A protester at the Slut Walk NYC march on Saturday. She - and Yoko Ono who first made this statement - are deeply mistaken. To make such an analogy displays her assumed white privilege and need for sympathy by relating her struggle as a white woman in america to that of african american, for whom this pejorative term has been used. Where then does this place the African American woman? I want to ask her what she was thinking but certainly that could not have been possible for a person with such gull. Her experience has no place being paralleled with that of any other and with this poster she has clearly deviated from the essential purpose of the walk which was to bring to light the reality of rape and sexual assault happening to anyone from all walks of life in pursuit to end the misplaced blaming of survivors instead of the perpetrators and to stop rape. I want to be as eloquent and politically correct as possible but this dumb white bitch needs to be slapped for her oblivious blasphemy. 

 Yes. REBLOG.

She can’t have thought that was okay to do.

Thank You.

Queer Insurrection: A Protester's Account of the Occupy Wall Street Brooklyn Bridge March

coffeeshakes:

I figured I should write down what happened today, before I forget or before too many stories get muddled together.

My friend, my partner, and I arrived at Zucotti Park around 3 for the march, which began quickly, after everyone shared various rules. (No violence, write the…

If I were reporting sexual assault I wish a cop would ask me what I wore.

Protesters Begin To "Occupy" Wall Street

#Occupy Wall Street / U.S. Day of Rage / NYC General Assembly

Protesters entered Manhattan’s Financial District Saturday for a demonstration called “Occupy Wall Street,” which is intended to last for months and which is trying to curb the influence of big business over Washington lawmakers. The counterculture magazine Adbusters and the hacking group Anonymous are among the organizers, and participants were asked to set up tents, kitchens and peaceful barricades. “CEOs, the biggest corporations, and the wealthy are taking too much from our country and I think it’s time for us to take back,” said one protester. “What I hope to accomplish is that people who have gotten in trouble on Wall Street actually pay an equal share for what they’ve done,” said another. “The difference between this and other protests of the past is that we’re not leaving, and we’re going to stay as long as it takes to accomplish something,” said a third. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Friday that the protestors have a right to be heard, as long as they do not interfere with others’ rights.
