‘Every rape survivor needs compassion, not detention’ - young girl holding a sign at SlutWalk London 2012.



STILL MY FAVOURITE PICTURE FROM A PROTEST EVER



yes london



But this girl has no idea what she is even protesting. Isn’t this the same idea as the Westboro Church trying to force their children to protest something they have no information about? Yes she’s promoting love, but to me that doesn’t make the brainwashing any better. Let our children have their childhood and learn to think for themselves and then when they’re teenagers they’ll join the protest.



Wow, fuck you for acting as if these things don’t happen to kids.
I for one am super glad that the parents of this girl are teaching her about boundaries and consent. Kids are definitely smart enough to know about these things. 
Also, your’re comparing teaching your kids basic life rules to preaching hate? Wtf is wrong with you? It’s not brainwashing, it should be the bare minimum for  decent parenting.

I was the organiser of this protest. Actually this girl’s mum was an asylum seeker who got raped and then got put in a detention centre here in the UK. This girl knew exactly what happened to her mum. Asylum seeker children don’t get the same innocence that a lot of white British kids do and that’s the fault of the society we live in. I’m glad that she is protesting about it, you would be too if it was your mum. The thing with trying to promote the sort of innocence that you’re promoting is it just means that all these people’s horrific stories of injustice get shoved under the carpet and nothing gets done. Innocence is only something that privileged kids have, for the rest of us ‘innocence’ just means silencing. It’s because people like this girl have spoken up about things that her mum even has half a life in the UK today.

To this excellent commentary I’ll just add that young children are perfectly capable of understanding political struggles if you take the time and effort to engage with them. In fact, kids are naturally empathetic and don’t have to cut through all the socialized crap that adults do. My eldest daughter was trying to educate her pre-school class about Palestine before her 4th birthday. Both of my daughters held signs and participated at the NYC SlutWalk (among many other protests). We came up with the slogans and made the signs together.

For too long our society has preached, “Don’t get raped,” instead of “Don’t rape.” We have focused on the ways in which victims of sexual assault have “deserved” their assault. We have used words like “slut,” to dehumanize, delegitimize and isolate women, shaping a cultural conception that only women like “them” get sexually assaulted, and didn’t they earn it anyway? 
Slut, and words like it, have for too long blamed women for their sexual assault, and ignored that fact that men are sexually victimized as well. Slut has made sexual assault seem like a crime of lust or desire, when really it is a crime of power. In our society 1 out 4 women and 1 out of 6 men are sexually assaulted before 18. Slut has encouraged over 70% to not report, or law enforcement to not follow through on those cases. Slut has encouraged survivors to blame themselves for their assault, instead of blaming the assaulter. Slut has kept sexual assault in the shadows, when it is part of the everyday reality of the people we know. 
Even if you don’t think you know a survivor, check statistics on sexual assault, and know that you do. Now who is a slut? We will no longer be ruled by slut, we will no longer be victimized by slut.

SlutWalk Aotearoa (New Zealand)

Upcoming marches on May 20, 2012

On May 20th from 2pm, people from all walks of life will be banding together for one simple reason – we have had enough. Enough of being angry. Enough of wanting better education, awareness and treatment around sexual assault and seeing nothing. Enough of being accused of ‘oversensitivity’ and ‘political correctness gone mad’ when we object to rape jokes. Enough of the pervasive and continuing myths and stereotypes about who is sexually assaulted and why.

For those who don’t know the origins of SlutWalk, it started in Toronto, Canada when a police officer stood up at a safety talk at York University and stated, “I’ve been told not to say this… but women should avoid dressing like sluts if they don’t want to be victimised.” SlutWalk Toronto was held on April 3rd and attracted over 4,000 participants after just six weeks of organisation. Women and men of all ages marched together – most carrying placards, ranging from the humorous: “Sluts say yes!” to the heartbreaking: “I was 10 years old and he was my father. Does it really matter what I was wearing?” Some were dressed in stereotypical ‘slutty’ clothing, while others dressed for a, still fairly cold, Canadian spring afternoon.

SlutWalk is about unity. We are fighting the myths around the types of people who are sexually assaulted, who is responsible, and why they occur. We are rallying to place the blame for sexual assault where it belongs: on the perpetrators. We are promoting the idea that women should be able to dress however they like without having to wonder if they will be blamed if they are attacked – and that ‘slut’ should not be seen as an inherently bad thing. We aim to put an end to victims’ sexual history being brought up at trial as a weapon for the defence, and we wish to get the message out there: no means no, yes means yes, and only our words can consent for us – not our bodies or our clothes. We also firmly stand behind the truth that sexual assault is not only something done by men to women, and that not all sexual assault is rape.

Sluts and allies of Aotearoa, please consider joining us on May 20th for our march. Join us in our mission to spread the word that those those who experience sexual assault are not the ones at fault, without exception.
