Amok Mama: Slutwalk

men are least in their minds. A lot of them have unhealthyfantasies regarding sex and women. Very few men actually act on these violent impulses. A slut walk isn't going to change any of that one bit and it is really the wrong strategy if you want to change anyone's behaviour at all. This sort of display simply isn't provocative in our society any more. In India, yes, perhaps.

You only need to read the comments on YouTube of the Berlin Slutwalk (frinstance: Frauen die wie Schlampen behandelt werden wollen, haben es verdient, wie Schlampen behandelt zu werden - gefickt und weggeschmissen) or The Local and you know what kind of world we live in - one that totally, totally accepts rape. And that anyone who says"Oh, actually, it's pointless and silly what those girls are doing" that they're basically pro-rape. I mean, that's basically what they are. They shouldn't bother saying "Why aren't you demonstrating against clitoris circumcision in Africa?" They should say. "Oh, but I'm pro-rape." That's all they should say.

Re: Pampered sluts

I was on the slutwalk and found that so many different groups of people were demonstrating and being represented- transexuals, lesbians, straight woman, straight men, gay men. There was a fantastic atmosphere and a real sense of camaraderie. I wouldn't agree that we're living in an all-gender-friendly society or that Northern Europe is some sort of Utopia, especially looking at recent events in the news. Unfortunately there are many causes and groups of people all across the world, as you quite rightly mention, that get overlooked, however I believe the messages and ideals behind the slutwalk were enough to make it a worthy cause.

Yeah I'm sorry SS

Not really gloriously unintegriert, only a teeny bit, but we still managed to piss off the Sarrazins anyway.

factual inaccuracies to service storytelling

actually, the question was only about the meaning of the word 'betroffen' and the so-called friend from New Zealand manages to get by fairly well in German and was carrying a bilingual German-English sign on the demo: Amok Mama is stretching the truth to score comedy points... don't believe everything you read in blogspots

Pampered sluts

I'm glad to learn that the slutwalk is all about having fun with friends - at least it makes some kind of sense. Pampered females in an all-gender-friendly society demonstrating... for what exactly??? It would surely take on a different meaning, and more 'balls' (oooops am I being sexist?) to parade as ‘sluts’ in Teheran, or Kabul. Girls, what about taking to the streets for a more meaningful, crucial cause, like child prostitution (speaking of one’s right to NOT be a slut), genital mutilation, war rape (men get raped too!), even lesbian rights… anywhere but in good old northern Europe! Even the condition of baby cows seems like a more vital issue here, and I’m a shameless carnivore!

integrieren ist viel zu schwierig

I was about to ask what was "glorious" about your friend's refusal to integrate, but then I realized that refusal to integrate is basically what exberliner is all about.
