What is a Slutwalk? It is one of those misguided attempts by feminists to protest rape by dressing in unnecessarily sexually provocative ways. I sympathize with the desire of victims to not be blamed for rape. If a woman walked naked down a dark street, it would be stupid, but the full blame for the rape falls on the rapist.
What concerns me about events like Slutwalk is that the kind of men who commit rape are also the kind of men who would see women dressed in a provocative manner as, "She's asking for it." Rapists should not be receiving any cues or indicators that make it easier for them to justify their actions.
The real tragedy is that in places where feminists think that Slutwalk makes sense, the problem is that the dominant political culture refuses to treat violent criminals with the severity that they deserve. But rather than confront that the same political culture that glorifies sexual promiscuity and abortion also refuses to punish rape as a very serious crime, it is easier to blame traditional values -- the same traditional values that made rape a capital crime in some states, until the liberals on the Supreme Court decided that execution for rape violated the Eighth Amendment.
