Seconded! I believe that all people, regardless of gender, race, religion, etc., should be free from social stigmas about being openly sexual. Humans are sexual beings and there is nothing wrong with that!

I very much agree with the thoughts that victim blaming must be stopped. It makes me so angry that people walk around telling survivors that it is their fault that they got raped. And what makes it all the worse is that we feel that it is our fault.

To me, this has an air of familiarity with the "Take back the night" movement I remember being a part of years ago. I don't know if that is still going on or not.

I strongly support this "Slutwalk" and agree with the 15 year old who said that her classmates call confident girls or girls with too many male friends a slut. They've got the right idea that taking the power away from the word itself might be a step in the right direction.
