of your parents. They wouldn't like it. And that one idea keeps me from doing many things, including marching 6th Avenue in fishnets.

Well, that and the cops getting too grabby.

And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe.
