SlutWalk in Tampa

Via Stogie: Feminist activists held a SlutWalk rally in Tampa on September 17, 2011. SlutWalk has been held around the country to raise awareness about rape. The message of the rallies is women are not asking to be raped. This shouldn't have to be stated in 2011, but there are pundits and conservative bloggers who will say the woman was "asking for it."

I have a problem with the video of the Tampa SlutWalk rally. I hate the the Nelly Furtado song "Promiscuous." Nicole Parker brilliantly parodied the song on MadTV. The song is mind-numbingly stupid and worthy of ridicule.

Teagan Alexander spoke at the Tampa SlutWalk event. Her Youtube video "My Dress Is NOT A Yes!" informs men that the way a woman dresses is not an invitation to rape. Alexander was raped.
